We’ve got a special treat for you today, darling readers. We’ve teamed up with Freixenet to bring you this remarkably stylish styled wedding from Sarah McKay Photography and Belovely Floral + Event Design, who put their incredibly creative minds together to bring us a weddingscape full of garlands, ivory lace, fuchsia and peach blooms, and of course, a mimosa bar for the party girl inside us all.

Freixenet, pronounced (fresh-eh-net), is a cava produced in Barcelona, Spain. Cava is a sparkling wine much like champagne, except it’s made in Spain with indigenous Spanish grapes instead of the Champagne region of France. Freixenet’s most popular cava, Cordon Negro Brut, is housed in a matte black bottle, making it as stylish as it is tasty! The bottles come in a mini, 750ml and a magnum size, all of which make great accessories even for the wedding day. The minis are perfect for place cards or escort cards, and the magnum bottle is a great idea for a memento guest book you can open and enjoy on your anniversary and the 750 ml could also be used as table number holders!

DIY Easter Egg Backdrop

DIY Projects

When it comes to weddings, one of the first things that catches our eyes every time is the backdrop. They’re such an easy way to make an eye-catching statement, so we’re thrilled to have this one to share with you all today! Studio Cultivate by Kathryn Godwin + Ruffled collaborated to execute and style this DIY Easter egg backdrop with flowers by Springvine, while Emily Chidester took the reins behind the camera. Of course, this would be a great DIY for any time of the year! If you follow us on Instagram, you will see the backdrop in action for Luna’s First Birthday :)

For this project, you will need:
– plastic Easter eggs
– scissors
– white twine or fishing line
– white spray paint
– acrylic white paint
– tapestry needle
– baster
– gray spray paint (the right shade of gray is hard to find, so we used primer)

Instructions:
1. Cut plastic egg halves apart – trim off the connecting piece. Lay on protected surface to paint.

2. Use a baster to drip acrylic paint over egg, allow to run and drip over egg – this gave a nice texture and variation to the egg. We varied the quantities that we dripped with paint versus what we spray painted.

3. After dripped paint or spray paint has dried, thread your tapestry needle with twine – staring on the inside of the shell, thread and loop through the two holes at the top of the egg, tie in knot.

4. Thread through the inside of the next shell, loop again through the two holes and back out the top- slide shell down to almost stack on the previous egg. By looping through the two holes, the twine will lock into position.

5. Create varying lengths of these tendrils from 5 egg halves to 20-30, depending on the length of the backdrop you desire. After having strung them, we dusted them with spray paint once more to help cover any area there may have been chipping.

6. Suspend from a strong bar that can withstand weight, and cluster tendrils together – creating a heavily layered backdrop transforms the otherwise recognizable material into something unexpected.

Alternatively, if you’re in a pinch for time, you can string plastic eggs and spray paint them (using the paint + primer cans). Open them up, and starting string the halves with knots in between each.

South African Wedding with a Glam Gown

Romantic Weddings

We wholeheartedly agree with today’s bride, Chrisli, who says that simplicity can still be exciting as long as it’s well-executed. If you need some convincing, just take a look at her wedding! South African wedding professionals dna photographers, AnnaH, and Fleur Le Cordeur helped Chrisli and Matt find their true wedding potential

From the bride, Chrisli: We wanted something sophisticated, but still young, fresh and out of the ordinary. We believe less is more if it’s well executed – and there’s always space to add a touch of your own personality. Let’s just say we went for ‘red carpet’, not fairytale!

We wanted simplicity and sophistication, with a touch of personality. Our colour scheme was natural, white, wood and a touch of gold and yellow for fun. Minimalist, simplistic, sophisticated, fresh, slightly off-beat, light and summery!

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? 1. Don’t get lost in the detail – remember the main reason for the day (if you end up marrying the love of your life, everything went according to plan!) 2. Hire a wedding planner (they save you many hours, tears and frustration…and most likely money too) 3. Download a To-Do list app (like Wunderlist) to keep track of everything that needs to be done.
