Why Budget Bride?
I got married in my twenties, my boyfriend at the time proposed and wanted to get married as soon as possible. Although we lived in Joburg city our whole lives, we wanted nothing more than to get married under the ocean sky with the sand between our toes. We also only had the money that was in our bank accounts. At the time our combined income was below average, we were (and still are) madly in love and couldn't wait to start our new life together.
I still look back at those 3 months we spent planning our wedding with a broad smile on my face. Every step of the way was a celebration, and we were just floored at how many doors God opened for us through this exciting adventure. I loved the hustle, learnt the lessons, was humbled by the breakthroughs and appreciated how much the people we love helped make it a day we will never forget. Our special day was something we couldn't have imagined in our wildest dreams.
Now it’s my turn… I want every bride to be able to live the story of her dream wedding so she can proudly tell it to her kids and grandkids, and relive that joy for the rest of her days.
As a wedding photographer, I’ve had the privilege of capturing so many beautiful moments, knowing that those will be treasured for generations to come. As a DIY bride I understand the balance of trying to save money whilst still creating a Pinterest board wedding.
