The Venue

We got married at Rondekuil in Durbanville. 12 guests stayed over.

My Bridal Beauty Regime

I used Nivea toner, day- and night cream for 3 months leading up to the venue.
I stayed away from the sun to prevent sunburn.
I applied nivea cream to my body every night after showering

Wedding Elements

I came across a lovely lady on Facebook to do our flowers for the ceremony and the reception. As well as bouquets. The arch and chairs was rented from All things wedding

My Groom And His Groomsmen

They all rented pants at Mr Suit Hire. The Groom rented the whole suit, groomsmen only wore a navy blue pants with a long shirt- sleaves rolled up

Beautiful Bridesmaids

I gave my bridesmaid the option to get their own dresses. As long as the colour was the same. I had a bridesman (my best friend) who wore suspensers to stand out

Marriage Officer

Ds. Wynand Breytenbach

My Captured Moments

We used Ryan van Rooyen. The best! He made us all so comfortable and it never felt akward posing. We just bought props and made our own photobooth

The Wedding Planner

No, I planned it myself

Wedding Transport

The bride and groom tribe slept over at the wedding the previous night. All guests came on their own the day of the wedding.

Food & Cake

My aunt! Its good to know someone in the bussiness. She made the pre- snacks and the wedding cake. It was AMAZING! Our main meals was provided by Rondekuil

Wedding Stationery

I got a lady on facebook who made the most incredible gifts, underplates and more

The Reception and Entertainment

We practised at home a week before the wedding. We were planning on taking dance lessons but I broke my ankle at my Batchelors. Atleast my moonboot was off by the time I walked down the isle.
We made use of DJ Jinx (Jean Smit)
