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.
I loved these bridesmaids!
Coolest thing ever. This is so my kind of crowd. I might have squealed and clapped my hands a bit.
Through the balloons…
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!
All my couples together! Awww.
