Artful meringues, swirls of chocolate, dark jewels-like berries, soft folds of cream… There’s not much more to be said… Find the Food Fox’s super recipe here on our food column for the inspiring Pretty Blog.
I love engagement shoots for their relaxed nature and they often give me a little more scope to play around a bit with my editing style. During the shoot we chatted about the amazing Rocky Mountain woods vibe of our location so I thought I’d grade the colours with some soft autumny shades and really bring out the textures of the forest.
What a fantastic couple Ilna and Neil are and we had a lot of good laughs in between the moody photos! I can’t wait for their beautiful winter wedding – not so long now, it feels!
Beautiful hair and make-up from the talented and oh so lovely Ida Webster
These two (three!!) are absolutely radiant and I know they’re counting down the days until that special one in March when little baby Bhana makes a happy appearance! What an exciting time ahead and I’m SO delighted to have been able to capture these moments! This is such a special couple and they make the most gorgeous images with their passion for life and each other! I know their little babs is going to be much loved… Enjoy!!
For the last of these summer days this little green gem is a refreshing and delicious twist on the original and much loved gin and tonic. The Food Fox adds fresh squeezed cucumber juice with mint and basil leaves and lots of ice. Find her super recipe here on our food column for the wonderful Pretty Blog.
When you’re planning your beautiful January wedding at Jonkershuis, Groot Constantia you probably don’t hesitate for a moment to think about what if the day is dark and chilly with icy winds and not the sun drenched celebration you thought it would be. Janet and Adam’s wedding turned out a little different to how we all thought it would weather-wise but they didn’t let that dampen their spirits for even one minute!! With family, close friends and relatives flown in from the UK they joined their futures together and partied into the wee hours :-D
Janet and Adam, you are SUCH a lovely couple – thank you so much for sharing all this with me!
A few sneak peeks from Kate and Charles-Eric’s gorgeous wedding at Rockhaven here in Elgin! Beautiful love right there!
The happiest summer picnic and MOST fun couple!! Jean and Rich celebrated their wedding here in Elgin on the gorgeous wine farm South Hill – it was the most relaxed and heartfelt celebration with so many tears and laughs! The food was incredible, the live music so vibey and I can only imagine that the party went on for a long time after I left :-D
What a way to celebrate the start of your lives together, you two!! Thank you SO much for letting me be a part of it!

A little sneak peek from Danielle and Daryl’s baby bump shoot last week! An incredibly special couple for me and I’m so thrilled to have captured happy moments right from their engagement shoot through to their wedding and now with little baba Bhana on the way!
At the end of last year I had the absolute pleasure of photographing images for the website of an exquisite new artisanal creation called ClemenGold Gin. What a treat to be surrounding with such scents and textures! From dried ClemenGold peel, to coriander seeds, juniper berries to orris root. You can also order this beautiful gin online! Here are some of my favourite pics from the day.
These two… Gorgeous, hilarious and loving life with a passion!!! Louise and Dean’s sneak peek! :-D
Hildegard is the viticulturist and Tariro is the winemaker at Springfontein in Stanford and together they grow and craft wonderful wines off beautiful limestone soils. They absolutely set my screen on fire for their engagement shoot and I love their vibrant, happy beauty together!! I can’t wait for June and some Grootbos vows and loveliness :-)
There such a wonderful saying in Afrikaans ‘elke pot het sy deksel’ which translates as every pot has it’s lid. This means there’s someone perfect for you out there in the world :-) This really shines through for me with these two! They compliment each other so perfectly and really give each other space to be themselves! That’s a precious thing in my book… Ash and Guy, I hope you relive these happy moments each time you see the photos and take the memories with you on your travels!
Some sneak peek pics from Janet and Adam’s beautiful day at Jonkershuis in Groot Constantia! The kindest, loveliest couple you’ll meet!!
