Wedding: Angel & Neels at Helderfontein

July 27, 2010


I love social networking. Facebook, Twitter – I have them open all day and I spend way too much time on them. And then, because of  Twitter, I got to photograph a wedding like this one, which suddenly makes it all worthwhile from a business point of view. (It was always worth it from the other viewpoints) :-)

I don’t even remember how I met photographer Jeanette Verster, but I know we were twitter buddies long before I ever met her in real life. Through her, I started following Angel (of Angelsmind and Cupcake Lady fame), so when Jeanette said she needed a second shooter for Angel’s wedding, I believe my response was something along the lines of  “Heck yes! Me! Me!”

The wedding guestlist was like a who’s who of the SA blogging and twitter world. Angel and Neels actually met through their respective blogs, and I think it’s a testament to the sort of people they are (wonderful, loving, open, warm) that blogger friends flew in from all over the country to witness their union. They even streamed the whole event online so that the people who couldn’t make it could still be a part of the day. I told you it was amazing.

Here are some photos from the day. You can see Jeanette’s post about the wedding here, for more pics!

Angel’s amazing dress was designed for her by Christa B:

They used some of Jeanette’s engagement photos for their seating chart, as well as on the tables. Everything about this wedding was so full of personal touches!
