Alvin & Donna | Wedding | Vrede En Lust, Simondium

rebeccagroves_southafrica_uk_wedding_photographer_vredeenlust_donna_alvin 0001.jpg

I love hearing how couples met for the first time. For Donna and Alvin, it was on a Canadian bound plane journey where they first hit it off. Donna was flying back home to Canada from her work, at an NGO in Limpopo, and she just so happened to be sitting next to Alvin. And the rest (as they say in the classics) is history.

Having chosen the beautiful location of Vrede En Lust near Simondium as their venue, and complete with a bubbly group of family and friends from all over South Africa and the world, the stage was set for a magical wedding day.

George & Hannah | Engagement

Rebecca Groves Photography

During this UK visit, one of the weddings I have really been looking forward to was that of my friend Hannah.

We have been friends since early school years, and it was a real honor to get the opportunity to capture her and George together a few weeks before the wedding date.

Doing an engagement shoot is always a great opportunity for couples to get some extra experience in front of the lens, and always pays off with great photos on the day.

Wedding shoot to follow shortly – watch this space!

Mark | Portrait

Rebecca Groves Photography

It’s been great to catch up with old friends during our short stay here. One of Nick’s friends is a great musician, and he needed some photos to update his online presence.

Running short on ideas as to where we should shoot, we managed to find a spot nearby a local shopping area that had some good texture and lighting that would compliment and enhance the photos. We were lucky to get it just before the sun went down!

What a delight to meet up with Pete & Sarah again in London!

I had the wonderful opportunity of capturing Pete & Sarah’s stunning wedding in Cape Town last year. It was a gloriously colorful, joyful and romantic day that was enjoyed by all.

Couves | Family Shoot

Rebecca Groves Photography

Last Saturday was a fantastic day. After having visited the Pettit’s for Stella Rose’s 5 month shoot, we headed off into the winelands of Constantia to Steve and Vanessa Couves’ beautiful home. With a majestic garden wedged between a quiet river and an old Cape Dutch house, it was no surprise that we opted for an outdoor shoot.

Job & Kim | Engagement Shoot

Rebecca Groves Photography

This has to be one of the most exciting photo shoots I have ever done – all because I wasn’t just capturing Job & Kim for their engagement – but I was also photographing Job’s surprise proposal to Kim.  And what a proposal it was!

Job & Kim met in Belgium while Kim was finishing her final year of her law degree there.  A romance blossomed, as did a long-distance relationship, as Kim had to come back to South Africa and Job had to stay in Belgium to finish his studies.  After many trips back and forth for each of them, Job decided that he was going to make a very special, surprise trip over to South Africa to get down on one knee and pop the question to Kim.

This year it has been great to connect with a fellow photographer, Tabitha from Illuminate Photography. Last month Tabitha and I decided we would take a day out, have a bit of a make over, and we would get in front of camera – a place a bit unfamiliar to us!

Niall & Carin | Engagement

I love my job. I get to take photos of people in love, and every shoot captivates a unique story from each couples lives. Capturing Niall and Carin together in the wonderful setting of the Alphen Green Belt in Constantia made me think of how even more unique and beautiful their wedding day will be September this year. Aside from getting interrupted by just about every breed of dog imaginable, we managed to get through the session, and have some fun and laughter along the way. It was lovely to include some fun props they brought for the shoot, along with the color themes that will be included in their wedding decor.

Roxy | 6 Months Baby Shoot

Rebecca Groves Photography

Meet Duncan & Janine’s sweet little 6 month old Roxy.  How cute is she?

Last year I did a maternity photo shoot for Michelle & Janine, who are sisters and happened to be pregnant at the same time and wanted to capture this life changing event in their lives.  Shortly after Michelle had little Aidan and I captured him at 3 weeks old.  Just before Janine had Roxy, but decided to wait until Roxy was 6 months old for her baby shoot.
