Hanlie and I don’t only share a love for beautiful, vintage items – but we’re both also fans of Haute Couture designer, Elie Saab’s simple designs and delicate detailing. Hanlie had never wanted a white dress with a big skirt. She wanted something simple and classically styled with embellished fabric.

Fashioned from exquisite beaded lace, her nude and antique coloured dress had elongated sleeves, a high boat neckline and a small train. The center back was detailed with soft dusky pink buttons and her was waist accentuated with a velvet ribbon belt.

Perusing their wedding pics, I can’t help but let my imagination wander to a place where daring knights and beautiful maidens live. A place where romance is rife and all is fair in love and war. I imagine her there. Being swept up by the love of her life. And living happily ever after.
