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 :)
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 ;)
I am now a married woman and it feels amazing <3

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 :) 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 fiancés 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 :)
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! :)

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

Casual neutrals

Gooooood morning :) It’s FrrriiiiiiiiiiiiDaaaaayyyyy :):)

What are you guys planning for the weekend? Ryan’s parents are coming today and will be here until next week :)  Will probably also continue on with the wedding planning haha. Getting there now! I feel like I’m getting something done every day :)

It’s freezing here this morning and the weather will probably not get any better. Expecting stormy weather this weekend. So I’m gonna share some sunnier photos with a very casual outfit in neutral colors. Most of my clothes are black, white, grey or beige haha. Love it. DSC_0058DSC_0060DSC_0057DSC_0059DSC_0052DSC_0054 DSC_0055DSC_0053

The LBD and wedding planning

Good morning!
My wedding planning is now happening 24 hours a day haha I even plan stuff in my dreams! But we are getting there. Quite a few things checked off the list already.
And even more stuff waiting to be checked off :P
The trickiest parts I’m dealing with now is finding an officiate and outfits for everyone to wear. Found my dress already and will order it as soon as possible. But what I have in mind for my bridesmaids is very hard to find. Guessing its just the wrong season, need to look closer to summer. The same goes for the groom and groomsmen’s outfits. Wrong season. Cant wait for the shops to get their summer stuff in. And to find someone to officiate at the wedding is a lot harder than I thought. But I’m gonna keep on looking…

You guys were so sweet and seemed to like the LBD outfit I posted from my trip to Barcelona. So here is another way of wearing the same dress :)

Hello lovely people :)
Hope your weekend was awesome!
Ryan and I had a very chilled friday. On saturday morning we went over to Martin and Nikkis house for breakfast. And after that I met up with Taryn at Primis for lunch and drinks. Had a great time :)
Yesterday Ryan, Emilio and I went for a drive to visit the wedding venue we were interested in. LOVED it!!! So now we are just looking at the numbers and will book it as soon as possible :) YAY :):)
It’s been a lot of wedding planning going on here at home since I got back from Sweden. So many things to do but it’s seriously soooooo much fun :D
I already bought my wedding shoes last week hehe. Now I’m going to do some more planning ;)
Hope you have a fab monday <3

Here is a outfit that I wore last month but never got to post… Ready to go out for a couple of drinks ;)

Dressing up a very casual top by adding ankle boots and a mini skirt.

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 Strängnäs and had breakfast and lunch and chatted. So good to see her :)

Another day. Lena treated me the whole day and I got my nails done with french gel manicure.

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 ½ sizes too small hahaha.

After getting my manicure and doing a bit of shopping Lena and I had lunch outside at a restaurant in Enköping. The crayfish cocktail was amazing!

I also had my friend Erica visit me quickly which was awesome! :)
And I got to spend a day with my mom in Västerås :) We went to a mexican restaurant for lunch and then ran around town in the rain going from shop to shop looking at things and chatting and trying not to get soaked haha. We had coffee at two different places and my mom made it feel like it was my birthday haha :) So lovely <3

Wish I had taken more photos in Sweden… but I had a great time.
