Margaret & Pieter

Make-up & Hair: Wilna Allpass Dress: Bridal Inn Venue: La Rosa Blu What a beautiful couple. I’ve known Margaret since high-school days, and never in my wildest dreams thought that I would one day photograph her special day. There were so many familiar faces at her wedding; I had probably met 90% of the guests before. Margaret and Pieter were very relaxed, and left me to decide when and where to take their photographs. We decided to take photographs shortly after the ceremony and also moments before I left back to George. Enjoy!

Yuani & Herman

Venue: Oppi Plaas Make-up: Beula by Michelle Cake: CayC’s Cakes I met Yuani and Herman a while before their wedding when I was asked to photograph their engagement session in Wilderness. The e-session ended with us dropping Yuani off at Tramonto. This last stop was planned by her mother who wanted to take the time there and then to celebrate her bachelorette party. On the day of their wedding, the Garden Route was boiling hot, but it was not a surprise; Waboomskraal  borders on the edge of the Klein Karoo. One of the advantages of getting married at Oppi Plaas […]

Warren & Nicole

Warren & Nicole tied the knot at St Colmicilles, Kirkwood, near Addo on 26 November 2016. I them numerous times before their wedding, but not for their wedding, but as guests at friends’ of theirs who married before them. This meant that I had a chance to catch up with a few familiar faces at their wedding. Photographing a wedding in the Eastern Cape, was fun and exciting, because of the difference in scenery, open spaces and friendly people. I captured most of the couple portraits and entourage en-route to the reception (Africanos), after the ceremony. View some of the […]

Randy & Renette

The REAL DEAL. Randy and Renette Deal got married at Garden Route Game Lodge on 28 May 2016. I am sure that everyone at the wedding witnessed the love and adoration between the bride and groom – it was beautiful. It was a privilege to be the photographer responsible for capturing their special day. I bumped into Randy at two other weddings I photographed a year before their one. He told me at the wedding of Afton and André that he was really looking forward to having me capture their wedding, because he by then had seen two of his […]

Afton & Andre Wagner

This beautiful couple got married at the Riviera Hotel in Hartenbos, in the beautiful Garden Route, South Africa. I got to know Afton when she worked at Eden District Municipality, back in 2010. She left Eden to spread her wings and in the meanwhile, found the man of her dreams. André apparently drove all the way from Mossel Bay (Afton’s home town), behind Afton the day she made her final move to Johannesburg to start her career as an HR practitioner. It was a privilege for me to be the wedding photographer, trusted to capture their special day in images. […]

Caro & Etienne Bruwer

Caro and Etienne were the second couple to get married at a new venue, outside George called Olympia Estate. A nearby house was booked for Caro and her family to get ready for the wedding, Etienne and his groomsmen got ready by a golf estate in George. The weather played out perfect, Caro and Etienne were laid back and trusted me to do what I do best; capture their wedding and all the moments that they would look back at days, months and years later. The details of the reception included silver, glass and diamonds, a perfect option for the […]

Christine & Marius

Below are some of the wedding photos I captured of Christine and Marius Vermeulen at Oubaai, Voëlklip and Tramonto. I met Christine (then Hamel) in 2009 when she was a matriculant at Outeniqua High School. It was during the Mr and Ms Kwagga photoshoot where I noticed she was a natural in front of the camera. That year, she won Ms Kwagga and shortly after it enrolled at Ace Models in George. Two years went by when I received a call from her sister, asking me if I could take her wedding at Tramonto. Late in 2014, dejavu, Christine contacts […]

Netta & Charles – Le Canonnier, Mauritius

Jeanetta & Charles got married in Mauritius. They decided to keep the wedding small and intimate, only close family were invited. The weather played out perfect and we could not have asked for better service, excellent food and perfect views! The couple are originally from Storms River, the last town between the Eastern Cape and the Western Cape in South Africa. Netta & Charles extended their week long holiday, which included the wedding, with an additional one week honeymoon. Venue: Le Canonnier, Mauritius Wedding Planner: Le Canonnier staff

Erald & Mariska – Surval, Oudtshoorn

Erald and Mariska, a beautiful couple from Cape Town, traveled all the way to Oudtshoorn to tie the knot. Most of our collaboration was via the internet, but we did find time to briefly meet at Cappuccinos in George a few weeks prior to the big day. Their wedding day was flawless, perfect weather and a celebration that deservedly continued far into the morning hours!
