On this rather blustery Friday afternoon, I've decided to take you on a journey to Dullstroom, where Amy's and Duncan's upmarket farm-style ceremony was held.
Not being a fan of humdrum routine, I find that one of the most agreeable and rewarding perks of wedding photography
is that your "office" miraculously transforms itself with each event - from farms to barns and from private gardens to a boat no less, which is perfect for the wandering photographer that I've become ;-).
Amy and Duncan pronounced their I-Dos at the Silver Sixpence, in Dullstroom. By any true measure of par-excellence, the Silver Sixpence is an absolutely striking little venue that I hadn't ever set foot in, let alone had the opportunity to photograph. '
In spite of the occasional drizzle and nip in the air, it was a glorious and carefree day set in the rural heartland of Mpumalanga, where all their guests could enjoy the outdoor games, take in the picturesque scenery and, on the whole, have a pleasurable and entertaining day.
Thank you so much, Amy and Duncan, for being so easy-going, for enduring the drizzly, cold weather at the end of our shoot and in particular, for making me smile every time I think of you two and your wedding day.
I was tempted to Photoshop out the raindrops on Duncan' jacket - Yes, Í do realize they"have a very close resemblance to bird "blessings" of good luck ;-) but if I eliminated them I would have erased the memory of the rain that fell just after we finished with the Portrait shoot...a memory I would want to keep.
