About Me

I am a mother of three boys (three boys, being punished for my sins!) and have been a fan of photography for years. I started shooting weddings seriously about five years ago. With the arrival of my twins, I decided to reduce my working hours in order to spend more time at home with my boys. Using photography to make up for the loss of income was a natural progression.

This is where you will be able to catch regular excerpts of what I am up to...

From what I understand, it started out as a 1920's themed wedding and soon evolved into a delightful converse themed affair.


In fact, not only was Isabelle's and Emile's impeccable small-breakfast wedding just so idyllically suited to them, it also had Lisa and I swooning and sighing all day long.


It really was a "non-wedding" wedding, if that makes sense,  and the ambiance was more akin to an everyday gathering of family and friends - although on this occasion, of course, they were uniting for a celebration that was to encapsulate Isabelle's and Emile's LOVE for each other.


I hope you both enjoy the preview and that Namibia was fab.  


Our deepest gratitude to you both for allowing us to spend the perfect day with you!

April 10, 2012 // Children / Personal

It's been one of those extra-long weekends, with a whirlwind of childrens' activities that involved a kidnapped Easter bunny, a night egg hunt and countless scores of Easter eggs, so waking up this morning and getting back to the PC needed a huge dose of caffeine in order to get a kick-start for the day.

Hope you had a good one, no matter how you celebrated this long weekend.

Lisa and I were standing outside the venue, watching the merrymaking in full swing, sipping our chardonnay, reflecting on the day's weather, the people's expressions, the cute stuttered vows and those quaint offbeat moments.   We both sighed and nodded our heads in agreement - yes, this is what epitomises a marriage ceremony.


There are couples who quite simply remind you of what it's all about.   Couples who share a genuine connection that you can't help but be moved by.   Most of all, couples with whom you can freely have a hoot and laugh in their presence.  That is Anna and Robbie.


While the rain did arrive and abandoned any hope of the intended beach ceremony, Anna never stopped smiling.   In fact, Anna getting dressed was one of the most relaxing and fun vibes I've walked into for a long time.

Thank you Lady and Lord Cornwall, we had a "cracking time"!!

Good day,

My brother is getting married on the 18th of January 2014 at the Estuary Hotel in Port Edward.
Can you please send me quotes on the different types of packages that you have?

The wedding will be a very small but intimate wedding (30 delegates).

Thanks so much!!

I wanted to find out whether you are working between Xmas and the New Year, or when are you starting again after the New Year. I am from Jhb but I will be there with my whole family during the Xmas Hols and was thinking of having some family photos taken, as my daughter who lives in England will be leaving by the 6/01/15.

I failed to attend the chaos caused by the mischievous leprechauns at our home on Saturday morning, because I was on my way to the airport.  However, just before I was due for take-off, I 'phoned home and, without catching a single breath, the boys didn't spare any details as to the extent of the mess the little trolls had made. 

So, because I missed St Paddy's day with the boys, we decided to hire a waterslide and celebrate the milestone today; not least because it was a public holiday. . . and, no, we are not Irish.

The St Patrick's Day printables were downloaded from Love the Day Designs and the Leprachaun treasure hunt, which was a huge hit amoungst the short guests, from Green Lilly Designs.
