From the first time Jen, Warren and I started talking about the feel of the wedding photography they were after, the word ‘Farm’ kept coming up again and again. Jen is one of the chefs heading up the duo of talent that makes Zest Catering the success it is, and this great little company runs off the Beaumont Wine Farm nestled in cosy Bot River town. Warren has worked at select high-end game farms like Londolozi and Grumeti (among other amazing things he has done, including being a paramedic and wildlife photographer!), and they both felt very strongly that they wanted their wedding to be natural and honest. Warren got ready at the nearby Wildekrans Bed and Breakfast – a stunning little guesthouse chock full of quirky art and breathtaking scenery! Jen got ready at the Millhouse on the farm which is an original building set against a working watermill that has been lovingly restored back to life. Warren has firm Scottish roots and the kilt and accessories were a very important part of the ceremony – love the purple!! Jen’s hair was done by her expert hairdresser friend Lanica and the make-up by her gorgeous sister Ashleigh. The whole day was organised with exquisite precision by the amazing Kim Werner of Wedding Concepts and all flowers were beautifully put together by Elgin Weddings.
I grew up on a farm and this is my ideal type of wedding to shoot – beautiful, intimate and relaxed. Enjoy the photos!
