Mari & Francois :: De Oewer, Stellenbosch

There are way too many reasons why I LOVED shooting Mari & Francois’s wedding. To name but a few :: Both Mari & Francois are artists in their own right. Mari is a fashion designer and recently started her own fashion label, Black Dahlia. She has also made her own wedding dress! RESPECT.

Francois plays in the band Autumn of August, hence using the guitar in our creative couple shoot. They entirely rocked the Photo shoot. I have a slight feeling that Francois had lots of practice in the past posing for band photography. They got married under a huge Oak tree at De Oewer in Stellenbosch, where they also danced the night away beneath the warm summer sky.

Mari and Francois, thank you so much for trusting me to capture your memories. You made it too easy. Wishing you continued happiness, creativity and love. x

    Just had to comment. Charlene – these are absolutely lovely. Even more so because they are so different to the usual formula that most togs in Cape Town seem to follow. Well done.
