Cate & Benn :: Vrede en Lust


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.
