SA Weddings has the great pleasure of showcasing this incredible and ultra romantic styled shoot by Tuli Events. An industry friend and powerhouse creative, Carol Yebei pulled together a dream team of suppliers to create this Romantic Secret Garden Styled Shoot. A perfect blend of romance and luxury, this shoot is the perfect inspiration for a bride planning a chic Spring/Summer wedding celebration!
The styled shoot took place just after the easing of the Covid-19 related hard lock down and the entire team was excited about getting outdoors to bring the romantic and elegant styled shoot to life. We were fortunate to have perfect natural lighting and comfortable weather conditions on the day.
Outdoor celebrations will continue to be popular in 2021 and we wanted to showcase this.
The shoot was inspired by the lush gardens and historical architecture at the venue, River Meadow Manor, which is located in Irene, a charmingly quaint little village on the outskirts of greater Pretoria. This exclusive boutique venue is perfect for couples looking for an elopement celebration or micro intimate wedding.
A colour palette of sage green, earthy neutrals and a dash of blush adorned the set up and spread throughout the wedding elements like the florals, centrepieces, décor, cake, stationery flatware, crockery and napery. As is necessary in these Covid-19 times, we included a sanitising station that housed fragrant hand sanitisers and sequinned masks surrounded by beautifully decorated flower centrepieces and candles. Safety certainly does not need to be distasteful.
The chic stationery enclosed by gold wax seal blended well with the garden style. Luxe and oh-so-romantic, beautifully designed stationery has an incredible lasting effect on the receiver and this suite receives a standing ovation from the girls at SA Weddings.
We set up an intimate outdoor ceremony in front of a green garden archway with King Louis chairs providing a stunning look. The hidden space inside the four pillar archway evoked a romantic airy feeling for the reception area where a modern romantic tablescape was laid out with beautiful flowers, tableware, stationery and scented candle centrepieces. Premium flowers were used in the design of the low lush floral centrepieces and the garden style bouquet for the bride. How divine?
An incredible stylish addition to any wedding celebration, beautifully designed lounge pockets are the perfect conversation starter for any guest. Let's not even get started on the amazing photo opportunities. An outdoor lounge area was set up under a 102 year old Oak Tree that provided a unique backdrop and a perfect relaxing ambience. The hand painted buttercream cake adorned with fresh flowers exuded simplicity and elegance.
Last but not least, the show stopping wedding gowns. The bride wore a chic crepe mermaid dress for the ceremony and a timeless elegant ball gown for the reception. We loved the ethereal transition of her make up from a subtle look for the ceremony to a bright lipstick for the evening. Nothing like a bold lip colour to signal it is party time! Her hair was done in a simple chic low up-do with stunning jewellery to compliment her dreamy wedding look.
