A sunset gives you beautiful golden light, but we tend to forget the lovely pink shades sunrise brings. During summer in Cape Town, the sun rises around 5/5:30am. I am so happy that Drikus and Charné were willing to get up so early. It was so worth it :)
Drikus en Charné, julle twee is pragtig!
They met on a twitter blanket drive in 2011, but they only got to know each other a bit later in the year. Leigh knew from the start that Morné was the one for her. Morné is an avid sportsman and has completed the Comrades and Ironman.
Their wedding day was modern and chic with touches or purple and lilac. Bakenhof completed their dream wedding.
Leigh’s advice to brides-to-be:
*Buy the book – The Irreverent A-Z wedding guide it was super useful and hilarious!
*Involve your groom in decision making.

“Jy is belowe, Jy is my belofte
En nou staan jy langs my
En soos ek na jou kyk, skyn jy soos die son
Jou hart verlig ons pad, en die donker kan maar kom
Soos die sande van die see, is my liefde hier vir jou
En hier op Lambertsbaai, beloof ek trou aan jou
En dat ek joune is.”
Daardie is die pragtige woorde van ‘n liedjie wat Danel vir Clinton geskryf het. Hulle troue by Grootvlei (Oppiduin), was vir my ongelooflik mooi; al was dit ‘n mistige dag op Lambertsbaai, was die koelte eintlik ‘n blessing. Hulle het al hulle dekor self gedoen, met die hulp van familie en vriende.

Clinton & Danel; julle is nou een in God.
Willie & Danielle wanted to do something different for their engagement session. So they asked their bridesmaids and groomsmen to come along. Looking forward to their wedding next week! :)
Shaun and Ruzél suit eachother perfectly; they are both very calm with such sweet personalities. We had a fun mornig at the Botanical Gardens in Stellenbosch.
Niell & Leann have been working together for 5 years. They have always been close friends, but realised soon enough that there was more to their relationship. Their wedding day was perfect; Leann looked beautiful in her Elizabeth Stockenstrom dress and they even had a barista at their reception.
There are so many pretty moments I wanted to share, so I decided to create a gallery. Have a look at their wedding gallery on my Google+ page here.

It is always a privilege to photograph a friend’s wedding, but this one was extra special.
Dit was vir my so lekker gewees om weer vir Jaco en Juandri af te neem. Ek het hulle maternity shoot ook gedoen, maar nou is Niklaus al omtrent groot :)
Matric Farewell’s have become such a big occasion at schools, and it is the highlight of the year for Gr 12’s. Tahlea contacted me to take photos of her and her friends, for their separate matric dances(there were a few in Cape Town this specific evening). I really had so much fun and they all looked gorgeous!
It was a lovely morning on Llandudno beach for Nikki’s maternity shoot. Their boy, Adam, will arrive soon and I just know that he will bring buckets full of joy and love for his mommy and daddy :)
