Kim and Riaan were married in February in Durbanville. They were blessed with the most amazing day, no wind, gorgeous cloudy skies and gorgeously warm. They have come along way together so their special day was the culmination of many years and some hard times. It was so special to see them come together and finally be husband and wife.
The 2019 Pantone Colour of the Year is Living Coral, what a pretty colour it is! One of my favorite Hair and Make-Up artists, Suzanne, asked me to be involved in a shoot showcasing this colour and I jumped at the chance. We picked Gordon’s Bay beach as our location and on the day the wind was howling. It made shooting a little more tricky but I just love the way the wind created movement in the gorgeous tulle of the dress, it was all just magical! I can’t wait to see the use of this colour in weddings in the coming year!
Genevieve and David were married in Elgin in December. One of my favourite places and one of my favorite months, I knew it was going to be a goodie!
When Gisele and Grant booked me for their wedding at De Uijlenes just outside Stanford, I was so excited as this is a venue I had been dying to shoot at. They told me they chose it so they could have a full weekend of celebrations with their friends and family. Grant’s birthday fell over the same weekend so they had two very special occasions to celebrate!
Siophan and Shane chose to get married in the middle of winter and were blessed with a day more gorgeous than most summer days! It was warm and clear with not a breathe of wind, just perfect! But the weather wasn’t the only perfect thing, Siophan was elegant and classic, Shane was dapper and suave and their hearts filled with love and excitement. It was one of those weddings I smile through from start to finish.
I had the great pleasure of being part of Roche and Gareth’s wedding day, it was just so full of joy and laughter. I met the couple prior to their wedding day where I learnt that Gareth works out of the country so they don’t see as much of each other as they would like. I really do take my hat off to them as I can’t imagine how difficult that must be.
I met Kate and Rikus just over a year before their wedding, Kate contacted me for an engagement shoot and they brought their adorable doggies along! I loved spending the afternoon with them so when Kate asked me to shoot their wedding, I was so excited.
I have known Heidi for the longest time, we danced together many years ago and she was one of my first guinea pigs when I started playing around with a camera. So I was super excited and honored when she got in touch with me from the U.K., where she now lives, to be a part of their special day.
I am not really sure where to begin with this wedding! There is so much that I want to convey but I am not sure how to put it into words.
Yolande and Raymond were married on a lovely warm day in March. It was an intimate wedding that they had been planning for some time. So when the day arrived there was much excitement and happiness.
