There are bush weddings, and then there is this pretty as a picture game lodge celebration in shades of blush and candy pink, captured to perfection by Charl van der Merwe. Picture a classic affair, overflowing with lush blooms, with touches of gold, its glam elegance contrasting with the rustic scenery. Then imagine a beautiful bride in a breathtaking illusion lace gown, flower girls in froths of rouge, groomsmen in stylish navy, and a handsome groom whose eyes light up at the sight of his wife-to-be. It’s the dream, isn’t it? Well, with Leona and Christopher’s big day, it’s a reality. And while we don’t have their story to share with you today, these romantic images really do speak for themselves.
WAIT until you see the beautiful bouquets I have to share with you today. At the risk of sounding like a total kugel, you are going to daaah. Now, you may associate cascade (or waterfall or trailing, whatever you want to call them) bouquets with the ’80s and early ’90s, Princess Diana style. But in fact, they are this year’s hottest flower trend. And if you had any doubts before, the pics in this post will convince you that the new wave of these bouquets are absolutely, beyond, incredible, gorgeous. And so romantic! Most cascade bouquets use a variety of flowers from large to smaller and hanging foliage, creating that pretty trail at the bottom. You can stick with a single type of bloom, but my favourites are those that use a variety, the next step from the loose handtied look that has been so popular and so inspiring this last while. Pinning fingers at the ready! You’re definitely going to want to keep some of these on file ;)Read More
