If you are a true SMPer, if the love of beautiful weddings runs through your veins even long after (or before) you are married - then you know Jose Villa plus Joy de Vivre equals perfection. Pure, can't be matched perfection. It never ever fails, when they join forces inspiration turns into something even prettier than you could possible imagine, and that is precisely what happened with this shoot they teamed up for (which is now gracing the pretty pages of Flutter Magazine). It's nothing short of magical - with breathtaking details shot in a way you can't put words too - and it's all waiting for you right here.

And how about a little look behind the scenes of all this stunning inspiration from Lola Film & Video? How could you possibly resist...

From Flutter Magazine... From its colors to its prints and textures, African design has inspired everything from fashion to interiors. With this shoot, I aimed to take a look that most brides would see as risky and turn it into something chic, sophisticated and timeless. The result is a contemporary take on South African design done in soft neutrals with pops of other colors common to the African palette.
