We are Grant & Wilna Williams from Grant Photography SA in Roodepoort, Gauteng. Creating & designing wedding elements that are meaningful & eye catching are one of our favorite parts of being wedding photographers. We are so excited to share with you our dramatic affair styled shoot! Our goal was to bring in beautiful rich, deep colours to interlace this unique inspirational event.
A few of our inspirational elements included the forest, elephants & sunset near the dam and open field. We want to let brides know that you can create your wedding inspiration from any elements you love. We had the best time exploring nature at Askari Game Lodge and Spa in Magaliesburg, Gauteng. Imagine yourself standing in a big open field with a soft breeze blowing through your hair. The grass ripples in golden waves across the background. If we could give any bride out there advice, it would be to trust your photographer & just have fun with your session! We had an absolute blast.
The jewellery & headpieces were designed by Helena's Crown, bespoke bridal headpieces, jewellery and accessories in Benoni, Gauteng & complimented each dress beautifully. Our amazing gowns was designed by New Romantics Bridal Couture in Bergbron, Gauteng. If you are looking for your princess dress they are a must visit with all their pieces designed by Nadene herself. Our advice to brides is to try on at least a few choice gowns, not just the first one you fall in love with. This is a once in a lifetime experience so have fun with it!
Makeup was done by the talented Kuschke from Royal Tree Makeup Artistry in Potchefstroom, North West. Waving her magic wand & making our girls look absolutely breathtaking. The stunning crown & bouquet were designed by Jeanne from Bride In Bloom in Randburg, Gauteng. She did a wonderful job choosing the perfect flowers to go along with the looks we had in mind. The very talented Chantelle, owner of Artistry Hair Design in Bryanston, Gauteng created the beautiful hairstyles that completed the final look. Our models, Marisa & Celine, were perfect for our vision. They were so much fun to be around.
We had incredibly talented vendors collaborating with us. Together we were able to create a very unique and magical ambiance. Thanks to our Assistant, Matthew Hannafey for assisting us during the shoot. The vendors that helped pull off this styled shoot did an incredible job & we could not pull off any of this vision without this team. We couldn’t be happier with the gorgeous styled shoot & we hope you love it just as much as we do.
