A few snapshots of the homemade pies, crusty loaves, fresh juices and gourmet milkshakes you can get at Peregrine farmstall here in Elgin!

What an incredibly grown up soup night in – roasted tomato puree with pumpkin bread and bone marrow. Rustic and earthy flavours with spices and sage. This is for when you want an afternoon in the kitchen, pottering around and filling your home with fragrant smells of wintery cooking.

These posts are never about the fireworks and money shots – just fleeting impressions caught in the camera… Enjoy…

Winter gives me some time to get blogging and I wanted to share some snaps from the Hickory Shack’s shoot for their new website. If you haven’t been to the Hickory Shack here in Elgin you’re seriously missing out! Pulled pork, delicious slaw, smoked brisket, homemade pickles, buttermilk chicken, local ciders and lots of Elgin gees!

This special morning wedding meant a nice and early wake-up call for me and it couldn’t have been for a more gorgeous view and pastel-hued sunrise. Hildegard and Tariro pledged their lives to each other in front of the magnificent dunes and fynbos of Grootbos Private Nature Reserve and were surrounded by their most precious loved ones. Hildegard spent the afternoon the day before the wedding picking proteas out of the wild hills for her bouquet – what memories to take away… These two have their hearts in the right place and I think every chosen person there felt lucky to be a witness to the start of their new family. Thank you Hildegard and Tariro for chosing me for capture these moments!

There’s something magic about photographing children – their fresh curiosity in the camera, their ability to carry on their happy activities even if you’re there and their downright delightful commitment to having a good time :-D These two were just camera gold and I loved every minute with them!

It’s been a total privilege to capture Heather and Ryan’s eshoot, wedding, first baba shoot and now these photos with their second precious girl – it fills me with big love to see the whole circle turning so beautifully!

I don’t often get around to making pies as it’s not a 5 minute affair but when I do they are always so rewarding! This one from the Food Fox is next on my list to make – hands down the most delicious and winter-weather-ready pie I’ve ever had! Stout, beef, mushrooms, thyme, sour cream…. you know it’s going to be something special… The rice pudding is also topping the comfort food-o-meter at the moment :-) Remember to use risotto rice and not long grain. Find these super recipes here on our food column for the Pretty Blog.

May is always touch and go with weather but Melissa and Thys’ wedding fell on the most gloriously sunny day and all their plans came together beautifully for their Vrede en Lust celebration! It was my last summer season wedding and I couldn’t have asked for more laughs, radiantly happy smiles or more genuine love between two special people. Melissa and Thys, thank you for being so lovely and sharing the most happy day with me! Enjoy these precious memories… Assisted by the lovely Illyan Cloete
