Tammy-Kay + Morgan | Greenleaves Country Lodge wedding

Tammy-Kay and Morgan got married at Greenleaves on a winters day that turned out perfectly…not too cold and with beautiful autumn colours still cloaking the trees.

This couple is adorable 🙂 They laugh and giggle and have fun, they are sweet and loving … and you could see that the people that attended the wedding loved them so very much. There was lots of hugging and tears, and I loved the fact that Tammy’s dad and stepdad both walked her down the isle…it was very special.

Thank you both for waiting so long for your post…and for being so wonderful to Corinna and myself – we loved photographing your wedding!! xx

Janie + David – Birchwood wedding

When Janine and David booked me over a year ago, I made a note that this was a special wedding. I have done some images for her sister and have met the family a few times, so there was a lot to live up to 🙂 They are such lovely people, so warm and giving and all I wanted for the day was pretty light – we were in the middle of a town with buildings and main streets everywhere but I was determined to get her the veld images she loved. And sometimes a piece of open ground next to a church is all you need 🙂

Janine and David, thank you for trusting me – it was a beautiful day and so special to me…

Thank you to my friend, Henriette who second shot for me on the day.

Tracy + Richard – Randlords wedding

As you walk into the Cathedral, the light and colours strike you first…then the calm peacefulness of this beautiful space in the heart of Jozi overwhelms you. It really makes for a wedding ceremony with meaning. And it was the perfect setting for Tracy and Richard’s ceremony, creating a feeling of intimacy, even in the huge space. A choir, the amazing organ, all of it reminds you that there is more to a wedding than the decor, the politics, the planning.

It was a perfect Autumn day in Johannesburg as we rushed around the city centre in a little bus, looking for pretty light. I like to plan my couple shoots so that I know where we are going and to save time, but there is something to be said (besides the stress) for unplanned chaos 🙂 – it pushes you to really look and to try different things, technically and creatively. We ran out of light pretty quickly but we made the most of the time we had. We got chased away by security guards, several fingers got slammed into doors in the rush to get to that spot … but what fun!

The reception was held at Randlords, overlooking the city skyline – emotional speeches, a song dedication by the groom, a phenomenal 5 course menu…it all contributed to this beautiful wedding.

Tracy and Richard, may all the days of your married life be as wonderful as this first one.

Thank you to my friend Corinna for assisting me and being my always reliable back-up.

Rowena + Jhean – Shepstone Gardens Wedding

Shooting Rowena and Jhean’s wedding was like attending a family wedding – besides the fact that I photographed her sister’s wedding a few years ago and recognised a lot of the people there, it was the spirit of togetherness and welcome that made it so special. It’s a real honour to be part of a family’s history, to see their beautiful daughters get married, to meet the babies, and to experience their journey. There were so many special moments at this wedding – the giggling through the ceremony, the tears as she danced with her dad…just to name two that comes to mind.

Rowena and Jhean, thank you so very much for choosing me – it was such a special day! And Jhean, I hope the posing was worth it 😉

Helen + Anthony – Le Chatelat wedding

Last weekend was the wedding of Helen and Anthony – one of the most special weddings I have had the honour of documenting. Two beautiful people that love each other so much, they could barely contain it.

The day started out sunny and the coordinators set the tables outside on Le Chatelat’s balcony, overlooking the ceremony site. But as Helen was starting to make her way from the room, the heavens opened up. And it poured. People scrambled inside and everything needed to moved – organised chaos! 45 minute later, the ceremony took place in the lobby under beautiful candelabra…and it was just perfect. Anthony could not contain his tears as Helen walked towards him…and she could not contain hers during the vows. It was heavy with meaning and love and absolute happiness. Being there in those moments was an honour, it is what makes me love my job – what a special privilege to be able to capture that much joy.

Helen and Anthony, I wish you nothing but joy and happiness – you deserve nothing less xx

Anny + Michael – The Bridge Wedding

Anny and Michael tied the knot on a rainy, overcast day… things went wrong, things got misplaced – all of this added some hilarious moments to the day. And none of it bothered either of them 🙂 They laughed through it all and focused on the important things, the day they had waited so long for and spent a lot of time in airports for. It was beautiful and sincere, a real love story.

Thank you both for being such sports and braving the wet veld, climbing through fences and fending off rather large stick insects 😉

Emma + Brendan – Tartaruga Lodge Mozambique

A morning wedding on a quiet beach, family and friends that joined for a relaxed weekend, a lazy lunch after a dip in the ocean…now does that not sound perfect?

Emma and Brendan wanted an intimate wedding at their favourite spot in Mozambique .. and it was so very special. Clouds rolled over in the morning, then cleared into a hot, gorgeous day…they stood with their toes in the sand as the vows were exchanged and surrounded by all that beauty, they were married. Guests ran into the ocean straight after the ceremony to cool off, then relaxed at the pool whilst the seafood buffet was being prepared. No formalities, no rush, just time spent with those closest to them to celebrate their love.

Thank you both for letting me witness your wonderful celebration, it was an honour!

And I can now drive the 4×4 🙂 After navigating the deep, soft sand in Mozambique, I am ready to go forth and explore!
