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...

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.

During the speeches, I think it was Anuschka's dad who happened to mention that all the precious and important people in their lives were present at Auschka's and Richard's wedding.


And it always fascinates me the sheer number of moments that can be documented in just one day. 

 

Surrounded by people that they love; energetic kids running everywhere; a flower girl playing in a fountain with her bouquet; the chaos of putting everything together; the quiet and tender moments reading love notes; the tears; the laughter and the joy..... it's all the things that weddings are made of and I'm totally thrilled that Anuschka and Richard allowed me to capture theirs.

Forgive me readers, as I know you've been waiting to see some more weddings, but, it's the busy season at the moment, which means that I have neglected the blog a little.

 
I recently had the pleasure of photographing Natalie's and Rashaad's wedding and if I'm to be totally honest, the one single episode that flashes to mind from their ceremony, almost like one of those facts you find on a Chappie wrapper, is that "in over 50 years James Bond has sex 64 times." 


Nothing poignant, I know, nothing romantic.   Then again, anyone who was at the wedding will recall the animated sermon that was delivered by their minister, Andrew Christie, which was filled with meaningful advice, spiced up with anecdotes and unforgettably appropriate wit.   And just like the 007 excerpt, that I know will stay with me for years to come, their day was truly one to remember.
 
Natalie had hired me because she'd wanted a true, documentary-style coverage of their big day, as it unfolded, with not too many posed photographs.

Their energy, Rashaad's wicked sense of humour, their love, their gorgeous daughter, plus their amazing family and friends made documenting it in a relaxed manner all too easy. Thank you, Natalie and Rashaad....and now the pictures;

It has been a wee bit hectic this past fortnight and I've a lot of editing and blogging to catch up on, but, I can't wait to share all the incredible weddings I've photographed recently. 

So without further ado, let's jump straight into it with Janie and Jaco.

 

As I was driving home from Janie's and Jaco's ceremony, it dawned upon me that whenever I pick up my camera to shoot a wedding, I am always completely surrounded by ceaseless throngs of wholesome love and laughter - my job being merely to capture it all and at the end, someone hands me a pay cheque.  What can I say?  I would say that is a pretty good deal☺.

 

Janie's and Jaco's day was just that: a day engulfed in pure love, unabashedly fantastic people and oodles of good cheer.  One of those days when, from the very start, you just know it's going to be an excellent one and you also know, no matter how hard you try, you won't have sufficient words to describe it.

 

.... and finally, some images from their absolutely perfect day.

My internet and emails are down L

I am trying to get through it all with visits to the local internet cafe and via my Blackberry, I may however, be a little slower than usual with my responses. I should be up and running in a couple of days.
