We all know finding parking in the CBD is a nightmare but once I stepped through the doors of The Grand Daddy Hotel, all those worries floated away. The grandeur of this Boutique Hotel was awe-inspiring, it could not have been a better spot for the Launch of Janita Toerien's Couture and Leilah James line.

We loved spending time with the stunning brides whilst savouring Sweet Lion Heart's delicious mirco cakes and sipping on gin cocktails, the cherry on the top was getting a first hand glance at Janita's inspired bridal looks for 2017!


We won't lie but we were swept of our feet with this signature black wedding dress! This dark treasure is our most favourite look by far. The low V beaded neckline is the ultimate showstopper. Fiona Clair Photography captured this unique dress perfectly.


The Leilah James collection really out-did themselves with Valentina, she is proof that beauty can come in all colours, shapes and sizes. Claire Thomson Photography shows us that you don't have to be an 'English Rose' to pull this stunner off!


Arielle takes us back to our youth, singing along to the hit Disney film. Perfect for the bride who dreams of a beach wedding and what's not to love with the beautiful blue pearl fabric, its the ultimate look for the dreamy, romantic wedding. Yolandé Marx truly captured the essence of Arielle.


Last but certainly not least, is- Cara. The couture line brought us a bridal look that blew our mind. Cara is clean, modern and we have no doubt she'll be exceptionally popular for our 2017/2018 brides-to-be as she caters for a twist in tradition. We'll remember this bridal look for many years to come, thanks Wesley Vorster Photography for showcasing Cara so beautifully.

We were left in complete awe by the stunning intricate lace designs of Janita's latest work. Our words seem to escape us when we think back to this event and these timeless pieces - so what better way to share the brilliance with you than through the 'Looks We Love' most!
