Magical Moments


So we have been waiting for two years to get married. Both times before covid kindly messed up our plans. Luckily everyone of our vendors were amazing and kept 2019 prices where possible.

The Honeymoon


We unfortunately have not gone on a honeymoon yet as we have not had the funds.

Wedding Gallery


My Special Day

My wedding dress was unique, it was an infinity dress from Infinity Dress South Africa. I was fortunate enough to have ny friend, Ashleigh Botes, do my hair and my other friend, Shannen Mills, do my makeup. My necklack pendant was my grans ring which I had redesigned. The chain was my grans chain. I wore my mums earrings. Everything I wore made my day even special as it all held memories.

The Venue

We got married at Calderwood Hallm Boston, South Africa. Wow what an amazing venue, all our guests were able to stay the night and we partied all through the night.

My Bridal Beauty Regime

I am a pretty calm person when it comes to this. The only thing I made sure I had done was my toe nails painted, finger nails painted and my hair was cut and coloured.

Wedding Elements

My decor was all handmade by my mum, my sister and myself. I had my mums friend, Mignon Botha, do the flower arrangements and the bouquets.

My Groom And His Groomsmen

My handsome groom wore a suit which we bought at China Mall. We didnt want to spend an excessive amount on a suit and wow he looked dapper! The groomsmen all wore something comfortable and the ties were bought for them by the groom.

Beautiful Bridesmaids

The bridesmaids wore a burgundy dress with detail on the bodice. We bought the also at China Mall. Amazing what you can find at these types of shops.

Marriage Officer

Our marriage officer was beulah Haasbrook

My Captured Moments

Our photographer was Elsie Baker and our videographer was her wonderful husband Gary Baker from Elsie B Photography. We could not have asked for ajyone better. They were amazing!
