Wedding – Riaan & Jen | Parys

This was my last wedding of 2015 – a beautiful hot summers day outside of the quaint city of Parys was where Riaan and Jennilee chose to say their vows. A beautiful location on the Vaal River was the most idyllic setting. It was a beautiful Wedding filled with Proteas, lace and hints of purple. Thank you to everyone for making us feel like we were apart of the family – a perfect way to end my 2015 season....

Wedding – Thomas and Emma | Rosemary Hill

Friends are the family you chose, this could not be more true. When you become friends with people more often than not you get incorporated into their family and what a blessing this is.

Wedding – Jaques & Raquel | Usambara Lodge

A while back this wonderful couple tied the knot on a very wet and rainy day. Raquel was the image of beauty and calm – nothing could dampen her spirits, not even the rain. She was just excited to marry the man of her dreams. As a result of the weather, I got permission from the owners of the neighbours property to use their beautiful greenhouses to do the photoshoots in. It was warm and dry and they were filled with Hibiscus flowers and daisies – just magical. The day was one of love, fun, raindrops, warm hearts and special memories. I am so glad I was able to document...

Wedding – M&M | Maropeng Hotel

What more could you want when you marry the man of your dreams than blue skies, beautiful views of the bushveld and being surrounded by friends and family. Mathew & Michelle tied the knot at the gorgeous Maropeng Hotel out where the new Homo Naledi was discovered. The beautiful hotel and surroundings could not rival Michelles radiance and beauty on the day she became a Mrs. This wonderful couple who know live in the UK celebrated in style with family and friends and it was such a joy to be able to share in their special day with all their friends and family who made us feel part of the...

Wedding – Chad & Genea | Olives & Plates

Two weeks ago I had the great privilege of photographing Chad & Geneas beautiful wedding day. When I met Genea at the beginning of the year it felt like I had found a long lost friend – her vibrancy, amazing energy and beauty was inspiring and her laugh was contagious. I could not wait to capture their special day. Genea got ready at the beautiful Winston Hotel in Rosebank – the most incredible boutique hotel with wonderful charm and the perfect spot for photos 🙂 Geneas mom made her dress – yes you heard right, that beautiful lace dress was hand made by her mom – amazing. This Wedding is...

Wedding – Josh & Justine | Casalinga

Fairytales do exist! They are not just in the movies or in our imagination. How do I know this? Joshua and Justine are evidence that your soul mate is out there somewhere in the world. Josh and Justine met online via a “pen pal” website. He lived in the United States and she lives in South Africa. After months of staying up late to talk and Skype (due to the time difference) Josh flew out to South Africa to meet Justine. Nervously waiting at international arrivals at the airport – Justine and Josh only had eyes for each other as he walked through the sliding doors to meet the love...

Wedding – Andrew & Jessica | Black Horse Brewery

Two weeks ago I had the great honour of capturing Andrew and Jessicas’ beautiful Wedding at Black Horse Brewery in Magaliesberg. The day before the wedding it was cold and rainy however Saturday brought with it sunny skies with a few drops of rain before the ceremony . This rain made for the most magical light (perfect for our photos 🙂 ) it was truly the most wonderful day. Andrew and Jessica are a perfect pair, the love between the two is the love that fairy tales are built on. I loved that both Jessica and Andrew sent each other little hand written letters and gifts, to the song that...

Wedding – Justin & Rentia | Emoyeni

Justin & Rentia are two of the most down to earth people you will ever meet and I was lucky enough to get to know them on their engagement shoot (click here to see their photos). I knew their wedding would be one filled with family, friends, laughter and smiles and I was not wrong. Midway through the ceremony mother nature showed us that she was in control and the heavens opened pouring down with rain. This could not dampen this beautiful couples spirit – they were just happy they were married and today was their wedding day. We managed to have a 10 minute gap of no rain to...

Katrina is expecting a little boy soon and her first born stood at the front of the aisle watching his beautiful mother walk down the aisle. This wedding was all about love and joining two people together to form their own family. Thank you so much for allowing me to capture this special day for you...

Wedding – Matthew & Simone | Alberton

Towards the end of last year I had the wonderful opportunity of meeting Simone and Matthew and capturing their special day. Matthew and Simone met at church and their romance has blossomed into a wonderful friendship and relationship. Simones laugh is contagious and she looked beautiful in a sweet heart boob tube wedding dress. The boys all wore their super hero shirts under their button up shirts (just in case someone needed saving ;-)) Simone loves bright colours and her bridesmaids had beautiful pops of colour with their shoes, sashes and bouquets. It was a day filled with laughter and love. Thank you to everyone for including us in the...

Wedding – Peter and Bukelwa | Idle Winds

Wood, Idle Winds, Johannesburg, Wedding, Photographer, African American, Natural, Bird cage vale

At the end of last year, I photographed the beautiful wedding of Bukelwa to Peter at Idle Winds, just north of Jo’burg. Bukelwa is from the Eastern Cape and Peter is from Zimbabwe and they now live in London. They decided to come to South Africa to celebrate their union with friends and family, and what a celebration it turned out to be! Thankfully the rain stayed away just long enough, but regardless, nothing was going to stop the party from carrying on into the night. Although having been married for quite a while, they hadn’t had a big party to celebrate with all their special friends. This was an...

Wedding – Suvashna and Deepak | Hyatt Rosebank

Bride and groom, couple photo, hindu wedding, outfit, Johannesburg photographer, South Africa, beautiful photos

Finally the day arrived – Suvashna and Deepak’s wedding day. They got married at the beautiful and elegant Hyatt hotel, in Rosebank. Su looked absolutely breathtaking in her red bridal outfit and Deepak very handsome in his traditional regalia, fully equipped down to the “Aladdin” shoes! It was amazing to see how both families were so involved in all of the ceremonies. I love this symbolism of unity as a marriage is also the joining of two families, not only the bride and groom. I am so glad that the weather behaved itself on the day, as part of the ceremony included the traditional lighting of a fire. I am...

I always jump at the chance to work with Jeanette Verster. I learn so much and she always has great clients 🙂 This wedding was no exception.

The decor and flowers were so beautiful – I especially loved the dusty pink roses. Due to the fact that the wedding was on a Monday we had the use of the whole venue. We went up to the Stables and met some of the local residents 🙂 the horses were very keen on getting in on the...

Wedding – Clinton and Angi | Moon and Sixpence

On Saturday I assisted Jeanette Verster at a wedding at Moon and Sixpence in Muldersdrift. Clinton and Angi are from South Africa but now live in the States. They got married last year in the States however they wanted to have a celebration with all their family and friends back home in South Africa. They combined their wedding celebrations with a dedication to their beautiful little boy. It was a lovely addition to have this gorgeous little boy part of the ceremony. It was pretty cold but a photographers dream with beautiful, moody, cloudy sky’s and gorgeous light. Angi and Clinton were so relaxed and they laughed and smiled all day...

Wedding – Andrew and Lauren at Buitengeluk

Laughing bridal couple on a couch, Palazzo Hotel, Fun Wedding photographs

The 9th of June 2012 –  the day Andrew and Lauren mark the beginning of their married live together. Even though it was the coldest weekend that Johannesburg had experienced the whole year, it didn’t dampen the spirits of the couple and their loved ones as they all still enjoyed  the celebration together. Despite the cold it was a beautiful intimate wedding to celebrate the start of their marriage. I loved their simple décor with each table being decorated with one type of flower. Lauren prepared for her day at the Palazzo Hotel, at Monte Casino, the ceremony was held at the Bryanston Catholic Church with the reception at Buitengeluk,...
