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.

Helen My beautiful niece and her handsome husband plus excellent photography equal to the best photos I've seen since my own daughter got married. Simply fabulous.

Joanne and Fabio

Oh how I love intimate weddings. There is something so special about them, stripping away all the fancy fair and leaving you with nothing but love and real emotion.

Joanne and Fabio chose a small lunch time wedding with their family and closest friends. It was the most joyous occasion and I loved every minute. We did their couples pictures before their ceremony as they didn’t want to stick to the traditional wedding formula. They were relaxed and comfortable with each other and showed me a glimpse of who they are as a couple. Two wonderfully kind people who know beyond everything, that they want to be together forever.

They shared the most amazing lunch with those close to them followed by their cake as dessert, it was made by Fabio’s mom and was so incredibly yummy!

Thank you for allowing me to have the privilege of sharing such a special moment with you. You two are reminder that in the end, all that matters is love. I hope the rest of your life together is filled with precious moments.

Tanya and Marco

I have known Tanya for many years through attending the same dancing school and ever since I started photography she told me that, one day, I would shoot her wedding. Finally, this day arrived!!!

She and Marco chose Marlenique as their venue for their glamorous day. Tanya has always had incredible taste so I knew everything would be just gorgeous. She was a classic, elegant bride in her Elizabeth Stockenstrom gown and Marco so handsome in his blue Fabiani suite. This is a power couple!!!

Their ceremony was held at their family church and was so special. Every reading and every vow just made me smile. It is so incredible to see two people so happy at each others sides, ready to take on whatever life hands them. The looks they exchanged, the shy smiles and the way Marco looked at Tanya as she entered the church. The entire day was a celebration, all their family and friends were there just for them. And  in return Tanya and Marco made sure their guests were happy throughout the day. The guests enjoyed canapes as well as Seattle Coffee while the couple were off doing photos with me.

Their reception venue was a filled with candle light, soft pinks and gold. It really had Tanya’s stamp all over it! She did an incredible job (as I knew she would!) The speeches were filled with laughter and happy tears, the dancing filled with fun and alot more laughter! These people know how to party :) I had a great time being in amongst the festivities!

Thank you to two amazingly special people for trusting me with the task of capturing these memories. Tanz, you are going to be the best partner to Mux (so Mux you better look after her!!). I wish you all the best love and happy days forever. xx

Michelle and Gareth

I have known Michelle and Gareth for a number of years now, we met through a mutual friend and I was so excited when they asked me to photograph their wedding. They are such a fun and warm couple, they know how to laugh at themselves and with each other and I knew it was going to be one special celebration.

They chose a weekend wedding at Pat Busch Mountain Reserve just outside Robertson. Their family and friends joined them on Friday evening for a braai and a chance for everyone to get to know each other. Everyone pitched in helping with last minute set up and putting final touches to decor items. By Saturday morning everyone had formed new friendships and were ready to celebrate Michelle and Gareth’s marriage.

Michelle got ready at Mo & Rose, a gorgeous guest house in the area. It was non-stop laughter from the time I arrived! Michelle was so calm and so excited, she really was a joy to photograph.

The day was just so special and so well suited to them both. Everything was just taken in their stride and the relaxed atmosphere was wonderful.

The reception can only be described in one way….PARTY!!!! Everyone came together to celebrate this couple in the most fun way. Dancing, laughs and plenty of shooters!!

Thank you Mich and Gareth for allowing me to be such a huge part of your very special day. It is one I will never forget and I am so glad it was me behind the lens to capture your love for one another. Your future together is bright and your love will carry you through anything that you will face down the road.

Sarah Pragtige fotos, Michelle!
Michelle Phillips Kathryn, words can't explain how privilege Gareth and I am to have you as a friend, and for you to have said yes to shooting our wedding! you captured everything we are, and for this we will be forever grateful.
Candace Another amazing blog by an amazing photographer. You are so talented my friend. You capture a picture a love I can only dream to feel.

Tamlyn and Nico

The wedding of Tamlyn and Nico was such a wonderful cosmopolitan affair! What an amazing celebration. Tamlyn is Australian and Nico Norwegian. They had friends and family joining them for this special day from the UK, America, Australia and Norway to name a few.

They chose the gorgeous and elegant Grand Roche hotel in Paarl as their wedding venue. The wedding was planned by Nicolette Weddings and the couple had not even seen the venue until wedding day! Everything was simple and tasteful with traditions from both nationalities incorporated. One of the Norwegian traditions is a song sung about the groom which his family performed to perfection, it was such special and wonderful entertainment!

The evening was ended off with Nico’s whiskey and cigars and Tamlyn’s favourite cocktails being served, it was such a cool personal touch. The entire day was a festive occasion with many laughs and happy tears being shared.

Thank you to you, Tamlyn and Nico, for having me as your photographer. I enjoyed spending this wonderful day with you and wish you all the love and happiness today and always.

Ronette and Albert

I was very lucky to be given the task of shooting Ronette and Albert’s wedding. Not only are they lovely, caring people who I really enjoyed spending time with, but they chose Allesverloren as their wedding venue which is one I have always wanted to shoot at.

Ronette remained bubbly and excited throughout her preparation on the day of the wedding. Her Mom and sister were there to lend a hand and we were there to witness the special moment when her Dad saw her as a bride for the first time. It was really touching.

Their ceremony was held under a canopy of tress, it really is the most gorgeous setting. Ronette’s Dad farms pomegranates so they were incorporated into their decor which I really loved. The guests were served from a delicious harvest table while we were off taking photos, but we still got to taste the goodies as the venue made sure to pack some snacks and drinks in the car for us.

I managed to capture so many natural moments between these two during their couples shoot. Ronette could not stop smiling and giggling and Albert looked at her like she was the only person on earth. They are both filled with such pure love for each other and share a strong faith which brings them closer.

Their reception was wonderful! The speeches were very special and there was a little game for bride and groom. The couple then gave special recognition to their parents, people having birthdays that day and the next couple getting married. It just showed me again how thoughtful they both are, they took that time to celebrate other people on their special day!

The dancing was fun, I always love how Afrikaans people dance! What a perfect day!

Ronette and Albert, thank you, thank you, thank you. I appreciate your warm and caring natures and how welcome you made us feel. I know you two will have an amazing life together, you deserve it. All the love to you and your families.

Robyn and Dewald

I have known Robyn for a few years through the gymnastics community and when she contacted me about photographing her and Dewald’s wedding day, I knew it was going to be a really fun day! She is such an easy going, relaxed person with a crazy side she isn’t afraid to show! And she married a gymnast!! (who happened to have the coolest belt buckle of any groom) The gymnastics family stays strong :)

Robyn got ready in a house on the beach with her bridesmaid, mom and sister at her side. They were all relaxed and enjoying the afternoon together as the ceremony time crept closer. Robyn chose a beautiful wedding dress, simple yet still perfectly soft and romantic. She wore no shoes onto the beach for the ceremony where Dewald was waiting barefoot for her. Their ceremony was blessed by February Western Cape winds but they got to share their vows on the beach which was just what they wanted.

I enjoyed spending some time alone with them during their couples shoot. We walked on the beach, had ice cream and had lots of laughs. I loved the way they laughed at each others jokes and accepted each other just as they are.

They chose Milkwood in Onrus as their venue and what a gem it is! It is right on the beach and has amazing food. The reception was a fun affair complete with a stunning cake!! Wow!! The dancing portion of the evening was all about laughter and being silly, just what celebrations should be about!

Thank you Robyn and Dewald for having me share this amazing day with you. I really am so grateful and I wish you all the love and happiness for the rest of your life together.

Donna and Robert

I met Donna a while ago during work. She is a hair and make-up artist and she has worked on a few of my brides in the past. I was very flattered when she asked me to shoot her own wedding! And of course we both are a little cat mad which made it so easy to get along :)

She and Robert decided on a morning wedding in a relaxed atmosphere which worked so well for them both. They had all the gorgeousness without the fuss of a night time wedding. And I absolutely loved Donna’s Robyn Roberts gown! TO DIE!

They chose Ons Huisie for their reception and it was such a lot of fun! Everyone was totally relaxed and at ease, laughing and taking photos on the beach. Robert made sure that Donna still got her first dance, because every bride deserves a first dance!

Thank you for being such an amazing couple, your love for one another reminds me of how it should really be. I am so grateful I was able to share time with you on your most special day.

Chantelle and Wayne

Chantelle and Wayne were married in the small town of Vredendal where they grew up. I really did get the small community feeling while there. Everyone knew each other and were involved in one another’s lives in some small way. It was such a happy day and they shared many laughs between each other, their family and friends.

They were married at a lovely little venue called Rooms With A View in Vredendal which hosted their ceremony as well as a wonderful reception.

Thank you for sharing this day with me Chantelle and Wayne, may you have many years of happiness together.
