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 🙂
Ashleigh and Mark were my third wedding at Shepstone Gardens in March. I’m starting to think I should just move in there. 🙂
I really love creative decor, and this wedding had me swooning with awesome overload! All the decor and food (which was delicious) were done by Vaughn’s Creations, and every little detail was just stunning. The theme was vintage high tea, and it was pulled off to perfection.
Adrienne and Kevin flew out from the UK to have their wedding at the always gorgeous Shepstone Gardens in March. When I arrived, I was completely bowled over by the stunning blue and yellow decor (which could explain why there are so many pictures of it!) by Gabriella and her team at Signature Events, and the rest of the wedding was just as gorgeous. Adrienne and Kevin were as excited and happy as they could possibly be, and that made for some amazing photographs.
This post is extra image-heavy. It might also cause your brain to shut down from awesome overload. Or maybe you’ll just want to get married (possibly again) so you can plan a wedding as adorable and fun as this one.
Taryn and Marc booked me from the UK in March last year, so we only met a week before their wedding, and I was thrilled at how completely awesome they were, and how interesting and fun and sweet and in love. I was already in seventh heaven when Taryn told me her dress was designed by the fabulous Abigail Betz, so I must have hit eighth heaven when I actually SAW it. And the decor….swoonworthy. All by the fantastic Eve from Splendid Affairs, of course. And Taryn’s stunning vintage makeup was done by the super-talented Sam Scaife from Lashline (I’m running out of adjectives to describe all the wonderful people who were involved in this wedding!)
I think I’ll just let the pictures tell the story…
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!
