Anja Pieters (van Zyl) – 17 May 2014

Throughout the 19th century, workers were typically paid on a Saturday evening. Consequently, the majority would spend the remainder of the weekend having a grand time and therefore were incapacitated for work on Monday – hence the term Blue Monday.

I for one have always loved blue. It conjures up beautiful scenes of the ocean, summer skies and Allium Bulbs. In Ancient Rome brides wore blue to symbolize love, modesty, fidelity and purity.

Blue is also beknown as a lucky charm – hence the term Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed and Something Blue….

Anja’s wedding truly encapsulated all of the above. Her beautiful blue dress consisted of 3 parts. The skirt was fashioned from dove grey tulle and a navy blue velvet ribbon encircled her waist. Her top, a navy body suit, was covered with beautifully beaded embroidered lace which I hand-dyed to get the perfect hue.

Anja is such a creative and unique individual and this dress is a sincere reflection thereof. I absolutely love the look – Anja was so confident and feminine- a personification of bridal bliss.

This beautiful wedding was also featured on The Pretty Blog. You can read more about their blooming romance and browse through the incredible photos taken by the talented DNA Photographers here.
