from the photographer… “The shoot inspiration was simple – mountains right along a coastline with soft blue water; boulders breaking up smooth beaches. We wanted the nature of Cape Town to set the stage for this session. I pictured a very soft, organic session, complete with windblown beach hair. Chelsea’s hair was in loose, beachy waves, styled by Marnel Toerien. In addition to providing natural hair and makeup, Marnel was amazingly during the shoot itself. She took care of many of the final logistics and stuck around to touch up hair and makeup along the way – and of course, to wear the veil or flower crown when not in use.”

“Chelsea wore the effortlessly chic Casey gown from Janita Toerien – a Cape Town designer. The halter-neck dress has a heavy corded lace bodice and a flowing chiffon skirt. Janita also made the cathedral length veil that Chelsea wore. Jeanette from Paramithi Wedding Flowers created an impressive lush bouquet filled with outstanding floral elements. From tulips to lilacs, and pink wildflowers plucked off the highway, this bouquet was a sight to be seen. Jeanette even incorporated greenery from her own backyard. It was an impressive bouquet for sure.”

“In addition, Chelsea wore a flower crown to match, providing an elegant ethereal bridal look. Chelsea and John were so much fun to photograph. Every movement was an image and we couldn’t even keep up! They were so natural and worked off of each other so well.”
