With cooler weather, shorter days & and a more ‘indoor’ lifestyle, one might not instantly choose winter for their wedding date. But those who have (and winter brides soon to be!) know that there’s plenty of reasons & ways winter weddings can stand out from the rest.
This talented team of South African wedding vendors agrees! Embracing Cape Town’s moodier wintertime, photographer Lauren Pretorius and florist & planner Epanouir Flower Studio created a winter wedding dream scene, not only inspiring winter brides and grooms but showing couples year round how to romantically light their darker reception spaces.
From candles in varying heights & sizes, tea lights hanging in orbs from tree branches (such a creative idea!) and stylish drapings of fairy lights there is so much need lighting inspiration to use on your wedding day. Showing off this warm golden glow, the team paired their lighting styles with fashion, beauty & florals in shades of cream, taupe, nude & gold.
We’re also excited to share Alena Leena‘s wedding dress designs, one of the up-and-coming designers we spotted and fell for on our trip to Cape Town.
