James & Nicole’s wedding at Boskey Dell

James & Nicole said their “I do’s” on a lovely summer’s day at the beautiful Rose Pavilion on the Boskey Dell farm outside of Plettenberg bay. It is no secret that the Rose Pavilion is one of my all-time favourite venues! I also had the pleasure of working with DP Ferreira from Ecozest, he did a fantastic job with carrying out their celestial theme. The ladies from Nguni did the caterering for the delicious meze feast! May the two of you be very happy and blessed!
Love Michelle

Marius & Katherine’s rainy day wedding

Marius & Katherine celebrated their love this past Saturday at The Views Hotel in Wilderness. It was a rainy day, but not even this could upset them. Katherine looked like a Greek goddess… thank you make-up artist Wilna Allpass, for showing off this girl’s incredible beauty!
We got some gorgeous shots filled with emotion, as Marius came to kiss Katherine’s hand, around a corner, before making her his wife…
Their ceremony was beautiful and their personal vows to each other bought a tear to my eye… no really!
Marius & Kath, your love is so special. Treasure it and protect it!
Lots of love
Michelle

Steven & Amanda’s stylish Jewish wedding in Plett

I just LOVED LOVED LOVED being a part of this gorgeous couple’s wedding! Steven & Amanda are from New York, but Amanda enjoyed her holidays as a little child in Plett at the Beacon Isle Hotel, and that is why she came back all the way to get married right there!
They celebrated their wedding in traditional Jewish style. After they met on the rocks for the first time as bride and groom, they signed the Ketubah and Steven covered Amanda’s face with her veil, acknowledging that she is his bride, called the bedeken. Then they promised their love to each other under the beautiful floral chuppah at their ceremony and enjoyed delicious canapés with their guests before starting their reception. Once they entered their reception the party started and it never stopped! I found myself dancing a few times, while young and old rocked it on the dance floor!
Steven & Amanda… Be blessed!
Lots of love
Michelle

Service providers:
Jana & Xan from Confeti was the incredible organisers of this stunning event
Pippa did their gorgeous flowers
Karin Chan worked her magic with Amanda’s hair and make-up

Hans & Anna trou in die reén

Ek het vir Hans & Anna beter leer ken toe ek hulle engagement shoot ‘n hele rukkie gelede gedoen het. Hulle is sulke interessante mense. Anna kom van Belarus (maar kan skelmpies Afrikaans verstaan… daarom skryf ek in Afrikaans;)En Hans is van SA. Hulle bly in die UK en travel die wéreld.
Anna was ‘n bubbly, bohemian beauty, bouncing bride (verskoon my taalgebruik Hans!)
Hans sé hy het al gehoor van “blushing” en “glowing” bruide, maar nog nooit van ‘n “bouncing bride” nie… en dit was presies wat Anna was. Sy het op en afgespring van opwinding!
En al het dit gereén op hulle troudag, was elke oomblik vir hulle perfek en net soos hulle dit wou hé.
Ons het dit so geniet om saammet julle tyd te spandeer. Dankie dat ons die dag met julle kon deel!
Liefde Michelle & Jaco

Nick & Kim… 2015 kicked off with a bang!

So the new year kicked off with a bang! I had the privilege to photograph Nick & Kim’s wedding ceremony at the spectacular Forest Hall, outside of Plett. Their reception at Kurland was planned to the finest detail by the very talented Marius, from Weddings by Marius. He did a spectacular job with the planning and the executing of their wedding, together with DP Ferreira from Ecozest, who did the beautiful flower arrangements, bouquets, the stunning nursery plant screen and much more!  I love their attention to detail and loved photographing their work.
Nick & Kim, be blessed!
Love Michelle
