earthy and sophisticated desert wedding

From Lightburst Photography “We recently had the opportunity to shoot a fantastic wedding editorial in an area near Johannesburg, South Africa that is serene with beautifully colored rocks and sand.

Cecile of Dearlove Event Floristry & Decor supplied the décor and flowers for this shoot and she brought some Marsala tones into it via Dendrobiums and grapes and made use of a collection of eclectic pieces. We admired the way she showed that you can go earthy without throwing sophistication out of the window!”

From Lightburst Photography – “Our beautiful model Zoe was dressed by the incredible team from White Lilly Bridal. The dress is made in pure silk with Italian tulle, gold and cream lace delicately hand-stitched with glass beads and pearls. The gold-plated Laurel tiara with handmade gold leaves was done by Lorean Jewelry and is also available at Lilly White Bridal. The makeup was done by Monique and the hair by Melissa, two very talented artists we often work with. We loved the way Zoe’s bold lip color popped and her hair blew in the wind.

Rebelove provided incredible stationery, using trendy calligraphy fonts and keeping with the color scheme – it was the perfect accompaniment for the shoot!”
