Eccentric Nomad


What better place to do a fabulous fun filled celebration of love “elopement” shoot than Cape Town -one of the top wedding venues on the globe!? 

The theme and mood of each stage of the day is reflected through the styling. They were falling in love at the rainy, gloomy World of Birds with all the exotic reds, corals, and oranges embodied through the natural presences.

The couple went for a joyride on the City Sightseeing Red Bus -of course Mishka’s hair had to be put up into a bouncy pony to avoid the wind destroying her beautiful jetblack waves. The look is made more striking with a fire red, matte lip.

Walkabout at the waterfront, having fun in the sun, and strutting some poses before heading to the Radisson’s rooftop for a sundowner. A classic, neat high bun, some plum tones and bronzer caught the setting sun on Mishka’s face like a piece of art. 

Then the couple moves to the beautifully styled indoors where a more bridal experience warms up your heart. JP looks dapper in his tuxedo and joins Mishka dressed in soft, romantic linens with a glossy lip, blush glows, and curly hairstyle. No better way to celebrate the day than with cake!
