Hi.

Welcome to my website. Here I document my love affair with beautiful florals and exquisite weddings. Hope you enjoy my work!

David & Zandré | Ashanti Estate

This couple stole my heart. Zandré with her beautiful big eyes and even bigger heart and the soft spoken David, truly her Prince Charming. They share such a special kind of love, one you can almost touch, and it's amplified by their shared love of our Creator. They have touched my heart in such a way that I know I am a better person just by knowing them. 

I loved working with my dear friends Clarita Smit (Hair & Make Up) and Michelle Du Toit (photographer) on this special day. We had one common goal - we all wanted this day to be perfect for these two very special people.

We made simple arrangements for the ceremony and used beautiful burgundy preserved hydrangea confetti mixed with ruscus leaves and berries. Beautiful gold lanterns guided Zandré down the aisle and they ended their ceremony with communion - just the two of them. Zandré with her key for detail even made sure this element had gold accented glassware.

Zandré had a bouquet filled with white O'Hara roses, white hydrangeas and white peonies. Pops of red tulips and red berries made this bouquet one of my favourites to date! It suited her dress and her small frame perfectly. We made similar smaller bouquets for her bridesmaids.

The reception tables were dressed with grey linen textured tablecloths, navy serviettes, gold rimmed base plates and they all complemented the gold accents perfectly. To give dimension and depth we opted for white platforms and coloured glass vases. I just love working with those stunning purple ombre vases - they are stunning!

Vintage gold candelabras with straight white candles looked romantic and modern at the same time. We just love the pops of red everywhere!

Thank you David & Zandré for your kindness and for sharing your great love with me. You will always be one of my very special couples and I wish you the very best this life has to offer. May you be blessed, kept and my His light shine on you for the rest of your days.
