Vintage Wedding Inspiration at Lichtenstein Castle
Who doesn’t dream of getting married in a castle? Pink Book teamed up with some of the most amazing wedding vendors to create a breathtaking, dramatic vintage wedding theme shoot. We drew our inspiration from the stunning and mysterious Lichtenstein Castle in Cape Town. The Pink Book team along with Tracy Ann Branford from Trunk Events, who coordinated this vintage wedding theme styled shoot, created something that is truly unique and special. Definitely one of the most memorable styled shoot’s we have ever been a part of.
Dramatic Vintage Decor, Flowers & Stationery
We decided to lean toward a more substantial, royal and dramatic look rather than the traditional vintage theme that has been done so many times before. This dramatic vintage look was perfectly portrayed by Tracy from Tunk Events and Angie and her amazing team from My Pretty Vintage. They used moody colours to elevate the overall feel of this look, while still keeping the vintage theme. An opulent, royal touch was added by using subtle gold elements throughout. Janet from Kaalvoet Designs created the unique stationery designs which tied in perfectly with the medieval feel of the venue as well as the vintage wedding decorations. Everything tied in perfectly with the already dramatic atmosphere of the Castle.
The Vintage Wedding Dresses, Hair & Makeup
Marle, our flawless model wore a beautiful lace dress created by Marietjie from La Belle Mariee and a stunning wedding dress featuring a cape designed by Tashreeqah Sadien. Each one of these vintage-style wedding dresses had their own unique details and character which suited the theme stunningly. Marle’s Hair and Makeup were perfected by Estelle Pretorius Makeup and Hair Artist who did two different looks – a more natural, understated makeup look and a dramatic makeup look for the bold and daring bride.
This gorgeous shoot was perfectly captured by our amazing teams of photographers and videographers. Photos were shot and edited by Shanleigh & Simon Heale from Thunder and Love Photography. Vera & Desmond Denton from Imagenheart Videography captured all of the video footage for this shoot. Check out the highlights video below and stay tuned for a Behind the Scenes look.
