A highlight was definitely getting ready in the most beautiful space at vnl Residence and being able to share this moment with the most special women in my life.
Our ceremony was a really special moment. I had my grandmother walk me down the aisle. Seeing Thato’s face which was filled with so much love, him crying when I was saying my vows. Our ceremony was just filled with so many precious and intimate moments.
Another highlight was our reception entrance. It was absolutely fun and unexpected, we had our guests wanting more.
For our honeymoon we spent four a nights at Saseka Tented Camp in Thornybush. It was a picture perfect getaway. This was a spectacular curated bush experience. This was one of the most beautiful architecture and design spaces we have ever stayed in.
My wedding look was classical. I really wanted a timeless look.
