Sazi & Daisy celebrated their union as husband & wife at the idyllic Thornbirds Centre in Johannesburg with a splendor of purple & lavender. I’ve been eager for their wedding ever since we captured their engagement photoshoot last year (click here to view their engagement photoshoot at Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens). One of my favourite memories of their day was how much everyone enjoyed themselves, almost all the guests were on the dancefloor by the end of the evening! It was a happy & beautiful celebration of two people that are perfect for each other.

Anja & Eon are a match made in heaven! I loved working with these two amazing people – they’re the ultimate proof that beauty is more than skin deep. These high school sweethearts tied the knot on the 28th of March 2015 at Three Rivers Lodge in Vereeniging. Anja & Eon looked amazing; I love that Anja found her gorgeous dress only five days before the wedding – it’s a true reflection of who they are as a couple: laidback, fun and spontaneous. There were so many precious DIY details at their wedding; their hard work and planning paid off and their wedding day was a blast & a true celebration of them as a couple.

Charlene & Willem’s wedding day was one of the highlights of my year! This couple and their guests were some of the nicest people I’ve ever had the opportunity to work with. They made us feel right at home in their beautiful town, Piet Retief (click here to view their engagement photoshoot that was also captured in their hometown). Charlene & Willem said their vows on the 7th of February 2015 at a chapel in town that has special sentimental value to them and their reception took place at Charlene’s old school.

The look and feel of their wedding day was rustic/vintage – they had so many creative & handmade decor ideas, I love the apple and pear shapes made from books! Also, the kneeling pillows used during the ceremony was Charlene’s grandparents wedding kneeling pillows from 59 years ago! The couple’s newlywed photo session was almost cut short after a thunderstorm started, but luckily there was no rain at the reception venue and we were able to take some beautiful shots in the forest plantations.

Thomas & Aimee’s wedding was the PERFECT wedding to end off 2014 – it was a photographer’s dream day to capture and I adore this couple to bits. They were obviously made for each other – they complement each other in every way possible and were such amazing people to work with. The month of their wedding we also covered their engagement session, have a look at it here: Aimee & Thomas Bicycle Themed Engagement Photoshoot. They said their vows on the 14th of December 2014 in the most beautiful town, Tzaneen, in Limpopo. Their decor was filled with personal touches – because they live in Rotterdam in the Netherlands together and this means lots of travelling by bicycles, they also brought in a subtle bicycle theme on their wedding day. They kept their guests to the minimum, which ensured an intimate and festive feel and Kings Walden Garden Manor was the perfect venue to host their celebration. There are so many things that I love about their wedding (the gin bar for example is such a great idea!), so instead of listing them, I’ll just trust the photos to tell the story :)

Sammy & Shaun said their vows on the 29th of November 2014 at the always majestic, Kiepersol Wedding Village, in Parys, Free State. Their day was a true reflection of their relationship as a couple: filled with elegant, graceful touches whilst still having a very comfortable ambience. Even the loadshedding during the reception went almost unnoticed – these two and their guests would not let anything stop them from celebrating their most precious day. It was an amazing fairytale day and I’m thrilled we could be a part of it!
