Wedding: Bianca and Michael at Avianto

August 30, 2011

 

Bianca and Michael’s wedding was held at Avianto last week Sunday.  Every little thing about this wedding was lovely –  the bird theme carried throughout from the groomsmen boutonnieres to the cake toppers, Bianca’s showstopping dress, the family getting involved and doing the decor, the cute little signs for the bridal party, and of course, the loveliness of Bianca and Michael themselves. Bianca chopped off her hair the day before the wedding as a surprise for Michael, who prefers shorter hair, and it looked incredible! I think he was suitably impressed :-)

Firstly, a BLACK wedding ring? Wow. And secondly, I was having some fun with these ring shots! I thought they looked totally cute on these cheese wedges. :-)

I just love this last one…for a second it’s just a big puffy white cloud until you see what’s happening.

Bianca and Michael, thank you so much for such an incredible day! And thanks to my second shooter for the day, Juanette from Deanna Photography.

Westcliff Hotel wedding: Lyndall & Brook

August 22, 2011

 

Lyndall and Brook. What a sweet, genuinely loving couple. Lyndall’s family are originally from South Africa, but they moved to the UK years ago. And it was on a trip to Australia that Lyndall’s brother met Brook, on a cruise around Sydney Harbour. Since Lyndall had already told him to find a good-looking Australian guy for her, it was fate. They became Facebook friends, and that was the beginning of, well, the beginning. :-)

This was also the first LDS wedding I’ve ever photographed – or, in this case, NOT photographed, since I wasn’t allowed inside the temple. So perhaps I should say it was the first wedding I’ve photographed where I wasn’t actually at the wedding itself :-) However, Lyndall and Brook had a ring ceremony at the Westcliff after we left the temple, so that the rest of their guests could witness that…and the first kiss. They then had a lunchtime reception, finally ending off the day with the couple photos! Never let it be said that weddings are all the same. This one certainly wasn’t. Also, as it turns out, Lyndall and her sister Camilla and I all went to the same Primary School, so I had a good old chat with their mother about that! Small world indeed.

My second shooter for the day was Corinna Tannian.

I’m really enjoying this ray of sun shining down on Lyndall…as if she didn’t look ethereal enough! Le sigh.

Since they were already married, Lyndall and Brook were pelted with confetti as they arrived AND as they left! Which I totally loved…it’s awesome fun, and you get double use out of your petals!

Each table at the reception was named after a place or something else that had personal meaning to Lyndall and Brook as a couple. There was even a table called “skype”, which played a big part in their relationship when they were living in different places.

And Brook’s brother made a very emotional one:

Silja & Rob: Wedding at the Johannesburg Country Club

August 17, 2011

 

Robert and Silja were married the weekend before last. Because of some last minute emergencies, they booked me only ten days before their wedding, but I was thrilled to be there and be a part of their incredibly special union. Rob and Silja have a very special love story, which Silja explained to me when she booked me, and which made it even more emotional for them…and for me.

In Silja’s words:
“Robert and I have known each other for almost 20 years, were never married. We have a daughter together who was born in 1995. When Anaïs was 3 we separated (our gap years as we now call them) and through a true miracle found back to each other 10 years later. I believe if we had stayed together then we would not be together today. We both needed to grow and mature; we never stopped loving each other, though, and it is a blessing to have our family reunited.

We have been through challenging times since getting back together in late 2007. Robert had a horrendous car accident (fell asleep behind the wheel and drove into the back of a bus), which he survived only because of his guardian angel’s protection. He broke almost every bone in his face, lost teeth and a part of his lip and underwent 3 operations. But he was brave and strong and has made a remarkable recovery.”

Isn’t that wonderful? I love the idea of finding your way back to your love after many years apart.

Now onto the photos…

Thank you for a great day, Rob & Silja. You are wonderful, and your family and friends are fantastic. I wish you a lifetime of happiness, now that you’re finally together for always.

Michelle & Tyrone at Shepstone Gardens

August 3, 2011

 

Just before Christmas last year I second shot for Lindy Leeming at the ever-awesome Shepstone Gardens. However, at the time I had so many weddings of my own going on, that blogging the photos from an assisting job kind of fell onto the backburner  – until now, when I suddenly remembered that I’d never blogged them, and that hey, I actually have time now!

Because I was second shooting, I went to photograph the guys getting ready, which was a fun change as I’m always with the bride on my own weddings.
