Wedding of Ricardo & Cindy

It was such a pleasure to take photos of Ricardo & Cindy’s wedding!

Arnold and I felt privileged to be there, not only as photographers but to celebrate your beautiful wedding!

What a wonderful day it was! From the weather to the planning, everything went like clockwork and what can we say about the deep emotional speeches –

we couldn’t contain our emotions!

We want to wish you a life of true happiness and may God touch you with His hand in every aspect of your lives as you are led and guided by Him.

 

“There is no more lovely, friendly, and charming relationship, communion or company than a good marriage.”
– Martin Luther

Wedding – Sam & Mark

On the 20 August 2016, Sam and Mark were getting married. I felt honoured to be their photographer.  As I drove out to the reception venue (to take some photos of the decor), I felt excitement mounting;  it was a beautiful sunny winter’s day – a perfect day chosen for them to wed; not a breath of wind! On the drive out to Black Marlin I opened my window and breathed in the fresh sea air. The venue was done up in shades of gold, cream and a hint of pink – a dreamy setting for any bride.

Next, I headed off to the lovely cottage where Sam was getting ready with her bridesmaids. The cottage overlooks the sea and is just a stone’s throw away from the church.   There was a flurry of activity happening all around me – hairdos, make-up and the like were in full swing. Stylish cupcakes filled the kitchen table and glancing over, I saw another table laden with Proteas in different shades that looked like they had been dusted with pink fairy dust.

While all this was going on, my assistant went to meet the men and take a few photos of them preparing – they seemed far more chilled then Sam.

After Sam got dressed and ready, we took off for the church, where her bridegroom eagerly awaited his bride.  As I walked into the church, I was blown away by the beauty and simplicity of the little church on the hill. It just completed the picture.  It was lovely to see the two precious children being part of Sam and Mark’s special day.

Sam, I would like to say, I am sure your mom and dad are smiling down from heaven and wish you every happiness you so richly deserve.

May God grant you and Mark every blessing as you build your lives together and may He lead and guide you all your days!

CLINT AND DEE’S WEDDING

 

I felt deeply honoured and privileged to be chosen as Clint and Dee’s wedding photographer. It was a very special day, as many family members traveled far and wide to attend their special ceremony.  The day was heartwarming in every sense of the word, as the love Clint and Dee feel for one another, was visibly displayed for all to see. The close family bond between the family members  was also something truly beautiful to behold.  Every little detail was perfectly thought out and the wedding was held at a beautiful venue in Gordon’s Bay.

I wish you all the happiness in your forever life together, may God lead you every step of the way. An Irish blessing on your marriage:

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Sonja and Riaan

It was my absolute pleasure and delight to be the official photographer for Sonja and Riaan at their wedding. From the moment Sonja and I met, I felt an instant connection with her and we chatted like we had known each other forever. I was very nervous, knowing that it would be my very first wedding photo shoot, but working with Sonja was so wonderful – Sonja exudes such peace and contentment. When I heard the wedding was a late morning beach wedding, it scared me a little. It is a known fact, that a wedding on the beach, this time of day (regarding lighting), is a challenge. It was a picture perfect day for the loving couple. Watching the day unfold was special, especially witnessing the strong family bond. Not only were Sonja and Riaan getting married, but they made the decision to have their little beauty, Janri christened. After the ceremony, the family and friends made their way to Noordhoek, where they gathered for the reception. The setting was homely, yet as we drove up the long driveway, I couldn’t help but feel we were part of a magical fairy tale. The princess had found her prince and a lovely enchanted garden with horses and chickens completed the picture. I want to wish Riaan and Sonja many blessings for their life together. Thank you once again for the amazing opportunity.
