Here are some photos from our Horns and Orchids styled shoot that we did last year – the most amazing service providers brought something fragile and powerful into existence… a dreamlike mix of textures, natural and man made. Enjoy!

…Or watch honey-bees busy around the hive of a summer forenoon,Or animals feeding in the fields,Or birds, or the wonderfulness of insects in the air,Or the wonderfulness of the sundown, Or of stars shining so quiet and bright, Or the exquisite delicate thin curve of the new moon in spring; These with the rest, one and all, are to me miracles, The whole referring, yet each distinct and in its place. To me every hour of the light and dark is a miracle…

One last sneak peek from our African Moon inspired shoot with Fleur le Cordeur and Agape Weddings… How beautiful is our model Alana in this dress from Stefania Morland??

So it was a very exciting start to the week for our little team who put this wintery styled shoot together! The photos were featured on the Strictly Weddings blog, an American wedding website with a huge following internationally and on Facebook alone the pics have had a dizzying amount of interaction – up to 14,000 likes and counting!! You could imagine that blogs like these may become guarded and jaded, and even a bit prickly to deal with, but I just wanted to say that they could not have been more delightful throughout all the emails and toing and froing. For me that says a lot!

So back to the team that made these creative visions a reality – Heike, my gorgeous friend and co-dreamer-upper of flowery photo fests, from Fleur le Cordeur, left us all with our jaws on the floor, as per usual!! Sparkling colours, layered tactile textures, brave and dramatic collations of perfect blooms – it’s all in day’s work for her ;-) Talented Valery, the creative and organised force behind Agape Wedding and Event Design brought all the elements together, from dresses and decor, to running the behind the scenes action and lunch for the starving team ;-) Kate from Something Different created the most stunning lighting pieces and installations to underpin the sets. The ever-lovely Yolande du Toit managed to turn our exquisite model Silke Viljoen into an even more show stopping beauty! The details and dresses on this shoot were truly amazing and were lucky enough to have a gorgeous cake creation from Roxanne Floquet, stationery from the talented team at Secret Diary Designs, dresses from Stefania Morland and Jacques la Grange Couture and the stunning venue of Ashanti in Paarl.

So now it’s just left to show you my favourite images from the day…
