Jewel Tone Wedding Inspiration

We always anticipate the very moment the SARIE Bruid hits shelves nationwide. This glossy annual magazine is always packed with an array of distinctive, creative and inspirational wedding content and once again this year, the magazine did not fail to impress. What gets us even more excited is our very own inspirational shoot gracing not only the index and beauty pages but an entire story of 6 jam-packed pages of jewel-toned inspiration.

Thanks to our wonderful team of collaborators, this shoot is by far one of favourites. Christine Meintjes was the master brain behind the lens, while the ladies at Flowers in the Foyer were the green fingers taking care of all the floral designs, the gorgeous location and yes that enviable emerald cupboard. Alicia Buckle and Sanmarie made sure our beautiful girls looked the part, while all the stationery and confectionary requirements were looked after by Susan Brand and Nelle Cakes. We couldn’t have pulled off this rich and righteous story without our wonderful team of talents and we hope you find as much joy looking at these images as we did in creating them.

Our inspiration was born from the runways of Valentino, Dolce & Gabana and Christian Dior’s fall/ winter collection and we couldn’t help but wonder how magnificent this trend can actually be incorporated into the wonderful world of winter weddings. Think lace and velvet, warm rich colours, gemstones and the royal opulence of brocade with gold finishing. For a summer look, the warmer fabrics can easily be substituted with lighter textures whilst still keeping bold colours for impact.
