It was such a privilege having my daughter arrange a make up artist, take complete control and making sure that her mama is looking like a goddess.
Having my son come from Cape Town to walk his mama down the aisle.
Having a tango dance partner come to our home to snap pictures of us before heading off to the venue.
Needless to say, our entire day was special to us.
No! We had just bought a house and decided to renovate instead of travelling.
I decided to be a goddess, a movie starlit for my special day.
My dress was from "Silk Stitches", off white with a boat neck, very regal. I added elegant long gloves, wore a diamante/gold crown and pearl earrings. I have embraced my natural grey hair which was styled by "Iambrett" My makeup was done by a talented "Nonny" I wore one of my dance shoes, off white to complete my look.
We had our ceremony and celebration at the Jaquar Land ROver Experience, 1 Capricorn Drive, Lonehill.
An enchanted garden luncheon.........very intimate
I had a 3xday week personal fitness routine with Ivan Hunt. My facial products is Isabella Garcia, loads of water daily
I provided the decor. Gold lanterns hanging above with white wisteria, natural colours of gold, white, green overlays plaited over centre of table with acorns and fairy lights. White draping
Groom was very casual with camel chino, white shirt, camel waist coast and camel ascot to finish the look. We had no groomsmen
We had no bridesmaids
A friend from Cape Town, Mandla officiated
I planned it all personally
Lol, My husband and I drove ourselves to our wedding
The venue, The Local Culture (TLC) restaurant on the 1st floor
Instead of a traditional wedding cake, I opted for 2x bundt cakes incorporated into the sweets menu
I had the names of my guests written (calligraphy style) on heart shaped disks which they could take home and place on the Christmas tree to remember our special day. These were done by a friend of mine, Bridget
I am a dancer and one of our DJ'S played for me. It was a mixture of Argentine Tango and Salsa
