The fact of my wedding being planned in one day, was an absolute overwhelming feeling and blessing in disguise. On the same day, having to choose all the vendors, literally choose our clothing and get ready for the day. Special memories was being able to plan it with my husband, fiance at the time. Walking down the aisle with my dad was a dream come true and was definitely very emotional for me. The venue was absolutely breathe taking, I could not have asked for a better venue, with everything we wanted and more, from the outdoor ceremony to the indoor reception overlooking the beautiful dam ducks in it. The photos was absolutely a dream, we had the most amazing photographer, Elri du Plessis, She made us feel so at ease and comfortable with one another. How can I forgot the most overwhelming memory, my husband had to go and choose my wedding dress :) Our kids were looking absolutely beautiful and made beautiful ring bearers. Every single moment up until the end was and emotional journey. When we said our I Do's and signed our papers, it was set in stone and that is a moment that we will never forget.
Unfortunately, due to financial circumstances we were not able to go on honeymoon yet, we are really hoping to do so in the near future, as it has always been our dream to do so after our wedding day.
We had a Dusty pink rustic theme, with lots of greenery. I had an upstyle that was a messy bun, make up was red lips, with a smoky eye, pinkish cheeks and added mascara(Clarice and Essence). My hair and make-up was done by Lindie Lu Makeup. I had a lace top wedding dress with a bit of a loose straight cut to cover and make space for my belly - by Erin Greyling Wedding Lab. Shimmery Rose Gold wide heel sandal, bought at Shoerama. Lingerie, lace underwear, bunny ear silicone bra. Long rose gold earrings from Accessorize.
I took myself and maid of honor for a mini spa treatment at Sorbet in Somerset Mall.
Webersburg Wine Estate used their own vendors and I just has to choose the decor, which was rose gold, dusty pink and some greenery, with white gysophila flowers. Lighting was beautifully setup by the decor team, I opted for fairy lights.
The groom wore a navy suit, white shirt and rose gold from Keith's Suit Hire in Somerset West. The groomsman wore a suit that he had readily available that was the exact colour that we were looking for.
I only had my maid of honor and she wore an infinity dress, that had rose gold shimmery beads on top and the rest was a light rose gold colour - Locally sourced from Mrs Fielies from Macassar.

Our photographer is the amazing Elri du Plessis. She has an instagram and facebook page that goes by the name of Elri Photography. We immediately clicked with her, she is so kind and genuine, just a real people's person, I told her what idea I had in mind regarding pictures, and she could assist us perfectly. We took photos in different areas of the venue, no photo booth was used.
For me this is such a funny question, probably because we had to plan everything on the day of our wedding because we were on the VIA tv show called, Eendag. Everything happened on the day and we had to plan it ourselves, while the VIA team were recording us.
We made use of our own car, as we got dressed and did everything at the venue.
We had nothing printed beforehand.
We took our own dance lessons at home. We had a DJ from V & E Entertainment (Dj services and special effects).
