Understated Elegance – Emoya, Bloemfontein, Free State

swarovski earrings for the bride as her something blue on her wedding day

When Mags approached us to plan her wedding it was like we had known her forever. Our first meeting immediately became a fully-fledged consultation. With her being from Bloemfontein, it was also added excitement as we have always wanted to do a wedding in our hometown. We went all out to make sure that her vision was carried through into the day. Mind you it was not easy, as she said she was “a little bit of glamorous, chic, happy go lucky, funky girl all wrapped up into a ball of love” which I immediately picked up, along with her authentic and fun nature. It is safe to say that you can pick up her exuberant character from these images captured by the talented Rodolfo Custo

Hlubi really loves music. So our concept was designed around bringing different musical items into the elements of the day. The couple loved the follow through of the theme from the napkin detail, the music note shaped biscuits at the dessert buffet and table names of different musical genres. The ceremony took place in a hall that was transformed from an empty shell into a magical paper flower heaven. Guests were treated to canapes on the verandah while giraffe and eland sauntered to the drinking hole. This was the opposite of how this wedding ended, with everyone young and old on the dance floor until wee hours of the morning.

Mags and Hlubi thank you for choosing us to walk this journey to the altar with you and may God bless your union
