Hello everyone! hope you are all well. I’m so sorry for neglecting you on the blog, its been so hectic here at Pure Pearls HQ but i’m back now on here with more real weddings, inspiration and information. Today I’m super excited about sharing with you this glamorous wedding all the way from South Africa my home country.The wedding of Gontse and Reggie captured by the incredible Michael Tree. This cute couple planned their own wedding over a period of 12 months and i must say, they did a brilliant job. Gontse was gracious enough to let us interview her, hopefully you will be inspired by her planning process journey.
Hello My Preciousness. I’m sure most of you are happy it’s Friday, I know I am. If this is your first visit to this blog welcome and do come back again. Wishing you all a great weekend whatever it is you have planned.
For those of you who loathe bling, this post is probably not for you. Today I will be looking at crystals and give you a few pointers on how you can incorporate them into your décor design/venue styling.
Have you ever wondered how the most successful event designers come up with show stopping designs/venue styling ideas? Well the answer is simple (and this is only my humble opinion, I stand to be corrected). They use an abundance of one to three things together, whether it be flowers, pearls, crystals, or lighting to create a desired ambience for their clients.
Trying to figure out how to fairly seat family and friends is no easy task. Be careful and mindful who sits next to whom. You don’t want to seat aunty so and so next to uncle Bill, if they don’t get along. I think weddings can either bring out the best or worst in people (especially after they’ve had a few glasses of bubbly). You cannot afford to have a big fight break out on your wedding day. You want your wedding to be remembered for the right reasons.
Morning my Preciousness! Today’s post is a bit controversial as many people might not agree with me but I feel so strongly about this that I had to write this post. I was recently thinking about starting out photographers and how their services could benefit couples on a low budget. I can hear you asking why couples should trust starting out photographers, for all you know they might just be taking you for a ride. I know couples might be wary and to be honest no one wants to be experimented on especially on the biggest day of your life.
As the summer weeks wind down, it will soon be winter. As the seasons change so does everything else, from flower prices to venue hire prices. Most things will be slightly lesser than in the summer months.
To be honest I like summer but I’m looking forward to winter months (even though I feel the cold). I have a couple of weddings I am working on and so I’m excited to see the faces of my clients as they see their vision realized.
I don’t know if it’s the holiday spirit or Christmas hype but there is just something extra ordinary about winter weddings.
So for those of you planning a winter wedding here are two mood boards to get your creative juices flowing.
Blush Pink and Gold
Blush for winter weddings? Isn’t blush associated with only summer weddings? No my lovely, Blush is a perfect color for winter weddings too. Why? 1. It is not expected to be used in winter. 2. It looks elegant if paired with gold or white on white decor.3. It is timeless. Your wedding photos will still look current even after decades.
