Magical Moments


From the time I woke up until the end of our day it was just amazing I still have dreams about our wedding day as it was absolutely wow.
Walking into the church seeing my husband waiting for me at the end of the aisle was just like the world disappeared as I just kept my eyes on him not to ever forget that moment.
After the ceremony, having an artist sing our first song that we danced to was just out of this world and words can't really describe the moment as we danced and chatted.
I had a little surprise line dance planned for my husband as we did a cowboys themed wedding and he absolutely loved it.

The father-daughter dance for me was just a moment I always wanted with my dad and will forever treasure that special moment.

The Honeymoon


No, it was difficult to go away due to Covid

My Special Day

So I had one top dress, but two bottom parts as we took photos 4 days before the wedding with a different bottom and I wore the full white dress on the day when I walked into the church. We had a cowboy themed wedding so I wanted to go for a natural look. For the ceremony I went for an all glamour look with lots of diamonds, but still bring in the blue for the color of the wedding. The blue bottom dress was so I could have fun on the day and dance all night.

Dress was made by Frane Modes, Hair was done by Forever Hair, Make up by Beautiful Change.

The Venue

Diamond Hill Venue close to Rayton, it is a beautiful venue and the service and food was excellent.

My Bridal Beauty Regime

I didn't really have a full on regime, but I went to Ozopod for a bit of detoxing.

Wedding Elements

My decor and theme was very natural with very few flowers. Janine from Rental Villages is amazing and did all the vases, flowers and candles and set up the venue just as I wanted it.

My Groom And His Groomsmen

The Groom wore his jean and boots with a cream shirt, brown waistcoat, bolo tie and a leather hat.
He was dressed by Frane Modes and Coquis.

Beautiful Bridesmaids

They were just so sweet on the day keeping me relaxed and just having a good time. I love them too bits. They wore jean shirts with a cream chinese cut shirt and boots all made by Frane Modes. The girls also wore leather belts that were made by Matt & Milly Handmade Leather Products - Lesley-Anne is absolutely amazing with what she makes.

Marriage Officer

It was a friend

My Captured Moments

NKS Photographer did both photos and videos of the pre-wedding shoot and on the day. They are accommodating, friendly and their work is just wow. I am so thankful for everything they had done.

Food & Cake

The food was made by the owner of Diamond hill and we couldn't have asked for anything better. People went back for seconds and thirds and to this day I still hear how great the food was. Our wedding cake was a cheese cake which was assembled by Diamond Hill, but bought from Hoekplaas Cheesery. The cheese is out of this world and I will buy any cheese items there again.

Wedding Stationery

So the name tags were key rings made by Matt & Milly Handmade Leather Products - Lesley-Anne and my wooden stands, ring holder, horse shoes and menu was made by Liqerish Laser & Print - Janine was so accommodating with everything.

The Reception and Entertainment

We did go for dance lessons at Dance Equation and Claire and Gary was just WOW we had such a great time dancing and learning from them.
We had Appel from Vocal Events entertain us for the afternoon and he is such an amazing person and was so accommodating with us as the wedding party and all the guests.
Dw Audio-backline arranged our DJ for the day and just made the day extra special with all our requests and reading the guests like a book with playing all the correct songs the dance floor was never empty.
