Summer Place Wedding – Raffaella and Michael

Wed, 17 Aug 2016

I’m sure I’ve mentioned a million times that I grew up in Benoni. I went to a primary school where during break times you were as likely to hear someone speaking in Greek or Portuguese as English. Going to a friend’s house meant incredible food and don’t even get me started on Easter …

So it’s Saturday and I’m at Summer Place, photographing Raffaella and Michael’s wedding, and I feel like I may have gone to school with a lot of these people (well, their older siblings anyway). All the energy and just letting loose and having fun … and the food of course …

Venue: Summer Place
Chapel: St David’s
Dress: Someone who makes killer bee dresses
Make-up: Sam Scarborough – who rocks btw.
Video: DVI

you can find even more pics from their killer bee Summer Place wedding on our facebook page.

Summer Place Wedding – Bronwen + Andries

Tue, 26 Jul 2016

It seems I’m always posting blogs late at night these days, we’re deep into summer madness, trying to keep up with the latest weddings. A lot of the other wedding photographers in our circle are also still up, I can see them on Skype. I’m kind of half listening to the new Black Keys on my earphones – V is asleep, it’s an early morning for her tomorrow.

We were at Summer Place this weekend for Bronwen and Andries’ wedding, two people who I couldn’t imagine more in love (and two of the nicest people you’re likely to meet). You know it’s easy to get jaded in this industry, another wedding, another bride in a beautiful white dress, but looking at these two smiling at each other, sneaking crafty looks and kisses on the staircase, your heart can’t help smiling. So now, late at night, my new lava lamp keeping me company, editing those images and seeing the sneaky glances, I’m smiling again to myself, very grateful to have been able to capture those moments. The cats are still looking at me strangely.

I did get vendor details this week:

Dress: Gideon
Shoes: Jimmy Choo
Getting Ready: Le Chatelat Boutique Guest House – stunning venue
Ceremony: St Martins in the Veld – can’t actually explain how beautiful the light is in this 100 year old church.
Reception: Summer Place – our co-ordinator was Simon who was on the ball and really accommodating.
Decor: Lorraine at Papillo Designs, rapidly becoming one of our favorite decor/wedding coordination people. Just a rockstar really.
DJ: The man, the myth, the legend, DJ Luis Almeida
Videographers: Andre from Freeman Productions – professional and unobtrusive, a pleasure to work with as always.

pretty good huh?
