I recently had the opportunity to be a model in a styled wedding shoot featured on Southbound Bride.
The wedding inspiration for this shoot was Pink and Ultra Violet and the location was the breathtaking Bakenhof between Wellington and Paarl. We captured pink sunsets and bursts of colours from flowers done by Blooming Wonderful Cape Town and Simone from a Dream Come True Events. Nature played along nicely, the sunset was a perfect pink and purple just as they wanted.
Here’s what Simone from a Dream Come True Events had to say.
The inspiration for this shoot was drawn from the Pantone colour for 2018 (Ultraviolet) and pink sunsets. The idea was to incorporate these colours into all aspects of the shoot. We wanted all contributors to showcase their perspective, their spin, on this theme. We chose Bakenhof Winelands Venue for exactly this reason as the venue has so many viewpoints and little spots to shoot in that we really were spoilt for choice. This really lent to the creativity we wanted to inspire everyone with on the day. Another huge influence was the market we cater for, and that’s couples who aren’t afraid of colour. With spring here, who wouldn’t want a beautiful landscape and wedding decor and attire filled with pastel pinks and bright purples?
Looking at these photos, it really made me want to get married again, the colours of this wedding shoot are just unbelievable, fairytale like. I honestly felt like a princess and the plus of this was, I got to be a bride again without any of the planning, stress or anxiety 🙂
