My moments, well the whole day was one memorable moment that I would want to do over and over again. It was literally the best day of my life. Highlights for me was the photoshoot and the first dance, the Arch made at the end of the night for me and hubby to exit. Another memorable moment was the speeches made by everyone, and also the gift received from my brother. The photobooth was one of the highlights of the night as well and people really enjoyed that. Taking off of the garter and throwing of the bouquet.
Yes we did, we went to a holiday house in Port Owen, West Caost
My wedding look - My hair was done by a stylist named Jade van de Post (friend of a relative who works independently and also for a salon now), my hair was in a up bun, 2 soft curls to the side of my face and curls made into a bun on top of my head. Make up was done by Alexandra Johnson who works independently - soft natural look, very beautifully. Wedding dress was a white princess style with lace arms and V neck line dress, veil was long. My dress was hire from 'My Unique Wedding' in Claremont, Cape Town. I wore gold shoes semmi high but comfortable. I wore lace underwear and silver jewellery (earings, necklace and princess crown).
The ceremony was held in my church (Corpus Christi Catholic Church), and reception was at Cape Point Vineyards, Noordhoek. No guests stayed over.
There was no bridal beauty regime really, only took care of my hair and went for teeth cleaning.
'Rosy's Décor' did our décor and flowers and setting up of the venue which included the tables, table cloths, and chairs.
The groom wore a grey suit, with a royal blue bow tie and royal blue waste coat. The groomsmen wore grey suits with a royal blue tie and grey waist coat. Accessories was their watches and sunglasses. They hired their suits at Smart Men Suit Hire in Ottery Hyper, Cape Town.

Their look was inspired by a style noted on the internet but with a slight change to the design according to elegancy which was the focus of the wedding. Their dresses was made by 2 local dress makers who happens to be sisters, named, Ayesha and Gadija. They had a silver belt around the waist to the match the theme which was, royal blue with a touch of silver and/or white.
