This post by our friends, welovepictures has my heart. All of it.
What restraint. Simplicity. It reminds me that the small things are really the big things and makes me want to sigh a simple sigh of pleasure and relief.
What it also made me want to do is bring back one of my favourite kind of blog posts. In the very beginning of our Seven Swans world I adored creating these moodboards. Now we are bringing them back and we are more than excited!

In South Africa it is full on Autumn and we find ourselves rather jealous with all the Northern Hemisphere wedding bloggers bragging about Spring. Well, we got our own back with this Swan Love mood board filled to the brim with floral goodness!

At Seven Swans we love the colour teal and all colours even remotely close or related to teal. When we saw Gielie and Ilana’s wedding photographed by the amazing Lizelle Lotter (man, can she capture LOVE) with stunning flowers in cute lace adorned tins by Vars Liefde, we just felt a Swan Love coming up. So here goes:

The smell of Autumn is in the air… cool mornings, oak leaves starting to colour… and here at the Seven Swans studio we are going crazy for the new season’s details. Folky weddings tucked away in the woods, dusty colours, plywood and crates, airplants and banksias, oh and when we look at paper we want nothing but recycled cardboard!

Still so in love with this colour! Especially after seeing it pop in welovepictures’ latest blogpost! All images by the talented duo welovepictures except for the grey dress via Erin Ever After.
