Katie is a rare beauty, she just takes my breath away! It’s a special thing when a person who’s so lovely on the outside is equally lovely on the inside and from one look you can see that Charles-Eric just adores his bride! They make the most wonderful couple and she was at his side the whole day through a lot of emotion remembering his mom as they began their own family. Kate and Charles-Eric, thank you for including me in your beautiful day and I hope your life is full of wonderful times ahead and lots of lovely lists ;-)

Their wedding was at my favourite venue Rockhaven here in Elgin and put together expertly by Theresa from Creation Events. I was assisted by the lovely Illyan Cloete.

Gorgeous and pixie-petite Kim married her long time love Mike on a beautiful December’s day at Rockhaven. Kim is the most lovely and gentle-hearted girl, and her and Mike make an amazing team.

Enjoy this photo story of a truly wonderful couple surrounded by friends, family and the happiest moments as they start their life together! p.s These two were almost upstaged by THE cutest flower girls :-D

I’m sooooo happy to share this gorgeous wedding!!! Pips and Stu felt like immediate friends the minute I met them :-D I know and adore her gorgeous sister Jess through other mutual friends and times we’ve worked together in the wedding industry, so all in all this feels almost like something of a family wedding for me! Pippa was a total vision in THE most gorgeous dress and the day was styled and run beautifully at lovely Rockhaven! Well done to Theresa from Creation Events , the Rockhaven team and the talented duo at Ecozest for the truly magnificent and meticulous flowers and decor. Take some time to have a look through the photo story of their happiest day… Pips and Stu, thank you x1000000 for having me around to share all this!! Assisted by the lovely Tanith Muller.

Kerry and Nick on their happiest day… Rockhaven in autumn never disappoints with the perfect light…

On the most blustery day in December, the very last day of the whole year, Natalie and Nick were joined by all the most precious people in their lives to celebrate their wedding in true New Year’s Eve style! Lots of laughter, great wine and a tent full of happy hubbub! South Hill here in Elgin hosted the party perfectly, backed up by super delicious food from the talented chefs at the Lotus Food Truck. The kaleidoscope of colours and farm fresh flowers were put together beautifully by 4 Every Event (who were also there at 1am the night before to fix burst water pipes and electricity outages – what a team!). Hum a happy theme song for this wedding as you go through the photos – it was such an upbeat day! Assisted by the lovely Angelique Smith Photography See Natalie and Nick’s fun photo booth pics here!

So basically I’ve spent the last half an hour agonising over which sneak peek to share – these two lovebirds, plus so much Oak Valley loveliness means one happy camera and a lot of photos!! There’s just something about this shot in the greenhouses that I love :-D Keep an eye out for more of this gorgeous pair coming soon!

I just loved this wedding from beginning to end! I absolutely adore Beloftebos with it’s rolling vistas, a ceremony area tucked into an ancient tree grove, glowing Overberg sunsets and the wonderful people there who manage to keep the farm charm underpinned with exceptional service, wonderful food and a real smiling can-do attitude! Such a happy and magical spot to celebrate your big day. Deani and Hano made the great trek down from Jozi and managed to pick a rain free May day for their amazing wedding!! Deani looked like a perfect Snow White bride with her exquisite red lips and ebony hair, and Hano may have had a little of that lipstick on his own lips by the end of the day ;-) I love love love the soft light we got for their couple shoot… I hope you enjoy looking through the photos as much as I loved being there to document their day :-) Assisted by the lovely Claire Harries Photography.

One last sneak peek from Deani and Hano’s Beloftebos wedding :-D Doesn’t she look like a Scottish Highlands queen? Too gorgeous…

What a view, what a place, what a couple and what a day!! This is a veeery long post this morning, but I just couldn’t cut it down more :-) Ellie and Grant were married at The Oaks just outside of gorgeous Greyton. This is now one of my top three favourite venues! An original Cape Dutch farmstead that has been lovingly restored, tucked away in a heavenly and tranquil little valley at the foot of the Zonderend Mountains in the Overberg – a more perfect spot to get married you’d be hard pressed to find. Ellie and Grant, you two have been amazing and utterly delightful from the beginning!! I’m so grateful you chose me to share this day with you… Enjoy the photos :-D Assisted by the wonderful Claire Harries Photography.

My Snow White bride Deani with apple red lips – like something out of a fairytale…

On the very first day of March, a beautifully warm start to autumn, Nina and Simon were married in the gorgeous boathouse at Rockhaven Farm. I just love everything about this wedding, especially how they had a late lunch reception and just spent the evening dancing – love it!!! It really gave us a great chance to keep the flash photos to a minimum and just use the lovely natural light – and what amazing light they had, especially on the couple shoot! Nina and Simon, I hope you love the photos so much and they bring back the happiest memories of the most stunning, loved-up day… Assisted by the wonderful Claire Harries Photography :-)

I just can’t wait to share this one… absolute light and magic!! Ellie, you are so beautiful…

This really was one of the most relaxed weddings I’ve shot in such a long time – a real treat to just go with the happy flow of the day and capture the moments passing by. Nicola and Nick came out from their UK base for our first meeting over some of the bad weather spells we had last year and try as we might to find a date that wasn’t raining for their Lovebirds Engagement shoot it just wasn’t meant to be… Nevertheless these two took to having cameras around on their wedding day with perfect aplomb and I’m so grateful I got to share their phenomenal day at Rockhaven! Theresa from Creation Events Co-ordination put the whole day together beautifully and I so look forward to working with her again. Assisted by the lovely Kristi Agier Photography.

From the first emails and chats it felt like the PERFECT fit with Kate and Chris! Not only did we chat weddings, details and Rockhaven loveliness but also our mutual love of great food! The photos of the rings and shoes in the edible herb garden are my nod to their foodie hearts :-D Chris has turned his brilliant plans into reality and started a food truck in Cape Town for Asian eats and noodles – ooooh!! Go check out whether the Lotus Food Truck will be in your area!

It can’t have been easy fitting the wedding into their lives this past year! They were coming home from Australia, finding new jobs, houses, fitting back in, moving stuff AND planning the big day – not for the feint-hearted!! With the help of special people like Kate’s great friend Fennec of Fox & Co and the amazing team at Rockhaven, they pulled off something wonderful! Hands down the most delightful wedding of 2013! Take a look at the photos… p.s Kate’s ex-ballerina gracefulness is something else… happy sigh…

I just adore shooting at Beaumont in Bot River! A little gem in the heart of the Overberg – so relaxed and full of farm charm, plus the catering team based there, Zest, are a talented duo who make all manner of deliciousness in their kitchen!! Sue and Nick made such a great choice to get married there and the whole day fit so beautifully with their happy, laid back personalities! There was some surprising unforecast rain which moved the reception from the planned garden soiree into the wine cellar, but judging by the laughter levels and all the platters and wine bottles I saw going back to the kitchen empty I can say without doubt that this didn’t impact the happy mood of the day one bit!! Thanks to Selmari Slot for wonderful assisting on the day!

Sue and Nick, you guys take my breath away! So gorgeous, so happy, so meant for each other… I know you’re going to have such an amazing life with all your travels, but I hope these photos will keep a little piece of your heart in South Africa :-)
