Desert Engagement Shoot ~ Jerry & Tina

LITD ~ JVR Photography_0014

I do so love a loved up couple and this loved up couple will be saying ‘I do’ tomorrow. Jerry and Tina will celebrate their wedding on Halloween at The Montgomerie…..best of luck guys!

Liz at JVR Photography captured these two in the desert in her usual beautiful way,

I was really looking forward to photograph these two. Tina on the other had was not to eager.. (she is a self confessed posing dummy/camera shy) well, I beg to differ!

Tina looked absolutely stunning in her pink dress (it really made the images POP) and Jerry is clearly smitten with his soon to be wife ;-)

Rivini Fall 2015

LITD ~ Rivini_0003

The Fall collection from Rivini showcased sleek, modern column dresses with cutouts alongside romantic  lace mermaid gowns and textured tulle creations. ‘For Fall 2015, I took all of my favorite go-to items — a sweatshirt, an oversize tunic, a sexy bustier and a simple T-shirt –and created some nontraditional interpretations. I also explored options of scale, from minimal to grand, using a vocabulary of translucent fabrics that float and play with light, quietly seducing the eye,’ says designer Rita Vinieris of the most recent collection.

Beautifully Organic ~ Naila & Mike

LITD ~ A Fistfull of Bolts_0012

This may be my absolute favourite wedding feature ev-er. Dubai couple Naila and Mike got married in Portugal and there is not one image in this feature that I do not love ~ Sean from A Fistfull of Bolts is one talented photographer. There is so much attention to detail but most of all there is just the most relaxed vibe and a ton of love. It will come as no surprise that the bride Naila is a wedding planner from Cherry On Top Events and I’ll pass you over to her…. 

Because I am an events designer and wedding planner by profession I knew right away that I didn’t want a typical wedding and neither did my husband (he was happy to elope :) ) Having planned over 50 wedding we have dealt with many brides who have really lost sight of what a wedding is about it was really important for me and Mike not to do the same. This is why we wanted to strip our wedding of all the “cliché” aspects and gimmicks and let it be what it truly is about. We wanted it to be simple, natural and humble and reflect who we are as people. There was nothing the guests had to do, no formalities, no dos and don’ts, just have fun. As for the design of the wedding, I was inspired by the venue. I chose Areias do Seixo because of how beautiful it was and its unique surroundings. I also loved the philosophy behind the hotel and the amazing people that owned and ran it. Being in Areias was like being home and so that is what our theme became – “Home”.

We didn’t want anything at the wedding to seemed forced. We wanted a very organic and spontaneous setup. The ceremony took place in the garden where heart shaped cutouts lined the aisle and the altar backdrop was an installation of oversized flowers. Our bridal party consisted of our childhood friends and my nieces. The bridesmaids carried giant fringed balloons and the ring bearer a funny signboard.

Right after the ceremony a gypsy marching band led the guests to the cocktail reception where they served themselves beer and drinks from a standalone bathtub. It was a little chilly so we had a bonfire for guests to warm themselves by.

The dinner took place in the hotel’s greenhouse. It was a floral wonderland. There were a lot of personal touches – for example, I had seen a neon light that kept flashing “ I Heart You” and was smitten. I bought it and it sat blinking on the bridal table as part of the décor. And as we were served a delicious 3 course menu, our dear friends and family gave heart warming speeches.

After that it was a full on party till 4 in the morning :)

Grayed Jade

LITD ~ Grayed Jade_0000

Grayed Jade has got to be one of my absolute favourite shades for a wedding purely because it is so elegant and versatile. This colour transitions winter to spring like no other.

It offers itself as a fairly neutral hue to start your colour palette with, add in some deeper shades of green and gold or soft silver and peach and you have got yourself a colour palette to die for. It offers an ethereal quality that other shades cannot.

If you’re stumped and looking for a place to start with you colour palette then Grayed Jade may just be it…..
