Sarah and Chad Wedding at Four Seasons Westcliff Hotel
Article Summary: When I first met Sarah, this beautiful redhead I just knew I had to be her wedding photographer, and I am so glad they booked me for their special day.
Sarah and Chad got married at the gorgeous Four Seasons Hotel in Westcliff. They got married in the Rose Garden, but this almost didn’t happen as it started to rain 15 minutes before she was supposed to walk down the aisle. The staff started moving all the chairs to a covered area, but when Sarah caught wind of this happening she made them move it all back. I secretly did a little happy dance when I saw the chairs being carried back up. The rain stopped 10 minutes later and the ceremony started on time.
I loved photographing Sarah and Chad wedding! Sarah and Chad are a beautiful couple, and the Four Seasons Hotel did not disappoint.

Chantelle and Nicky Wedding at Memoire
Article Summary: On a very overcast day in Gauteng a radiant and positively glowing couple got married at Memoire. I heard from other photographers that on this day it rained at all their weddings in and around the area. Although the clouds were on top of us it only started to rain once we stepped foot inside the reception. #blessed.
So much effort went into creating such a gorgeous wedding. I loved their colour scheme of grey, blush pink, white and green accents. A highlight for me were the hand made hot water bottle wedding favours.The theme of this, as well as the gifts for the men which were chilli bites was ” Die Liefde is warm”. How cute is that?! Chantelle’s garter was also exquisite and was made by one of her bridesmaids.
Another highlight (there were so many) was when Nicky sang a song he wrote for Chantelle. It was gorgeous and filled with so much emotion!
These two were such a joy to photograph, not only are they both absolutely gorgeous, they are also one of the nicest, ...
Leande and Martin Cow Shed Wedding
Article Summary: This was my first time shooting at the Cow Shed in Lydenburg and it did not disappoint! I love the wide open spaces, the farm feel and the stunning backdrop of mountains! Their decor and colour scheme was so fitting for this venue with the bright reds and yellows. I also loved the pomegranates on the side of the aisle and in the buckets around the venue.
The ceremony was so beautiful, even though I can’t understand Afrikaans I felt the emotion and the message the pastor delivered. Another highlight for me was when Leande sang to Martin during the reception. She has the most beautiful voice and I don’t think there was a dry eye in the place. The dance moves at this wedding was also some of the best I have ever seen.
Leande and Martin are such a perfect match and I have no doubt this will last forever.
Thank you so much for picking me to photograph your special day. I loved getting to know you, and photographing you two was such a pleasure!
Thank you Lenton Kapp for ...
Merike and Marcel Val De Vie
Article Summary: There are just no words to describe how absolutely magnificent Marcel & Merike’s wedding was at the gorgeous venue at Val De Vie. Firstly, shooting at Val De Vie is a photographers dream having a white canvas, big open spaces, polo fields and horses. Then to add the stunning decor and flowers from N Concepts and Design just finished it off perfectly. It had such a soft, romantic and timeless feel.
Marcel & Merike are the most wonderful people, who I met for the first time during a fun night out at Caprice in Cape Town, and we just hit it off. Merike is one of the most gorgeous women I have ever met with the prettiest smile, and she is such a beautiful soul! Marcel is a Springbok rugby player and also plays for the Bulls, but has a real soft side to him. They make the perfect couple!
I loved working with all the wonderful suppliers at this wedding!
Thank you Marcel & Merike for choosing me to photograph your magnificent wedding. I feel so blessed to have shared this ...
Anneke and Heinrich Florence Guest Farm

“I was so excited to photograph Anneke & Heinrich’s wedding at Florence Guest Farm. Not only is Florence Guest Farm one of my favourite venues, but this couple is drop dead gorgeous to say the very least! When I met with them the first time we just connected so well, and I knew this was going to be a wedding I would never forget.
When I arrived at the venue on Friday and saw all the decor they had made I felt as thought I had stepped into Pinterest. Anneke had made everything herself,including most of the decor and flowers, she even made her mom and bridesmaids handbags!! So much detail and effort went into this wedding, I was blown away! Thankfully she had wonderful bridesmaids and family members who helped out a lot.
Anneke is so creative and has such impeccable taste that I have no doubt she will be a huge success in her new venture as interior decorator! Heinrich used to be a professional 1500m runner for SA, so we had tons in common and it was ...

“Michelle (from Make-up By Michelle) and I drove to Florence Guest Farm on a Friday morning to go and photograph Anneke’s boudoir shoot the day before her wedding. I knew it was going to be a gorgeous shoot, but I wasn’t prepared for how stunning it actually was…
Anneke, you are the most gorgeous woman inside and out! If I could photograph you every day I would be the happiest photographer alive!
Thank you and Heinrich for allowing us to share some of these pictures! xo”

Laura Leigh Photography - Paige & Rev Hartford House, Midlands
Article Summary: Laura Leigh wrote:
“When I first met Paige and Rev and they told me they were getting married at Hartford House I was over the moon as this is one of my favorite venues. . It is the most beautiful venue on a stud farm, and you feel as though you are in the middle of no where! It is pure bliss, especially if you love horses! Besides from the magnificent venue I was so excited to photograph this couple – I mean look at them!? I don’t think one can take a bad pic of these two!”
“Their special day was definitely blessed for so many reasons! They were having an outdoor ceremony, but because it was raining cats and dogs the coordinator made the call that we would have to move it inside. The staff moved everything into the chapel and then all of a sudden the rain stopped and we had clear skys, so everything was moved back outside. It is so special as the outdoor ceremony is surrounded by Cherry Blossoms which was Paige’s granny’s favourite”.

Article Summary: Tash’s Kitchen Tea Buitengeluk
Laura Leigh wrote:
“Tash’s kitchen tea was held at the gorgeous Buitengeluk venue in Broadacres. It was such a treat to photograph! I walked into the gorgeous gardens at Buitengeluk to be surrounded by all the beautiful decor the bridesmaids had put together for her, they even put up a swing!
The bridesmaids had a whole bunch of games for Tash to play, along with some Q&A to see how well her groom knew her and they scored almost 100%!!
It was so lovely to see all these ladies coming together to share such a special day. If this is the amount of effort they put into a kitchen tea I can’t wait to see what the wedding will be like”.
