James & Christel – 18/07/2015 – Houw Hoek Inn

The day before James & Christel’s wedding, Cape Town’s winter weather was at its best. But I never stress about the weather. And their wedding day turned out to be amazing. Houw Hoek Inn is set between the most beautiful mountains close to Grabouw. Perfect for a cosy winter wedding.

Their story: They met in 2006 at church, and after that they remained close friends while Christel was working overseas. Christel says she has always admired the way James treats everyone with respect, and she knew that he would treat her with respect. Fast forward a few years, including 6 months of dating; James sent Christel on a treasure hunt – and at the end she found him on one knee ;) 

Stories like theirs inspire me; they waited and prayed a long time for each other – and to top it all off – their first kiss was at the altar :)
