They met at "268 Staines" in London....and guests travelled from all over the world to see a South African by the name of "Sparky" exchange vows with a "Scandanavian Goddess" by the name of Eva.
The venue was perfect......the weather..... almost tooooo perfect (for a photographer) and our couple were ......well.....just perfect! Eva and Matt were incredibly lucky to get a dramatic African Backdrop (with no rain!) to compliment their simple, yet unique day.
A day that was filled with emotion, laughs .......and guests with nicknames, that, alone would warrant a post! Shawn the Prawn, Big Dog, Rick Baby-Cakes, Buggy...I won't go on! Once again I was honoured to have Dror Eyal shoot with me and, between the two of us, we got some pretty cool stuff.
Eva and Matt you both ROCK! Thank you so much for having us at your wedding. I am glad we were both available! Here you are, a sneak peak... For those that want to know.....I can see it at a glance...obviously! The "masters" shots are ...middle pic in 1, 6, 7, 10, 15 and 16 . On another note, I found out, recently, one of my couples, Gen and Greg, has been nominated for "Wedding of the Year" at Oakfield Farm - you have my vote guys!!....although I have it on the "QT" that we are up against a "second shooter" I often use....no names this time!
Liezl and Michael are the kind of couple that absolutely make me love what I do. What a fabulous wedding.....with so many details. Liezl designed everything from the table cards, the name badges, the cards on the "sweet" counter etc.....so many spectacular details!
So talented is Liezl that she even made her own dress, bought the fabric in white and was brave enough to dye it! I reakon she would have taken the pics herself if it was physically possible!
The reception took place on a boat at Stonehaven and the sun played its role by lighting up the river with it's sunset! Michael and Liezl all I can say is.....let your love shine through as it will keep you together forever! I knew Liezl wanted great pics, by the thousands upon thousands of links on wedding photography she emailed through, so worked the couple a little harder than most...but I think that the pics speak for themselves...thanks for your patience Michael!
Last weekend Tanja and I got up at 4am (...Yip! no typo here 4am in the morning!) and travelled to Clarens. Situated in the foothills of the Maluti Mountains....The Golden Gate National Park was the venue of our last wedding.
The tranquil ambience combined with the scenic views made for a spectacular backdrop for Liza and David's wedding. You may remember the couple from their enagagement session...and I must admit that since then I have been excited for a couple of reasons....one they are naturals infront of the camera & interact as if they were on their own and secondly I have been looking forward to shooting in Clarens. Liza was brought up on a farm in Clarens and knew exactly where she wanted photographs to be taken.
Their ceremony was held outside overlooking the majestic mountains....and what an increadible view, but what stood out from the grandeur of nature was infact the "grandness" of their love. We can always tell when a couple is really and truly in love, and one thing is for sure David and Liza are really in love.
