Rebecca Groves International Wedding and Portrait Photographer | South Africa, Cape Town

Hannah & George | Wedding | Lenham, Kent, UK

Choosing a venue for a wedding is always one of the big choices couples make. It often seems to set the tone for the memories that are made on the day. For Hannah and George, the quaint English country town in Lenham, Kent, UK was the ideal place to say their vows. Not only was it a beautiful setting for their ceremony at St Mary’s Church, but also a stunning reception was set up at Hannah’s parents residence. In fact there was much effort put in to prepare for the day, even the lawn slope was specially re-leveled to accommodate the marquee, and additional equipment shipped in to make it all happen.

Matthew & Heather | The National Liberal Club, UK

Rebecca Groves Photography

I thoroughly enjoyed photographing the wedding of Matthew and Heather in London. It was a grand occasion celebrated by many family and friends. The ceremony was held at St Martin-in-the-Fields, in Trafalgar Square – a bold and historic church building in central London. The almost angelic sounds of the church organ blending in with choir and congregants set the tone for this lovely couple to exchange their vows in the presence of their loved ones.

Vincent & Lidia | Klein Bottelary

In the beautiful valley of Klein Bottlery, in the heart of the Cape Winelands romance filled the air as Vincent & Lidia shared their vows in a picturesque, historic wine cellar. Accompanied by a skilled jazz band and an elegant and apt message from the minister, the happy couple made history on the day as they exchanged their rings.  Built in the 1800’s this wine cellar displayed the history and stories of the generations that lived there.  What a fantastic venue for anyone’s big day.

Michiel & Yolande | De Uijlenes

The anticipation of a groom waiting for his bride to walk down the aisle is one of my favorite parts of a wedding. The nerves, the excitement and then the overwhelming emotions as he sees his bride for the first time with a huge grin forming from ear to ear. Watching Michiel go through this process as he saw Yolande walking down the aisle had me all overcome with emotion!

From the first moment I met with Michiel and Yolande to speak about their day I knew this was going to be a beautiful, romantic occasion.

Every wedding I go to is so unique to each couple – and this wedding just summed Graeme & Nicola up wonderfully. Graeme & Nicola are such a fun, warm hearted couple and they had chosen certain aspects of their day to be special for them. These things included making sure the wedding was eco-friendly and included their dog, Peter, in the day.

If I had to sum up this wedding up in one word, I would definitely use (in the words of Gabrielle) the word “INCREDS!” 🙂 Everything about Ryan & Gabrielle’s wedding day had me jumping for joy – a beautiful couple, inside and out; a fabulous venue – Roodezand Farm in Tulbagh (now on my list to visit again!); charming decor (how cute is the little jar of honey for a favour!) and outstanding family and friends to celebrate the day with them.

Garth & Shelley | Round The Bend, Swellendam

Something I love is road trips…

A couple of weeks ago Nick and I jumped in the car for a road trip to Swellendam for Garth & Shelley’s wedding.

Off the beaten track, at a place called Round The Bend, right on the Breede River is where Garth & Shelley had asked family and friends to spend the weekend to celebrate their wedding with them. Round The Bend is situated right out in nature, so you feel so away from everything and so relaxed because of it.
