The definition of a soirée is a gathering or get-together, especially a posh or elegant one.”
I got to collaborate with some of Bloemfontein’s most talented creatives and it was oh so magical!
We created this “styled shoot” to showcase the people behind the brands and to inspire brides to push boundaries when it comes to creativity. The inspiration behind the shoot was the Pantone color of the year, Living Coral, and it was paired with pastels to appeal to the Free State market. The evening took place at one of Bloem’s most popular Venues, Montebello Estate, who spoiled us with delicious canape’s and this gorgeous hall.
Ulrich and his team from Grand Room Design blew me away with their amazing decor and creativity while Chané and Shaun from Room of Bloom created the most amazing floral installation with a sweety chandelier. There were beautiful flowers all over the room, from hydrangeas to dahlias to oversized pastel painted leaves dipped in gold. The ambience was perfect both indoors and outdoors with chandeliers, draping and pendant lights thanx to Dylan from Lighticle.
Ronel from Studio Luxe Collective styled each lady and made sure we each had a funky hairstyle to go with our look. On the day of the event we had our makeup done by MUD Studio Bloemfontein where Karlé and her team had the opportunity to create coral inspired looks.
All the ladies were dressed in whimsical dresses by my talented friend, Elizmarie from El Heathcote Designer Wear and we all felt like queens!
You will definitely be inspired to create a stunning desert table at your wedding when you see what Carrie from Carrie’s Cookies and Cakes had in store for us! From pastel colored cheese cakes, to coral toffee apples, cotton candy and the most amazing cakes and macroons.
No soirée is complete without delicious refreshments and Tanita from Vinimark made sure to spoil us with blush bubbles and gorgeous wines.
