Modern Romance Styled Shoot by Wilma Towell Photography
Modern Romance Styled Shoot
Exquisite luxury, incredible collaborators, beautiful people and a gorgeous beachside villa. All the essential elements required for a glamorous, luxury Modern Romance Styled shoot for the launch of the 2019 Jeanelle L’Amour Bridal collection.
Think luxury florals, combined with foraged coastal wild grasses; elements of dried bracken texture juxtaposed against soft washes of living coral; and glass and a focal feature of mixed metal hurricanes, a large woven carpet and giant palm and tropical banana leaves offsetting the clean and light interiors of The Beach House. Essentially Durban elements, inspiring the look and feel of this luxurious shoot.
The Jeannelle l’Amour Bridal brand packs a punch and instantly speaks to the individual as well as the ascetic. They are a competitive, dynamic and diverse bridal fashion brand for those looking to stand out from the traditional Chantilly-clang masses.
No matter what your personal style, Jeannelle l’Amour bridal is driving the bridal conversation, offering innovative twists on the traditional staples they’ve grown accustomed to.
Each look speaks to a different bride and celebration, from a cosmopolitan’s loft party in Cape Town’s city center to a low-key vow exchange on the beaches of Zimbali, to an elopement on the Amalfi coast in lands far away. Whether you are the polished bohemian, the sexy and sultry or on the side of something more refined. Each gown is designed with unexpected fabrics, never-before-seen laces, textures, colour shades and delivers a fresh point of view to the bridal mix.
All bout photography
As a photographer Wilma‘s goal is to deliver beautiful natural images that tell the story of your wedding day, capturing the essence of who you are as a couple. Not only capturing the pretty details and the love between the two of you but also freezing special moments with your friends and family that might otherwise have been missed or forgotten.
Wilma has a very natural approach to photography and thinks the best photo’s usually come from those”in-between” raw and real moments and emotions.
Having started out making general accessories Magpie Calls chose to focus primarily on Bridal and Special Occasion accessories from 2016. It makes her extremely happy to be a part of someone’s love story or special day and help them to complete their “look”. She loves custom work and creating something truly unique and fitting for YOU! Often it is her clients that spark off new designs and her favourite part is getting photos back and seeing how her work fits into your day!
Flower arrangements and decor
The Adore Wedding team is headed up by born romantic and experienced Wedding Planner, Floral Designer and Stylist Carolyn Hall. Adore specializes in working with their clients to curate a visual story and sensory experience that is unique to each couple, and reflects both their lifestyle and love story. Whether it be working the map of the world into the styling of the day for avid travellers; bringing fully grown fever trees into the venue for a Kenyan farm girl getting married far from home; combining both traditional “English Garden” and indigenous South African florals to create a wonderland for a special international couple who chose our beautiful country to celebrate their wedding; suspending a thousand white butterflies throughout a venue in honour of a special Mother who is no longer with you; to creating a wild and growing garden down the aisle of a grand old chapel so that the historical roots of the groom and wild heart of the bride were both reflected during their ceremony.
