When I contacted Cape Town Photographer Monica Dart and asked her if she had any weddings I could shoot with her while I was in Cape Town, she suggested Chris and Judy’s intimate home wedding. What she didn’t tell me was that Chris is a world-renowned photographer! Nothing like a bit of pressure for my first wedding in Cape Town. The second I met Chris and Judy, though, I was completely put at ease. They are both incredibly warm, funny and wonderful people, and their wedding was the epitome of chilled and laidback – not to mention full of the love of family and friends.
That’s Judy with the camera, taking a photo of her sister, Prue.
Judy and her eldest son, Alex.
Chris requested we get a shot of Judy coming round a certain corner of Chapman’s Peak in the vintage Mercedes he’d organised for her.
The wedding took place at their holiday home, Villa Lara, in Llandudno.
I love that everyone wore white.
Between them Chris and Judy have five sons! Don’t they look wonderful?
It was one of the hottest days of the year in Cape Town, so it’s unsurprising that everyone ended up around the pool. I kind of wished I could join them.
The food by Urban Nosh was incredible!
