Beautiful Bridesmaids

I decided to dress my beautiful girls in beautiful comfortable maroon dresses as this was our wedding colours, we also went for a basic, elegant look.

Marriage Officer

Our marriage officer was Ds. Willie Coetzee from the Lewensentrum church in Alberton.

My Captured Moments

Our photographer Rina Coetzee “b-you wedding photography” was absolutely excellent.

The Wedding Planner

Our wedding venue had a planner part of the package . Which I thought was absolutely great! Lea was so helpful and when it came to our wedding day I did not have to worry about anything.

Wedding Transport

We did not arrange for any transport as the reception, the church and our overnight stop were all situated on the premises of the venue.

Food & Cake

The venue prepared our food which was a three course meal- canapés for straters, main meal and dessert ( including our wedding cake for dessert) Our wedding cake was made by a lady in Brits “Busy bee bakery”.

Wedding Stationery

Because we got married in the middle of Summer in November we decided on having waters with a special label on for our guests as they walked into the church. Our thank you gifts were Kit- Kats with a printed wrapper around it.
This was all made by a lady named Mellony all the way from Kimberley “Glinster Glans”.

The Reception and Entertainment

Our DJ was the best!! We did not take any dance lessons, we just went with a more natural flow. Our DJ was Sean Duncan “Dj 2 Hire” We danced all night until curfew!
