Tracy and Jacques

Tracy and Jacques were married at Bontevlei close to Stellenbosch on a gorgeous December day. They are from Cape Town, now living in Johannesburg, and decided to have their celebration in their home town.

I met them a few months ago for their engagement shoot while they were in Cape Town for the weekend. They were both shy and quiet but photographed beautifully. Tracy was a classically beautiful bride and Jacques handsome in his blue suite. I love how grooms are no longer just wearing black or grey. Tracy was calm when I arrived at Soverby’s were she was getting ready. She was full of smiles and taking selfies with her bridesmaids!

The ceremony was held outside in the gardens on a perfect weather day. It was so lovely, so sincere and relevant to both of them. The way they looked at each other during the ceremony was so special.

Their couples shoot was so easy for me, they are both so great in front of a camera and their real love for one another is so obvious. All the loving looks and adoring smiles came so naturally to them, it was so amazing to see.

The evening was spent celebrating with laughter and dancing. And for the first time I got to witness a groom MC his own wedding! Well done Jacques! He did an amazing job, putting his really great sense of humour to good use!!

Thank you to two special and genuine people for having me capture this day for you. I wish you lots of love and happiness during all your days together.
