Bernidette & Alex
August 2017

Bernidette & Alex – a stunning couple who now reside abroad. Berni wanted a “woodlands” feel to her wedding, but Alex wasn’t keen of greenery… these photo’s reflect the compromise. The Nutcracker were the hosts for their special day and Koringkriek Photography were there to capture every moment.

Bernidette and Alex – Thank you!! I LOVED working with you and getting to know you and your families – wishing you both all of the very best on this adventurous new chapter in your lives. With love, Sam. x

Chantelle & David
April 2017

Chantelle and David’s had a “succulent-inspired” wedding at The Nutcracker. Everything was unique and non-traditional – from the bridal bouquet, to the main table succulent ‘flower’ runner, to the over-sized birdcage filled only with succulents!! Thank you Chantelle – I loved working on your concept!! Wishing you and David much happiness together. xxx

Talani & Jason
March 2017

This ‘beachy’ couple wanted the brightest colour scheme possible for their country flowers. They had loads of beautiful lanterns in the trees with hanging bottles of flowers and hearts to all compliment the themes.

Oh to be a kid at this wedding!!! The photo’s speak for themselves. There were sweets on-tap and loads of activities – what more would a young person want at a party?

We custom-made the place-name board for Talani and used it to bring her colour-scheme together.

I came across this saying the other day and thought… and this is my wish for you – “Start the day with a smile and finish it with champagne.”
Love to you both. x

Megan & Ryan
February 2017

Megan and Ryan got married at The Nutcracker Country Estate.

Splendid Productions did nothing short of a “splendid” job at the photography of Megan & Ryan’s wedding at The Nutcracker. The venue is beautiful as it is, but in these photo’s it looked spectacular! Megan and her Bridesmaid’s looked gorgeous and I especially love the photo of them all next to the hanging structure and main table because the contract of textures is amazing. For the hanging structure we used so many different varieties of greenery all with differing textures and colours to create the feeling of abundance. This we contrasted with the lanterns hanging down to add the romance….

Megan and Ryan – congratulations on your wedding – wishing you both much love for the future together, love Sam xx

Marike & Peter
February 2017

Marike and Peter got married at Woodlands COuntry Lodge.

“LIVE, LOVE, SPARKLE”
Marike – you will always be “my Bride with a sparkle!” You stand out for me for your absolute love of all things “sparkly”. It was wonderful to meet you and your Mom and work with you on planning your sparkly wedding.
Woodlands was the perfect venue for this bling occasion. The table center pieces were spectacular as they were, so we did simple, pure white flowers for the top of them, so as not to detract from the bling, and then added some fairy lights….. The Main Table had mirror vases of roses and lisianthus for added drama and of course….. more fairy lights.

Marike – wishing you and Peter much love. Don’t let anyone ever dull your sparkle girl!!
Big hug, Sam x
