Imagine an african sunset, twilight fireflies combined with bohemian bliss.

We drew our inspiration from Emily Moon's beautiful surroundings and incorporated it into every aspect of this shoot. That, of course, created this glorious feast for the eyes. 

Located next to the winding Bitou river, Emily Moon creates the perfect backdrop for African romance. This inspired the floral design and fusion of beautiful blooms like the indigenous King Protea, peony roses, orchids, carnations, and dried elements to incorporate the natural landscape.

The table decor of terracotta and the blue-grey accents again capture the beautiful surroundings this unique wedding venue presents, set amongst unparalleled natural beauty!

The hair and makeup were created keeping the African-Bohemian fusion in mind- the terracotta-toned feathers provided to us by nature was weaved into soft braids and long locks, while more vibrant earth tones were brought in through the makeup, and then a little twist was added to complete the look! Topping it off, the dress was custom made to perfectly compliment the rich and warm tones, yet adding some drama to match the magnificent and ethereal scenery of this exceptional venue.

“I think we all had a dream of what we wanted to create, and it came together beautifully.”

The photographs speak for themselves, when you combine natural beauty with nature the result is evident. A beautiful place in a dream setting + the efforts of people who are passionate about what they do will always produce pure magic!
