Tamzyn and Dewald...capturing their love story in Cape Town

Cape Town summer wedding at Ashanti Wine Estate

A few months back you will have seen Tamzyn and Dewald's couple shoot photos on my blog and now, at the beginning of February, I was honoured to capture their wedding at gorgeous Ashanti Wine Estate, in Paarl, South Africa!

For those of you who know Cape Town, a wedding in February can only but bring gorgeous weather and in this department, Tamzyn and Dewald were truely blessed!! I recall that the temperature was in the region of around 37 degrees!!! 

Our day started by capturing the 2 getting ready at The Crystal Palace Hotel in Canal Walk, before we all made our way to Ashanti Wine Estate where the wedding ceremony would take place as well as the festivities afterwards! 

I was truely honoured to capture your wedding day and to bear witness to your love story, Tamzyn and Dewald!! I loved every minute of your day, from capturing you both getting ready, to witnessing you saying your vows, and to spending time with you both while we went off to do your couple photos!! We really had some fun there!

Thank you both for choosing me to be your wedding photographer!

Bride with a beautiful lace wedding dress

Love, emotions, romance, and fun, are some of the words which I can use to describe Maren and Michael's wedding! I simply loved this wedding, and of course, I loved shooting in the vineyards and who would have thought that doing a bridal shoot in a wheat field could be so stunning!

Have a look at these bridal portraits, and did I mention that I loved Maren's beautiful dress!! The fine lines, the delicate lace, all contributing to how stunning Maren looked!!

Beatrice and Peter

Wedding in Germany!

Beatrice and Peter asked me to photograph their wedding after having come to know me when I photographed Beatrice's daughter and her family a few years back!! She told me that after seeing her granddaughters photos, she decided there and then, when she and Peter set a date, she would definitely want me to photograph a wedding!! Of course you can imagine how happy I was to hear that!! Meeting Peter and Beatrice was a wonderful time because they were so excited to show me around their cottage which they had completely revamped, taking their time to source every minute detail which would be used to change what was initially a very old and very rundown cottage to what they now turned it into!! A beautiful, tastefully designed cottage with hidden nooks and crannies where one could relax and have a direct view to their gorgeous little garden, which would be the backdrop for their couple shoot on the day of the wedding!! Every little detail which you see in the background of the couple shoot photos, was a little gem found by Beatrice, even down to the old bicycle!!

Early summer wedding in Germany!

Gorgeous wedding televised on German TV

Can you imagine my excitement and surprise after sorting out the details for this gorgeous wedding, to hear that this wedding was actually going to be televised on German national television!!! Sina and Thorsten told me during out initial meeting that they had entered a competition in order to win their dream honeymoon and that I would have some competition jostling for the prime position in order to photograph them as there would be a tv crew at the wedding as well!!!

The day dawned and while stress levels were high, nails were being bitten, the moment when Sina actually arrived at the Church, all of the previous stress was forgotten as I can honestly say that Sina looked every inch a Princess walking up the aisle to meet her Prince! Her dress was simply stunning, and her Prince looked elegant!! 

I so enjoyed photographing this young couple, as one could literally feel, "that love was all around!"

Spring wedding

Spring wedding

I was really excited to hear that I was the lucky one chosen to photograph this wedding in the beautiful town of Heilbronn in Germany! Many years ago, i spent some time visiting this small town and so being given the opportunity to go back and to shoot a wedding there, was something I really looked forward to doing!!

Now close your eyes and imagine a spring wedding, with the loveliest of spring flowers, in varying shades of pink, a bride in a soft, romantic lace dress and a handsome groom, and this image, will be almost as lovely as the reality of Chrisi and Felix's wedding!! In addition to be being the lucky one chosen to photograph their wedding, I feel twice as fortunate as I got to photograph them christening their son as well!!
