Combining Bohemian Style with the African Bushveld
The venue was ideal for our boho bushveld wedding theme. From the historic buildings and quaint decor elements to the sprawling farmlands and mountains in the background. Everything made you long for the peaceful South African country life. The venue’s off-road safari vehicle added that extra touch to emphasize the wildlife setting. And the ruggedness of the 4×4 contrasted beautifully with the graceful look of our bride and the intricate floral bouquet.
The Wedding Dresses, Jewellery & Makeup
The beautiful dresses were complimented by bespoke jewellery pieces supplied by Black Betty Jewellery Design in Cape Town. They supplied striking pieces featuring large, bulky gemstones placed in glamorous gold. Their jewellery shined through the entire photoshoot and emphasized how important your jewellery choice is for your wedding day. Of course your wedding ring will be the main focus for the day, but don’t forget about earrings and a necklace.
Our model’s makeup and hair was beautifully styled by Cape Town artist, Makeup & Hair by MB. She created a look that was soft and natural overall, with a slight darker share to emphasize the model’s beautiful eyes. This went perfectly with the elegant dress and contrasting dramatic jewellery.
Flowers, decor, and lots of lights
The table was setup up with cascading fairy lights and an amazingly lit centerpiece was the focal point of our outdoor bohemian wedding reception. The flickering flames of dozens of candles added a dreamy atmosphere to the open air setting. The beautiful wedding stationery was designed and supplied by Haley from Poppery Paperie.
An Amazing Photoshoot
When our shoot concluded, the team at Jan Harmsgat spoiled us with an amazing dinner and some more delicious wine. Their restaurant is open to the public which created an incredible atmosphere. The accommodation was impeccable and definitely left a lasting impression on the Pink Book team. Professional at all times with great sense of humour, this styled shoot team pulled together and created breathtaking content for all to enjoy! THANKS so much to all the amazing vendors who made this photoshoot possible.
