Black Wedding Dress
That was one of the first things Lelani said to me, that she was wearing a black dress! I never had a bride who was that daring to wear a black dress… I was hooked, I wanted to be part of this day!
Every time I get a wedding booking, I try and imagine how my bridal couple looks (NO I don’t Facebook), their personalities as an individual and as a couple. Lelani and Ian was more than I imagined!
I don’t think there is a kinder person out there and so chilled! Ian was super quiet and as most grooms, not a fan of photographs, but he sucked it up and secretly I am hoping he enjoyed it as much as I did!
Lelani and Ian decided to get married at Hunter’s Forest Chapel for a morning ceremony, amongst closest friends and family, from there we went to the tranquil Newstead Wine Farm up at the Crags for their reception. We decided to go to Keurboomstrand for their couple shoot, under grey skies and a low tide, we played around the rocks, the river and finished our shoot at Arch Rock! What a day!
Lelani and Ian, thank you so much for trusting us to be part of your day! It was such a pleasure and the two of you made my “job” so easy! I can’t wait to get a piece of Lelani’s art on my wall!
