A Rustic Neutral Tones 1920’s Inspired South African Wedding – Isabel & Carlos

Good morning OMG readers! Hope those of you based in the UK had an absolutely fantastic long holiday weekend. I have an absolutely beautiful 1920’s inspired wedding shot by Cape Town photographer Chery McEwan to lighten the ease back into normal life following the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations!

Today’s couple, Isabel and Carlos, were married at the Nazareth House Chapel in Cape Town and held their reception at the Castle of Good Hope, just near by. With an overall rustic theme with a bit of vintage 20s and 30s styling for the wedding couple, I absolutely love the country colour palette featuring nice tones of champagne, bronze, gold, beige, browns. These accents were present in the super cute fabric flower bouquets, the styling of the wedding party and the vintage candelabras and rustic bowls on the tables for the reception.

Isabel wore a beautiful dress from Bridal Designs South Africa which was offset perfectly by her eggshell blue bridesmaids dressed in Bayley Classics. Carlo’s suit was by Taylor of Buckingham.


Any regrets?
I am a control freak and wish I could have stick by my own decision to stop working 2 days before the wedding – I was still doing things on the day of. I felt rushed and constantly checking that everything was fine during the reception.

Advice from the Bride:
Being the control freak that I am I would advice any bride like me to get an ‘on-the-day’ organiser if you don’t have a full-time organiser.

Best decision made:
– To spend money on a good photographer and get someone that works well with both your personalities. We received loads of compliments on our photos.
– To get a videographer. Initially we were against the idea of a video, but with a video you get to relive some of the moments and see things that you have missed.

Thanks so much to Cheryl McEwan for sharing such a stunning day, make sure to check out her website for more details and enjoy the rest of the day!
