How would you describe your style in 3 words?
Minimal, feminine and modern

What was the highlight of your wedding day?
I am originally from South Africa, so being able to share this beautiful country with our family and friends from around the world was so special. The Boschendal Wine Estate is stunning, so we had to do very little in terms of decoration. Everywhere you look, you see mountains!

What made your dress perfect for you and how did you know it was ‘the dress’?
I actually struggled to really know if it was the ‘the dress’ but after my second fitting, when I tried on my actual dress, in my size, I just felt so comfortable. It’s a pretty modern and clean shape, yet sexy with the open back and tight fit.

What did you like most about your experience at Wild At Heart Bridal?
The ladies at WAH all have passion for weddings and fashion, and you can feel that when you’re there in the beautiful boutique. They also gave me tips for jewelry, shoes and what to wear under the gown too. During my final fitting, I paired my dress with a flower comb by Luna Bea Bridal, and it just added that final touch I wanted for the reception and dancing part of the wedding.

What advice do you have for other brides planning their wedding day?
It sounds cliché, but don’t sweat the small stuff. You end up focusing on or stressing about things that no one else notices. So really try to enjoy the planning process and focus on the stuff you actually like to do.
