    My Sister's Big Fat Russian/South African Wedding

    Ok, So I've really been MIA the past 2 weeks, my sister got married yesterday on 12.12.12 at a Magical Venue called Toadbury Hall ... and there was just tons of things to do beforehand and much running around (yes, in heels). 

    The Hall at Toadbury Hall
    It was all worth it as yesterday I witnessed my Beautiful Little Sister marry the man of her dreams! My sister made the Most Beautiful Bride EVER, and I almost shed many tears of happiness (the only thing that stopped me was the fact that my mascara was too expensive to be running down my face).

    My beautiful Little Sister
    My sister chose Amazing Photographers: Carolien and Ben, a husband and wife team who just capture amazing moments in time (I know this from the engagement shoot they did for my sister and her husband) and I just can't wait to see the photos from the evening!

    So below: A few photo's from the Wedding (Yes, from my iPhone)

    Getting Ready ... The Champagne is a MUST! ;)
    Something Blue
    The Lovely Chapel at Toadbury Hall
    Rings and Coffee
    The First Dance
    I even caught the Bouquet :)
    My Super Proud Parents and my Beautiful Sister
    The 2 Best-est Friends a Girl can have!  
    The 2 most important Ladies in my Life!

    I must say that I have really missed the Blogosphere! But I am back in Full Force from today :)
