In between all the dresses for brides-to-be this coming season, we have to make some time to flaunt the GELIEFT-brides of 2011! One of them is Susan Doubell, now Mrs. Schloms, whom married her ‘MATCH’ Heinrich in October 2011.
It was an absolute blessing to work with Susan and all her bridesmaids. As we had the task of creating the Wedding gown as well as the bridesmaids dresses. Susan radiates calmness, sincerity and inner happiness and that truly reflects on the beautiful images you are about to enjoy!
Simplicity, understated with a nostalgic twist was the ultimate feel for Susan and Heinrich’s wedding day. They envisioned a natural, serene untouched environment without clutter and opulence. A day where people will remember the promise of love and not the feathered-headdress of a guest was the main objective! And the result was exactly as they planned. A wedding in Eersterivier, a remote little holiday town at the sea, an hour and half from Port Elizabeth was the ideal place!
Now here’s the part of the dress, that one-of-a-kind gown every girl dreams about! Susan wanted effortless elegance and a simplistic design with a hint of reminiscence to a classic style of a past era.
The silhouette, a trapeze cut from the waist in a combination of duchess satin, dress tulle, polka dotted mesh and corded lace with subtle beading for a bit of sparkle.
The bridesmaids dresses were sublime all created in natural fiber cloth; in neutral colours paired with thin leather waist-tie belts and pearl earrings.
Susan’s earrings were from VERA’S Bridal Collection. We stock all the pieces at the studio. Her shoes a comfortable pair of leather sandals with a seventies-wooden heel. A touch of BOHO-chic!
The amazing photography was done by Annemari Ruthven. ENJOY!!!
