For those of you that follow my Facebook page would know that I shot a wedding at the stunning Mongena Game Lodge in Gauteng recently. Well this is the post of the stunning wedding of Alwyn and Jackie.
A little bit of history. I met Jackie via Facebook a good couple of years ago when I was still doing guided fishing trips. Both Jackie and Alwyn is serious fishermen. I then did some photography work for Jackie and we finally met at a product launch in Cape Town. Recently the two of them started getting into photography and we started chatting again. Well from there she decided that I am the guy that would be shooting their wedding!
To say I was stoked was an understatement, to shoot a wedding on a big5 game reserve was a very refreshing change of scenery from the normal Wine Estate weddings us Cape Town Wedding Photographers are used to! These new locations sparks a different type of creativity in one again.
Anyway, as the high veld is known for its thunder storms, the Friday saw some clouds build up, but the Saturday was very cloudy with some spots of rain in-between, anyway, we had soft even light to work with the whole day. The catch was the wedding was outside in the bush LOL! There was no turning back and off we went in the game drive vehicles to the ceremony, raindrops and all!
The reception was held at the boathouse on the lake and it looked stunning! And keeping the fishing tradition going, the cake toppers was a bride and groom fishing LOL
A great number of drinks was had by all and the party really, REALLY rocked! For me to stay till half past 1 in the morning says one thing LOL
Okay so not to keep you guys any further from the images, here they are!
Please feel free to share this post with friends and family.
The album will be on Facebook soon.
