Andrea and Kyle

Another one of my dancing girls got married!! I am blessed to have been able to shoot the wedding of Andrea and her man Kyle.

The chose Eureka as their venue and it was such a fun day. It was a busy afternoon of Andrea’s preparations surrounded by bridesmaids and moms. Their was lots of laughter and silliness which is just how Andrea is! She transformed from the jeans and sneakers girl into the most beautiful bride, it was emotional and so exciting.

They exchanged vows in a local church and then went on to the venue where the guests enjoyed canapes and drinks while we did their photos. I had such fun with the bridal party before taking the happy couple off for some portraits. We caught some magical sunshine in a field behind the venue where Andrea changed into her trusty Converse All Stars! A girl after my own heart!

The reception continued into the night, heart felt speeches and lots of dancing. It was a true celebration of this wonderful couple.

Thank you Mr and Mrs van der Boon for allowing me to be part of your day. Lots of love to you both, may your relationship continue to grow along with your little family.

Talana and Thomas

I really loved this DIY wedding! It was so full of fun and laughter and everything was so personal and real. This is how weddings should be!

Talana and Thomas were married at Thomas’ family home in Hout Bay. There was no sit down dinner, no formal proceedings, just friends and family joining together to celebrate this amazing couple.

We had great fun during their photo session where we were joined by their bridal party. These two adore each other so much and it shows so evidently in their couples pictures. Couples like this are a dream to photograph.

The rest of the evening was casual and fun. The garden was transformed into a magical space that was so welcoming. There was food and dancing and so much laughter.

Thank you Talana and Thomas for having me be part of this day. I enjoyed it so much and I am so glad that I got to meet you both. I wish you so much love together (along with kitty!) now and for always.

Jenny and Paul

Jenny and Paul made the decision to get married at their home with just their nearest and dearest present. Jenny did the most amazing job putting together this DIY wedding. Paul is from the USA and his family was represented by their family tree made up of black and white images of each family member. I loved this idea of bringing two families together.

It was a gorgeous summer morning and Jenny and Paul exchanged vows at the DIY ceremony site. The guests were then treated to delicious coffee and cookies while we went off to take some photos. A reception site was set up in their back yard where the guests got to hear special stories about the couple and share in a wonderful meal.

Thank you Jenny and Paul for having me capture this day for you. I hope the memories live forever along with your love for one another.

Tanya – La Bella

The word la bella translates to “beauty” from Italian. It is with great excitement that I share my first beauty shoot. I have known Tanya for some years and after having the privilege of shooting her wedding last year, she asked me to do this soft and feminine shoot for her.

I wanted Tanya to feel gorgeous and laugh and just enjoy the time being pampered! We certainly had lots of laughs, and a huge thank you to her cousin Megan for coming along to help out in the silliness department.

I really urge all ladies to give this a try, it is such a fun and wonderful way to spend a few hours. Celebrate who you are, your best side and what you see as your flaws.

Thank you Tanya, I am honored to have done this for you (and your hubby!)

Roxy and Clinton

Roxy and Clinton were married in Paarl on a gorgeous summers day. An elegant wedding in shades of purple. Clinton is the soft spoken gentleman, a doctor no less, and Roxy has a wonderful heart and her love shines through in her smile. I had a wonderful day surrounded by their love and the warmth of their families.

Their ceremony took place on the lawn followed by a wonderful reception at Nantes Estate.

I am so grateful to you both for allowing me to share this day with you and to get to know you a little better. I wish you a wonderful life together, growing from strength to strength.

Nadia and Jaime

Nadia and Jaime were married on a beautiful day in Paarl and it was a glamorous celebration! I had been in contact with Nadia a fair amount leading up to the big day and she had filled me in on all her plans. Everything came together beautifully!

They were married at Nantes Estate and the venue was transformed by the ladies from Pucinni Creations. Nadia chose a colour pallet of merlot and gold which was accompanied by a little bling.

The couples friends and family joined them for a wonderful meal and a night of dancing after witnessing them exchange vows at St Augustine’s Church.

Congratulations to you both! I hope you share a lifetime of love and happiness. Thank you for allowing me to be such a big part of this day.

Bernadette Stunning photos, so sorry to have missed such a beautiful day! May you be truly blessed!

Tarnay and Vincent

Tarnay and Vincent were married on a gorgeous summer day at Simondium’s Country Lodge just outside Paarl. A day full of smiles and laughter.

Tarnay was calm and smiling while she prepared for the big day while Vincent, who is the more shy of the two, spent the early part of the afternoon with his boys. They chose soft pastel colours for their decor that was beautifully complimented by Tarnay’s blush wedding gown.

They said their vows in the rustic barn which was such a lovely unique backdrop. We had lots of fun doing their photo session, groomsmen with cigars in hand and bridesmaids full of laughter. The newlyweds then spent a little time with me for their couples portraits and Vincent’s shyness disappeared with his new wife by his side.

The reception was marked with enthusiastic dancing! The dj played such great music that had me tapping my foot behind the camera!

Thank you to this perfectly matched couple for allowing me to be part of this day. I enjoyed spending it with you and capturing your memories. Lots of love to you both for now and forever.

Roxy and Clinton’s Engagement

I recently met up with Roxy and Clinton at Kirstenbosch Gardens for their engagement session. I love getting to know couples in this way before their wedding day so I enjoyed having the time to chat while we walked through the gardens.

I hope you enjoy the happy images we captured :)

Ashleigh Absolutely Stunning!

Petra and Davin

I was very excited when Petra and Davin booked me to shoot their wedding and then told me it was at Strandkombuis in Yzerfontein! I really love this venue, it offers something so unique and special and I just knew it was going to be gorgeous. Petra has beautiful taste and her decor choices certainly showed that. Everything was romantic and classic and kept with the soft colours that suite the beach so well.

They were both relaxed during their ceremony, exchanging vows on a sun drenched beach surrounded by their family and friends. Daniel, their son, was always close by and ready for a cuddle.

The mist rolled in just before we started with the photo session which gave us some perfectly moody images. I have never seen weather conditions change so fast but it really did aid my shooting :)

The evening was filled with fun and laughter and all the guests just having a great time. It was one of those weddings where everyone got along no matter if they knew one another or not. Everyone was there for Petra and Davin and having a good time was the only option.

Thank you both for having me there to capture your memories, it really was special for me. I hope you will look back at these images for the rest of your lives and remember this special day.
