Another real wedding, and this time I bring you: a beautiful bride who can fly. It’s a gorgeous wedding shot by Kat Forsyth, who shot Bianca and Michael’s wedding in Avianto in August. Kat is a sponsor of English Wedding blog – she’s been photographing weddings in South Africa and is coming to live in London from January. All I can say is, get in touch quickly if you’d like Kat to photograph your big day!
The flying bride title comes from a comment the lovely Anneli Marinovich left on Kat’s wedding photography blog. And I have to add, it’s not just Bianca who gets airborne: Michael can jump pretty damn high!
I love this wedding because Bianca very bravely had her long hair chopped just before the wedding. Michael prefers short hair – hence her strikingly beautiful wedding day bob. And I think she looks amazing.
But it’s not about me: Bianca wrote a short wedding report so I’ll leave it to the beautiful bride to tell her story, and to London wedding photographer Kat Forsyth to bring the day to life with her gorgeous photos.
In short I would say that my day wasn’t stressful, I enjoyed every moment from waking up and grabing Mcdonalds on the way, to watching my mom, mother-in-law and gran putting all the flowers together.
I bought my dress from Morgan and Brown, not too sure what designer. It’s a mermaid style with a dramatic train!
I only had earrings as I’m not much of a jewellery person and wanted to be me on my day. I had cream high heels for the ceremony and after walking out the church I put on some comfortable flats! I don’t believe in the saying that says beauty is pain! I wanted my dress to be the main attraction so I was very plain!
When it was time to walk down the aisle I was so happy and peaceful, it was a special moment when I saw all our friends and family supporting us.
We had a live jazz band that were amazing and created a joyous setting! Speakers were personal,funny and filled with love! I wouldn’t do anything differently!
Michael bought his suit (not too sure where from). Somewhere in sandton city, after going into so many stores you just forget! He wore his watch (fossil) and an hugo black belt.
One of my most memorable moments was my father’s speech. My parents are divorced and my father thanked my mother and stepfather for everything that they had done for me and thanked my mother for bringing me up.
It was just incredible to see the forgiveness and unity. That no matter what their past was they were celebrating together.
Bianca’s wedding day advice
Don’t stress!! Easier said than done! But I would say that you need to stick with a simple yet elegant idea. Don’t get lost in ALL the detail! If you like something go with it and don’t second guess yourself!
The flying bride…. talk about distinctive wedding photos! These are brilliant!
