This wedding will transport you into a magical world where Cinderella and Prince Charming are a reality. Every detail of this event was well thought out and so beautifully executed that it could put a styled shoot to shame! 

Chanel and Wessel chose the gorgeous Avianto Estate in South Africa as their venue, and for good reason! The picturesque cream coloured and teracotta stone buildings, along with interiors full of gold coloured detailing, created the perfect setting for their fairytale Wedding. 

"The feel we wanted for our dream day was  romantic, soft and elegant. Very Dreamy. We wanted it to feel like a real life fairytale. And it was."

Chanel chose the Maggie Sottero 'Chandra' gown which was absolutley perfect for the theme, style and setting. We couldn't have imagined a more suitable wedding for this gown to feature in! 

"In all honesty the whole Gown was perfect.The first time I tried on the gown I just knew that this is my dream gown. The soft tulle and all the detail on the bodice was beyond words. A real-life Cinderella Gown."

The hair, the makeup, the shoes, the gown - Chanel became a real life Cinderella.  With the incredibly talented photography skills of the team at Little White Ribbon Photography, every detail has been captured beautifully to make a wedding album every girl would envy.

"I waited for this day for so long and when all my dreams came true it was the most amazing feeling i could ever have. Knowing that I'm marrying my best friend and true love of 16 years was the best feeling ever. That moment when I saw him waiting for me in front of the Chapel standing in awe, that was the most incredible moment. Having all our loved ones around us laughing and enjoying themselves made our day complete."

"My extremely talented Mother and wonderful Father counted as my own personal wedding planners. My mom, dad,  talented brother with the most incredible voice, mother in-law and sister in-law created all the smaller detailed items in our wedding. That completed our perfect picture. Without them our day would not have been so special."
