My good friend and fellow photographer Lida de Beer and I, had the wonderful privilege to work with Carla Joao from Moi Decor on a styled wedding shoot a couple of weeks ago. Carla coordinated the whole shoot and organized all the vendors who each contributed in a wonderful way to pull this all together. We were lucky enough to get 3 gorgeous dresses from Romantic Trousseau Bridal for the shoot and Eurosuit came to the party by sponsoring two snazzy suits for our “groom”.
We did the shoot at the brand new wedding venue, Vivere, just outside Pretoria. I was totally in love with the beautiful French flair combined with African splendour. It has the most stunning wooden deck overlooking a beautiful lake – this is what photo opportunities are made of!
I think its important to note that our two stunning models are not professional models at all. In fact, they haven’t done any modeling work before. Case in point – the right suppliers makes a fairy tale wedding and can get you to look like you belong on the cover of a fashion magazine!
I give credit to all the vendors involved at the end of this post. Thank you so much to all of you for having fun with us on the day!
