Martin & Susari’s beautiful wedding was held on the 27th of April 2013 at Uitsig Venue, George.
M.J. & Rosemarie’s fairytale wedding in the magical Klein Karoo was held at Surval Boutique Olive Estate in Oudtshoorn on the 16th of March 2013 and was officiated by Ds Johan Lessing. Rosemarie, a media planner from Pretoria, met M.J., a farmer from Grootvlei in the Parys district (where they both live now), on university campus during their student days.
Rosemarie’s hair was styled by Helen from Clip ‘n Snip whilst Michelle from Placecol took care of her make-up. Her dress is from The Wedding Box and jewellery gifts from her parents. Rosemarie’s grandmother, Ouma Bellie, travelled all the way from Namibia and lovingly made her garter. M.J’s suit is from Florida Mansuitrusters. He had his amazing pocket watch, which he received as a gift from Rosemarie, close to his heart.
Their wedding cake came from Le Delice at Tramonto. The bouquets & corsages were made by Marina at Jasmyn Bloemiste whilst the rest of the flower arrangements were beautifully done by friends & family. Henlu & Karen Cronje captured their beautiful day on digital video and was an absolute pleasure to work with. Lukas Crause, M.J.’s brother in law, was a superb MC.
Prior to my return home, following Ryno & Angela’s wedding, I met up with Nico & Anita at the quaint Komatiland Forest picnic site near Kaapsche Hoop. We decided on a picnic/fishing themed shoot as they both share a love for fishing and often spend weekends at the dam. This was so much fun – despite the extreme heat, shooting at mid-day!
I’ll be back in the Lowveld during September to photograph their wedding in Nelspruit – exciting!!
Ryno & Angela got married on the 24th of January 2013 at the magical little Kaapsche Hoop in Mpumalanga, well known for its wild horses. This is a place that holds many precious memories for them and was the perfect location to start their new adventure together. Their wedding was held at Silver Mist, with their intimate ceremony officiated by Rev. Willie Swart. Ryno is in the “working at height” industry and Angela in the IT industry. They are both devoted mountain bikers and Ryno also a serious trail runner and adventure racer.
Angela’s hair was styled at Visible Hair in Nelspruit whilst her make-up was done by Tranquil Beauty at the venue. Her dress is from Brides Only in Pretoria and Ryno’s suit from EuroSuit in Nelspruit. The delicious cupcakes were made by Helen’s Cake Craft and their flowers supplied by Flower Market. The talented Anneke Coetzer added a classy element to the tranquil atmosphere with her violin.
Ryno & Angela, thank you ever so much for everything!! You are super awesome people!! It was an absolute honour to share and capture your special memories in such beautiful surroundings. Stef
M.J. & Rosemarie’s wedding will be held at the magnificent Surval Boutique Olive Estate in Oudtshoorn in March. This was also where we met to discuss their wedding photos. After a walk through the venue and a lovely cup of coffee, we headed out to the le Roux’s beautiful family farm for their “cowboy” themed pre-wedding shoot.
The Klein Karoo is such a magical place!! It will be the first wedding that I photograph here and it’s going to be very-very special to share it with such wonderful people!!
What a way to start the New Year! I met up with the energetic Mias & Csilla at Victoria Bay just after 06h00 but soon realised that the 1st of January is not the best date to do a photo shoot at this very popular beach. We opted for a quieter setting at the Wilderness Beach where we did some cool “surfer girl” shots with Csilla, an avid surfer. After breakfast at the Beejuice Café in Wilderness, we spent some time around town before heading out to Sedgefield where Mias worked as a tandem pilot for Cloudbase Paragliding over the festive season. I must also mention Juno, Csilla’s well behaved four legged friend, who accompanied us the whole day – such a cute little dog!!
Mias & Csilla are getting married at Eagles Nest, Sedgefield in March. Can’t wait!!
It was finally time for me to meet Ryno & Angela after many months of e-mails back and forth. I was so excited that I actually arrived an hour early and had to keep busy photographing some farmyard chickens – the location for our meeting and their pre-wedding photo shoot was the beautiful and much loved Irene Dairy Farm in Centurion, nestled between Pretoria and Johannesburg.
Ryno & Angela are getting married in January at Kaapschehoop near Nelspruit, their very special place. I’ll tell you more about them then…
