We are simply delighted to share the latest styled shoot on SA Weddings. Held at the picturesque South Hill Vineyards, this Overberg venue boasts the most incredible landscapes and a wedding dream team that is second to none. Inspired by cool winter tones and rich decadent mauve and purple pops, this wedding look book is perfect for the in between seasons bride.
Needing no introduction, South Hill Vineyards is truly wedding paradise. Located in the magical Elgin Valley, this perfect country chic wedding venue has it all (including incredible wines). With the most beautiful landscapes as your ceremony and reception backdrop, this wedding venue in the Overberg is just a mere hour’s drive from Cape Town. Surrounded by views of the Kogelberg Biosphere, neighbouring apple & pear orchards and the farm’s own verdant vineyards, olive grove and indigenous gardens, there is no shortage of beautiful areas to celebrate your I do’s. We shot the most incredible outdoor ceremony area in the farm's one of a kind maze overlooking the vineyards and majestic mountain range. The reception look was shot in the intimate restaurant gallery space where our decor dream team created an ethereal and sophisticated tablescape, which simply had us weak at the knees. The pièce de résistance was shot in the venues latest addition, the South Hill Cellar. Surrounded by wine barrels and lush landscapes our final bridal shots were photographed in here in all their glory. From start to finish, the team at South Hill were nothing short of incredible! For your one of a kind wedding celebration, make sure South Hill Vineyards is the only name on your lips.
Nadia from 4 Every Event pulled out all the stops to create the most incredible tablescape and ceremony looks. All three looks comprised of statement pieces and delicate details that truly left a lasting impression. Our 2020 brides, be sure to use these wow wedding looks as the perfect inspiration for your big day. Focusing on dry and foraged foliage, this budget-beater wedding style is all the rage and with plenty of reasons why.
Outdoor Ceremony Area
We simply cannot get enough of this lush ceremony look. A gold ceremony hoop adored with dried and fresh foliage was the order for the day. Filled with textures and tones, this perfect ceremony backdrop blended in seamlessly to the lush landscapes in the background. Accented with a beautiful Persian carpet and wooden stumps, this wedding ceremony look is perfect for an outdoor wedding ceremony.
The dreamy reception look is simply bridal perfection. This classic and chic day look consisted of a beautiful blush runner and the most swoon worthy florals. A classic mixture of dried and fresh florals in varied vases were accented with antique gold candle stems and ornate votives, which added the perfect ambient hue and elegant touch. Combining modern details such as black flatware, chic golden cutlery and soft white napkins, this dreamy reception look is the perfect wedding table inspiration for your upcoming nuptials! Don’t you just love it?
Shot in the South Hill Vineyards Cellar, this stylish indoor reception look is all the rage for the upcoming season. Think lots and lots of candles and naked bulbs against a picture perfect raw wooden backdrop. The dreamy golden hues were accented with a statement floral installation that added the perfect luxurious element to this ceremony area. Bold pops of colour blended harmoniously with the textured florals - needless to say it was a match made in heaven.
Of course, no reception look is ever complete without decadent wedding stationery. If you’re a true paper lover like we are, you’ll know that beautiful wedding stationery truly adds the perfect finishing touch. Liesl from Artica Designs created the most luxurious stationery suite for this styled shoot. Berry, mauve and blush pink pieces were beautifully accented with a stylish black floral motif and finished off with a beautiful golden wax seal. We simply cannot get enough of the modern layouts and chic combination of tones and textures. Ladies and gentleman, never be afraid to be bold in your designs. Adding tones and texture that compliment one another always make for a perfect suite and leaves a lasting memorable impression on the receiver. We love the delicate details seen in the bespoke monogram design and place cards! How pretty?
At SA Weddings HQ, we never say no to beautiful wedding cakes. Whether they are extremely detailed or stylish simplistic, we love them all. Nakita the beauty and brains behind Mon Ami Cake pulled out all the stops on this decadent masterpiece. The tones and textures on this petit wedding cake is perfect inspiration for the upcoming season. We especially love the textured metallic detailing at the base of the cake and fresh trailing blooms on top! In its simplicity, this bold wedding cake design spoke volumes.
For this shoot, we focused on three luxurious bridal looks! Yes, you read correctly - three completely different and oh so pretty wedding dress styles just for you! We worked alongside the incredible Calegra Bridal House and boy oh boy did they deliver.
The first bridal look consisted of the Amber Plain Dress from Anna Georgina and the most exquisite Pearl Cape from Lou + Co. We simply love this bridal look and would love more brides to try it out for the season. The nude pearl cape from Lou + Co featured the daintiest collar and delicate sleeves, which added the perfect chic addition to this simplistic and chic bridal gown. We don’t know about you, but this swoon-worthy bridal accessory receives a solid 10/10 in our books - don’t you agree?
The second bridal look focused on a statement ball gown from Anna Georgina. This bridal masterpiece is truly wedding gown goals. The delicate details in the fabric, fitted bustier and dainty bow completed this princess bridal look with absolute ease. Big ball gowns are all the rage for the season, and just looking at this wedding gown you can see why. We simply adore how this already beautiful gown went up a notch with a chic cathedral veil with lace detailing from Calegra Bridal House. Sensual and cosmopolitan, Anna Georgina wedding gowns are designed for the self-possessed, confident woman. How beautiful does our gorgeous bride, Zoë look? Classic and chic never looked better.
The final bridal look is a firm favourite for wedding celebrations taking place in the warmer months. The playful Poppy Top & Matching Skirt from Lou + Co is simply magnificent. The sheer details on the top and dainty florals are simply dreamy. We especially love the key hole back that leads your eye down to the trail of buttons all down the skirt. Lou + Co aims to make every bride feel and look absolutely exquisite on the biggest day of their life. Their wide variety of bridal gowns and accessories has something to suit every one!

Of course, no bridal look is ever complete without bridal hair and makeup. Taryn from Anchor & Rose brought the heat to this shoot with her trend-setting wedding hair and make up looks. Out with the old and in with the new as we start the summer wedding season. This 2020 wedding season calls for less structured and stiff hair do’s and plays into the softer romantic side of things. All three bridal hair looks focused on hair that looked effortless and easy. Taryn ensured the brides hair was still soft and had movement, which is definitely a bridal look we are loving for the season. Embracing texture and volume, these dreamy bridal looks are simply perfection. Needless to say, the wedding make up look created by Anchor & Rose is simply bridal goals. The season calls for colour and the perfect introduction of peach tones is a firm favourite in our books. How beautiful are Zoë’s blue eyes against this dreamy eye make up. Up the look with shimmer tones and effortless brows to create definition and drama - it is your wedding day after all.
What would a styled shoot be without its beautifully captured images? We had the honour of working with Trudy Joubert Photography on this gorgeous wedding styled shoot. Trudy, truly is a master of her craft and judging by the exceptional images, you can see why! No stranger to technology, Trudy upped the anti and even brought out her drone. The dreamy aerial shots are simply incredible and without Trudy's amazing direction and skill, this gorgeous shoot would not have turned out as well as it did. With her signature fine art style and documentary style approach, Trudy captured the day effortlessly in all its glory! Trudy, thank you so much for your incredible vision and style. We just love working with you.
