SPRING has SPRUNG! Launching us into the start of the wedding season for 2011/12! This being the ideal time to share, another memorable GELIEFT wedding gown created especially for the lovely bride, Monique Meyer Soole.
Monique booked a consultation in August 2010, after a long search to find the PEFECT Wedding Gown! She landed at our door, after a friend referred her to the GELIEFT-studio! The main concept was to create a bespoke gown with classic style lines to enhance her beautiful figure and the design elements drawn from old fashioned style and Vintage flair…
We had the ideal combination for such a dress-Duchess satin, raw silk, the finest Chantilly lace combined with multiple layers of soft dotted dress tulle and subtle beading to embrace the vintage elements of her references! The silhouette was a strapless gown running into a moderate A-line skirt-section, elegant and sophisticated!
Monique and Charlie got married on the 9th of April 2011, a lovely mid-Autumn festive affair at the De Hoop Nature Reserve outside Bredasdorp in the tranquil Overberg district. Both the ceremony and the reception happened outside, which created a relaxed and inviting atmosphere for all the close friends and family!
We referred Monique to Anina le Roux from Lily Blue, to indulge in a stunning pair of pear drop earrings to compliment her bespoke GELIEFT-Gown! The birdcage veil was created by us to match her one-of-a-kind gown. The detail was kept simple; decoratedwith a twill satin bow and vintage ornate brooch that Monique inherited from her Grandmother.
The day was capture by noted wedding photographer, Wesley Vorster – and we truly feel that these images reflect the most heartwarming moments of Monique and Charlie’s Special day! It was a PRIVILEGE to contribute to such a memorable day!
