Dear Readers, a warm hello from the Majestic team!


What a busy Summer wedding season we have had! Congratulations to all the newlyweds and honeymooners and newly engaged couples out there, love was certainly in the air this summer!  We felt it for sure!

Did you see us at the 3 local wedding expo’s? So much fun meeting all the excited Brides-to-be… One more to go this year so make sure you diarise Wedstock, Slipperfields annual wedding festival on Saturday 18th August. You’ll get to experience their great venue, meet lots of suppliers and have some great food! The perfect way to plan.

 Who is preparing for their winter wedding? Don’t feel that you are compromising on style by wearing a dress with long sleeves…just take some inspiration from Megan Markle’s dress ..…(we had to mention the Royal wedding somewhere), remember the coffee bar and don’t forget to have a nice basket of throws to keep your guests cosy.

Beautiful Devani Benedict won our Cover Bride Competition, you can read all about her special day inside, as well as that of Melissa Ireland who was runner up. They both shared a little wedding  advice with us and let us in on who their preferred suppliers were.

Pantone announced Ultra Violet as the colour of the year for 2018 … We decided to be a little rebellious and took inspiration from their subpalette when we collaborated with local specialists in their field for our Blackbird styled photo shoot, flip to the centrefold to be #superinspired.

For this issue we interviewed two local industry pro’s in order to help you with some tips on choosing the perfect wedding venue and saying yes to the perfect dress… Be sure to take note!  And also find your perfect venue in our special venue feature bringing you the best in the business!

Last, but not least, get to know eight emerging designers, in a feature brought to you by the Mandela bay Development Agency.

Stay Warm, happy Reading and happy planning!

Love from the Majestic Team
