Bella La Vita. Life is beautiful.

The Italian inspired styled story plays off at the beautiful Casa Toscana Guesthouse in Pretoria. The whole day was surrounded by an Italian atmosphere, and this definitely helped to create the perfect mood which ticks all the correct boxes.





Nomination Italy jewelry can be described as handcrafted perfection. The perfect piece of classic bling to contribute to the mood of the setting. The story that is being portrayed, is this of an Italian job sexy that meets under the Tuscan sun romance. Although light colours were chosen as the colour pallet for the day, it still showcased classic sophistication. Here and there popping colours were used to compliment the look and feel of Casa Toscana Guesthouse. Casa Toscana has become a jewel in the heart of Tshwane’s hospitality; with breathtakingly function venues, romantic accommodation and picturesque weddings. For hosting events, year end functions and shows, the Blou Hond is definitely the right venue. Their Sensi Spa will enhance your overall well-being, whilst their LeSi Restaurant and private gazebos will ensure a romantic evening out or a relaxed business lunch.





The talented Chené Wiese went for a natural yet elegant look with the makeup application, while the eyes were enhanced Minkin lashes by Gartier .





Creating beautiful stories is what photographer Maria Marguerite does best. She plans the mood and setting of the shoot beforehand, and advises both brides and models on her ideas. She creates a detailed mood board that clearly shows how the theme, colours, venue, clothing and make-up will complement each other. What makes her work so unique, is that she collaborates with different suppliers each time. This ensures that each time she has a new and exciting story to tell through her camera lens.
