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.

From Molly McKinley Designs:  Our inspiration for this blush and ivory coastal wedding inspiration came from the textures of the ocean and rocky coast. Instead of color, we really played with dimension and textures in the linens, different greeneries, and driftwood accents throughout the table scape. The feel of this wedding day would be warm and relaxed. We imagine guests would come (without shoes) to begin the celebration in the early evening. After dinner and dancing, this couple’s seaside celebration would end with a bonfire on the beach.

From ShoeBox Photography: Desiree and Court’s wedding at the Jellyfish restaurant was romantic and flawless. Packed with emotion and breathtaking at every turn. When it comes to Desiree and Court’s love, they have it… BIG. So supportive of each other in every way and absolutely head over heels for each other. As Desi walked up to meet Court on the Jellyfish patio for their first look, a wave of sweet excitement and a tap on the shoulder to finally let the day begin between the two of them had us all swooning at just how amazing their day would be. One of the sweetest parts of it all? The lock and key ceremony. They had two heart shaped locks, having entwined and locked them together forever, throwing the keys deep into the ocean, never to be found again. Sigh…. such LOVE.
