West Coast Wedding – Veldrif Wedding – Adrian & Marlene

This was one of the weddings that I was looking forward to the most so far this year. Adrian and Marlene had their Veldrif Wedding in the small fishing village on the West Coast of South Africa. I have not been to Veldrift in many years and it was actually awesome to be there. There is some amazing places in and around that little town. It is probably best known for the small street called Bokkomlaan, that is situated on the banks of the Berg River estuary and you can see all the fishermen and the old jetties and the little fishing boats. The birdlife is simply amazing with huge flocks of flamingos wading in the shallows all over the place. But enough of that. I know Marlene from school, as her brother, Attie, was with me in the class and we were good friends. But like most people, you lose touch with your old school friends after school and this was the first time in nearly 10 years that I have seen them again. So we caught up on loads of stuff. What an awesome wedding, Adrian and Marlene were super rockstars the whole day, even thou Adrian forgot his wedding shoes at home and a friend had to drive all the way back to fetch them! We simply could not have asked for better weather, being a winters wedding, there is always the chance of a torrential downpour, but not that weekend, it was stunning days, cold but clear and vibrant, not to mention the picture perfect sunsets. Thanks for having me Adrian and Marlene, it was an awesome wedding, one to remember for sure!

Proposal Shoot – Jaco & Martin

This was only my second Proposal shoot and it was very special! Jaco contacted me a while ago about doing a couple shoot for him and Martin. He then mentioned that it was his intention to pop the big question during the shoot. This got me excited. I just LOVE these special moments I get to share with my clients. Jaco said that I should choose the spot and the moment and he will get down on his knee and pop the question. I found the perfect spot where I could stand back and be out of earshot so they could have this special moment for themselves. I kept firing away and as soon as the question was popped and the ring was on the finger I came in close. Even I had a big lump in my throat! The rest of the shoot was just as awesome, but lets not keep you waiting, go and check it out! Thanks again to Charmaine from Die Eike Guesthouse and Wedding venue for opening your doors for us and this special shoot.

Robertson Wedding – Bon Cap Wedding – Luan & Jeanre

This was another winters wedding, the second one in a row for me. This stunning Robertson wedding was held at the awesome Bon Cap Guest Farm and wedding venue just outside Robertson. Jeanre and Luan booked me nearly a year ago and by the time of the wedding they have been together just shy of 8 years! So it was about time. One thing that amazed me, and I don't see this at weddings to often, is that Luan must have said about 500 times during the afternoon and where I could hear, how beautiful Jeanre was! Like I said, you don't often hear this at other weddings, so that was quite special for me. But look, he did not really have a choice other than to say that as Jeanre looked spectacular! Her long hair was left loose with minimal styling and it really looked amazing. I personally think that more brides should have their hair loose on their wedding days. Michelle and her team from Bon Cap did an amazing job once again with the decor and the food! Well, enough of this now, lets look at some awesome images!
