July Wrap Up
So we are officially half way through the year and we hear ourselves saying 2019 can you just SLOW down!
But, saying that, July was filled with so many magical memories that this wrap up is filled with to the brim, so grab yourself a cup of coffee and enjoy our top picks for the month of July.
- Wedding Tennis
Lets be honest, the lawn games that are played at wedding are getting a bit tired – I mean how much croquet can one really play? We are loving the different ideas that are popping up on the wedding scene lately, beer pong and jumping castles being our fave!
We saw these customised table tennis paddles on “The Knot” and we think these are the perfect addition to your wedding day games.
- ‘Forever and Cake’ is baking a baby!
Congratulations to our directory member Kerriden from Forever and Cake.
She announced her pregnancy earlier this month and we are so excited to welcome a little baby to the Hooray Family!
- Jeanne + Co
Okay, have you SEEN the sneakies coming from Casey Jeanne’s latest passion project. This woman has proved herself as a force to be reckoned with in the wedding industry and is now adding jewellery design to her repertoire. #girlboss
- First Dance Gift
This story will have you reaching for the tissues! So be prepared!
Dan and Dre decided to gift their first dance to Dre’s parents to thank them for being the parents that they are. When they were married 33 years ago, they were forced to elope and did not get the chance to have their first dance, so the newlyweds thought this was the perfect opportunity for them to finally get their first dance! Whats even better, Dan played the guitar and Dre serenaded Al Green’s Let’s Stay Together. I mean, come on guys! How special.
- Rituelle Bride
So much excitement as designer Hanrie Lues announced her ready to wear, seasonal bridal range, Rituelle Bride. Our jaws were on the floor when we saw some sneakies from her brand shoot.
A whole host of talented creatives got together to bring her vision to life and we are so excited for this new chapter in the Hanrie Lues book!
- 60 year vow renewal
Isn’t this the most amazing feat? We are all so young and in love, but can you just imagine making it to the sixty year married mark? Abigail Gingerale Photography decided to capture her grandparents in the most beautiful styled shoot to capture their love and tender moments 60 years on. Don’t mind us, while we sit here slow clapping and crying simultaneously.
- Joe and Sophie’s magical day
I mean, we feel like this one is self explanatory but we know we were not the only ones waiting patiently for a sneaky peek on their wedding weekend! A lovely affair with friends and family at a Chateau in France…no big deal!
- Sarah Hyland says YES to her Bachelor!
Anyone Modern Family fans out here? And The Bachelor/Bachelorette? Well then we are sure you read up that our beloved ‘Haley’ got engaged to her hunky bachelor, Wells Adams. We are over the moon and will be waiting in anticipation for any wedding details!
- Celestial Dreaming
All our star loving dreams came true when Tarah, from Magpie Calls created this STUNNING stellar inspired crown. Two questions, can we get married again? And can we wear this?
- Farewell to Friends
Belinda and Andrew Schuil have been the force behind one of KZN’s most coveted venues – Orchards, based in the Midlands. They announced that they will be making the move over to Aus and our Wedding industry is all the poorer for it. We are excited to hear however that Jen from Farmers Daughter will be holding down the fort and keeping brides as happy as ever. Belinda, we wish you guys nothing but happiness on your big move, please know you will be sorely missed!
And that’s a wrap on our picks for July!
If you have anything that you see or would like for us to share in the month of August, then send it our way!
