Theresa and Hentie

I had the pleasure of getting to know this lovely couple a little more a few months ago when I did their engagement shoot. From then on I knew their wedding was going to be an extra special one, and it was so much more than I could ever have hoped for a as a photographer! Everything was beautiful and romantic and the whole day was just filled with love.

They celebrated their wedding at Nelson’s Creek in Paarl where the weather was perfect and the surroundings were as gorgeous as this couple. Their wedding was expertly put together by Maridene from Rapple Events and every detail was taken care of.

Theresa and Hentie are such a lovely couple, so caring and considerate. They love each other so completely and they appreciate each other so much. I am so grateful that I got to meet them and be part of their very special day.

“Should this be the last hing I see
I want you to know it’s enough for me
Because all that you are
Is all that I’ll ever need
So in love, so in love”

Elanza and Gavin

This was one just one of those days! Everything was just perfect and ran like clock work. I met Elanza and Gavin at their home a couple of weeks before their wedding day and we chatted about the day. Elanza explained their decor choices and how they wanted the venue to look, but she really didn’t prepare me for the gorgeousness I found when I arrived! The venue they chose was 401 Rozendal and it is so perfectly unique. A mixture of old and new, such an interesting space. And their choices suited the venue so well.

When I got to Elanza, the picture perfect prettiness continued! She chose a gorgeous dress that she looked so amazing in and with her red hair and beautiful eyes, she was a vision. Suzanne from Skoonlief was doing the finishing touches to her make-up when I arrived and she was just beaming!

The ceremony was emotional and full of happiness and laughter. I loved the way Elanza and Gavin looked over at each other throughout the ceremony. Like they were both just so grateful for one another and so in love.

We spent the rest of the afternoon having fun with group and couple’s pictures, horse flies and little 4×4 trail! The evening was spent sharing an amazing meal with their friends and family as well as some chill time in a really cool Moroccan lounge complete with bright colours and hubbly!

Thank you to you both for having me as a part of this spectacular day. I am so grateful I got to know you a little and that I was there to witness your start your life together. I hope these are memories you will cherish forever.

Melissa’s Matric Farewell

With Matric Farewell season in full swing, I got to spend the afternoon with Melissa and her lovely family. What a beautiful girl, both inside and out! She wore the most amazing green dress that suited her so well and was escorted by her friend Marco. The event was held at Eureka and after a little car trouble they arrived at the venue for a fun evening.

I hope the night was all you hoped it would be Melissa. All the best for the last few months of your school career. x

Estelle Matric Farewell

I have known Estelle for just over a year, she recently joined the gymnastics club where I train. So I am used to seeing her in a leotard and a tracksuit, what a change this was! She was so excited for this very special day and she really did look like a princess. Her dress fit her perfectly and her make-up (done by her cousin) was just right for this occasion.

Thank you to Estelle and her family for welcoming me into their home for this special occasion.

Lauren and Alton

This was my first wedding of the season and it was the perfect way to start. I have known Lauren and Alton for a number of years through mutual friends and they are really a wonderful couple. So relaxed and able to be totally silly with each other which I really love! They brought elements of their personalities into the day and were just totally themselves. Lauren is an animal lover and their beloved pitbull puppy was represented on their wedding cake!

Their story is really special, they have known each other for years and lived in different cities. They remained in contact over the phone while their lives developed seperately. And finally the universe decided it was time and Lauren was able to move to Cape Town to be with Alton. This day was a long awaited one for both of them.

Lauren and Alton chose to spend the day with friends and family at Delvera Wine Estate just outside Stellenbosch. Although the day started off a little stormy, we were lucky enough to have gorgeous sunlight for their photographs. We had such a fun time taking their couples photos and I loved that they were silly throughout while still giving me amazing romantic poses!! Well done Alton!!!

I wish you a life time of happiness, love and laughter. May the memories of your wedding day last forever and may your love for one another never change.

Theresa and Hentie’s Engagement

Theresa and Hentie will be getting married next month, and after spending the afternoon with them in Kalk Bay, I am even more excited for their big day. They are both such lovely people and really love each other in a pure and simple way. Their faces light up when they look at one another and there is so much mutual respect which is so amazing to see.

Thank you both very much for a great afternoon and I hope you enjoy your pictures.

Lauren and Nathan’s Engagement

I am so excited to share these images :) Lauren and Nathan will be getting married in January 2015 and they decided that a wintery engagement shoot would be a nice contrast to their summer wedding. Lauren told me she loved Kalk Bay as they both grew up near by. I immediately jumped at the chance to shoot there as it is one of my favourite locations. We met on a weekday afternoon so we felt like we had more privacy than on a busy weekend.

I had a great time shooting them and getting to know them a little better. Despite telling me they had no idea how to act in front of the camera, they were both naturals. Their love just shines through and brings the real love and romance to the images that I just adore.

Thank you both for a fun afternoon, I am so excited for your wedding day :)

Andy and Tozy’s Engagement

I recently had the great pleasure of meeting Andy and Tozy for coffee to discuss a few things about their upcoming wedding. I knew right away that I would have a really fun time shooting this couple :)

Their wedding will be this December so we met up last week to do their engagement shoot at Tokai Forest. Andy brought along her amazing collection of high heels which I just loved! I don’t wear high heels myself but I love them all the same. Andy doesn’t get to wear them on a daily basis at work so she loves to dress up when she can and Tozy just looks cool in everything!

These two are such a fun and suave couple, I really can’t wait for their wedding day!

Chantelle and Kyle

Chantelle and Kyle’s was the last wedding of my season and I really couldn’t have asked for a better ending. Everything ran so smoothly, the weather was perfect and the couple just proved to me again that real love can be found.

Chantelle got ready at her parent’s home surrounded by her lovely bridesmaids and her family. She remained very calm until the dress went on, then a few butterflies started to appear! She looked so gorgeous in her simple dress with her glowing skin. This special couple are expecting a little bundle in the next few months so this wedding really was the beginning of their family.

They chose Bon Amis for their reception which is one of my favourite venues for smaller weddings. We had such fun with the couple and bridal party pictures before the sun set quickly behind the hill reminding us that it is winter! I really do love winter light and if you are lucky enough to get a day like this for your winter wedding, it really is a photographer’s dream!

The reception was filled with laughter and very entertaining stories about both Chantelle and Kyle. They impressed all their guests with a specially choreographed first dance which they had been working on for weeks.

Thank you both for being so welcoming and so happy to do anything :) I really enjoyed being part of this day with you and I hope you cherish the memories for a life time. Lots of love and luck with Baby Harker.

Chantelle Harker I just love it! Couldn't be more happier! Thank you x x

Annette and Steve

Annette and Steve’s was the first of my winter weddings this season and they really were blessed with a beautiful day. Their wedding took place at In The Vine in Somerset West, it really is a lovely venue and is becoming a favourite of mine. It is simple, yet elegant and it seemed to fit this pair just perfectly. I loved the pastel coloured bridesmaid’s dresses Annette chose as well as the boy’s attire, very cool!

Annette seemed a little anxious when I arrived to shoot her preparation but that all simply disappeared the moment she got to the end of the aisle and placed her hand in Steve’s. His adoration for her was so obvious throughout the day and especially as he shed a tear as she came down the aisle. Their ceremony was a perfect blend of tears and laughter. It was made extra special by the inclusion of Steve’s children as well as Annette’s mother and Steve’s sister.

The rest of the day was just a happy celebration for a couple who deserve nothing but happiness together.

Thank you both for allowing me to share your day with you. I hope you both cherish each other for your life time together, you are an inspiring couple.
