August Wrap Up

So I went shopping the other day and was utterly SHOCKED when I saw Mince Pies!
Mince Pies guys, like WHERE is this year going to?

And while we are cuddled up inside and enjoying the cold weather while it lasts (winter lover over here!) I will admit that the thought of spring on the way is oh so exciting!

After a whopper of a July wrap up, August is a bit quiet but never the less, here are our top picks for August.

  1. Gauteng Directory Launch
    Something that was in the works for so long – we finally got our Gauteng Directory up and running! Our first members have been introduced to our readers and we cannot wait to load the next lot (coming soon – keep your eyes peeled!) If you would like to have a look at our Gauteng Directory, click here.
  2. Pre wedding visits
    I don’t know how we always find the tear jerkers, but this one just pulls at the heart strings so PLEASE get a tissue ready!
    When Tara’s granny was put in hospice, her last goal was to be at Tara’s wedding. Unfortunately, she was nearly 103 and not fit for travel. So Tara slipped away one weekend, with her unaltered wedding dress in hand, and went to surprise her Nan. Tara describes it as one of the greatest nights of her life as she shared those moments with her gran. Sadly, 27 days later her Nan passed away. These photos capture the most most beautiful moments of this meeting and we are sure Tara will treasure them for ever!
  3. Demi Leigh celebrates her Bridal Shower
    A bridal shower out of every girls dreams! Demi was spoilt by her nearest and dearest at the most amazing shower hosted at Duck Point Venue in the Vaal. We have total FOMO as this looked like the most amazing day – there even seemed to be a skincare demo where you could put together your own products, how cool?
    If this is what her Bridal Shower looked like, we cannot wait to see the magic that will be her wedding day!
  4. Amanda Oleander gets hitched!
    Now, you might be saying, who? But as soon as you see her work, you will go ohhh! Amanda’s art is famous all over Instagram and Brides shared her special day, complete with an illustration lovingly done by Amanda as a gift to her hubby! We love this!
  5. Love me like you do!
    This one snuck up on us, but we just had to share. Ellie Goulding said “I do” to the man of her dreams yesterday at York Minster surrounded by family and friends (which included a few royals!) Her bespoke Chloe dress has us over here with the biggest heart eyes and the first kiss photo they shared is oh so amazing. (Matt Porteous is the man behind the magical pic!)
    We hope that their life is filled with all the love, but we are left wondering, what was there first dance song!?

    And that’s a wrap for August! Short and sweet! 

    If you have anything coming up in September that you would love to share or you think may inspire other brides, be sure to hit us up at
