Today, it is such an immense pleasure to showcase the work of fellow editor Leozette Roode of SA Weddings! For this styled shoot, she conceptualized an intimate, vintage-inspired, Nautical celebration. The result is a dazzling vision which weaves a lovely contrast between natural, organic beach-chic elements and a sleek, sophisticated setting. All of the exquisite details were perfectly captured by Heathyr Huss Photography.

When the editor of SA Weddings first entered the Lagoon Beach Hotel’s Chill Room for a meeting with wedding coordinator, Lauren Atkinson, she was completely smitten with the maritime interior and immediately felt a styled shoot brewing in her thoughts. The geographical walls, striped ottomans and robe-filled coffee tables made for the perfect setting to conduct our vintage-nautical styled shoot with a romantic ambience of sunshine, sand and sailing. The chosen colour palette consisted of white, navy, sand and coral and the decor included natural elements of sea shells, dried coral, wood, sand, and marine rope. The blushing bride dressed the part in a flowing Elizabeth Stockenström dress with soft mermaid-curls and natural, fresh makeup. The theme was beautifully carried through to every element of the styled shoot, including a delectable dessert table filled with abundant blue shades of deliciousness.
