Megan and Justin’s beautiful wedding day

I love being able to blog the photos of the lovely weddings that I get to plan. Megan and Justin were married a few months back, I am so pleased that they allowed me to blog some of their stunning photos from Gavin Casey Photography.

Megan and Justin live in the UK, so as many of my overseas clients know, planning a wedding from abroad can be a very daunting task. I met Megan while she was in SA at her parents gorgeous bed and breakfast establishment in Simons Town. We chatted all things wedding and once she was back in the UK, we started the planning.

Megan and Justin had very specific ideas when it came to the type of venue they wanted, as well as the type of decor, feel and look. They really wanted their guests to feel welcomed and looked after. I loved what Botanica did with the flowers. It was simple, yet elegant. The fairy lights really added to the evening and once the candles were lit, they reflected beautifully against all of the glass vases.

Goedgedacht was the chosen venue for their wedding. The ceremony was held in their chapel on the hill, the cocktail hour out on their lawns and the reception was held in the their hall. Every section was decorated beautifully. The story behind the venue is a lovely one, so pop over to their website for more information on what they do.

The sun set beautifully that evening and the party started soon after that.
The guests all had a wonderful time and I thoroughly enjoyed seeing Megan and Justin have such a great time with their friends and family.

To the happy newlyweds, thank you for allowing me to be apart of such a special day. I wish you all the love and happiness in the world.

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!
