The world is fast becoming a smaller place. I say this because in capturing weddings I get the privilege to hear stories of each couple and I cannot help but notice how so many love stories can be traced from various corners of the globe.

Pieter spent some of his childhood in Europe, and moved back with his family to South Africa, where he met Samantha, so their wedding day was an international affair.

Pieter & Samantha chose to have their wedding at the stunning venue of 401 Rozendal. With this rustic backdrop, the stage was set for a beautiful day with a jovial spirit and a sense of celebration of Pieter & Samantha’s union.

Thomas Merton the poet once penned the words,

“Love is our true destiny. We do not find love on our own, we find it with another”

And what a privilege it was to capture something of this love story – a love that brought a union together from east and west, and a wedding day that will long be remembered. A day that was full of music and poetry, love and laughter. And as the fresh spring buds on the trees showed new life two hearts were celebrating their union.

Robert & Erika decided to have their wedding at the lovely Hathersage in Somerset West, a beautiful setting for a stunning day.

Robert and Erica, thank you for inviting me into your wonderful day!

I know what it is like to live away from your family.

So when there is a moment when you all get together to see each other it is so special.

I have known Sophie for a while now, and like me, she is from the UK and married a South African, David, and they decided to live here in South Africa.

In December Sophie’s parents, two sisters and brother came over to visit South Africa to enjoy the festive season altogether, and I’m sure the sunshine too!

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.
