Now don’t get me wrong – Ryno, Anel and their guests are really happy people. And everyone is really chuffed that they got married. But jeepers, at this wedding if you so much as looked at somebody they burst into tears! I was having a field day out there in the hot Paternoster sun. First one to go was bridesmaid Chandre. Next thing one of the guests in isle 6 starts to wobble. Whoa, swing right, mom’s lip is starting to quiver. No, no, wait, go further right, there goes dad now! And so it went – this one crying, that one having a quiet blub, Anel herself losing control. It was bloody fantastic mate! After the service we walked through town (to the absolute delight of the patrons at the Paternoster Hotel, who broke into spontaneous applause and cheering) for the family pics. It was quite fun really, traipsing around the dorp, bantering away, waving at hooting cars and so on. We even met a really old granny who’d clearly had a bit too much of a party over lunch and who insisted on doing some impromptu (and fairly legless) posing for us. Family pics over we jumped into the cars and drove down to Tiestiesbaai for a quick 45-minute session before the sun dipped below the horizon. Of course it was the start of the crayfish season so we were met by a ton of campers around their braai’s, just chilling out and soaking up all the good things in life. Well done chaps – love your work!
