A Floral Rhapsody

Beaumont Wines | Ryan Graham Photography

The only thing more scary than doing a very good friend’s floral and decor for her wedding – is if she happen to be a top notch wedding planner for Wedding Concepts!!!! Oh, and the added pressure that she “chose her date around the availability of Peonies” – which is exactly 2(ish) weeks in October and Peony season can at any time be early or late depending on the weather!! :)

Aaaah Kate you beautiful beautiful bride and person (made even more beautiful – if that is possible – by Yolande du Toit). It was the biggest pleasure being part of your journey, from the very first second you told me you wanted us to be involved, till the last moment of adding final touches before rushing to be a guest at your wedding. You are an amazing woman, you were an amazing bride and you are going to be the most amazing wife and mother. I am so excited to be part of your and Julian’s future which started on this glorious day on Beaumont Farm.

I knew we were going to be a match made in heaven when I got this email from Kate:

“Quick question do you know of the brand Anthropology? It is my favourite style, clothing, homeware brand that I visit and literally spend ALL my money at when we visit the States. It was my first port of call when it came to inspiration for my wedding – so would be interesting to see how we could bring that in? Let me know what you think….”

I could cry from happiness…as it was one of my favourite inspiration at that stage too.

I could go on and on…but I think Ryan’s pictures says enough. Enjoy these images, filled within the riches colours and textures, only suited for a bride and groom who lives life large. Love you guys!

    Heike my friend – I’ve seen so many weddings come to life on the day and I never imagined that I would literally burst into tears when I saw our wedding reception! Walking into that tent pure emotion took over and I was so overwhelmed to see how our vision had come to life! As Jules said on the day, it looked better than what I had envisioned and words can’t come close to express how grateful we still are for your amazing contribution to a day that we will remember forever! Big hug and kiss my friend and thank you again!
