The speeches at Tanya and Mark’s wedding made me laugh to tears and gave me such a good glimpse into this fun, happy, adventurous couple’s lives! They’ve taken on so much together and managed to plan this whole beautiful day from overseas with the fantastic guidance and hands-on creative help of Cara from The Mosaic Wedding Company! I can imagine even getting so many lovely family members and friends out from overseas must have been a challenge in itself, but I get the feeling these two are a match for anything!! What a gorgeous day it turned out to be – my first wedding at Molenvliet in Stellenbosch and my first time almost bumping into a wild pig and her babies while I was scouting for the couple shoot! Hahaa! What a day :-D Tanya and Mark, I loved every minute and am so grateful for the chance to spend this time capturing you both as you embark on the next big adventure!
I just couldn’t choose between these two for a sneak peek… Tanya and Mark loving EVERY minute of their wonderful day!
This is a bit of a different sneak peek! This gorgeous couple, my ultimate foodie bride and groom, went straight from the church to get an ice cream and beer from the wonderful Fanny Chanel at Schoon de Companje – seriously, how much do I love these two?!?! p.s We got ice creams too! ;-)
Oh the sweet tears, long hugs and gentle gracefulness that made up so much of Andrea and Alex’s beautiful wedding day at Knorhoek… These two are definitely crafted of the same celestial cloth (listen, I’m feeling inspired!) and destined for a happy lifetime together! Thank youuuu Andrea and Alex for letting me follow you through these hours to witness your new beginning… I hope you love the photographs and they bring special times back to life for years to come! Thank you so much to the wonderful Michelle Parkin Photography for assisting.
Oh my faint heart, we’ve had some incredible light this season!! Gorgeous Andrea and Alex’s sneak peek…
Jenna emailed me a long while back to share a bit about their fairytale romance and how Philipp proposed after only having spent twenty one days together! She said ‘when you know you know’ and it couldn’t have been more obvious how perfect these two are for each other at the wedding! A very special bond… They shared their celebrations with family and friends from out here in South Africa and from Philipp’s home country Austria. Tokara was such a beautiful setting and backdrop for so much emotion and happy festivities! Enjoy the photos of this beautiful couple – inside and out!! Assisted by the lovely Illyan Cloete.
This one needs to be wall size… Gorgeous Jenna and Philipp…
Ellen and Nick’s beautiful wedding day was bright and breezy on top of the Stellenbosch hills at lovely Landtscap. The views from this venue never stop taking my breath away! A few moments like a runaway flower girl, her dad who couldn’t beat the wind trying to lift her veil and a bench with watching guests collapsing during the ceremony all served to break the ice and make it a day full of laughs and great moments :-D Such spirit and happiness! This sums up Ellen and Nick too!!
Ellen and Nick, thank you for having me along for this amazing ride!! I hope you love the photos and they bring back the happiest memories for years to come!
My wedding was in winter so shoots like these hold a special significance for me :-) I got married in the Drakensberg mountains on a crisp July morning and the light was calm and low and all the colours were greys, browns and silvers in the fields and on the hills. I love this shoot we did with Fleur le Cordeur for Wedding Inspirations magazine so much!! What a beautiful vision she had for mixing so many elements and textures – natural and glamourous… I hope you enjoy the photos. Stunning installations, furniture, lighting and decor from Something Different Concepts and Shows. Breath-taking make-up and hair from the one and only talent Yolande du Toit. Swoon-worthy dresses and boas from Kobus Dippenaar Atelier and perfectly exquisite stationery from the awesome White Kite Studio. Our models were beautiful Valery Zelenyuk and Silke Viljoen and we shot at 401 Rozendal and they were such a pleasure to work with! Behind the scenes pics were taken by Chantall Marshall Photography. We were also lucky enough to have the shoot featured on the beautiful Pretty Blog :-)
My job is essentially an incredibly optimistic one. There really is a lot of love and so many happy connections out there in the world that I get to see… I know a lot of life is hard and demanding, but it’s an amazing thing to be able to witness this energised and inspiring time in two peoples lives when they can’t hide their adoration for each other or how excited they are for their future. I know these two, Margot and Leonard, will carry that beautiful spirit forward into their marriage together.
Margot, you have a 1000w smile and you and Leonard have been a joy to spend time with! I look foward to each of your lovely emails and I hope you love these photos and feel that they’re a wonderful start of your photo story with me which carries on in November! tx
Kate and Warren were my last wedding for this season! What a happy and emotional celebration they had on a softly lit day to welcome in winter. It was also my first wedding shoot at Landtscap and wow, what a view!
Kate, you’ve been a delight to email and chat with and I can see why there were so many tears of happiness from your family for you both! You have such a wonderful bond with your loved ones! It’s the beginning of something wonderful for you two!! I hope you love the photos and that they bring back the happiest memories for you always!!

There’s so much to love about Taryn and Ivan – for me they’ve been a total delight from day 1! They’re the loveliest, happiest and most genuine couple and considering they first met and fell in love back in the day when they were just out of school and working at Edgars together, it’s incredible to see that they’re still very much in love… an inspiration really! Taryn and Ivan were married at the lovely Hidden Valley and enjoyed some really lucky clear winter weather with their friends and loved ones!
I hope you enjoy the photos and are all keeping snug in this crazy cold snap! Assisted by the inimitable Illyan Cloete.
I love so many pics from Margot and Leonard’s Lovebirds engagement shoot, mostly for Margot’s incredible smile and the beautiful woods we found to shoot in, but I’m choosing this for the sneak peek because of the simple perfection of winter textures and it’s such a tender moment between these two… More photos coming soon!
