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 :)

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.

The Joubert Family

I had the great privilege of shooting Juliet and Marc’s wedding a few years ago. They recently got in contact with me after having the most precious twin boys and asked me to document this next big event in their lives. I got to spend some time with them at home to capture these special images. I love seeing my couples grow into families :)

Genevieve and Dennit

Genevieve and Dennit are a good example of “why wait?”. Gen got in touch with me about 6 weeks before their wedding to say they had started planning, this was the date, was I available. It just goes to show that when you have the love and support of your family and friends, anything is possible.

It was a really wonderful happy day. Gen is such a bubbly person and she really brings out the same fun and silly side of Dennit. One of their passions is Crossfit and in keeping with their unqiue personalities decided to have their ceremony in a their Crossfit gym! I absolutely love when couples remain so true to who they really are and just throw the “rules” out the window. It was so special and so unique and so truly them.

I spent a large part of the day laughing at their jokes and quirks and smiling at their love for one another. They look at each other in that way, you just know this is meant to be.

Thank you to you two crazies for allowing me to be such a big part of this day, it means the world to me. Stay strong, stay happy, stay in love and never stop looking at one another the way you did on this special day. xx

Leandra and Alex

Leandra and Alex are an example of the opposites attract belief. Alex is very quiet and calm, Leandra is bubbly and organised and together they form a wonderful match.

They chose to get married in Spring and they had a wonderful warm day to celebrate the start of the life together. Exchanging vows in a gorgeous church followed by a reception at Eensgezind, the day was filled with family and friends and so much happiness. The couples shoot gave me a chance to see Alex come out of his shell a little more, by the end of it he was posing so well and smiling (with a little help from Leandra!). I really do love this part of the day as I get to see them as a couple without the outside distractions.

The celebrations went into the night with traditional dancing which I love and a band that kept the guests on their toes.

Thank you Leandra and Alex as well as your families for welcoming me into your homes and allowing me to share this special day with you. I wish you all the love and happiness for the future and hope there will be a big move happening very soon 😉
