Inspired by a romantic, summer-love feeling, today we transport you to a whimsical coral garden wedding elopement, captured by Ian Odendaal Photography.
A selection of whimsical wedding flowers in pastel hues were styled by The Love Knot, showcasing elegant shades of a summer garden wedding. Peonies, Hydrangeas, Garden Roses, Snap dragons and Lisianthus were combined in a beautiful selection of vases to create and air of romance and softness. Silver Swallow Design created a whimsical dream of a gown combining a coral, open-backed bodice of floral lace with a whimsical grey tulle base.
Soft cascading bouquets and floral hairpieces just added to the air of whimsical summer garden wedding dreams and romance, complimenting the beautiful design dress. A naked wedding cake topped with fresh florals, coral dessert bars with lashings of glitter, and donuts with icing marbled in pastel water colour, and biscuits topped with wispy, pink candy floss clouds create a dreamy dessert table full of treats.
“The backdrop of this small, whimsical wedding perfect for two is lush green filled with interesting little corners and pops of vintage,” shared Ian Odendaal, a wedding and portrait photographer, based in Bethlehem in the Free State. “The table decor is effortless, set with treasures from the cupboards. Flowers add color and the stationery by Silk and Twine creates a love letter kind of romance.
The dress is in soft pale tulle with a coral lace bodice. The low cut back makes it a timeless piece, and her daughters will probably wear it one day too. We enjoy this unconventional time loop, listening to Andre Rieu’s wedding playlist, and eating cake out of antique crockery. Life is simplified, and these fleeting moments and emotions captured on camera as they happen.”
