Trust me, I don’t get cold. I’m known to wear t-shirts and shorts in mid-winter without much fuss. But, wow, at Corrien and JJ’s wedding the wind had a bit of a bite to it. Corrien and her bridesmaids had goose-bumps on their goose-bumps and were digging deep I can tell you (in fact, Corrien woke up with a bit of a cold the following day). But hey, it was her and JJ’s wedding day for crying out loud and we had to do what we had to do right? Actually, the cause of the cold was all JJ’s fault. You see, he asked me to go and have a look at this farm down the road from Nitida where the ceremony and reception were held. So off I went to take a look about 2 weeks before the wedding. When I got there, I met Oom JP Melck who told me I was welcome to shoot anywhere. I thought I’d died and gone to heaven – the place was tailor-made for something different (and I do love something different you know). So come wedding day I couldn’t wait to get down to the farm. But once we got there, I wasn’t too sure whether JJ’s idea was all that clever because I could see the girls freezing their bums off. Luckily, JJ’s best men were a complete hoot and deflected a lot of the attention away from the Icelandic blizzard blowing through. Corrien had told me before the wedding that she didn’t care about the weather as long as we got some good shots. Well, she sure led from the front, doing anything asked of her. Which is why I will maintain to my dying day that my wedding chicks absolutely rock! Even though I try to make everything as comfortable and seamless as possible at a wedding, deep down I know that it’s not always easy for my brides and grooms. But they never let me down, and for that I am eternally grateful. Okay, before we all burst into tears, here are some of their photos. I always tell my brides and grooms that they’ll get a minimum of 500 photos, but there won’t be any restrictions. If there are 600 goodies, then so be it, if there are 700 decent pics, then so be it. Corrien and JJ cracked 849 photos. Styyyyling! Loved your wedding guys, absolutely loved it!
