La Reine Blanche : The Style of Marie Antoinette

Inspired by the hair & make up of Marie Antoinette and the Rococo era,  to showcase a couture bridal style for the fabulously flamboyant and unique bride. The style elements include avant garde hair, opulent couture gowns and all white on white details. It screams drama, theatrics and luxury because every bride should feel like a queen on her wedding day.

These handpicked Kobus Dippenaar Atelier couture gowns where an intricate part of the styling. With detailed beading, big skirts and luxury fabrics we were able to showcase a contemporary regal elegance that captures the opulence Marie Antoinette was all about. The style is very specific to the bride who enjoys the finer things in life, good food and Haute Couture fashion. She rejoices in feeling fabulous, unique and is definitely a trendsetter.

The light and atmosphere created by the romantic arches in the Pavilion at Belair Country House  was perfect as a backdrop for the extravagance of the floral table arrangements designed by the talented Gerrit and his team from the Beanstalk Group. Incorporating touches of gold in between the flowers and a draped floral design created a table set for a queen.   The exotic white orchids is an added luxury.
