Introducing our new sponsors

I know some of your subscribe to SBB through RSS or email, so you may miss out on the sponsors whose adverts you’ll see on the site. So every month, I’ll introduce you to them – after all, without them, there would be no SouthBound Bride! Show them some love by clicking through to check out their sites.


If you’re planning a pretty vintage celebration, you don’t need to look any further than Cape Town’s My Pretty Vintage for a gorgeous selection of crockery, glassware, linen and other decor items. The name just says it all, really!


Dylan and Emma-Jane of Hello Harbour Photography‘s very own wedding is one of my favourites (check it out here) and Emma-Jane’s a well-known blogger too, so I already knew they had great taste, but boy do they ever bring this to their photography. So much fun! And a very welcome addition to SBB.


Yolande Snyders is just so lovely, and is one of those really dynamic people coming up in the industry. She’s also a founder of the very cool Desert Rose Project (more on this on SBB soon). No surprise then that her pics show that same passion for what she does. Don’t forget to check out her current studio special too!

Here’s how you know I love the photographic talents of Monica Dart longtime – I asked Monica to take the publicity shots of me that you’ll see around the site. Her fine art-style pics have been featured lots here on SBB, and I hope they always will be! Check out some of her work here (including her awesome boudoir work) and don’t forget to visit her brand new website!

Kim du Toit and I have been plotting her SBB debut for quite some time now (watch this space) and trust me, when it happens, you will be ah-mazed. Kim’s pics are so soft and romantic, they get me all swoony. Check them out over on her website.

Another massive welcome to photographer Kathryn van Eck, whose work I’m looking forward to showing you more of really soon. Kathryn’s also based in Cape Town, where I know her clean, fresh style will be much loved by my readers!

And last, but very certainly not least, welcome to Abigail K., photographer and social media guru, whose beautiful work we have already featured in this secret garden wedding. Drop her a mail – she’s super friendly and easy to work with!
