Maria & Marcel | Villa Castollini Wedding

Villa Castollini Wedding

Knysna, Garden Route

Classic, that’s all!

I honestly don’t know how I get these amazing humans week in and week out and Maria and Marcel are no different.

We first met on a cold misty afternoon at Coney Glen in Knysna for their engagement shoot, where they took the tequila shot like pros! Especially Marcel! (:

We laughed and of course made bangers and I love meeting my couples before their day, I really get a sense of who they are and what they really want on their wedding day.

Move on a few months and here we were again, a cold misty autumn day at Villa Castollini in Knysna. The grey skies didn’t dampen the great day that it was.

Maria, you looked so elegant, a film start from the 1960’s. You were every bit as gracious immaculate, classic, luminous, sophisticated, beautiful, prefect, enchanting and serene as Grace Kelly was in her hay-day. I was in awe!

Marcel, a man of few words, but when you speak, I listened. You too looked like something from a film set, a James Dean. Your cigar smoking needs some work, they made for awesome photographs and your dance moves where epic, especially on those broken plates!

You and Maria are actually too perfect for each other. 

Maria and Marcel, dudes thank you so much for inviting me to be part of this special, special day. It is a day I won’t forget in a very long time.

I wish you both so much happiness, adventures, tequila drinking, plate throwing, laughs, date nights and above all, the love, all the love that your hearts can give each other.

Until we see each other!
