Sarah and Darren...their love story captured in Cape Town!

Love at first sight

Darren and Sarah met several years ago in Cape Town, and according to Darren's friends, the same night he met her, he told his friends that he had met his future wife!! Quite a few years later, and here you are, reading this blog post and looking at their wedding photos!

You will all agree with me that Sarah was a most beautiful bride, and when walking down the aisle, Darren was moved to tears and was certainly not afraid to let all of his emotions come pouring out!! Theirs is a beautiful love story, and is evident in their photos!

Venue: Kelvin Grove Private Club

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!

Married in Austria......photos done in Cape Town on their honeymoon!

Married in Austria......photos done in Cape Town on their honeymoon!

The fact that I met Laura and Ivan was really down to an amazing coincidence!!

They got married in Austria during the summer and as time and careers permitted, they decided to take their honeymoon in Cape Town during early November!! This is clearly when the stars were already aligning our meeting, because as luck would have it, I was also planning on going back to Cape Town during November!! So you have on the one hand, a young Austrian couple planning their honeymoon in Cape Town, naturally flying from Vienna on Emirates airline, and yours truely, planning a trip home, from Frannkfurt to Cape Town, also on Emirates, via Dubai!!

The next amazing alignment of the stars making sure that we met, was that they happened to sit in front of me on the flight from Dubai down to Cape Town!! Emirates being the good, service orientated airline that they are, delivered a honeymoon cake to the young couple which of course immediately got my attention and so I gave them my card, after telling them that I am a wedding photographer and the rest as we say, is history!! 

We met up a few days later in Cape Town, Laura wearing her beautiful wedding dress, Ivan in dress clothes, but sadly he forgot to pack fancy shoes, but hey, no problem when you are doing a shoot mostly at the beach, then surely barefoot is the way to go!!

Laura and Ivan, I so enjoyed meeting the two of you, photographing the two of you and then joining you for breakfast after our shoot!! I hope that the rest of your honeymoon was awesome and that you had a good safe flight back to Austria!

Enjoy your photos!

xoxo

Tamzyn and Dewald

During a trip home to Cape Town in November, I had the opportunity to photograph Tamzyn and Dewald's engagement shoot!! All of this was organised while i was here in Germany, and thus this was the first time that we met, but sometimes there are just people who you click with, and within a few minutes, we were laughing, chatting as if we had met years ago!! 

Tamzyn and Dewald met a couple of years back through mutual friends, but at the time, Tamzyn was not free, so Dewald waited patiently until his future wife was free, and the  rest as they say, "is history!"

Tamzyn and Dewald, it was such a privilege to meet you both and to work with you!!

I am super excited to photograph your wedding in February 2017!!

Enjoy your photos!

xoxo
