This is the second rainy wedding I’ve shot at Vrede en Lust for an overseas couple hoping for African sun and the second one where the rain held off just for the ceremony and couple shoot! I feel like there’s been some luck in my stars! Gorgeous Yolana and her American hubby-to-be Douglas celebrated the day and danced the night away with their nearest and dearest… What a phenomenal wedding put together beautifully by the Mosaic Wedding Company! Wonderful second shooting from Samantha Clifton Photography and assisted by Margriet Vollgraaf from MagPie Photography

How beautiful is this perfectly dusted lemon polenta cake? Definitely one of my favourite shots from our lovely shoot with The Birdcage – the much loved tea-room and cake magicians based in Stellenbosch. They’ve become famous for their stunning naked wedding cakes but that’s just the tip of their creative skills! They also offer the most delicious catering now so give them a buzz!

Earthy, wintery, hearty pulses and succulent, flavourful lamb – a match made in heaven! Here we have the Food Fox’s spicy lamb and chickpea stew plus a beautiful Italian style white bean soup with lamb shanks and gremolata – a total winner!! These recipes and more come from our super collab with Lamb and Mutton SA.

Sonjé and Jõvan’s beautiful and emotional celebration was held at the lovely Glen Brae right here in Elgin – what a treat to photograph so much gorgeousness on my doorstep! These two are such gems! From the time we first met up we were laughing and chatting straight away and I’m so happy to have captured the connection between them on the big day! There was a lot more laughing, quite a bit of crying, heartfelt kisses and toasty marshmallows to top it all off – how could a wedding get any better?

Thank you both for chasing the sunset with me! It was a magical day!! Assisted by the lovely Elri Photography

These two gentle and beautiful souls said their vows and started their own new family at the leafy Conservatory in Franschhoek. The autumn sun shone for them the whole day and apart from almost stepping on a baby puff adder during the couple shoot (woops!!) the day was a perfect and personal celebration for them to remember…

Kate and Simon, thank you for letting me share these beautiful times with you! Enjoy your happy photos…

Assisted by the lovely Samantha Clifton Photography and their day was co-ordinated by the super efficient team at Trunk Events.

Throw back to some cleaned-lined shots we did for a modern cafe concept – nice to approach things differently! Minimalist but still feminine.

Camilla’s beautiful family farm out by the Theewaterskloof dam has seen two daughters get married in the last six months! So many special memories!! We willed the rain to stay away until after couple shoot and it obliged so beautifully but gave us some dramatic low skies as well. So gorgeous and moody!!

Camilla, you’ve been such a delight to get to know and I can see how perfectly you two are matched! Listening to the wonderful speeches I know all your loved ones can too :-) Thank you both for sharing these precious memories with me!

Beautiful second shooting from Samantha Clifton Photography and assisted by Sonia Zulu. The day was expertly put together by Nu Experiences.

The Food Fox and I have been working with some gorgeous meat during our collab with Lamb and Mutton SA! And of course Ilse has transformed these wonderful ingredients into spectacular recipes. Here we have an easy lamb chop bourgignon and a Greek style 8-hour leg of lamb with lemons – trust me when I say yummmmm….
