Tag Archives: Rockhaven Farm

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.

There’s something about this photo that I love… something simple and quiet. Lovely Nicola, what an exquisite bride you made…

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…

Ah my lovely Elgin valley… Nicola on her beautiful wedding day at Rockhaven Farm

This is why I do my job ;-) Absolute, pure, undiluted joy :-D

Kate, my exquisite, Audrey Hepburn-esque, gentle-souled, ballerina beauty…

This wedding is all about South African heart and Irish fun!! Tam and Jim chose the most perfect late spring day at the fantastic Rockhaven Farm to get married and celebrate with such an awesome and lively group of family and friends!! And boy do those Irish know how to have a good knees up!! Tam and Jim, I know there isn’t going to be a dull moment in your lives together :-D I hope these photos bring some warm and happy memories to you in chilly England now :-) txx

And so, on a crisp spring afternoon in September, Leani and Franco walked out of the boat house at Rockhaven Farm in Elgin, and into a rain of confetti, glitter and so many happy congratulations! There is so much to love about this wedding and these two, so much love and craftsmanship put in by their whole families and so much creative effort that made the whole day the happiest celebration… Have a peek… Assisted by the ever lovely Illyan Cloete :-)

Rockhaven in winter is almost as gorgeous as Rockhaven in summer. The low light lends a gentle sense of romance to an already dreamy venue. Clarissa and Rainer braved the weather fates and celebrated their wonderful wedding in the soft August sun – so beautiful! (We didn’t even get to use the specially bought umbrella’s for the occasion :-)) Here are the photos of their lovely day…

I adore the colours of fynbos – even in winter… Clarissa and Rainer had fate smiling on them with their gorgeous sunny wedding in a week filled with freezing rain. I love this sun filled shot of them in the grasses – so much love!!
