Married on Sep 17, 2022 in Limpopo

Magical Moments


The most memorable moments were when I saw my husband when I got to him and he was so stressed but the way he looked at me just made me feel so loved.
When I finished with my bridesmaids when they saw my dress and my after I got dressed, their faces just lit up.
Something fun when we had to rush to a spesific sight to get the sunset photo that turned out perfect.

And lastly that the whole day was perfect, nothing went wrong in my eyes and it was amazing.

The Honeymoon


We did go on honeymoon, and it was something we both enjoyed so much, my husband had to change our honeymoon plans due to finances, but he made the honeymoon experience so fun, we overnight at 3 different places in the Hoedspruit area and it was all fun and very exciting.
