"This is the one day I wanted to be perfect, and everything else was brought together to make this one moment unique and special" started Kaabia when asked about her wedding, "All my jewellery collection from earrings to hair bands, rings to cuffs, each of them was designed and made specially to tie in the occasion perfectly" by us she adds.
The venue was a extension of her idea for the big day and it was only amplified by the bridal jewellery, hand-crafted details, bridesmaids and groomsman gifts and more. "Each detail was thought through, and no stone was left unturned to make it anything less than perfect" explains Kaabia.
The overall theme screamed 'All Things Ethereal' from the decor to the location to the outfit and of course, the jewellery, they all resonated that exact emotion.
The bride's entry was on a boat that was covered with all kinds of flowers in soft shades of pink, ivory, bubblegum and eggshell dotted with lush green.
"I always felt connected to the ocean and knew I wanted to start my new life on that note "
The millennial bride was sure that she needed to make this destination wedding a true 'Outhouse Experience' that hasn't been seen before. It entailed every detail from customised giveaways to bespoke jewellery, to tailor-made ensembles to colour coded decor, it was a wedding that truly cannot be forgotten.
They were pampered in the lap of luxury with one big surprise, designer Atsu Sekhose. He arrived shortly after the bridal party to acquaint himself with the posey and take measurements, styles and ideas on what each of them will be wearing for the big day. In theme of course, each of them were styled in ensembles that suited their personalities best in hues of bubblegum and ivory, a hint of sparkle and a whole lot of love.
