Floral Wedding Inspiration at Bosjes – Styled Shoot
We decided to start 2018 on a high note – sharing some vibrant, breathtaking content with you guys. The Pink Book Weddings team executed a styled shoot at the magnificent Bosjes, a few leading keywords which guided us through this incredible journey was contemporary, floral and romantic. We tried to stray from the traditional wedding style and create a fairytale that blossoms with richness and radiance. We were inspired by the glorious architectural waves of the Chapel and incorporated this fluidity throughout the shoot. We were lucky enough to get some amazing vendors on board who were able to bring our vision to life – read more about our vendors in the latter half of the blog.

Inspiration and theme
We couldn’t ignore the striking structure of the chapel, which has been inspired by Psalms 36:7:
How priceless is your unfailing love, O God! People take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
The wings of the chapel create a dynamic, magnificent structure which floats peacefully on tranquil waters. Bosjes captures modernity, movement and life – we allowed the venue to guide us through the rest of the shoot. The floral elements clearly mimic the waves of the chapel and the rich berry colours create that bold and romantic look which we wanted to achieve. The floral elements were a massive part of this shoot, and the attention to detail can be seen throughout – in the decor, the bouquets and floral accessories, a big thank you to Epanoiuir Flower Studio and Lols Flowers for this fairytale collaboration. In order to contribute to a dark and romantic look, we went for a black table and golden elements – this creates a sensual, bold look and feel, as appose to a lighthearted look and feel, should we have gone for a white table and silver elements. This is an important styling tip to remember for your wedding, furniture pieces create massive statements, so the type of table you use can make a massive difference. However, darker elements do not necessarily have to take over the look – they can easily be lifted by softer elements, such as our vibrant arrangement of floral pieces.
We thank Cindy Bam for the wedding dress, the endless train fit the theme perfectly, and the simplicity of the dress allowed a perfect canvas where we were able to add striking floral elements. Durig the shoot, the Cape was experiencing one of its famous windy days, this allowed the dress to dance happily in the sky. Alicia Buckle completed the look with soft, warm and rosy makeup pallets with glittered gorgeously in the sunshine. Finally, thank you for Brightmoon Photo & Videography and Koringkriek Photography for capturing all the perfect moments to easily and naturally. Our greatest expectations were exceeded!
