Magical Moments

 

This is such a hard question as the whole day for me was a memorable one, especially because we are dealing with a pandemic as a country and we have lost so many loved ones and close people to it and that includes my big brother and father in- law. So the day for me and my family was so special because it brought joy, it brought smiles in our faces again. The day meant so much for us.

I am from the Eastern Cape (EC), King William's Town but my husband and I stay in Cape Town. All my family Is in the EC and his in Durban. We got married in Stellenbosch CT and our biggest worry initially was that our families would somewhat feel out of place at our wedding as it was not home ground for them, but the beautiful surprise was to see everyone having such a great time, owning the stage, dancing and being so comfortable and happy. This has to be my highlight.

The Honeymoon

 

We spent our honeymoon in Mpumalanga - Hazyview at lodges called Timamoon and Tanamera lodge. We had thee most tranquil experience. The scenery, food and place was just absolutely amazing.

My Special Day

My look was simple, elegant and classy. My gown was designed by RobynRoberts bridal based in Mowbray CT. I was 100% happy with my dress. Working with her was an absolute pleasure.

The Venue

We got married at Brenaissance Wine and Stud farm in Stellenbosch.
A few of our guests/ close friends and family members stayed in the venue with us. The venue is a 'one stop' venue. Wedding venue, accommodation, Restaurant all available at one place. It was super convenient and the stuff is amazingly friendly. The venue accommodates 34 guests in total

My Bridal Beauty Regime

Leading up to the wedding, I kept a routine of exercising atleast 3 times a week @Virgin Active, with a low carb diet. Also tried staying hydrated and making sure I have enough sleep and rest because that routine automatically helps me with keeping my skin healthy looking.

Wedding Elements

Our wedding theme was white and gold. We had fresh white flowers all over the Ceremony and Reception area. Cutlery, glasses and crockery had gold rims. We had a wedding planner who made all the magic happen. She was super amazing and she saved us a lot of money and kept to the budget without composing quality. Her name is Mekyla from Topshelfweddings. Instagram handle @topshelfweddings. Also see service provider details below :
