Perfect Claudine… my first bride of the season.

The hardest part of this eshoot with the GORGEOUS Amy and Gray was choosing which photos to blog ;-) I loved so many moments from this Lovebirds shoot on Amy’s family farm Oak Valley here in our beautiful Elgin! A misty morning walk to the dam and back through the greenhouses – such a wonderful morning getting to know these two better before their stunning wedding here next March! Enjoy the photos…

I know I’ve said this so many times before but one of my favourite bits about my job is getting to meet such a wonderful variety of fascinating people! It’s a real privilege to get a peek into their story, especially at such precious times of their lives, like getting engaged or saying their “I do’s”. Anshen flew down to the Cape with his gorgeous girlfriend Ronette, a princess cut diamond gleeming in his pocket :-) He popped the question on Friday, already having booked our eshoot session from afar, hoping she would say yes! And of course she did :-D So Saturday afternoon we headed out to photograph this beautiful ring and their happy smiles on a breath-taking piece of Cape coastline with the mist rolling in… Perfect…

The light and the rocks and the haze – it’s like a bit of a dream… Ronette and Anshen’s Lovebirds engagement shoot was such a joy to photograph this last weekend. More photos coming soon!

Such a simple and delicious mid-week or lazy weekend meal! Plus, according to Banting followers, with lashings of butter in the cauli rice it’s even healthier! ;-D Find the Food Fox’s super recipe here on the ever-inspiring Pretty Blog.

One last sneak peek from our African Moon inspired shoot with Fleur le Cordeur and Agape Weddings… How beautiful is our model Alana in this dress from Stefania Morland??

Heeeere’s a little sneak peek from yesterday’s inspiration shoot. An incredible neck piece from the inimitably awesome creative force Heike from Fleur le Cordeur. Our model here was the breath taking Karen Engelbrecht.

So this story started with an email from Brandon, on the brink of proposing and asking whether I would be there to document the big moment – I’m a TOTAL sucker for such romance :-D After lots of chats we decided that as awesome as that would be it’s hard to smuggle in outfits and make-up for a beautiful eshoot without your soon-to-be-wife realising you’re up to something!! So we chatted some more and came up with a glamorous walk around Cape Town ending on the rooftop of the stunning Urban Chic hotel with the setting sun on Table Mountain in the background. I’m sure you’ll agree it doesn’t get more romantic than that :-D Lindsay and Brandon, what a fun day out with you two!! I can’t wait for your wedding next year!! Enjoy the photos…

So it was a very exciting start to the week for our little team who put this wintery styled shoot together! The photos were featured on the Strictly Weddings blog, an American wedding website with a huge following internationally and on Facebook alone the pics have had a dizzying amount of interaction – up to 14,000 likes and counting!! You could imagine that blogs like these may become guarded and jaded, and even a bit prickly to deal with, but I just wanted to say that they could not have been more delightful throughout all the emails and toing and froing. For me that says a lot!

So back to the team that made these creative visions a reality – Heike, my gorgeous friend and co-dreamer-upper of flowery photo fests, from Fleur le Cordeur, left us all with our jaws on the floor, as per usual!! Sparkling colours, layered tactile textures, brave and dramatic collations of perfect blooms – it’s all in day’s work for her ;-) Talented Valery, the creative and organised force behind Agape Wedding and Event Design brought all the elements together, from dresses and decor, to running the behind the scenes action and lunch for the starving team ;-) Kate from Something Different created the most stunning lighting pieces and installations to underpin the sets. The ever-lovely Yolande du Toit managed to turn our exquisite model Silke Viljoen into an even more show stopping beauty! The details and dresses on this shoot were truly amazing and were lucky enough to have a gorgeous cake creation from Roxanne Floquet, stationery from the talented team at Secret Diary Designs, dresses from Stefania Morland and Jacques la Grange Couture and the stunning venue of Ashanti in Paarl.

So now it’s just left to show you my favourite images from the day…
