Johan & Heléne – 08/04/2016 – Eensgezind

Johan & Heléne het ‘n pragtige plaastroue gehad by Eensgezind. Hulle ken mekaar al van kleins af, maar hulle paaie het eers weer jare later gekruis.

Hulle verlowings storie: “Ons is Durban toe vir ‘n kort vakansie, maar eintlik om Johan se Oom & Tannie van Centurion te gaan ondersteun by die Comrades Maraton.  Ons 2 was ‘n dag vroeër as sy tannie en oom al daar.  Johan het gereël dat sy Oom en Tannie tesame met hulle “landlord” ‘n romantiese tafel opmaak in hulle huisie met ‘n see uitsig.  Ons het gaan uiteet en met die terugkom by die huisie was ek ‘uitgebowl’.  Was baie romanties en spesiaal.”

Dit was so lekker gewees om hulle troue af te neem, en ek is baie bly dat ek kon deel wees van hierdie spesiale dag.

James & Chenelle – Wolfkloof

From the moment I arrived at Wolfkloof to photograph this incredible wedding, I fell inlove with the beautiful decor. I mean who doesn’t want to eat with gold cutlery?😉 The rest of the wedding day was absolutely gorgeous and so much fun to be a part of. James made sure everyone was having a good time in front of the camera, and Chenelle was just adoring her husband.

Chenelle’s favourite part of planning the wedding: ‘Driving around with James trying to find a wedding venue. Usually ended up being more of a wine tasting trip than a wedding venue hunting trip. It was so much fun!’

Conrad & Mareli – 26/03/2016 – Habonim, Onrus

This was by far one of the prettiest DIY Boho weddings I have photographed. Conrad & Mareli worked together with friends and family to create a truly amazing wedding day at Habonim in Onrus. This was a true Bohemian Music Festival.

How Conrad proposed: “We were on holiday in Turkey with friends, we spend the day on the beach in Olympos and Conrad wanted to see the view from the hill, we spent a few minutes up the hill admiring the beautiful view, when he told our friends that he just wants to take a photo, we will meet them down below. I thought something was up, but when he reached for his pocket and took out his phone, I thought that I was just being silly, he told me to grab my things and when I turned around he was on one knee and asked me to marry him.”

They are two creative souls; Mareli is the owner of Troufees, and Conrad the owner of Silkscreen Company.

Feast your eyes on this beautiful wedding.

Gunther & Nicola – 19/03/2016 – Waldorf

Classic, elegant and hopelessly romantic – the words that describe Gunther & Nicola’s wedding.

I just love how Gunther proposed to Nicola: “Gunther booked a weekend away at Platbos Log Cabins in the Slanghoek Valley near Rawsonville. He cooked & set up a romantic dinner for two on the deck over-looking the lake. The deck was decorated with fairy lights and on the table, candles and champagne. When it came to desert time, he surprised me with the ring wedged in the Malva pudding and went down on one knee and proposed to me.”

They chose to get married at the Waldorf School in Stellenbosch – it is a beautiful setting for intimate weddings.

A few tips from the bride:

-Keep a file with all your receipts, emails, quotes and follow up every discussion with service providers EVERYTHING in writing.

-Delegate to friends and family who want to help.

 -Do not compromise on your photographer. Get the best you can afford!

Jaco & Xaviera – 05/03/2016 – Kronenburg

Hulle het ontmoet by ‘n dans op Loeriesfontein, en verloof geraak by die Zuurberge nadat hulle op ‘n olifantrit gegaan het. Xaviera sê sy het van die begin af geweet hy is die een; met sy blou oë en blonde hare.

Daar was behoorlik fees gevier by Kronenburg; hulle het tot die fantastiese duo; Bottomless Coffee Band gekry om vir hulle gaste op te tree.

As ek dink aan Jaco en Xaviera se troue, kom daar 3 woorde by my op; sag, romanties en pret.

Jaco en Xaviera – Ek bid dat julle huwelik altyd pret sal wees:)
