Soft rain is drumming gently on the windows today here Elgin and I confess that I’m still in my pyjamas… What I wouldn’t give for a steaming mug of this chocolately elixir right in front of me at this moment! Find the Food Fox’s wonderfully heady recipe here on our weekly column for the Pretty Blog. Good things…

So it’s the end of the wedding year and there’s some breathing space to reflect on everything that has passed this last twelve months – wow!!

I adore collating some of my favourite moments from the year’s wonderful weddings and each year I take some time to highlight some of my favourite    black and white images altogether. I hope you enjoy these photos…

My husband is the most amazing cook and his black onion seed and yoghurt naans are something of a legend around here! Soft, fragrant and brushed with melted butter… One day I may convince him to part with the recipe but until then we have this scrumptious version from the Food Fox to keep you going :-D And it’s fantastic!! She’s paired it with a spicy dhal and fresh coriander – yumms!! Find her super recipe here on our weekly food column for the wonderful Pretty Blog.

It’s been an honour and a joy to have photographed this awesome couple through their engagement shoot, wedding, maternity session and now their first born babs on camera! I love catching up with them when we meet up for shoots and was so delighted to finally meet their sweet little Caitlyn. What a cute little squirrel she is!!!

These two… OOOPH, it hits you straight in the chest! SO much love between this special pair… I just could not have asked for a better wedding to end this season. What an amazing day – or even better put – what a personal day! They crafted every detail themselves and chose to celebrate their own family beginning with a handful of their special people on the shore of the West Coast in the seaside town of Yzerfontein. Intimate and perfect… I am so grateful, Taryn and Alastair, that you chose me to witness and capture these memories – THANK YOU!!! I hope you adore the photos and the memories of this phenomenal day… A bride in fluffy slippers is a bride after my own heart ;-) Thank you two for being so lovely!! It means a lot :-) Assisted by the lovely Tanith Muller Photography with incredible make-up by the talented Yolande du Toit and beautiful flowers & furniture by N Concepts & Design.

With newborn shoots you’re mostly hoping baba will be relaxed and snoozy enough to let you get the shots you need – Harper took our wish to the extreme and no matter what we did she stayed cosy and sleeping the entire shoot :-D That’s one happy angel!! Another little one for this special family :-)

Since my lovely friend Ilse, the Food Fox, introduced me to the Italian method of making meringue topping for lemon meringue pie I feel like the clouds have parted and sweet angels are singing ;-) I’ve battled long and hard to make a non-weeping meringue topping for this awesome pud and never really managed to get it 100%! So this simple and incredibly silky but stable solution is the biz – trust me on this one!! Find her super recipe here on our weekly food column for the wonderful Pretty Blog.

So many sweet pics of this gorgeous girlie and her mum and dad from our shoot last week! Love love love the calm winter colours, grey reeds and water reflections. Here’s a little sneak peek :-)

Taryn and Ivan are waiting for their little one to make an appearance now! To mark the occasion we went to one of their favourite spots along the coast to take a few pics of the lovely bump and the delighted parents-to-be :-D What pretty light the Scarborough seaside gave us!

Almost time, you lovely two!!

Jaclyn, Andrew and I were all holding thumbs for weeks that we’d get a rain-free May day for their beautiful Cape Point Vineyards wedding! Well the wishes paid off but we forgot to wish for no wind ;-) That’s a hard wish to grant in Noordhoek to be fair and even through the gusts Jacs was ‘smiles for miles’ the entire day. What wonderful partners these two are – a true ‘meant to be’ pairing!! Jacs and Andrew, I hope this was a day to cherish for you both! You and your lovely families were a joy to photograph and made us feel so welcome. xxx Assisted by the wonderful Illyan Cloete.
