Gavin & Natasha – Kalmoesfontein

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2014

Gavin & Natasha had their wedding celebration at Kalmoesfontein near Wellington which is an amazing venue for a wedding with relaxed vibes and delicious food.  I could go on about the decor and everything else but am going to let you read the visual story.   Both Gavin and Natasha were beaming and beautiful and the love they share was everywhere.  Congratulations to you both and I wish you many happy years together.

Valeri & Natalia – Llandudno Beach

Saturday, February 1st, 2014

Valeri and Natalia live in Germany and chose our beautiful city as the spot to celebrate their love.    I loved Natalia’s dress and especially the pop of colour in both their outfits.  We met at the Dreamhouse Guesthouse in Hout Bay to do the legal part of the ceremony and then headed down to Llandudno Beach for the ring ceremony and some photos.   Thank you Christiane for planning another special wedding and for referring me as photographer.  To Valeri and Natalia, I wish you many happy years together.  Here are a couple of photos.

February 2014 – Say I Love You

Saturday, February 1st, 2014

We are almost through half of February and at the beginning of the year, I committed to sharing something every month that inspired me.     This month is all about love and gratitude for me.       Love it not just a feeling, love is an action……love is a choice.    There are so many cheesy sounding quotes and poems about love but when I put my mind aside for a moment and read them with my heart,  they  resonate and for that I am grateful.      To love and be loved is life’s greatest gift.   There is so much grace and connection when we allow love.  So I leave you with “I Love You” and I invite you to say the same each time you are tempted to say just one more thing.

Katharina & Christian

Thursday, January 30th, 2014

Christian proposed to Katharina in Cape Town a  year ago and so it was the perfect place to come back to with their family and close friends to celebrate their special day.   I met everyone at the beautiful  Acorn House in Oranjezicht where the legal part of the ceremony took place.  We then enjoyed some decadent chocolate cake and drinks before heading down to Oudekraal Beach for the ring ceremony.     Before leaving, Katharina changed into her “surprise” dress – you looked so beautiful.  The weather held out for us until just before sunset when the rain came down and we then moved on to have dinner at The Roundhouse in Camps Bay.  I enjoyed meeting you all and wish you both a very happy and blessed life together.  Here are a couple of photos to tell the story of your special day.

January 2014 – Stay Positive

Monday, January 13th, 2014

A new year has started and with it comes new opportunities.  I must admit, that this new year filled me with mixed feelings as we started a new year without Simon here in person.    Every morning I wake up, I make the choice to be grateful for the day, so when I got a parcel in the mail the other day from my beautiful sister, Leilani, who lives in New Zealand, I just loved the Marci calendar she sent me.   It has an inspiring message for each month which I will share with everyone.  For January, the message is – Stay Positive – Oftentimes our path seems to be filled with roadblocks, and we wonder why life is so difficult.  Things happen that leave us feeling as though we have little control over our circumstances.  This is a time to remember that hope is a gift we can give to ourselves……When we choose this attitude and tap into our inner reserves, we are rewarded with the knowledge of what we have learned in life.  The decision to look forward, stay positive and remain hopeful is a key that unlocks the door to possibilities, and, when shared, returns to renew the spirit.  Hope is believing that miracles are possible!

Georgina & Rob

Tuesday, January 7th, 2014

Georgina and Rob celebrated their special day in Hermanus at her parent’s beautiful home.   The house was completely transformed by the Petals team who did an amazing job.  Georgina & Rob wanted to have moments captured naturally with minimal posing and fussing which is how I love to work.    We did most of the “formal” family shots before the ceremony so they could spend time with all the guests after the ceremony – this seemed to work really well.   The vibe was informal and everyone there had a great time – Me & Mr Brown made sure the dance floor was packed – well done guys!    Congratulations to you both and here is your story, enjoy.

Monique & Werner

Sunday, January 5th, 2014

What a fun wedding.  It was an adventure from the start.  The minister and I met Johan who is Werner’s brother at the Yacht Club in Langebaan to be taken across the lagoon to Monique & Werner on their houseboat and then we headed to shore where the ceremony took place.   Thank you sand sharks for not being under our feet.   It was a very intimate ceremony with only Monique & Werner’s children there with them.   Congratulations to you both – wishing you a happy and adventurous life together with lots of laughs and fun times.  Enjoy your photos.

Kimberley & Mark – Beloftebos

Friday, December 20th, 2013

Congratulations to you both and thank you for asking me to photograph your special day.   Everything about the day was beautiful, the bride, the groom, the venue, the decor, the food, the music and the family and friends there to celebrate with them.  On the day, I met Kim and her bridesmaids where they were getting ready in Hermanus to get some photos of Kim and Mark’s four-legged children – Toast and Frankie with Kim.  Everyone there seemed very relaxed and then from there we headed to the venue, Beloftebos which is just outside Stanford.    So much thought and planning had gone into every little detail and the day flowed with perfect ease and love all around.   There were lots of laughs, delicious food,  great tunes and some impressive pirate dance moves.  I wish you both a happy happy life together.  Enjoy your pics.
