A Mucha Wedding

Mucha produced a flurry of paintings, mostly featuring beautiful healthy young women in flowing gowns, often surrounded by lush fresh flowers. The women often wore amazing head pieces such as the lovely comb above. He often used soft pastel colors, a utterly perfect theme for a romantic garden wedding.

The Art Nouveau comb can be purchased at Past Perfect Vintage. Wonderful for bridesmaids and not super expensive around $45. The goddess dress can be purchased from the ever wonderful Monique Lhuilllier.

For all you DIY brides below are some divine free Art Nouveau fonts. The first one is Trinigan and the second one in Art Noveau Caps

It is amazing that the littlest details can make the biggest impact on your Wedding day.

Christine Meintjes a UK & South Africa Wedding Photographer

Christine Meintjes a photographer from Cape Town, South Africa emailed us with a few of her favorite weddings and immediately I feel in love with Juan and Adel’s Kalk Bay Wedding. The flowers where absolutely stunning. Love the cactus that was thrown into the mix and they fashionable bridesmaids. It is so nice to see the bridesmaids looking simply stylish.

We have to throw a special shout out to Juan, the groom. He is definitely rocking his own style, which is ever so evident in all the photos. If a groom feels comfortable in his duds, it going to show.

Kalk Bay seems like a dream for those looking for a laid back ocean atmosphere. Filled with vibrant colors, perfect for festive and fun back drops. I love Adel’s dress, the brooch adds such a nice piece of flair to an already beautiful attire.
