Michelle & Patrick’s beautiful Haycroft wedding was such a treat! They chose to do their wedding decor themselves, and the result was truly beautiful!

Michelle put so much thought into every detail of her special day – even to the extent of growing her own succulents just for the wedding arrangements! These made flower arranging so much more fun, and we took a lot of extra special care when arranging with ‘her babies’.

We loved doing the flowers for this wedding and we loved working with a bride who was just so excited to get married.

We really loved helping Philipa & Olie make their dream day come true. Both have been living in Dubai for quite some time and wished to return home to tie the knot with their family and friends both from SA and abroad. To celebrate Philipa’s roots she chose a Afro-chic theme for her wedding day – mixing the beautiful country of the midlands with good old South African Tradition. Our favourite part of this wedding were the potpie pots with proteas and gold grass and the slender white giraffes!

We just loved helping Alet & Arthur with their gorgeous wedding day. A genuine, down-to-earth and Oh! So in love couple.

Tammy & Shaun were married at the stunning iNsisngizi lodge situated in Mid Illovo in March this year.

Beginning with an adventurous drive to the venue, winding through and around what seems to feel like a “forever drive”, (which really isn’t that far at all!)
& suddenly… out pops the lodge, from behind the rolling hills, and we had arrived…

The reception area, sports a very African vibe, with Thatched roofing & lots of natural wood all around it. The decor & flowers were a hit, and worked beautifully with the already lovely venue, giving it the natural, simply stunning finish that the couple were looking for.

The lovely bride, so relaxed, & such a pleasure to work with, just loved her bouquet & really looked so stunning on the day! Very lucky groom!

Tammy & Shaun exchanged vows on the built up deck over looking the lake, and with Protea’s being the main floral for chapel – worked perfectly!

Simple, Elegant, Clean & Crisp… Lisa & Brent got all these things plus more, When they tied the knot earlier this year at the Gorgeous KZN Midlands Wedding venue, The Old Halliwell Country Inn.

Lisa looked absolutely stunning on the day, complimenting her White Tulip Bouquet wonderfully.

We assisted in making up, setting up & styling the Flowers & Decor, Bouquets & Buttonholes. We just loved the finished look that the Bride’s “DIY” gave the decor , with the Blue Aqua elements.

Congratulations again to this gorgeous couple!
