Lloyd & Lauren’s beautiful wedding day

I first met Lloyd and Lauren when I did their engagement shoot (see their photos here) and I got to like them immediately. They are so much fun with the best sense of humor … so needless to say… I really looked forward to their wedding day!

They said their “I-do’s” this past Saturday at the beautiful Boskey Dell’s Rose Pavilion, one of my most favourite venues! The weather wasn’t perfect and very unpredictable … At times it wat raining, at times it was sunny and at times it was raining while the sun was shining, but nothing could ruin their perfect day.

Thank you so much for having Jaco, myself and Adele at your wedding L&L! You guys were amazing and I know you will have a beautiful life together!
Lots of love

Darryl and Anne’s Natures Valley Farm Wedding

Darryl and Anne and their lovely close-nit families celebrated their love on Anne’s family farm in Natures Valley past weekend.

Darryl works on the Wilson family farm and together with Anne’s dad and now his new dad-in-law, he built their wedding shed with his own hands… good job Darryl! You worked hard for Anne!
And everything came together so beautifully in the end!

I loved all the personal touches to this wedding… Anne getting ready in the old farm house where she grew up, of course I loved working with all the old ‘farmy’ elements and textures. Anne’s sisters and mom being so involved in the wedding, doing the flowers, make-up and stunning wedding cake, with their doggies, Chase and their new baby Border Collie as toppings. And most of all the inquisitive cows next to the shed, with the beautiful scenery as a backdrop.

Thank you D&A for having me at your wedding! May you have a wonderful life together and grow old on this gorgeous farm!

Lots of love

Welcome to the wedding of Miles & Carla.

These are two extraordinary people and their wedding just reminded me again of how lucky I am to get to do what I do… Love is such a beautiful thing and the fact that it gets celebrated by family and friends makes it even more beautiful. Promises made in front of God, promises to love and respect, through good times and bad… and I get to be a witness to these sacred moments. I feel so blessed.
