Myriam and Joe

So happy to be able to blog these lovely photos of Myriam and Joe’s wedding. They said their vows on the stunning beach at Strandkombuis on the West Coast just a few months back.

I loved how relaxed Myriam was during the planning and I also loved her super relaxed ideas. The decor fitted in with the venue perfectly. Leipzig did a great job with the decor and flowers and it looked really beautiful on the day.

If you are ever travelling up the West Coast, then do yourself a favour and pop into Strandkombuis for lunch. They have the best home made fresh food. Their options for weddings are really awesome and I love how different it is from the usual buffet menu. If I could just get their recipe for their bread, I would be one happy lady.

DuWayne did a great job with the photos and even the super strong wind didn’t put him off from walking along the beach and snapping away.
DJ Rene and his team really know how to get a party started and the guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves on the dance floor that night.

Myriam and Joe – I wish you all the love and happiness in the world.
Thank you for allowing me to help plan such a special day.

Sam & David’s Engagement Shoot

I love being able to blog the engagement shoots that my couples have. I don’t always get a copy of them so I was super excited to receive these photos. Abigail K has graciously allowed me to blog Sam and David’s sunrise engagement shoot!

Sam and David live in Abu Dhabi and they will be saying their vows at the stunning Hidden Valley Wine Estate in Stellenbosch later this year. Sam is full of wonderful wedding ideas and I am really looking forward to seeing this day come together.

They threw in some great travel ideas for this shoot, as David is a pilot and flies to all the wonderful places this world has to offer.

I am secretly very envious of Sam when she posts her photos on facebook and I notice that she is not sitting in Economy class, but in Business class! #iwillflybusinessclassoneday

Yay for legendary couples and their awesome photographers who capture such amazing photos! Looking forward to November!

Jess and Dean say “I Do”

Jess and Dean were married in March of this year and I am super excited to be able to share these photos with you. They decided on the Granger Bay Hotel School to exchange their vows as well as have their reception. The girls got ready at Jess and Dean’s home in Camps Bay and had loads of fun posing for the photographers.

The venue is really great for small intimate weddings. The helipad was perfect for the type of ceremony they wanted to have. This ceremony was slightly different, they mixed their Jewish and Buddhist cultures into one. It was so refreshing to watch and I loved how the two families came together for this special occasion.

Once everyone had found a seat, the food was served and the speeches began. Dean made the loveliest speech to his new bride and had pretty much most of the guests in tears.

Once the formalities were over, the dancing started.
This crowd definitely knows how to party! Dean also had a special surprise for Jess. He had proposed to Jess in Thailand surrounded by fire dancers, so we organised 3 amazing fire dancers to preform a special act especially for Jess. It really was an incredible thing to see.

ShenFM performed on stage during the night. Really such a talented guy and the crowd loves his voice. He can do pretty much anything when it comes to music, so do yourself a favour and check out his work.
Fern and Tim from Fern Tree Photography produced some stunning photos of this special day. The weather was not playing along unfortunately, so they took the couple out the next day for a lovely couple shoot and they got some really great shots!
Stretch Inc really came through for this wedding. They supplied us with not only the tents, dance floor, stage, tables and chairs, but they supplied a fabulous DJ on top of all of that! I love working with companies that go over and above for my couples.
As you can see by the photos below, Fox and Co did a wonderful job as per usual with the decor and flowers. The venue looked so amazing once it was complete!

Thank you to everyone that helped make this day a success.

To Jess and Dean, I wish you love, light and happiness in your future together. May the love you shared on your special day continue throughout your lives.
