Our Gauteng Wedding Workshop on the 18th May was held at Arts on Main! Little Pink Book and our amazing suppliers played host to a group of beautiful brides and their special guests. The lovely lady responsible for putting this entire wedding workshop together was Helen from Urban Bloom Events. Helen comes with a wealth of International events and styling knowledge after working abroad for nine years. What sets her apart is her experiential approach to design. What you smell, touch, taste, feel and hear are carefully orchestrated to create the ultimate experience for her clients. And that’s exactly what the guests experienced at the wedding workshop!
Leon and he’s team from Pro-Lighting transformed our Venue into something spectacular with their use of lighting. If you’ve ever had your doubts about the use of lighting at your venue, or think it isn’t that important, you should really reconsider! Their use of lighting will really complete your overall look and feel of your wedding. Also, a very nice touch you can add is to have a Gobo made with your initials on it. This can then be displayed on the dance floor, against the wall or any other area! It’s the perfect way to personalise your wedding!
Our talented photographer for the evening was Chris van Dalen from Studio 77. Chris has been a wedding and fashion photographer for more than 13 years. He has photographed over a 1000 weddings and have been blessed to shoot weddings across the world. His advice to Brides-to-be is to have fun, and lots of it! Maverik Style Wear offers tailor made suits and has more than 4000 swatches of fabric you can choose from. There is nothing they don’t have! They cater for all body types and you can even choose the buttons to fit your suit and/or wedding colours! The stunning wedding dresses on display ware from Wedding Connexion. They stock imported dresses from the likes of Maggie Sottero, La Sposa and many more. They offer dresses to hire or buy and even offer the service of an in-house tailor. So you can be sure that you’ll have a wedding dress that fits perfectly!
Anella Shoes stocks comfortable, imported wedding shoes. For the more daring bride, they can even dye the shoes in any colour you want. Also, if you choose to wear a white shoe on your wedding day, you can dye it a different colour after your wedding. That way, your shoes don’t end up at the back of your closet, you can actually wear them again! Michelle Mellet is a Style Consultant from Chic Physique. The services they offer include wardrobe planning, colour consultations, personal shopping, etc. In a consultation with them they assess your body type, skin tone and other elements. They then advise you on the types of colours you should wear which best suits your skin tone, hair colour, etc. This service is definitely worth considering for your wedding when it comes to choosing the colour of your wedding dress!
Elmarie from Paper Love Studio did an amazing job of creating the beautiful stationery for the evening. She gave the guests very useful tips with regards to wedding stationery. When you go to your stationery consultation, be sure to have your wedding theme, your colour scheme and the type of invitation you would like, in mind. Candice from Candi Makeup believes that when you apply makeup, you should never mask your own beauty. She also offers Spray-tan and uses a product that will not let you look orange. The beautiful flower arrangements, crockery, cutlery, table linnen and chairs were all supplied by Vaughn’s Creations. The aim of their business is to supply their clients with the very best service available!
The mouthwatering cakes on display was from Cakes by Clamillas. Their beautiful cakes are delicious and the fillings range anything from fresh raspberries to nougat filling! And the best part is, they don’t even charge for consultations! Sasha from Prep’ed by Sasha made sure none of the guests were hungry! The canapés were divine, not to mention the Butternut soup with homemade (or “Sasha-made”) bread. She suggests that you chat to your caterer about your catering budget. This is very important as this will determine the type of menu you’ll have. Also, a new trend is to have late-night snacks for your guests, such as mini pizzas or “boerie rolls”, to quench your guests’ munchies. To complement the food, guests could help themselves to the a glass of Paul René MCC. Acoustic Touch kept our guests entertained with their beautiful music. Nicholas from Romanza Films captured the event on video. Nicholas produces a different kind of wedding film with a touch of sugar, cinnamon, spice & all things nice. You will relive the emotions and special moments of your wedding day in Full High Definition on Blu-ray!
