Candice & Miguel @ Hidden Valley Wine Estate

Once again we were blessed to be photographing another awesome young couple and we really had a fantastic afternoon and evening with Candice and Miguel. It was my first time out at Hidden Valley and true to all that I had  heard, including from the Bride & Groom it was a very nice venue. With one of the top chefs in the country the food was always going to be special and the finesse that went into the preparation was impressive to say the least. Bertus is a true culinary artist. The day was expertly handled by the events  coordinator, and I have to say the staff  and waitrons were of the best that Ive ever experienced at a venue.

We had an amazing amount of time to photograph the couple, no mad rushing to finish up and this resulted in a very relaxed afternoon and lots of time to move around and get plenty of photographs 🙂 They were really relaxed and this always helps me to capture the day in the way that I enjoy to photograph .

I wish the happy couple all the best for their future together and thank you for allowing us the privilege to be part of this special day.

Here are a few teasers from the day.

Thanks to Alex for the assistance and second shooting

Chanel & Ben’s Wedding (Black Marlin Simonstown)

This is what I really love about being a wedding photographer, meeting awesome people. Chanel and Ben are one of the nicest couples we have worked with, just down to earth good  people, and along with a splendid bunch of friends and family it has to be a winner of a day. Other than a bit of wind the day was perfect and we got to shoot at one of my now favorite locations. Here are a few photographs of the day.

I wish Ben and Chanel a wonderfull life together.

Thanks to my trusty 2nd Alex for capturing some great 2nd angle shots and for the assistance.

The Wedding of Loyde & Wilhelm (@ The Oaks Greyton)

This was the first time Ive been to The Oaks in Greyton, and what a stunning venue. The farm dating back to the late 1700’s took 4 years to renovate and has been beautifully restored. There is accomodation available as well for those who wish to stay over. Certainly one of the most picturesque venues Ive attended and it was an awesome venue for photographs.

We arrived early morning to meetup with Loyde and then off to Greyton town to the NG Kerk where Wilhelm’s father held the ceremony.  After the ceremony the guests were treated to pancakes at the local market across the street, a completely novel idea . Back to the farm where the reception was held in a beautifully rustic setting.

One thing I do enjoy about day weddings is that theres no rush for photographs, and we went out late afternoon for a relaxed walk around the farm area, luckily the rain was intermittant .

To Loyde and Wilhelm , all the best for your future together we enjoyed every minute of the day with you 🙂

Here is a sneak peak from the day.
