Boho Chic Styled Shoot

 

 

We decided on a Boho-Chic theme with warm gorgeous Autumn colours. It is a flexible theme and you can adjust the Boho-chic colours to every season of the year. Our main colours for the shoot were burnt orange, maroon/burgundy, blush pink and ivory. We prepared 3 different tables to show the versatility when using the Boho-chic theme and colours.

 

 

We collaborated with some of the best wedding Suppliers in SA to show our future Bridal couples that your wedding day can be stress-free, fun and a great success. When you choose the right suppliers, you will be able to enjoy every moment of your wedding day.

 

 

Table one was based on blush pink, maroon and white with elements of rose gold and a shimmering overlay. The bridal table was a mix of burnt orange, ivory, white, greenery with elements of rose gold and lace.

 

Table three was based on burnt orange, maroon and white with elements of black and gold, we mixed lace and a soft glitter ivory runner. We had the privileged to work with amazing collaborators and we would highly recommend each one of them.

 

Floral Design:  Flowers by Retha


 

I love flowers, decor and design- this is my happy space for the past 15+ years. Every wedding design is a big challenge from planning to export. It is so important to complement the wedding theme and décor with the correct style of flower arrangements, flower colors, and flower species that will suit the bride and her entourage.

 

The best moments are when the bride sees her wedding flower arrangements and she cries out of pure joy and pleasure, absolutely worth experiencing these emotions every time. Today after we have made hundreds of brides' dream flowers arrangements come true. We are still very privileged to be on the A list of flower suppliers to the Wedding Industry.

 

Thank you to De Haven Oost Wedding Venue for trusting us with this beautiful Bridal Shoot it was just a privilege to be part of it.

 

Photography: DHO Photography, Videography: Tana Pistorius

 

DHO Wedding Photography grew out of a passion for what we do, being behind the scene and planning weddings at De Haven Oost Wedding Venue. I was drawn towards special and spontaneous moments that were not captured on camera. Special moments before the chapel where a father calms his daughter and kisses her hand, a moment when a mother prays with her daughter before she walks down the aisle.

 

The moment where the groom is blindfolded, and the bride reads her favourite bible verse to him just before they start the ceremony. That moment just before the newly wedded couple walks out of the chapel standing behind closed doors where they see each other for the first time and the love and excitement become’s a reality. I see so many of these beautiful moments that escape the camera lens.

 

I decided these are the greatest moments I want to capture in my lens, these spontaneous moments are what makes your day extra special and are the best moments that will bring a tear to your eye and joy to your heart. This all grew out of love and passion I have for our bridal couples and the start of their life together.

Gourmet Cheese wheels: Belnori cheery Boutique

The idea of a cheesery was born from an article read in a major Weekly Agricultural magazine. Norman and Rina felt it would be something that they too could do. In less than a fortnight someone in a neighbouring town offered a short course on Dairy Goat Animal Husbandry and ‘How to make Feta’.

 

Norman attended this and soon received a Buck as a gift from the same gentleman!  Rina attended a Cheese Course, managed to make a few products and sold these at a local monthly craft market. After the first two markets they were sold out. Much of the cheese-making took place after hours when Rina came home from the office. Norman’s cheese-making skills were honed and as the herd grew, he had to make cheese during the day.

 

Once the herd reached sixty-five Rina left the corporate world and they had to expand rapidly. By this time, they sold at several farmer’s / food/ craft markets and several specialty stores and food distributors. We have a passion for making the best quality cheese for any occasion.
