A Nice Day For Some White Wedding Inspiration
White is associated with light, goodness, innocence, purity and rebirth. It is considered to be the colour of perfection. 2020 has been a year filled with challenges and the heartache that comes with the postponement of a wedding. The White Wedding styled shoot was the perfect way to celebrate the rebirth of the industry and give couples hope. MK Event Management focused on the white element by playing with white linen, white décor and white flowers. Couples who favour minimalism or enjoy a pure look would love this style.

The Wedding Venue
Abrialii is a chic country style wedding venue. Beautifully, manicured gardens and expansive, highveld scenery is a photographic bliss. Flawless architecture, coupled with lavish fields where horses graze and gallop, take you to another place and time. Natural surroundings make it a serene haven and Abrialii offers guests the opportunity to experience peace and tranquillity in a delightfully unique setting. The venue served as the perfect backdrop for the styled shoot.
The cutlery, crockery and wedding décor
The White Wedding style is quite versatile, allowing you to add elements and substitute others to fit within your budget and your taste. The team used silver moon cutlery to bring in a modern element, whilst glass brought in a fresh element against the white linen. You can replace the glass elements with pewter, gold or rose gold to bring in a splash of colour.
Both white tiffany chairs and clear ghost chairs complement the overall table setup. The white tiffany chairs carry through the all-white look, while the ghost chairs tie in with the glass element.
Wedding Flower Arrangements
You can add height to your table, by using candelabras or cylinders with pillar candles of different heights. Another option is to use different flower arrangements for example, tall white King Proteas or flowing Phalaenopsis Orchids.
It is important to discuss your theme with your wedding coordinator to ensure that the right venue is chosen to bring to life your vision for your Big Day.
The cake is always a highlight of your Big Day. Therefore Lay-Licious continued with the White Wedding style covering the cake in white fondant, adorned with elegant handmade rice paper detail, bringing elements of rebirth, purity and light into the cake.
Wedding Dresses with Hair and Makeup
You can trust The Bridal House‘s personal and professional advice when searching for your wedding gown. Choosing the right wedding gown can be stressful, but with one of their consultants by your side to guide you through the process of finding a gown, they’ll ensure that the dress you choose complements your body, complexion and personal style. You’ll simply look radiant on your wedding day just like the two models, Lebogang and Demi did during this incredible shoot.
Their makeup and hair was done by the very talented Claudia Hepburn who has always been an artsy and creative person. Her whole life is all about making other people feel better about themselves and to motivate them to see the goodness and beauty in and around them. Art is a part of her, it is how she shows the world who she is. Also as a professional freelance makeup artist, she gets to enhance her client’s inner and outer beauty. Not only is she a make-up artist, but she is also an exceptionally versatile visual artist. Another reason why Claudia became a make-up artist, is that it’s something that gives her the best of both worlds – People & Art.
