Marianne and Thomas #CMBRIDE

One of our lovely brides Marianne married Thomas in South Africa, we absolutely love the photos and we couldn't wait to share them with you! Find out more information about her day below.. 

Details of the day:

We had our wedding at MolenVliet in Stellenbosch in South Africa in March, where my husband Thomas is originally from. We fell in love with the venue just from photos on the internet! We had an outside ceremony on the wine estate with 80 of our friends and family some of whom had travelled from as far away as USA and New Zealand. After the ceremony we walked down through the vineyards to the reception.

About the Shoes!

What Style: Betty

What made you choose that particular style?- I loved the design of the Charlotte Mill's shoes- especially the silver sixpence and message on the bottom of the shoes! I picked this style as I loved the beautiful design but they were also a comfortable height heel.

How would you wear your CM shoes again?- I would wear them with a dress for a summer event. 


Advice for any bride-to-be’s?- Enjoy the planning process and try not to get too stressed out with the little details. If you're having a destination wedding then think strongly about having a wedding coordinator- we only had 1 trip out to South Africa before our wedding and arrived the week of the wedding, so a wedding coordinator was vital for organising everything from London! On the day just relax and enjoy everything- the day will go by really quickly!
