The Wedding!

Hey guys!!

It’s been forever! How are you all doing? I’ve gone through a lot since the last post but happy to back again πŸ™‚
Most of all I am happy to share the best day of my life with you! The day I got married to the most wonderful person on the planet. On march 14th we tied the knot at the Granary in Richmond Hill, Port Elizabeth. The venue was perfect and we had about 40 guests. A small and intimate wedding with a lot DIY and urban, rustic glam.

It truly was the perfect wedding for us, and it was very US πŸ˜‰
I am now a married woman and it feels amazing ❀

2015 – so it begins.

Hey everyone – been a long time now. Seriously long. Sorry about that but life got in the way again. So busy with with all the wedding planning πŸ™‚ Only about a month and half left until the big day!
Soooooo excited!

Went down to Cape Town last weekend to celebrate another wedding, between my fiancΓ©s brother and his now wife. The wedding was beautiful and her dress was stunning. Had such a great time dancing the night away with all the lovely people.

Black and white friday

Hey guys πŸ™‚
Been busy times with all the wedding planning going on. You make plans and they change and you have to make new plans. Things add up quickly cost wise and you have to try to stick a to budget otherwise you’ll end up spending half a fortune. I’m hoping things will calm down a bit a bit soon though, within the next couple of weeks. Just need to get a few things organized then I can stop stressing too much haha.

Got a busy day ahead – but right now all I’m gonna do is chill on the couch for 20 mins listen to music and drink coffee! πŸ™‚

Sharing some of my favorite photos from my shoot with photographer Tegan Smith check the other ones here and here.

In Sweden.

After the Barcelona trip I went Sweden. Had to sort out all my boxes with stuff standing at my parents house. I left South Africa with a bag that weighed 15kg and came back with it weighing 21kg plus my handbag stuffed and a extra bag of 8kg as hand luggage haha. I still have a moving box full of stuff that I have to get here soon.

Didn’t really have time to do much and I missed out on seeing some of my friends – sorry guys 😦 next time!!
I did however get to see my bff Anna that I haven’t seen in 6 years!!!!! Crazy how quickly time goes by… But it felt like we saw each other the other day haha. We walked around in StrΓ€ngnΓ€s and had breakfast and lunch and chatted. So good to see her πŸ™‚

I had to wear the same outfit almost every day hahaha I had packed for summer but when I arrived in Sweden it was only 10 degrees…

My lovely manicure and my lovely ring ;) Only took me 2 weeks to heal my finger haha. Had to get the ring fixed one more time yesterday though to get the size right. Which means that when Ryan proposed I put a ring on that was 2 Β½ sizes too small hahaha.

Saturday’s outfit and ring issues

Hellooooo πŸ™‚
The weekend is over – hope you all had a fabulous one!
It’s been quite the interesting morning for me…. last night my finger starting swelling up so I spent about 3 hours trying to get my new beautiful engagement ring off. It just would not come off. I tried elevating my arm, putting ice on my finger, using soap, using oil, I tried pushing glad wrap in under the ring to pull it off but nothing helped. So I went back to bed waking up like every 10 mins just to make sure my finger was still above my head and wasn’t turning purple. It was a pulsating, throbbing feeling and my finger felt like it wanted to explode. So this morning Rodney my amazing jeweler came by and had to cut it and bend it open so that I could get it off. Now a few hours after – my finger is still swollen but the pressure inside is going away. Will have to make the ring a bit bigger haha. Thats what you get for pushing a ring on your finger!

That’s how sexy my finger looked hahaha. Like a little balloon!

 

Anyway now that that is over – here is what I wore on saturday when I got proposed to πŸ˜‰ ❀
