Magical Moments


The most memorable moment...I can name a few.

When I saw the love of my life, my mooka, my husband being emotional as I walk down the isle. That alone warmed my heart...

When we shared our first kiss as Mr and Mrs Makinta

When I shared my first dance with my father as he hardly dances of late.

The one that really warmed heart was when my father in law danced during his speech, as that's how he expresses his happiness

Infact the whole wedding was memorable as I witnessed my family's joy

Wedding Gallery


My Special Day

I got my wedding dress, gown, accessories and veil at Bride & Co

My look was morden rustic and my hair and make up were done by local business in my hometown

The Venue

I got married at a very beautiful rustic venue based in Pretoria, @Venue Nouveau. My guest stayed @Kammafrans and we also slept in their honeymoon suite.

My Bridal Beauty Regime

The only thing I did was to change my diet as I wanted to lose a bit of weight and I knew me changing my diet would also benefit my skin as I made it a point that I also drink a lot of water and went to the dentist

My Groom And His Groomsmen

The Groom wore a tuxedo, black bowtie, white tuxedo shirt and black tuxedo shows and Groomsmen wore 3 piece suits with rose pink ties( to match the ladies )and white sneakers.

Beautiful Bridesmaids

Mt bridesmaids wore rose/dusty pink dresses with Beige shoes

They bought their dresses at Oriental Plaza and jewelery and shoes at different retail shops

Marriage Officer

My marriage officer was my pastor, pastor O.J Molobela

My Captured Moments

Mr Lood Goosen photography did an outstanding job one of South Africa's best I've got to say myself.

I could have not asked for more, they did an excellent job and are very friendly and put one at ease

I had the option of using the photo booth but I didn't take that option.

The Wedding Planner

The nice thing about the venue I picked is that they provided one, it was like a one stop shop...they did almost everything for me

Wedding Transport

Since everything was done at the venue my guests and myself used our own cars as we saw no need to hire out cars...

Food & Cake

The wedding venue did and their food is so delicious, they did am outstanding job. Compliments to thir stuff what amazing people they are.

Wedding Stationery

My husband and I printed our own stationary. We bought our stationary at PNA

The Reception and Entertainment

We had a dance routine with the bridesmaids and groomsmen, we know how to dance so it wasn't that difficult to come up with a routine.

For the other dances like our first dance and father daughter dance we freestyled and should I say what a blast we had.

The venue provided us with their own DJ
