Lisa and Shlomi, Suikerbossie

Lisa and Shlomi, Suikerbossie

Let me tell you something about Lisa. She likes a photo. Actually, she likes a lot of photos. Now let me tell you something about Shlomi. He doesn’t like a photo. Actually, he doesn’t like to pose for photos. Problematic. Bride wants lots of photos, groom wants just a few photos. I know this because […]

Charles and Riana, Slipperfields, Port Elizabeth

Charles and Riana, Slipperfields, Port Elizabeth

Slipperfields is a long, long way from Cape Town, but the scenery en-route makes up for distance. When Hel and myself arrived, we booked into the lodge and then headed off to find Slipperfields and explore the area. It was amazing to say the least. Real farmlands these – full of cows, lush green grass, […]

Anzelle and Rob: Trash the Dress, Brenton-on-Sea

Anzelle and Rob: Trash the Dress, Brenton-on-Sea

Driving around beautiful Knysna is always a bit of a treat. The town is pretty much in a league of its own. You get the feeling that the people of this world famous coastal village on the Garden Route are extremely proud of their product and it shows. Clean streets, friendly people, manicured from pillar […]

Kyle and Elani, Oubos, Eastern Cape

Kyle and Elani, Oubos, Eastern Cape

I’ve seen some pretty exceptional places in my time shooting weddings. But I tell you what, you’re going to have to pull out every trick in the book to match a small, sleepy little coastal town called Oubos. Hollywood would battle to conjure up this sort of place. Before I left for Kyle and Elani’s […]

Bruce and Sarah, Buitenverwachting, Constantia

Bruce and Sarah, Buitenverwachting, Constantia

I met Bruce and Sarah for the very first time exactly two days before their wedding. They’d landed at CT International after a very delayed flight from London (Argus Cycle Tour bicycles being loaded and all) and driven straight through to Buitenverwachting for a quick chat. Sarah sat opposite me and looked concerned. ‘Warren,’ she […]

Adam and Vania, Grotto Bay

Adam and Vania, Grotto Bay

  I’m going to say two words here, and when I do, one of the groomsmen at Adam and Vania’s wedding (Simon is his name), is going to turn cold with sweat. You see, the thing is, Simon is a big strong fellow. He rides motorbikes and stuff. And let’s be honest here, you don’t […]

Albert and Natasha, Suikerbossie, Hout Bay

Albert and Natasha, Suikerbossie, Hout Bay

So today’s million Dollar question is… hands up if you know what the Hora is? Okay, so before everyone rushes off to Google it, I’ll tell you. At a Jewish wedding, when the bride and groom enter the reception, the Hora takes place. This is designed to do two things. Firstly it’s one heck of […]

Michael and Leanne, La Vierge, Hermanus

Michael and Leanne, La Vierge, Hermanus

I gulped down some water, looked over at Leanne and said: ‘Now listen here, seriously girl, this barbed wire is vicious hey. Touch it and your Rosenwerth dress is going to tear like rice paper.’ I wasn’t joking either. We’d reversed the Land Rover up to the fence, hoping that everyone would be able to […]

Lauren and Pablo, Lord Milner Hotel, Matjiesfontein

Lauren and Pablo, Lord Milner Hotel, Matjiesfontein

I continually say to my brides and grooms that I can only shoot what is in front of me. To a degree, I can manipulate things – and I do – when I get stuck into the bridal party and family photos after the service. But for the rest of it, what is in front […]

Gerard and Jonelle, Old Mac Daddy

Gerard and Jonelle, Old Mac Daddy

There are 3 essential actions in life that will make you happier and help you live longer. The first is simply to love everyone (and if you can’t love someone then just pretend you do). The second one is to drink an ice-cold beer because beer makes you and those around you more interesting. And […]

Nigel and Carly, Val de Vie

Nigel and Carly, Val de Vie

Whenever I first meet my wedding couples they’re often in two minds as to how to plan their weddings. So I tell them to do things according to one simple rule and that’s simply, do it your way. Which is exactly what Nigel and Carly did. They broke with a lot of tradition at their […]

Tristan and Kristin, Boesmanland Plaaskombuis

Tristan and Kristin, Boesmanland Plaaskombuis

Let’s try a little tongue-twister shall we? How about: ‘She sells sea shells on the sea shore.’ Or alternatively we could go with: ‘How much wood would Woodstock stock if Woodstock could stock wood.’ Right, now that we have you warmed up, try walking around for a few hours saying Tristan and Kristin without stumbling […]

Pierre and Sharon, Shelley Point Hotel

Pierre and Sharon, Shelley Point Hotel

Welcome to Sharon and Pierre’s wedding. Now you see, as you’re about to find out, this wedding was all about legs. Firstly, there was my right leg which was not in the best shape it’s ever been in. You see, a week before Sharon and Pierre’s wedding I ripped my darned calf muscle on the […]

JJ & Corrien

JJ & Corrien

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 […]

Roxanne and Mark, Trash the Dress

Roxanne and Mark, Trash the Dress

In theory, a Trash the Dress takes about 2 or hours so to complete. That’s in theory. In real, living life, that was not quite the case with Roxanne’s Trash the Dress. Allow me to explain… Part 1. It’s 3.00am in the morning when Rox and Mark pull out of their driveway in Somerset West […]

Garth & Lee, Val de Vie

Garth & Lee, Val de Vie

Faith. Small word, big meaning. Let me explain. Helen and myself are driving out to Val de Vie for Garth and Lee’s wedding. There are seriously unlucky looking clouds all around us. It looks a bit like Scotland on a bad day. We get to Val de Vie and I go and say hi to […]

Kirsten and Pascale, Vrede & Lust

Kirsten and Pascale, Vrede & Lust

It was 15 minutes before Pascale was to come down the aisle. Kirsten was primed and ready, looking like the main man in his suit. The guests had started to make their way down to the ceremony area after a pre-ceremony drinkie-poo or two. I walked past a big silver ice-bucket that had a few […]

Rox and Mark

Rox and Mark

Sometimes a plan doesn’t come together. In the case of Roxanne and Marks engagement shoot, the plan fell apart completely. What we initially wanted to do was to shoot their engagement photos on my cousins boat in the waters just off Paternoster. But when D-Day arrived, the wind had decided to chop the waters up […]

Karl and Tamlyn, Donier

Karl and Tamlyn, Donier

So let’s see now, how will I remember Karl and Tamlyn’s wedding? Well, I could tell you that Karl is quite a cute chap. I could also tell you that when it comes to pure, raw cutie-pie-ness, Tamlyn actually leaves Karl in the shade. I could tell you about Sophia the gorgeous little flowergirl who […]

James and Liesl

James and Liesl

It’s not exactly a secret that every couple I’ve ever shot hold a somewhat special place in the notebook of my mind (how’s that for a bit of poetry in motion?) And James and Liesl are no exception. I shot their wedding (which you’ll find here), then we did a boudoir shoot, and finally a […]
