Some days you end up with an Overcast sky on a wedding day and you really glad it ended up that way, Now Komatipoort/Malelane really can be relatively hot even in winter months, but on their wedding day, which took place on both Eliska’s dads Church that he is the minister of as well as the family farm bordering Marloth Park, the weather worked out perfectly. We had some great moody skies while shooting the groomsmen before the wedding as well as a general cool atmosphere throughout the ceremony. We got pretty lucky with the Couple shoot as well, In Komatipoort we had the creepy clouds edge closer as we got our spots and let the shutters loose, then traveling through the rain we saw the sun breaking through the clouds and started gunning it to our last spot of the day, and man, what amazing colors in the sky with an awesome red umbrella as a prop in a perfect landscaped field with that one lone tree that just sets the mood.
The other highlight was shooting the family Photos on the Kruger national park side of the fence and just as we finished off and the exact moment of us closer the gate a large Elephant made his way up the bank and made us Crap ourselves as it trumpeted about 10 meters away.
Christo and Maryke’s wedding took place at Likweti Lodge between Nelspruit and White river relatively close to the Kruger Mpumalanga international Airport. The day really was decently warm for a winters day, with very little cloud cover throughout the day. This was a second wedding for the both of them but as with new beginnings, they too went the full wedding route and spent the time to create an amazing new marriage celebration together with Friends and Family. Christo got ready together with his Son and Maryke with her sister. so No massive bridal party on this one. The ceremony took place at fish eagle dam with a beautiful soft breeze blowing over the dam. as often as we do shoot here, its always great to be outside on a beautiful day. The couple shoot went super well, they were amazing fun to shoot, made them jump, pull faces and the whole lots and they just performed without fuss. Laughed our arses off! the reception was an amazing vibe to it, mostly due to the fact that they had a live performing artist playing nearly all kinds of instruments during reception with a voice that can mimic nearly all well known songs. well Hope you like the Images, we had great fun getting them.
