Engagement: Bronwen & Tienus

November 30, 2010

 

I love, love, love it when my clients come up with fun ideas for their shoots! Bronwen and Tienus are getting married next month (eek! This month!), and suggested we do their engagement shoot at Santarama miniworld in Johannesburg south. I was completely for it, especially since my last memory of the place was going there on a primary school outing in the eighties! :-) Bronwen & Tienus brought balloons (most of which popped on the grass during their picnic – who knew grass was so sharp? But they didn’t mind) and the cutest felt alphabet letters and a heart, which I loved! I’m a sucker for anything cute and romantic.

B & T, see you at the Indaba Hotel in 2.5 weeks!

Chiara and David: Engagement

November 26, 2010

 

Chiara and David are So Much Fun.  Seriously, with capital letters. They are getting married at Shepstone Gardens next month, and they wanted a funky, brightly-coloured location for their engagement shoot as a contrast to Shepstone’s secret garden feel. So we hit up Newtown and went crazy. At the end we went to the Mandela Bridge, and the light was just AMAZING, with the most fantastically wicked thunderclouds over town. I went crazy for it. Luckily David and Chiara are pretty crazy themselves (in the best way), and they thought it was awesome too. I had a blast with you guys; can’t wait for your wedding next weekend!

We went to a nearby street, where a bunch of guys were practising their skateboarding.

Loved this!

And then on to the Mandela Bridge. The sun was shining happily on the right of the picture, which is why they’re so lit up in front of the black clouds. I died of awesome overload.

Engagement in Johannesburg: Nadia and Chris

November 22, 2010

 

Nadia and Chris are getting married at Memoire in December, so we did their engagement shoot a few weeks ago. I hadn’t met them before the shoot, so I was thrilled to discover how good-looking they both are! I’m so excited about their wedding!

We took a whole bunch of photos with table numbers as well, but these are going to be used in the wedding (again, so excited! I love to see my photos used at a wedding in a creative way!) …so in the meantime, here are some of the ones we took without.

Wedding in the Midlands: Shauna & Ian at Providence

November 17, 2010

 

My first trip to the Natal Midlands turned out to be completely wonderful. Not only because it’s so incredibly beautiful there, but because Shauna and Ian were just the sweetest couple ever. And not just sweet, but fun, crazy and willing to go out in the rain and mist for their photoshoot without a murmur. It was misty and drizzly pretty much the entire day, so we worked with it and rocked it out! I was actually pretty excited by it, because it’s a new kind of prettiness I hadn’t worked with at a wedding before.

Props to the bridal party for going out in the rain, too, and I have to give a huge thanks to Fern and Kevin, the owners at Providence, who are prepared for all eventualities and provided all the bridesmaids with fleecy blankets to wear during the photoshoot, lent us their umbrellas, and had two of the venue staff follow us around with giant umbrellas so that Kelly (my second shooter) and I didn’t get wet! And thanks to Kelly for driving up from Durban!

The decor and flowers were done by Eve of Splendid Affairs, who was one of Shauna’s bridesmaids!

It’s not a garter toss unless everyone ends up on the floor.

Shauna and Ian did THE most fun and funky dance I’ve ever seen at a wedding – hip hop style to a rock song…I don’t even know how to describe it, but it was AWESOME.

Awesome party!

Another awesome thing: the desserts at Providence were AMAZING, and were all made by Fern, the owner (as well as the delicious chocolate wedding cake!) I just had to post a few pics of the desserts because, well, look at them!

YUM. Thank you so much to everyone involved in this gorgeous wedding!

Wedding: Theresa & Petrus at Avianto

November 10, 2010

 

Theresa and Petrus… what can I say? A completely fun and original wedding for a fun and original couple! The decor, by the AMAZING Eve of Splendid Affairs, had me bouncing around with delight (and I’ve posted far more pics of it than I should have!), Theresa’s corset dress by Arwen was gorgeous, and I met two amazing videographers whom I would recommend in a heartbeat. Basically I want to get remarried so they can video my wedding… Go see their work here and here.

On with the show!

Wedding at Avianto: Cherene & Clark

November 8, 2010

 

Clark and Cherene were married a few weeks ago at Avianto in Muldersdrift. The ceremony was a mixture of laughter and tears (of joy!), the weather was perfect, and Cherene donned takkies for the couple shoot so she could walk more easily. That’s my kind of bride! :-)
