Dané worked with Liezl Kotze Floral Art to help create her vision and create our space into one of the most beautiful winter venues around Cape Town and the Winelands. We spoke to Liezl on how she created these beautiful pieces and her advice for brides.
What was the inspiration behind the colour scheme in the flowers?
Dané wanted a clean and modern feel in her décor that still exuded a cosy and warm feel. We decided to embrace the winter season and the aesthetic of the natural environment during this time.
Winter in the Cape Winelands offers a variety of rich flora with beautiful textures that we used in Dané’s flowers. She is also such a kind and loving soul, and while she was open to a lot of ideas, we had to find a way to exude her warm personality into the décor.
How did the elements such as the fruit and vegetables fit in?
Based on The Rhebok Restaurant’s own décor, we worked on the venue’s elements with its rustic yet modem interior. We loved the pumpkin wallpaper and the take on a modern Cape farm-style kitchen interior of the venue.
We decided to create a still life piece for the reception based on the Cape Winter’s natural environment and added pumpkins and fruit to compliment the venue itself.
Any tips on choosing/creating wedding flower décor for brides out there?
My advice would be to work with your venue, base your décor and flowers on the venue’s interior and exterior elements. I will also advise brides to work with the season of your wedding day and use the beautiful natural setting of the landscape to help set the mood and define the decorative aspects.
I always think less is more as it can create more impact. For example, you can opt for a lot of flowers and elements that can create an average setting due to there being so much. However, rather base your décor on one or two key striking flowers or elements that make it unique and memorable. Lastly, be clever and stick to your budget!
