Weddings:

Carla & Tonie :: De Oudekraal, Caledon

28th March, 2013

I loved everything about Carla & Tonie’s wedding, Oh yes we did. Besides the fact that they are incredibly warm, utterly in love and drop dead gorgeous, it took place in the middle of nowhere on a farm. And you all know what a sucker I am for farm weddings. Wedding on a farm? Oh yes, sign me up already. This one was at De Oudekraal, a new wedding venue 20km out of Caledon. The best.

Throw in hundreds on Eucalyptus trees, Canola “stoppels”, a beautiful sky, a reception set inbetween trees, the band, Bottomless Coffee (who I love!), the most awesome Bridal party and we have a winner!

It was windy though and Carla was in a state of mild panic the previous day over the weather. But we are always up for a challenge. We worked the wind and the beautiful overcast sky to our advantage. No matter how much we tried, we just couldn’t keep Tonie’s tie to stay straight or get Carla’s hair to tame. But I loved it, I think that suited their playful nature so well and the carefree surrounding landscape we had the honor in photographing.

We also took loads of Bridal party photographs, as I knew how much they meant to the couple. We had loads of extra time set aside.These guys were crazy, we had so much fun and they loved the camera, even the boys ;)

Carla & Tonie, you know how thankful I am. Thank you again so much for all your plattelandse hospitality, warmth and treating us as your guests – I will always remember your day and how much fun we had.

    Charlene jy het hierdie troue deur jou lens opgevang net soos dit was. ‘n Ongelooflike spontane bruidspaar, spontane vriende en familie wat saam met hulle gekuier het tot vroeg in die môre.

  11. What an incredible wedding. I positively love farms, so any event on a farm would be perfect in my book! This bride is GORGEOUS. I love her dress and am 100% smitten with her babies breath bouquet. So nice to meet you this morning. Congratulations on your feature on Confetti Day Dreams.
