Johan & Nadia :: Florence Guest Farm

2nd December, 2014

 

 

Nadia shined all day. Like a chandelier casting magical light patterns on the surroundings. Johan cried a lot. There were many unstoppable tears, even from the photography team. Joy was everywhere. It came in tears and settled in laughter. Before I get carried away, I’ll let the images do the talking. They say more what I can translate into words.

Huge hug and thank you my friend and best photographer in the North, Laura for helping, chauffeur-ing, shooting and just your general awesomeness. Check out the husband and wife team’s (Jack & Jane) incredible work here. They rock.

Thank you to Nadia, Johan and family for looking after us so well. We enjoyed all of you so much. And t0 Nico & Ané from Florence Guest Farm for being accommodating with our requests – thank you.

Cate & Benn :: Vrede en Lust

31st July, 2014

 

Brace yourself for a story that fairytales and in todays’s age RomComs are made of. It started off with Cate saying hello to Benn at a beach bar in Boracay, Philippines. From that moment it developed in a whirlwind romance, a full year of long distances calls, moving to Hong Kong and later on embarking on a 15 month around the world backpacking trip. Few years later, precious Ria was conceived in Kenya on Valentines Day  which all led to this day. The most lovely April day surrounded with friends and family visiting from all around the world to celebrate the wedding of Cate & Benn at Vrede en Lust Wine Farm Estate.

I loved being part of this joyous occasion -  documenting the magic, the laughs and also the happy tears. Besides the crazy moves on the dancefloor, Benn, your speech was legend! The longest but the best I have yet experienced. Cate, Benn & little Ria, you guys are too adorable. Wishing you endless giggles, ”vrede” and happiness in your future together.

Lucia & Nico :: Babylonstoren

18th July, 2014

 

Lucia & Nico tied the knot at Babylonstoren Farm. A magical piece of paradise where many Capetownians escape the city blues in turn for some plain goodness. Although it was a wet rainy wintersday, the heavens closed the taps five minutes before emotional Lucia walked down the aisle to marry her special person, Nico.

Babylonstoren is loved for their organic Farm to table wholesome food, and on this particular day lake to table included. Gundula, Babylonstoren’s talented and delightful Gardener went on a early morning lake expedition to find waterblommetjies which formed part of the table decor, while Liesl, the coordinator made sure all is running smoothly.  I’ll never see waterblommetjies in the same light again – they looked sexy amongst the tulips, blossoms and veggies.

Thanks Lucia and Nico for being part of your milestone. Wishing you years of happiness  in your future together. May it be filled with goodness and “vet pret”.
Love, Charlene
