Situated an hour from Johannesburg, in a serene country setting, lies one of the most beautiful hotels we've ever seen. Nestled in a crook of the Magalies River in the lush and fertile valley of Magaliesburg, De Hoek Country Hotel is the perfect place to celebrate life... and of course, to say your I Do's.
When we first laid eyes on this gem, we knew right away that we needed to get some amazing service providers on board to create something real special - a romantic styled shoot.
The incredible Mel Taylor was on board for styling the hair of our beautiful bride and overly cute flower girls, and Makeup by Taryn for waving her magic wand and making our girls look absolutely breathtaking! Thank you to both ladies who were absolutely fantastic to work with and created the most beautiful looks.
With Bride&Co and Eurosuit supplying the dresses and suits, we knew we were in for a real treat with their wide variety of options to choose from. Our models looked absolutely stunning and we definitely couldn't have done it without these two.
If you're planning your wedding, do yourself a favour and visit one of their 11 nationwide stores to book a free fitting. The professional and helpful staff will help and guide you with great advice to finding your wedding day outfit best suited to you.
A special thanks needs to go out to Elli Saayman from The Turquoise Squirrel for creating the most beautiful cake and stationery (check out her work - she's seriously talented); Shiny Rock Polished for supplying the to-die-for jewellery (stay tuned for something special next year); BookAclassic for the Austin Princess Limousine; Café Fleur for the decor and flowers; Liz Bharo Photography for capturing it all so beautifully and Tash Bharo from Asana Films for the great video footage!
We wouldn't have been able to pull off this shoot without the help of these incredible and talented service providers!
