Happy Sunday, friends! Hope your weekend is going as well as mine is. The sun is (finally!) out in London town, and I have been taking advantage. Drinks in Chelsea on Friday, a braai with my housemates yesterday (where I showed them how seriously we South African ladies take our braai extras – potato bake, green salad, couscous salad, etc.) and today I’m off to catch up with one of my besties in North London. Just perfect! And maybe Italy will win tonight and make my father a very happy man. Anyway, I’ve managed to sneak in the usual roundup of web favourites, but first, here’s what you missed on SBB.
You all have been loving the formal/garden style of this week’s black, white & silver inspiration board from Monday. On Tuesday the black and white theme continued with Luisa & Ash’s GORGEOUS Mofam wedding, and there was even more real wedding awesomeness later in the week when we checked out a sweet ballet pink KZN wedding and a protea-filled vintage one. We also showed you how to style your aisle, rock a beach engagement shoot, and get your floral artistry on at a William Clarke Flowers workshop. It’s been a week of loveliness, but just wait until you see what I have in store for you next week! Let’s start with a hint… our real life bride is back! :)
Here’s my web favourites…
- As a huge How I Met Your Mother fan, this picture so appealed to me – love it!
- Synchronised swimmers as entertainment, 1920s style, and a chorus of kazoos to bring the bride down the aisle – this wedding has it all!
- DIY these floaty flags for your beach wedding
- Love the funky handkerchiefs for the groomsmen in this wedding
- The forest setting and styling in this wedding is beyond gorgeous!
- Inspiration for a fun, colourful bridal shower with lots of do-able ideas
- I am so in love with this wild flower bouquet
- DIY chalkboard bunting – this is adorable!
WEDDING OF THE WEEK
Orange and tangerine is such an of-the-moment wedding colour combination, and this wedding has so many incredible details to complement the colour scheme. I absolutely adore not just the parrot tulip bouquets but the ranunculus-filled table arrangements, the vintage plane motifs, the vineyard setting, and the nectarines tied with bakers twine as escort cards, not to mention the ‘nut bar’ that guests had to fill up on and take away. And as with the best weddings, all the details were inspired by their loves and personalities (the colours are their favourites, nuts are their favourite snack, the groom is in the airforce, etc.) Very special.
