Modern Industrial Inspired Wedding By Pronkertjie
MODERN INDUSTRIAL INSPIRED WEDDING
Get some amazing inspiration from Christiaan & Carla’s Modern Industrial Inspired Wedding By Pronkertjie that took place on 20 November 2021. Lizelle from Pronkertjie Flower & Décor Styling & Carla the bride wrote a few words about this breathtaking wedding.
“It’s not often that you get to work at one of the most beautiful industrial venues in Pretoria, but when you do get to work there, and your couple is as awesome as this…your excitement level goes through the roof! I’m so happy to be able to share with you the wedding of Christiaan and Carla at Ever Be Lodge.” Lizelle, Pronkertjie
A Brides Trust
“When a bride comes to me and says:” I trust you completely”, my heart starts to beat a little faster and I know that this is my ideal client. Getting to know your bride and being part of her journey to becoming someone’s wife, is the best thing about working in this industry. It’s not about getting paid or being seen, but about sharing my passion with a client who loves what I do and chose to work with me above everyone else. What more could I ask for.” Lizelle, Pronkertjie
The bridesmaids’ dresses were custom made by Mrs. Rose with floral print that complemented her colour scheme. They used those same colours throughout the wedding to tie it all together, right down to the groom’s dark green suit.
The Wedding Bouquet
Bride Carla: “It was such an amazing experience to work with Pronkertjie. They went above and beyond. It was so pleasant to work with them as they completely captured my vision. The decor was simplistic yet striking and the flower arrangements were everything I wished for and more. My ultimate favourite was my beautiful bouquet as it had peonies and orchids. Looking back, it all happened the way it was supposed to, I wouldn’t change a thing”.
Special Moment Between Bride & Groom
Bride Carla:” The best part of my wedding day was seeing my soon-to-be husband cry when I walked down the aisle”.
At the pre-reception guests got to enjoy a live entertainment by Titus Music, some unexpected thunder showers and a harvest table prepared by the venue with the most incredible selection of artisanal breads and cheeses. Melinda’s Kitchen made sure guests had something sweet in their hand with a beautiful two-tiered blush wedding cake, with gorgeous bright florals and textured buttercream finishes.
The Wedding Photographer
Lizelle from Pronkertjie: “I was so excited to hear that Carla and Christiaan chose Maresha-Lee for their photos, her photography style is timeless and has a more editorial look which was a perfect fit
for this wedding. Having a photographer whose style is in line with not only that of the venue, but also the style of the wedding – its pure gold!”
Wedding Flowers & Decor
Carla wanted her flowers and décor to compliment Ever Be, keeping with the modern industrial style, yet very classic and elegant. “We used a light tulle table runner with décor items in glass, metal, and cement candleholders to enhance the industrial style of their wedding.” Lizlle, Pronkertjie
Carla wanted her flowers to be colourful, mostly dark with hints of softer coloured flowers to add romance. Pairing dark greenery with shades of pink, mauve and copper-coloured roses we were able to add contrast and create interest. We used a selection of orchids, tulips, arums and anthuriums to emphasize the modern minimalist style which Pronkertjie is known for.
Enjoy The Journey
Carla: “As a newlywed bride I know it can be such a stressful time, but don’t ever forget to enjoy the journey. Make sure you set up a budget, its not always possible to stick with it. But it is a good indication of what you would like to spend where. It is also important to make your significant other part of the journey. My husband really enjoyed planning with me, and it really made the experience more pleasant”.
