Lizanda & NJ – Groenrivier

Lizanda & NJ knew right from the beginning that they wanted a very earthy and natural look for their wedding. The venue, Groenrivier, is set in the picturesque town of Riebeeck Kasteel and sets the tone for a rustic yet elegant affair. We wanted to find a balance between country and modern, and in the process to create something fresh and personal especially for this couple. I know for most brides it is quite daunting to decide between all the options out there, what look would suite them. On top of that you never quite know if all the pictures you liked, will all come together on the day.

We created this relaxed look with lots of contrasting textures: glass, white ceramics, crackly racu pots and lots of wooden elements. For the arrangements we combined herbs, fynbos, artichokes, succulants and things like poppy seed and water lily pods with classic white roses, lisianthus, chinks, veronicas and single stem pom-poms.

When Lizanda saw us setting up the tables on the morning of the wedding, the big smile on her face said it all. The thank you note she sent me the next day really made my heart sing.

Hi Tanya
Sjoe, ek moes net voor ons vertrek op honeymoon vir jou ‘n boodskappie stuur om ‘n masiewe dankie te se vir ons troue se asemrowende mooi blomme en tafels. Die gaste praat nou nog oor die blomme en almal wou net weet wie die bloemis is.
Dankie vir al jou moeite en ondersteuning deur die hele proses, ek waardeer dit baie. Jy is so talentvol en ek wens jou en Studio Bloem se toekoms net die beste toe.
Ons het die aand so geniet en alles het so mooi gelyk! My en NJ se verwagtinge was heeltemal oortref met hoe mooi die tafels gelyk het.

Thanks Jenni Elizabeth for your stunning photographs of the day.
