{Real celebration} A Touch of Vintage

It was a perfect day with the sun shining and a slight breeze in the air.  A gorgeous bride, a dapper groom, both totally in love with each other.  You could see it in their eyes, their smiles and in their first kiss as husband and wife!  What a privilege it was to share that special day with Nia + Johan. 

As frequent beach goers, Nia + Johan chose to incorporate a marine theme into their wedding along with a touch of vintage.  As the reception was going to be held at Akuna Bay marina, it was certainly fitting.  To keep the reception and afternoon teas fresh and unique, I decided to focus on the vintage look for the afternoon tea.  As it was a fun and casual affair, I came up with a summery vintage inspired picnic setting, complete with picnic baskets and gingham tablecloths in a gorgeous yellow. 

The table was filled with delicious goodies, both sweet and savoury and the kitchen was a hive of frenzy as family and friends worked hard to keep the hungry tummies filled.  Unfortunately, I didn’t manage to capture the table complete with food, there were just too many people!
