Chic country wedding {Marlette and Warren}

May 28, 2012

You might remember Warren and Marlette from their awesome urban engagement shoot a few months ago. They brought a lot of cute props along on that shoot, so I knew their wedding would be just as full of lovely and fun details, and I was right. This was the third and last of the weddings I went back to South Africa to shoot in April, and it didn’t disappoint! The ceremony and reception were held at the lovely little Tin Roof Cafe in Pretoria, and I loved the country chic feel in there! The flowers and table decor were done by the wonderful Eve of Splendid Affairs, and my second shooter for the day was Darrell Fraser.

Wedding {Kate and JP}

May 16, 2012

Kate and JP’s wedding was the second of my three South African weddings, and it was, true to the fantastic clients I have, an absolute blast. I don’t think Kate stopped laughing the entire day, let alone smiling. They got married at St Peter’s, right opposite Zoo Lake, and we did their couple shoot in a park in Parkview. I had them on the swings, the see-saw, the merry-go-round…I don’t think the day could have been more fun!

I also call this day “The return of the cousins” – Kate, you see, is the cousin of Craig (of Jade and Craig, whose wedding I shot in January 2010), AND Cathy (of Cathy and Sean, from December 2010)! I’m just working my way through the family. :-) I had an amazing time at both those weddings, and this one didn’t disappoint – clearly, this is one awesome family! I’m glad I nabbed them.

One of Kate’s bridesmaids made these shoes for her to wear at the reception!

Snacks for the guests to have on their way to the reception, which was a good hour’s drive in traffic.

Perfume is sooo tedious.

The perfume leap! Kate decided to spray her dress with perfume, and since it was hanging in the rafters, she just jumped.

Coolest thing ever. This is so my kind of crowd. I might have squealed and clapped my hands a bit.

Look, it’s Jade & Craig! The sign they are holding reads “Thanks for the idea, Craig & Jade”, and it was in the cheese wheel cake everyone snacked on while they waited for us. Craig and Jade did the same thing at their wedding!

Afternoon Garden Wedding {Lucinda and Rob}

May 12, 2012

 

Lucinda and Rob were married in April, the first of three weddings I went back to South Africa to shoot. They had a lovely relaxed afternoon wedding at the ever-gorgeous Shepstone Gardens in Johannesburg, and the pretty vintage chic decor completely blew me away! Belljars and ribbons and birdcages and teacups everywhere! Plus I hardly ever get to shoot outside receptions, so this was an added treat for me. Add to this that Rob and Lucinda are just lovely, sweet people, with wonderful friends and family who made me feel like I was at the party too, and a wonderful time was had by Andre (Andre Sonnekus, who was my excellent assistant shooter for the day) and me. Shooting weddings like this makes my job not seem too much like work :-)
