Groot Brak, Mossel Bay, Garden Route
Oh boy was this a goodie!
I think I start every wedding blog like this… It was a BANGER! And I really don’t know how I always get not only the BEST bridal couples, but bridal party and guests. EVERYONE was AWESOME!
I first met Monique and PJ when I we did their engagement shoot in the pine forests of Plettenberg Bay. I think we laughed our way through that shoot and I am sure PJ is a model or he was a model in his past life. He just knows! I was counting the days down since that shoot.
It’s always lovely going back to Seeplaas and when we arrived we were greeted by dolphins and 7 Southern Right Whales. Here I am about to shoot a wedding and we get a spoil like this. I love this country!
Monique and PJ, your forever day will be in my memory bank forever. You both were so relaxed on your day and I love a wedding that just flows without any clock watching. Monique you looked absolutely drop dead gorgeous and your bridesmaids reactions says it all. Dad and daughter reveals are so special and every time I do one, I am humbled that I get to see such raw, unscripted and emotional moments. PJ, dude did you look suave or what? I have never shot a groom in a brown suit and let me tell you something, no groom in the future will ever be able to pull it off like you did! You both compliment each other in so many ways.
PJ, just like Monique had her moment with her dad, you walking down the aisle with your mom, left no one dry eye at the ceremony. Absolutely special.
Monique and PJ, I wish that your love for each other grows stronger as each day passes and that your life together is filled with adventures, laughter, compassion, honesty, JC le Roux champagne cans, the finest whiskey, loyal friends, family and love, so much love!
