Louise-Mari and Louw tied the knot in her front garden where she grew up on their Malherbe family farm just outside of Robertson. Afterwards a tractor transported all the guests to a hill that overlooked the farm with a gorgeous view. One of their friends treated the spectators with an airshow, which was definitely a highlight. The couple built and laid their own cement dance floor, painted with grey and white stripes that tied in so perfectly with the decor. I loved this line out of Louise-Mari’s speech “Julle sal dans vanaand!” – which brings me to the most hilarious speech I have ever heard. Louise-Mari had everyone in stitches and one that I will probably never forget. That saying “dynamite comes in small packages” rings especially true here. A small lady with a BIG personality. Louw is a gentle soul, a farmer, salt of the earth kinda guy and couldn’t take his eyes of his bride.
Marli Basson (who I love working with) took care of her cousin’s make-up and it was so touching to witness both Marli and Louise-Mari eyes well up with tears when she did the final magic touches. Family & friends came together and contributed with so many aspects that resulted in a true celebration of everyone special and dear to them.
Thank you Louise-Mari and Louw for choosing me to document your magic. May you be blessed in your new life in Piketberg as husband and wife.
