We were incredibly excited when we heard that we would be able to show off one of our favourite wedding venues in Johannesburg
– The Living Room. The Living Room is situated in Maboneng Precinct and achieves a perfect harmony between an urban and eco styled wedding venue. We like to call it an urban oasis, as lush greenery fills the spaces where guests are able to enjoy champagne, looking out on the city’s skyline and panoramic views of Johannesburg. Keywords that guided our shoot includes jungle, metropolitan, eco and urban
wedding. Thank you to our amazing list of vendors and our stunning model Janine Habig
who were able to bring our vision to life so easily and perfectly!
Eco Urban Wedding Inspiration at The Living Room | Styled Shoot
Inspiration and theme
The Living Room boasts magnificent flora, a tropic jungle is created as plant life hugs the walls of the venue. This wedding venue is a complete oasis which is accompanied by an amazing event team and caterers who will ensure that your guests will be sipping on cocktails throughout the evening. Our team wanted the shoot to truly depict the essence of this unique and inspiring venue without straying from its look and feel. Thus, the decor which has been used in the shoot all contributes to this naturalistic, chic atmosphere. The golden, copper, wooden and brass elements act like the sunbeams on a hot day in paradise. We love the quirky elements which have been incorporated – such as the golden chicken or the wooden hand couches, they reflect Joburg’s trendy culture and fashion. Even the dress
of the model reflects nature, the soft feathery top half of the dress combined with the long flowy train is a soft, natural look which can be achieved by any Joburg bride! This little tropical paradise is nestled amongst the impressive Joburg city skyline, guests are able to enjoy the twinkling lights of the city as they dance the night away. We really wanted to bring these two major elements together in the shoot – urban meets eco. Thus, the shoot has a modern and contemporary look and feel while still blossoming with floral elements throughout. We thank you to our amazing Joburg vendors who were able to make our vision come to life!
