Magical Moments


My mom walked me down the aisle and my three sisters were the bridesmaids.
Our 4 legged child brought the ring in although she was shy, Antoni best man had to carry her to the front but that made it even more special.
Antoni did his thank you speech in the form of a prayer which caught everyone off guard and was really special.

The Honeymoon


We were supposed to go to Whispering Waters in Kwazulu-Natal. But unfortunately due to covid and the closure of Gauteng borders we could not go and had to postpone our honeymoon for now.
