When the pantone colours for Spring 2015 were released I knew this was going to be a great year for weddings and creatives in general. I decided right then and there on my next inspiration shoot as I fell inlove with all the different blues and the strawberry ice. Yet again we sourced our gorgeous dresses from Erika Mengouchi Haute Couture, who actually made a grey veil to exactly match a dress, and Angelique from Angelique Make-up and Hair was willing to help us make the models look their best and make our vision come to life.

The stationery for this styled session was unique because of our desision to use the marbling technique and even though it kept her awake a few nights in a row, Colleen from Lieflingkind Design did a fantastic job using the Pantone colour of the year: Marsala. We used the marbling to fit the english theme as they would normally have a marble cake, we gave it a twist and also used some penny-farthings to round it off. Instead of a normal table number we used letters of the alphabet made out of wood, which kept with the english theme inspired by the setting of Glenshiel Manor in Magoebaskloof.

Glenshiel Hotel was setup in an old english manor house and it was the perfect spot for this session as I have been in awe of it’s beauty since I was a child. To fit in with the abundance of flowers at the venue we incorporated flowers into the model’s hair and made basket bouquets which doubled as arrangements.

The cake on the table was a swiss roll and the guest favours were fudge and salted caramel which matched the colours of the décor and were supplied by Woolworths. To keep with the colours on the table and the theme of an english tea we used scones with marmalade and crumpets with blueberries.

Enjoy the stunning view that we had when visiting this venue as well as some lovely images.
