Oh, are we in for a treat today! When the question is, “Is it too much?” and the answer is, “Never!” you know it’s going to be good. More flowers, more candles, more boho romance—more is more and we’re here for it.
This editorial comes to us by way of South Africa, on a working farm + vineyard called Hoogstede. The shoot location has a cool industrial + worn vibe, creating a really unique space to build something incredible. Celebration Theory took the reigns on the design, while Liezl Kotze Floral Art got to work on crafting a few floral masterpieces.
Let’s have a look at all the incredible details captured by Julia Winkler!
A pop of pink never hurt anyone, and we’re happy to see that Oh Yay! agrees with these pretty paper pieces!
Textured Floral Ceremony Arch
Liezl Kotze Floral Art went ALL OUT with the arch, both in size and florals. The finished product was made up of textured grasses, cotton plants, fragrant roses, hydrangeas, dahlias, and local fynbos, all in white + neutral tones.
And yes, let’s not forget the candles :)
Boho Bride with the Fringe
The Ceremony Setup
Just the dreamiest, right?
A beautiful neutral lounge took shape with pieces from Event’s Architect, who also custom-built the arch!
For one final breathtaking moment, Liezl Kotze Floral Art designed a cascading work of art to tumble down the side of the reception table!
All that texture! Such a stunning day and full of inspiration. Cheers to the talented team!
