Bianca and Alexey

Bianca and Alexey met with me a while before their wedding day and after listening to their excitement I was looking forward to the day even more.

They chose to get married at De Ouwe Klok in Stellenbosch. It is lovely venue that really showcases the beauty of the area. The couple had told me how important the landscapes were to them so we spent some time shooting wide shots to capture the mountains which Bianca said “make her happy”!

The ceremony took place under the trees and was a lovely mixture of laughter and tears. They chose two readings that were unusual but suited them so well, a sonnet by William Shakespeare and piece by Roald Dahl. Bianca’s nervous excitement showed when she dropped Alexey’s ring and it fell between the slats of the platform they were standing on!! I know it will be a moment they will never forget!!

A family style buffet was served during their dinner reception followed by a gorgeous first dance. Bianca and Alexey both take dancing lessons and I could see how comfortable and happy they were to be in each other’s arms on the dance floor.

To end the evening off we had a little bit of fun with sparklers out in the dark, thank you to my assistant Jo for running up and down with sparklers to try and get the right shot!!

Thank you to Bianca and Alexey for having me there to capture your special day, I had such a wonderful time with you both. Lots of laughs and special moments I will always remember. I wish you all the love and happiness together.

Marene and Arno

“Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairytale”

This quote completely sums up Marene and Arno. There was something so magical in Elgin the day they exchanged vows and started their journey as husband and wife. I am a hopeless romantic but there is just something extra special between them that I can’t quite put into words. The way Arno looked at Marene with complete love and adoration and a sense of wanting to protect her. And Marene told me how many times Arno had come to her rescue and been her pillar of strength. I left smiling and went to sleep that night with such a happy heart!

They were married at the gorgeous South Hill in Elgin on Braai Day!!! They took extra care to make sure their guests had the best time playing lawn games and eating canapes from the braai grid while we were off doing their photos. After telling me how uncomfortable they both were in front of a camera, I hardly had to direct them at all! They just wanted to be in each others arms and look at one another and take in each moment together.

The reception was filled with joyous tears and a most special first dance, so romantic! They left for Mauritius the next morning in their “Just Married” t-shirts and Marene has told me that is was the most amazing holiday and special time for them both.

I can not thank you two enough for choosing me to be part of this day with you. You both really touched my heart and I am so grateful I get to witness love like yours. I wish you nothing but all the best adventures for the future.

Sandy King Thank you Kathryn for these awesome photos of Marene

Rafiqa and Rafeeq

Rafiqa and Rafeeq were married in Spring, a perfect time for a wedding and a new beginning. They are such a lovely couple and I have no doubt that their relationship will continue to grow and blossom. We had lots of laughs during their couples shoot, I love it when couples can just be silly with each other!

It was an amazing day spent celebrating the bride and groom along with their families. I learned so much more about their traditions and culture and I am so grateful for the experience.

Thank you both for allowing me to be such a big part of your special day.

Everdina de Vree I swear this is the most adorable girl i have ever seen

Chivaughn and Neil

I met Chivaughn and Neil the week before the wedding and they were both a little anxious about the day. When I arrived at Langkloof Roses on the day of the wedding, they were both totally calm! I guess when you know, you know.

It was my first time shooting at this venue and I absolutely fell in love with it. Chivaughn and Neil chose to keep the decor simple and let the venue’s raw beauty show and it did not disappoint. The ceremony took place in the most romantic chapel complete with wall of candles. They smiled at each other with such adoration throughout their vows after which they were showered with petals and love from their guests.

Their couples shoot really was so easy for me. They were happy to be in each others arms, kiss and hug and stare into each others eyes. Romance like that can’t be faked!!! Their love for one another is just so easy. They adore each other and support each other, both are such caring people by nature and it shows with one another.

Their reception was great fun with a playlist of swing music that got the guests on the dance floor in a hurry. It was such a fun change from the norm and they both just loved every minute of the laughter.

Thank you both for trusting me with recording your special memories. I am so grateful that I was able to be there with you. I hope your future holds nothing but wonderful moments and days that make you cry and laugh just as much as your wedding day.

Mariam and Mujaahid

My first wedding for the season was Mariam and Mujaahid’s. It was a wonderful celebration of two people and the life they are going to embark on together. I really enjoyed spending their day with them and getting to know them a little better.

They arranged to do part of their couple shoot at the Cape Town City Library which was such a fun experience. I love the romantic, moody shots we got. They were so focused on one another which are moments I love to capture.

Thank you both for having me photograph your wedding, I appreciate all your patience with me :) I so enjoyed learning about your cultures and traditions and thank you for answering all my silly questions!

I wish you nothing but love and happiness together forever.

Yoemna Wow such absolutely beautiful pictures

Tammy and Paul

Tammy and Paul were married in December 2011 and I had the great privilege of photographing their wedding. They have since moved to the UK and on a holiday visit to Cape Town recently, we met up to capture them as a couple almost four years married. We chose the beautiful Langverwagt as the location as this is where they were married. I love the wintery shoot we did complete with Milo, which Paul just wanted to drink!!

Thank you for an amazing afternoon you two special chickens.

Christen and Ismail

This very sweet couple chose to get married in winter, a brave decision but one that was so rewarded with perfect soft light :) It was a magical day and the weather played along just perfectly despite some rain during the week leading up to their day.

Christen got ready at her mother’s home surrounded by her family and bridesmaids. Their ceremony was held in one of my favorite churches in the area. We were lucky enough to have no rain on the day so there was no running from the car into the church :)

Welbeloond was the venue chosen for the reception. The guests arrived to canapes and hot wine while we did Christen and Ismail’s photos. The rest of the evening was fun and easy going. They chose to share their first dance with their bridal party in a choreographed number, it was great fun!

Thank you to this lovely couple for allowing me to capture this day for you. I hope your life ahead is filled with happiness.
