Magical Moments

 

The highlight of our day was probably walking down the isle to my husband and finally having that moment of saying ‘wow, we finally made it’! We have been together for 10 years, and to finally have had that moment and day happen was unbelievable. Every moment was special.

The Honeymoon

 

We went to Paris and Amsterdam for 2 weeks!
This was our dream honeymoon destination and to actually have experienced this, made everything so much worth it.

The culture and everything else is so much different than South Africa but we enjoyed every moment! Our words cannot do any justice on how amazing it was! It was a dream come true.

My Special Day

My wedding look was very modern yet classy and sexy! I went for a bush of curls in my hair done by ‘Nique on Fleek’ and matching makeup which was a smokey an daring look with a nude lipstick also done by ‘Nique on Fleek’! https://www.facebook.com/niqueonfleekmua/

I had two wedding dresses, one that was a enzoani designer dress hired in from Weddings by Design, Terry and Suzette are stunning ladies — and a dress made by a lady called Delia Perriera which is stunning and such a good dressmaker! I then purchased myself some gorgeous shoes from Steve Madden to match.

The Venue

We tied the knot at Weltevreden Estate in the beautiful Stellenbosch, from ceremony to the after party. It is child friendly, a lot of shade for those summer weddings and the staff are so friendly. We stayed over on the estate the entire weekend and had guests over on the Estate too. The venue was a fairytale, so many greenery and the best of all we had our reception party in the beautiful Maze!
Check them out at https://www.weltevredenestate.com/

My Bridal Beauty Regime

I had a glow massage from Lanzerac Spa to get my skin glowing and to make my body feel more relaxed a day before the time. It was heaven.

I also got my eyebrows waxed and tinted by Nique on Fleek in Brackenfell.

My nails was also done by Lucinda from Lavish Nails in Somerset West. I went for a french ombre look with swarovski crystals in a coffin shape nail. She is so good at what she does! http://lavishnailcouture.mystrikingly.com/

Eyelashes was done by Marizaan from Blinkx eyelash studio in Somerset West too.

Perfection!

Wedding Elements

The decor was done by Blooming Wonderful, we went with very modern colours with lots of flowers such as latte roses, orchids, hydrangeas, baby's breath etc. https://bloomingwonderful.co.za/

We had many rose gold and black elements with white shades.The reason as to why we used so many flowers were mainly because the reception was in a maze with already so many greenery so in the end everything came out gorgeously! The theme was very modern, elegant and classy with a small touch of whimsicalness!

The flowers was done by Paradiso Flowers in Somerset West, Marida and Leylani was stunning! https://paradiso.co.za/

Our pre-drinks are had comfy furniture for the guests and this was provided by ABC Event Furniture hire! http://www.abchire.co.za/
