Red Ivory Lodge – Melissa and Mark

Friday, Red Ivory Lodge. Somehow this is how I’d imagined two people who had been dating for 17 years would be getting married. Relaxed, at ease with everything, a lot of emotion amongst the family, and a killer bee view across the Magaliesburg. A first dance to Depeche Mode’s ‘Somebody’ gets top marks from everyone including the very strict Russian judge.

Some vendor details:

DJ: Sean Torres
Video: Nick and Santi from DVI
Decor/flowers: Don’t quote me on this, but I think I saw Cindy from The Bloom Room leaving as we arrived.
Venue: Red Ivory Lodge, one of our favorite venues – James is always there to make sure things are running smoothly, the food rocks (The onion soup with Camembert!) and the view/location is out of this world.

a classic moment from the first dance – the pageboy on the end with his face buried in the gameboy makes it for me.

So the season has started and we’ve been seeing a lot of new clients, chatting to them, the general consensus seems to be that they’d like to see more blog images from each wedding. We’re going to try something new this season and post an extended version of the wedding on our facebook page – yes we’ve finally joined the rest of the world and have a facebook page! – so a short, tight edit for the blog and an extended version for facebook. Click here to see more images from this wedding.
