Emily Moon Wedding

Plettenberg Bay, Garden Route

Emily at Emily Moon!

It’s always a little daunting photographing a bride who says the NICEST things about your photography. Sometimes I am like, “girl are you sure you are talking to the right person?”. Not only did Emily have the nicest things to say, but she has been following me for 7 years and she told me, I don’t care about anything but two things about my wedding, the venue and the photographer, they chose a date based on my availability, the pressure just ramped up!

I met Emily and StJohn at Emily Moon just a couple of days before, and flip those eyes, that hair and those legs. It felt like I was just catching up with some old mates that rolled into town. I am not sure we spoke too much about the wedding, LOL! That’s when you know its going to be comfortable wedding! And it was!

Roll on Saturday 2nd April 2022, man the weather gods played with our emotions. I won’t lie, when a UK bride wants SUN and she gets MISTY and RAIN. It’s like ahhh man! This sucks! But I will never ever leave a bride unhappy, I mean this is THEIR day and even though I am not married, I feel like I have planned with these people, without even hesitating, I checked Sunday’s weather and I was like “Dude, let’s get what we can today and there is sun tomorrow afternoon, if you and Singe want to shoot, lets do it!”.

I can highly recommend a day after shoot, I have done it a few times now and I honestly feel its just more relaxed in terms of checking timings and thinking about speeches and dancing etc. 

But back to the wedding day, Emily and Singe, I have been to a lot of weddings, but that ceremony was the BEST I have ever been part of, your cousin, was amazing. I was laughing, then I felt I needed to cry and then laughing again. It was a rollercoaster but the best I have been on.

Ems and Singe, dudes, I hope this is not the last time we see each other, maybe one day you can show me the sights in the UK and I’ll share my fur babies on our beautiful beaches.

Your future is going to be filled by so many laughs and I hope you work on your travel plans! LOL!
