Inspired by traditional english charm of quaint and quintessential cottages, wrought iron gates, rose gardens and the kind of life where taking long walks in lavender fields, post-tea, and having the time to stop and smell the roses becomes your everyday.
This theme was perfectly set in our very own slice of heaven, with one better than a traditional British village- the encapsulating mountains of majestic Paarl all around adding a little extra drama to this country-inspired feel.
Adele Kloppers was our fantastically talented photographer, perfectly suiting our theme and interpreting our collective vision for this mood. The genuine passion for her work shines through and added to the overall positivity of the day. Our stunning bridal model, Anine Roos, is the epitome of the romantic beauty and wholesomeness she shines through the lens The ultimate portrayal of grace; we loved working with this natural beauty. And we have Enzoani to thank for their beautiful dresses! With the theme being roses, and us not being in short supply, with them sprouting up all over the fertile grounds of La Paris wedding venue and estate- we were further spoilt with a cascading bouquet thanks to the talented team of Sorrento Events.
Enzoani came to the table with their beautiful designs, Jadis which is straight out of a Jane Austin novel. This stunning full-length, beaded and re-embroided lace, tulle gown embraces romance and a timeless elegance we hope to create in all our styled shoots.
But hold up, Allison is also a show-stopper! She is ultimate fairytale bride's dream. She's full length, whimsical and playful. Her 'WOW' factor has to be the strikingly voluminous soft ruffled organza skirt. She makes her bride look stunning and adds just the right amount of magical flair.
La Paris had us in awe of their space and versatility of venue. From the famous lavender avenue to the banquet hall, rose garden and manor house accommodation- this stately property has it all with an unsurpassable natural background that is guaranteed to WOW. It's no wonder it's so popular with our beautiful brides-to-be!
Hair and makeup was beautifully put together by the amazingly talented 'Evelyn Francis hair and makeup’ - she styled two looks for us and opted to further emphasis the romantic theme with light pink, golden and bronze hues. We love the side plait up-style and the naturally feminine and soft mood this talented artist captured.
For our beautiful brides-to-be; we hope you enjoy and find some inspiration in the gallery below. We loved working as an all-girl power team for this styled shoot and feel it covers all the old world charm and style that is so befitting to this inspired wedding setting.
