With these nature’s lovers love for each other and the outdoors ; it was no surprise that they got it spot on with choosing a minimalistic, Pantone Greenery Wedding theme for their special day. Even though they have been planning this big day for more than a year, I was shocked at how perfectly on trend all their planning is with not only the Pantone Colour of 2017 but also what meaning it holds.
Love the Dress
Arné’s beautiful bridal look was artfully created by two really talented people. Suzanne from Skoonlief created a naturally blushing bride look that brought out Arné’s natural beauty and was a perfect match to the delicate intricacies of the lace gown by CJA Haute Couture . It was all gorgeously rounded off with the breathtaking cascading greenery bouquet by Gerrit from Beanstalk.
Greenery signifies new beginnings & reconnecting to what is important in our lives and getting rid of the unnecessary. This thread was seen throughout Arné & Hanco’s planning process. They focused in creating a wonderfully simplistic & stylish breakfast wedding celebration where the focus was on their love story and the people they share their lives with.
Loving you is like breathing – so effortless, so natural. And so essential to life.
A First Look at LOVE
Arné & Hanco chose to do a first look session for their morning wedding not only for lighting purposes but it suited their aim of relaxing and enjoying quality time with their guests after the ceremony.
A glimpse at the festivities
Morning Wedding and your own coffee truck …YES PLEASE !! With their wedding vows made under the trees at Ou Stal Equestrian Estate ‘s forest ceremony area; it just brought together the theme of nature and the love for outdoor adventures these two special people share.
One of my favorite touches was this great seating plan where guests had to replace their name card with a instax photo. A great way to have instant memories of everyone attending your special day !
What would a morning wedding be without a yummy pancake stack ! Mouthwatering and topped with fresh fruit and Macarons this beautiful creation was made by one of the wedding guests.
Love is in the Details
