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.

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!!

Not even a sneak peek yet for Pips and Stu, but just a little photo I really wanted to share that I loved taking!

René and Dirk’s wedding was a truly spectacular affair – full of the most beautiful details, flowers, lace, gilt, some good luck drizzle and of course the love these two have for each other. They transformed Rockhaven Farm with the help of the super talented Valery from Agape Wedding and Event Design into a stunningly unique space to share their day with friends and loved ones. Rene and Dirk, you two were such a joy to be with – I hope the day was everything you dreamed of! xxx Many many thanks to my lovely second shooter Angelique Smith and my super assistant Tanith Müller.

Sometimes things just happen… the wind whips up and blows her veil over their faces and the gentle drizzle adds the most exquisite softness to the light… a confluence of fateful elements… that’s when you know you’re lucky… Here is a sneak peek from René and Dirk’s AMAZING wedding last weekend at beautiful Rockhaven here in Elgin.

So it was a gentle spring day with a salt-tanged breeze and gulls cawing overhead. Rene and Dirk wanted to shoot around the gorgeous Waterfront in Cape Town as that’s where he proposed and started this wonderful story off! There was a helicopter, a candlelit dinner and a diamond ring involved – sjo, that’s one romantic hubby-to-be!!!

Beautiful September light mixed with greys, blues and a touch of coral red made for sublimely happy and calm photographs. Enjoy!

Rene and Dirk, your beautiful wedding is almost here!

Many thanks to our gorgeous model Cornel Gardner (and of course lovely Fennec herself :-))
