Isabelle + Jason | Avianto

When I met with Isabelle last year (she was out here from the UK), I knew that this was going to be a wonderful wedding…how could it not be??? She is delightful, sweet and gentle, just downright nice…and throughout our correspondence the last few months, I have just come to like her more and more 🙂 In her emails, you could tell she was so excited and happy to be marrying Jason. And the feeling was definitely mutual – a few days before the wedding, I received the loveliest email from Jason (I hope they don’t mind me sharing it with you) :

“We haven’t met yet but as the butterflies start waking up deep in my belly I wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you for your email this morning to Bella and for making her so happy! I can’t wait to meet you. It is going to be a great day to be alive!” … sigh… who wouldn’t want to marry him?!

So, needless to say, by the time the wedding day arrived, I was so excited to finally get to see this special couple together.

What a wedding it was! They made sure it was personal to them, adding little touches from handmade programs to Jason dancing down the isle with his best men and opening up the dance floor with a very fast swing number. It was them. totally. and uniquely. There were some tears during the ceremony (well, a lot of tears actually), McDonalds cups (yes indeed), laughter and above all, a very personal message. And then they were finally married!

Off we went in search of some photo spots…attempting to drive in 4×4 territory without a 4×4…and found this gorgeous piece of veld next to a lake. Only problem is that the gate is locked and we can’t get to it…well, let me just say – Isabelle, you rock!!! Up and over a fence with a lacy wedding dress is a manoeuvre most brides should definitely practise 😉 Thank you for giving us loads of time and being such huge sports!!

Belle and Jase, you were wonderful and I thank you for trusting me with your precious memories. I know that you will be happy, your connection and sense of fun will carry you through anything!
