Tell us about your hair and makeup look
and the accessories you chose…
I chose to keep my hair and makeup as natural as possible, with just light wavy hair and minimal make up. My pearl earrings were custom made by Karin at Dear Rae, and my wedding bands by Kasia Jewelry. I of course had to go with the GLL long pearly veil too, which I felt complimented the classic simplicity of my Summer dress.
What made your day extra special?
We turned our wedding into a week of celebrations in and around Cape Town, as well as on the wine farm, so on the day it was so special to have everyone together again for one last time to celebrate our union – it was a big party with only our closest friends and family, which made it extra special to us!
The funniest moment on the day was…
