{Wedding} Wendy + Ivor

I honestly cannot decide which is my favourite memory from this wedding, there are just so many… an incredible (beautiful) bride, gorgeous dresses (both bride and bridesmaids – Hoiden bridesmaids is by far my favourite SA brand!), that breath-stopping moment when the zip got stuck (and several terrified looks were exchanged behind Wendy’s back), bright florals (Monique Ritson is so talented), amazing venue (I love shooting at Winery Road), fun guests who knew how to party the night away to a great DJ… it was just such a wonderful wedding!  Thank you Ivor and Wendy for allowing me to capture your love story; it may have started 10 years ago, but I pray this is just the beginning of God’s ‘next level’ for both of you.

{e-shoot} Wendy + Ivor

Its shoots like this that remind me how incredible it is to live in Cape Town… what a beautiful city?! I’ve wanted to do a shoot in Bokaap for ages and was so happy when Wendy suggested it – don’t you just love all the colours? And can Table Mountain ever be beaten for a backdrop?

Soooooo excited for Wendy & Ivor’s Big Day tomorrow <3 Its going to be gorgeous…

 

{Wedding} Francois & Nikki

Every so often a wedding comes your way which is so different from the norm that its refreshing.  Nikki and Francois’ wedding is one of those weddings – so relaxed and with such a simple focus of Love in Community.  Still beautiful, and lacking nothing, this couple proved you don’t have to fall victim to the money game to be a beautiful day… family and friends set up the venue (at their church hall), moms and aunties cooked delicious soup for dinner, friends brought platters to share… it reminded me of what weddings should be: the Community coming together to bless the couple.  I loved it! Congratulations FraNikki; may God continue to pour out His best-est upon you both…
