Roodezand Wedding | Christiaan & Carla | Tulbagh

“Lord, grant that I might not so much seek to be loved as to love”

– Francis of Assisi –

I was so happy and excited and honoured when Carla contacted me to shoot their wedding. I marked it on the calendar as a 2017 highlight AND IT WAS. It was perfect. Friends and family traveling from near and far to celebrate on a lovely landscape in an intimate setting with a touch of nostalgia, and a lot of party in their step when it came to the dance floor. Carla and Christiaan dankie vir soveel mooi. Jul troue het my weer herhinner hoekom ek lief is vir hierdie werk en my geinspireer om bietjie meer Kaaps se kant toe te kyk. Hoop Jul geniet die memories xxx Simone & Kobus

NS. Een van my persoonlike hoogtepunte was om te sien wat Carla sou kies as rok {want ek het geweet dit sou beslis nie die normale wees nie} Die keuse het my wildste verwagtinge omtrent ‘n duisend keer oortref. Maar genoeg van woorde…kyk die prentjies! ;)

Rosemary hill Wedding | Sibusiso & Banele | Pretoria

“Love is to be bound by courage to grow through struggle into bliss”

 

Banele & Sibu’s intimate wedding at Rosemary hill was one of the highlights of my 2016 wedding season. Those who have read snippets of my wedding stories on a previous occasion know how I adore intimate weddings. There is just another kind of holiness to two people getting married without the “noise” if I can respectfully put it like that. The ceremony was beautiful and very different to the usual. After, they had lunch with their parents & then it was our time and it was so much fun. Sibu should probably have his own television show ;) I laughed a lot! Thank you, you two for a lovely afternoon! I loved every minute of it! And how gorgeous is Banele in her Silver Swallow wedding dress!! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! xxx Simone

The Cowshed wedding | Wilmar & Mariske

“There are no rules of architecture for a castle in the clouds”

– G.K. Chesterton –

It was a very wet weekend all across South Africa. It was our first ever wedding at The Cowshed and we were not disappointed. What a splendid magical piece of heaven & the misty rainy vibe made it even more spectacular. Wilmar and Mariske what a gorgeous gorgeous wedding! Dankie dat ons kon deel wees van die magic! Fireplaces, red wine, amazing food & one killer party with the dudes from Bad Peter! Heaven!! Much love Kobus & Simone

Family | Koorts

“I am starting my own family & there is no other feeling like it “

Jan-Paul & Marne’…this shoot seriously looks like we should print giant street posters and advertise beautiful people. I said on my facebook page that these two are like sunshine after a long rain and through the comments I could see that it is not only me who experienced them as really warm hearted AND what a lovely couple! Dankie julle twee, dit was so heerlik om jul te ontmoet en al geselsend fotos te neem. Geniet die wonderlike avontuur waarmee julle nou gaan begin…dis een crazy ride maar gevul met ongelooflike joy xxx S
