Just a quick little post to wish you all the best for the rest of your holidays, and wishing you and your family a cracking 2013!
I will be spending the next coulple of days with my family and I'll see you back here in January with some special wedding posts.
I am now on a roll. I have finally finished my Christmas shopping and about to begin my edit-a-thon, but for now let's brighten up this blog with something special: Mena's and Neil's corker of a wedding.
During the getting ready part of the day, Mena happened to assure me that Neil wouldn't cry throughout the ceremony, but when crunch time came (yes, you guessed it), there were uncontrollable tears, excited beaming smiles, emotional embraces and kisses - quite simply, just perfect.
What I love, and what makes it all the more interesting, is that each and every couple has a different tale to tell; each has their own consummate individuality and quirks, which makes them and their day singularly unique.
For this big occasion, Mena provided the speechless beauty and Neil the unimpeachable charisma. Into this flawless recipe, add astonishingly moody skies courtesy of Gauteng's rather wet and rainy December this year.... and me? Well, I just pointed the camera and fired away.
Oh, and did I mention that as an extra indulgence, Mena's and Neil's guests treated us to some rather fancy Gangnam-style footwork ;-)
Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead and enjoy the sneak peak ... and off to Lightroom I go.
...isn't technology awesome, sometimes.
And last but not least, thank you Karin for the beautiful blooms, they really did brighten up my home.

Just one image, whilst I prepare the next wedding post.
No wedding today, playing catch up today.
I cannot express how much I adore this one single frame.
I was supposed to share this wedding with you a couple of days ago, but unfortunately, there were some gremlins that had infiltrated my blog.
At any rate, here are some snippets from Mankoana's and Nzuzo's elegant ceremony.
Their day? It was sublime.
Pink and purple balloons. A slight breeze to cool off another blistering summer day, a laidback, stylish bride and a groomsman's dance routine that didn't quite go 100% according to plan J but, a second-take stint towards the end of the evening was the perfect conclusion to a magnificent day.
A breathtaking occasion - thank you, Mankoana and Nzuzo.
Sit back and enjoy, and leave a little love, either here or on my Facebook Page.
