Sorry y'all but I am going to make this a short post (Oh, how you'll miss my great wit, right?!), but things are just chaos on my end, a longer post will probably mean another two weeks of not posting.
I am not sure why, but there is something about a 'Friday' wedding that seems to make it a little more special to me. I feel like... it's kind of a secret wedding, the only one on a day where everyone else is at work, sitting at their desks.
Kim & Leigh exchanged their vows at Casalinga and had their reception at Hakunamatata...a really unique affair!!
I'm trying to finalise Anne and Warwick's wedding pic's......Yep, that behind!! Found this little "beaut" taken by Chantal Madgwick, my second shooter on the day. Too Cute!
Things that make me smile . . . DJ Vlokkie (and his groupies), glittering disco balls, a club called 'Night Fever', Jake the wedding co-ordinator and a ceremony overlooking Pongolapoort Dam.
Trevor and Vivien chose Pongola Game Reserve as their wedding venue - and, what a spectacular setting it was. Guests were treated to a sunset cruise on the dam, whilst we drove around the game reserve sipping champagne and occasionally snapping a few pics of the newly weds.... Oh! (raise right hand to forehead and insert sigh) What a tough job I have!
Trevor and Vivien are just made for the camera - I could photograph them all day! They actually remind me a little of Kevin Costner and Katie Homes, my first celebrity wedding in the bush!
Alas, no long write up, as I will really fall short in describing what was a truly enchanting weekend. Thank you to the both of you for being so hospitable. Without further ado, here they are ....more than usual I am afraid, but we were spoilt with two hours for the portraits.
Browsing through the multitude of "creatives" and attempting to a select a few for this post I found myself saying: "Gosh, Gill is lucky to have so many wonderful images from the creatives" and then I realised, hang on a moment, she actually isn't just lucky - she deserves each and every WOW shot.
As brides go, there really aren't too many of Gill's ilk. After a typical Highveld thunderstorm, she was not only prepared to walk through the muddy aftermath, but also venture into some very prickly and wet veld to get these... So I take my hat off to Gill... Girl, you're thoroughly worthy of these! And, I am sure you will agree, they were worth every muddy, drenched and prickly moment!
