In love: Ashy & Terrance {Janeke Wissekerke Photography}

Spring has sprung {styled shoot}
We recently had a spring styled shoot photographed by Lerika from Lika Photography at the Hertford Country Hotel & Function Venue.

The idea for the shoot was to work around pastel colours and a doughnut cake from a pin on pinterest. I wanted to use light pink roses and a dinner plate set that I bought at Mr Price Home a good few years ago. The lovilees from The... Read More
