On Saturday the 27th of July I had the honour of photographing 2 amazing young men and their beautiful dates before their Matric dance at Penryn College. We went to the Nelspruit Botanical Garden to take the photographs before hand and it was such a beautiful warm winters day. When I saw everyone all dressed up it reminded me of my Matric dance and what a special evening it is partying and dancing in style with all your friends for possibly the last time ever.
The two men had arranged two amazing cars – a black Porsche and a red Morgan Roadster V6. They definitely added to the elegance and class of each couple. The families also arrived – the pride in their eyes watching their children looking all grown up and breathtakingly beautiful and handsome was priceless.
I decided to go up to the school (my old school) to document the arrival of the couples and sneak a few decor pics ;-). The theme was Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The organisers did an AMAZING job !!! The had a Willy Wonka lab on the one side filled with bright coloured testubes and equations for new yummy candies. On the other side of the room was the kitchen where the candies became reality. They had a huge bright coloured chandelier hanging in the middle of the room and sweet table to finish it all off. It looked like it was going to be a great party!
