Shepstone Gardens Wedding: Cleo & Darren

Cleo and Darren were married at Shepstone Gardens at the beginning of February. It’s always fun to work there, and this was no exception! When I first met with Cleo and Darren about shooting their wedding, I remember them saying, “I’m sure everyone says this, but our wedding is special.”  Well, it was, from the croquet to the sushi bar to the awesome party to the “homestyle” food served on big platters and passed around the table…but the thing that made it the most special was the fun and laughter and love that Darren and Cleo clearly share. Thanks for inviting me to be a part of that love and fun!

My 2nd shooter for the day was Juanette Van Schalkwyk again. Always a pleasure!
