Matt & Audrey… Morrells Boutique Estate

A few weeks ago Grey Likes Weddings, an international wedding blog dedicated to the stylish bride and curated by stylist Summer Watkins featured Matt & Audrey’s autumn wedding. So yes, today we are thrilled to be sharing this wedding on our own journal and tell you all about this dreamlike celebration.

With that very first email from Audrey outlining their ideas, our hearts skipped a beat & we knew right away that we would say YES to photographing their wedding day!
They originally wanted a surprise wedding but due to logistical reasons {and so many close friends travelling from abroad } had to adapt. Their idea morphed into something even more special, with them sharing the secret and having an intimate wedding ceremony in the gardens of Morrells Boutique Estate, nestled right in the heart of Johannesburg, followed by dinner and dancing under the stars.

Audrey, an accomplished illustrator, artist and creative soul, had very unique vision for their wedding day and throughout the process they stayed true to who there are what they wanted for their day. She and Matt also chose to plan it all TOGETHER, right from the very beginning and both of their personalities were reflected in the choices they made.
They wanted to celebrate their love story surrounded by their closest friends and family and chose a small, intimate celebration for that. They wanted something timeless yet modern, classical and elegant.

Audrey herself designed and illustrated their exquisite stationary suite herself which “felt” like slow autumn afternoons… we received the illustrated invite with berries and birdies and touches of burnt orange and we felt like we were strolling in a autumn garden and our hearts were set aflutter….{ and trust us when we say that you want to have a look at her joy full art at Stohne Illustrations & Design }

As she herself explained:

“From the beginning of our love story, we have been calling one another “Big Bird, Little Bird” and as a wedding stationer it was so wonderful to be able to illustrate this element into our visual (wedding stationery) love story. I was able to put my love of painting into my love of planning our wedding. The wedding stationery held the visual elements of our venue, our favourite colours, memories from our engagement and the icons that represented our nicknames for one another.”

Another unique twist: Audrey’s mother designed and made her very ethereal, yet low-key dress which included handmade floral details. And she and her bridesmaids spent the morning doing their own hair and makeup, walking though the venues lush gardens and celebrating the time in what they called a “natural and organic way”… without all the fuss.

Like so many of the couples we photographed these two also asked to spend the absolute minimum amount of time away from their guests. So, we did what we do best: we created quality over quantity and shot in only a few locations around the venue… the staircase leading skywards, a beautiful section of garden and around some sculptured trees. These features were not only just a few meters apart, but they complimented Audrey’s delicate dress, Matt’s classic, light linen suit and made these two look like they walked straight from the pages of Haper’s Bazaar Bride.
