Muizenberg engagement shootTahmeryn and Brandon 002Muizenberg engagement shoot

 

Tahmeryn and Brandon chose Muizenberg beach for their engagement shoot. It was our first shoot in this location and it quickly moved to the top of the list! The famous beach houses are just one of the reasons to love Miuzenberg. Another one is light, wrapping around the mountain and giving everything a golden glow.

But the real reason I'm absolutely in love with this session are the models! Tahmeryn is such a stunning girl, effortlessly striking poses and looking glamorous. Brandon's sense of fashion and fabulous personality that goes with the looks make them the dream couple to photograph. They posed like a pro's, standing against the cold wind together. I think it was totally worth the effort! 

This Muizenberg engagement shoot got me even more excited for Brandon and Tahmeryn's wedding in October. They are going to look absolutely fabulous!

Claire and Josh's Steenberg wedding photography https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2015/6/claire-and-joshs-steenberg-wedding-photography Claire and Josh's Steenberg wedding photography

 

 

Claire and Josh decided to tie the knot at Steenberg in Constantia. I can't think of more iconic and magical venue for this elegant celebration! The flowers were in full bloom, the sun set perfectly over the mountain, just in time for Claire and Josh's Sternberg wedding photography. The bride looked breathtaking as she walked down the aisle in her designer gown and turquoise shoes! We loved all the bridal details, especially Claire's "something blue", the antique hair clip with a gorgeous stone, that used to crown her grandmother's hair.

 

The simple elegance of the bride's dress and accessories emphasised Claire's natural beauty and a sparkling personality. But the true shine came on her face when she saw Josh at the end of the aisle!

What brought you together?
"We met through a mutual friend who stabled her horse at the same yard that I lived and stabled my horse at. Josh pretended that he wanted to stable a horse at the yard. and I pretended that I didn't know it was a set up. Josh is the most incredible person that I have ever met in my life, it was impossible not to fall in love with him. The more time we spent together the more we couldn't stay away from each other."

 

 

What was the most special memory of your wedding day?
"Ï will never forget the minute I saw my future husband standing at altar" with Andred, my heart melted, I got butterflies in my stomach and I couldn't wait to marry him."
 
 
 
Any advice for the future brides?
"The best advice is to focus on enjoying the process. Don't get too caught up on the materialistic aspects. It doesn't need to be 100% perfect, the imperfections often lead to the best memories. Be adaptable when things change. Remember to eat the food and taste the cake! Stay calm on your wedding day and take time to be present every moment and smile."

Anette and Tinus came all the way from Johannesburg to celebrate their wedding in the beautiful Cape. We were delighted to capture their Zorgvliet wedding photography!  This iconic venue created the perfect scene for their wedding ceremony and reception. Zorgvliet's historic buildings and a charming chapel are a dream location to join two paths together! Anette looked incredible as she walked down the aisle towards us. We loved the simple yet touching ceremony conducted by Rev Daniel Brits. After the couple exchanged rings, the family and friend showered them with cascades of white rose petals

 


The venue was tastefully decorated in white. Crystal candelabras and white flowers filled the space making it look very sophisticated. The celebration carried long into the night, with lots of laughter and dancing. We enjoyed capturing every moment of Annette and Tinus' special day! Their wedding was a true celebration of love and life!

 

Annette: "Lots of people said your wedding day is so busy and goes by so fast that you remember only snippets of it. So we made a point of relaxing, enjoying it and taking in every moment. Marrying your best friend just makes it so much more special. It was the most memorable and romantic day of our lives where we made very special memories with each other and our closest friends and family."

Landi and Gerhard chose Cape Point Vineyards for their wedding ceremony. What a perfect choice! The couple exchanged vows in the golden evening sun with the the stunning valley behind them. Simple yet stylish arch covered with white flowers framed the ceremony. 
Landi looked incredible in her Enzoani gown!
We absolutely loved capturing Landi and Gerhards Cape Point Vineyards wedding video and photography!
Landi and Gerhard have such a special connection, we didn't have to pose them at all. They are a true delight for a wedding photographer and videographers! Both the bride and the groom are gorgeous and absolutely lovely. We hope we captured all their special moments to be treasured for generations to come. 
 
 
"Gerhard and I met on a blind date (although thanks to facebook, it wasn't all that blind  ;-) I knew from that first evening that he was someone I could spend the rest of my life with."
 
 
The highlight of our wedding was just sitting at our table alone for a moment and seeing how many special people had come to celebrate with us. And the speeches where pretty amazing too!
Our wedding day was truly fun, and the best advice I can give to future brides is to enjoy every moment. Don't worry about the small things, because those aren't the things you are going to remember. All that matters is that you have fun and surround yourself with the people you love.

wedding videoShannon and Greg 10Wedding video, wedding videographer , wedding videography

 

Shannon and Greg celebrated their union on the 7th of March 2015 at Tarragona Lodge. We enjoyed capturing their wedding video and participating in this joyful event. The bride looked stunning in her fitted wedding gown, amongst her bridesmaids in pastel infinity dresses. The groom and the groomsmen had tons of fun getting ready for the ceremony! They have been friends since school, so the wedding was a great opportunity for all of them to get together and have a laugh. Friends and family travelled from across the globe to witness Shannon and Greg's wedding ceremony and share their joy and excitement. We absolutely loved the outdoor reception, hosted on a lawn and decorated with fairy lights. The guests invaded the dance floor the moment it opened! Friends of the bride and groom have got some serious dance moves, but the family doesn't stay behind either. The dancing carried long into the night, with the stars and fairy light above.

We wish Shannon and Greg all the joy and happiness! They are the perfect match and being together makes them so happy! With such a great bunch of friends and family they have an exciting and fun journey ahead!

 

What brought you together? 

I think for us it was how much fun we had together, we were always going on adventures in Stellenbosch, where we met. We were both so different to anyone else we has ever met.
 

What was the one special memory of your wedding day? 

Shannon: For me it was Greg's and my fathers speech. I love every minute. Also seeing Greg so happy to be around his friends and family. You could just see he was in his element.

Greg: My special memory from the wedding (besides my beautiful bride) was just how perfectly everything worked out.  I truelly believe it was exactly how Shan pictured it.  It was also special seeing how much all the guests enjoyed it, and everyone got on so well.


Any advice for the future brides?

We would say enjoy every moment- keep saying this day is going to go slowly- it helped ha ha. Try speak to as many people as possible and take a moment to take yourselves away and watch everyone celebrating around you.

Izabela and Andre's Langkloof Roses wedding photography https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2015/4/izabela-and-andres-langkloof-roses-wedding-photography Izabela and Andre's Langkloof Roses wedding

 

 

This beautiful couple sealed their love on the 20th of March 2015. Izabela and Andre's Langkloof Roses wedding left us all speechless! The bride looked breathtaking as she came into the candle-lit chapel. We absolutely loved the light at the ceremony, combined from stained windows, chandeliers and candles. The reception hall hall was decorated with everything close to their hearts - travel maps and photos from their adventures together.  Dozens of naked bulbs hanging from the ceiling created an unforgettable mood. Langkloof Roses has seen some spectacular dance moves that night! The family and the guests enjoyed Africaans tunes combined with some Polish wedding songs. The celebration and dancing carried long into the night. It was such a perfect day for the perfect couple!

 

 

  • What brought you together?

We met in the UK, with our first date being at a rock music festival. We clicked from the first moment we met, both coming from different countries, both having a love for rock music and both being through some tough times in our lives. Our first date turned into 3 days since the festival was 3 days, so we definitely knew this might be it. A few months later we moved in together and a year later, moved to Cape Town South Africa. In the past year in Cape Town, we settled in with a new job, new house, got engaged and now married, happily of course. Everything just happened so quickly in the past 2 years and we loved every bit of it. We are both strong characters and since moving towns and countries a few times, it has made us equally prepared and really excited for any future plans or whatever life might throw at us. Looking back at everything in our lives, it definitely all happened for a reason. Call it cheesy, but fate brought us together and now since being married, we can’t wait to continue with the next exciting chapter of our lives!

  • What was the one special memory of your wedding day?

There were so many, but definitely the most beautiful part of our wedding was to have all the most important people in our lives together under one roof, many of them travelled from far and wide to celebrate our special day with us, it was priceless. Of course seeing my husband with his tear filled eyes as I came down the aisle, and then his speech later – beautiful, touching words that brought happy tears to my eyes.

 

  • Any advice for the future brides?

HAVE FUN!!! You're marrying the love of your life and nothing is as important as that. During your reception, make sure to take a step back and soak it all in. It is so easy to get distracted with everything happening around you if you are planning your own wedding, especially if you are constantly trying to make sure everything is ready and perfect for your guests. And before you know it, the day is gone. Ask your best man or bridesmaids to keep reminding you of your day, that you need to relax and enjoy every moment. Everyone is there for YOU and to celebrate the day with you because they love you. It will be a very surreal day and no matter what you do, it will go by fast, but it will undoubtedly be one of your best days of your life!

Sarah and David's Steenberg wedding photography https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2015/4/sarah-and-davids-steenberg-wedding-photography Sarah and David's Steenberg wedding photography​

 

 

We have met Sarah and David in a Skype interview almost a year ago. Immediately they won us over with their sense oh humour and warm personalities. Soon we knew about their house renovations and the puppy! We were delighted to know we are going to do Sarah and David's Steenberg wedding photography. We were awaiting their arrival to Cape Town in anticipation. Sarah and David chose Steenberg Estate for their intimate wedding. Steenberg is the one place in Cape Town that needs no introduction. One of the oldest estates in the Cape, nested between majestic mountains of Constantia, provides truly breathtaking scenery for wedding celebrations.

 

Sarah and David's wedding day was exciting right from the beginning! The groom was getting ready at the mansion at Cams Bay, with some pretty spectacular views. We were fascinated by all the pieces of traditional kilt that David was knowledgeably putting on one after the other. There is even a special way of tying those leather shoe laces over the wooly socks! I guess the generations of Scots have mastered the art of wearing this very flattering outfit! The groom ended up looking dashingly handsome in his kilt.

Sarah brought the most beautiful dress to wear on her wedding day. Layers of delicate fabric were pinned all over it, creating cascades of ivory chiffon. The dress was finished with a shoulder strap decorated with chiffon roses. It takes a girl like Sarah to work this kind of dress! When she finally put this masterpiece on, we all stood there breathless! I think the photos from Sarah's preparation are one of my all time favourite. The light at Steenberg wraps around the bride, making her look so delicate and elegant! 

 

 

Special thanks go to Florence! She was fantastic on the wedding day, assisting the bride with every little detail. Florence, you really are a role model of a bridesmaid and a true friend. The trick with using crochet needle to do the buttons on the bride's dress was priceless!

 

 

Sarah and David exchanged rings under the blue skies of Cape Town. Family and close friends witnessed this intimate ceremony and took part in the reception. It was a touching family reunion, proving that thousands of miles cannot weaken real bonds between family and friends. 

We hope Sarah and David visit Cape Town soon! We would like to wish the newlyweds only joy and happiness on their journey together.

 

 

What brought you together?

We've known each other since we were 4 years old and David used to fancy me when we were around 20 but it's taken til now to get together. We met again at the local rugby club and it went from there
 

What was the one special memory of your wedding day?

I think it'll have to be the speeches and especially the one from my step son Cullen, it really had me in floods of happy tears 
 

Any advice for the future brides?

Advice ..... write lists, lots of lists and delegate if need be .....  you are highly likely to get stressed however bubbles and friends will help you out, ha ha!!

 

 

Venue: Steenberg

Wendy and Jonathan's Forest 44 wedding photography and video https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2015/4/wendy-and-jonathans-forest-44-wedding-photography-and-video Wendy and Jonathan's Forest 44 wedding photography and video

 

 

Wendy and Jonathan got married on the 21st of February 2015 in Stellenbosch. The touching ceremony, attended by friends and family, was followed by the lively reception at Forest 44. The bride chose the stunning Dornier estate as their preparation venue. We were spoiled with spacious, luxury rooms of Dornier's manor House for Wendy's wedding preparation photography and video! 

Both bride and the groom chose their own cars to take them around! Wendy arrived in a classic, balsk and white, convertible MG, with a stylish driver opening doors for her. Jonathan and the boys were travelling in the purple Chevrolet, so well maintained, it could serve Elvis Presley! We took our bride and groom around in those unique, classic cars to do their Forest 44 wedding photography and video. 

Wendy looked absolutely breathtaking on her wedding day! Long, dark hair were falling on her shoulders, touching the top of her tasteful wedding gown. We were all mesmerised by the glowing beauty of this lovely girl! I'm sure Jonathan will alway remember the moment he saw his beautify bride walking down the aisle towards him.

 

 

We asked Wendy and Jonathan to share their story as well as some memories from their wedding day:

" Jono and I met in 2002. He walked into the room and my heart just lit up.

Jono was a friend of my mother's as they were all in the same bike group.

I always said to my mum, that the girl who marries him is one lucky girl!

After that night he turned around to me and said: "One day I'm going to marry you"

I said: "Ya, right, we will see"

After 13 years we got married. It's like a fairytale that came true!"

 


 

"The most memorable moment of the whole wedding was when I was walking down the aisle and I saw my fiancee standing there in his suit waiting for me, with the biggest smile I've ever seen! It was the most special moment for me.

On you wedding day, KEEP CALM and enjoy it! Remember, whatever goes wrong, there is always a solution to the problem!

On my wedding day my driver said to me that I'm the most calm and relaxed bride he has ever seen.

That's the secret to having a wonderful day and enjoying yourself! Don't get me wrong, things did happened on the day, like when they brought my bridesmaids flowers and they were pink instead of purple. LOL, really??? I just sent them back, so the florist can correct them. If not, there was a Woolworths around the corner that had purple flowers. Remember, there is alway a solution!"

 

 

We wish Wendy and Jonathan only love and happiness! Thank you for trusting us with your precious memories. We hope we have captured them in such a way, your wedding photography and video will always remind you of your special day! All the best for your journey ahead!

Kat and Andre

This lovely wedding started with an amazing drive. We got to travel to Reebek Kasteel, one or the most beautiful towns in the Cape, with lots of little bars and restaurants to hang out at. On top of that, we were going to capture Het Vlock Casteel wedding photography! Het Vlock Casteel is a gorgeous red brick castle, surrounded with lush mountains and winyards. What a perfect scenery for a wedding!

The wedding started with morning preparations. It was so lovely to watch friends and family assis the bride every step of her way! Chantel looked absolutely breathtaking in her shimmering gown, with elegant hair style and a gentle, fresh make-up. The bridesmaids looked lovely in their full length teal infinity dresses. We were all speechless when the bride walked down the aisle of the Riebeek Kasteel  church.

Het Vlock Kasteel is an amazing venue with an increasing following of enthusiasts. Every detail of the venue is perfected and looks like it was taken from the real medieval castle. The decor at Chantel and Morne's wedding was perfectly matched with the venue, the colours complemented the tone of the walls and wooden elements. We loved the massive proteas in glass vases placed as centrepieces on each table. The gentle blush colour of these magnificent flowers was also represented in the wedding cake. Well done, Chantel, you really put your creativity to work! Our favorite were the "rolling plants" painted white and decorated with crystals. They were hanging from the high ceilings adding shimmer to the reception hall.

"What brought us together was actually a modern Cinderella story, Morne asked me for a dance just as I was about to go home and after our first dance on my way out we quickly exchanged numbers, not thinking anything would come of it. We ended up going on a date that lead to me visiting him in hospital after a knee operation, and so after 6 years and many more dancing we tied the knot in our own little castle, Het Vlock Kasteel."

"Every moment was special, but the most special moment was when most of our guest has gone home and the last dance of the evening was playing. We were dancing and I just looked up and around me to all the fairy lights and decor, all the hard work of the past year and knew that I was finally married to my best friend and soul mate. Together we took in all the details of our day and the world just seem to be right and everything as it should be. And I realized that in that moment I found true peace and happiness."

"My advice to future brides is to take time during your day and just take in all the details and hard work, keep in mind that sometimes there will be things that doesn't go according to plan, but don't let it spoil your day, make the best of it, because it is really over in a flash. In the end its about two people starting a new chapter in their lives,and you write the first page, so make it beautiful."

Janis and Clintons Suikerbossie wedding photography https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2014/12/janis-and-clintons-suikerbossie-wedding-photography Janis and Clintons Suikerbossie wedding photography

 

We were looking forward to capture Janis and Clinton's Suikerbossie wedding photography for over a year. Both the bride and the groom are beautiful people inside out. Janis just radiates kindness and beauty every step of her way, Clinton is a fashion-loving good looking young man. Together they are this kind of couple everybody wants to be around. Family and friends came from all corners of the world to be part of their celebration.

Janis was getting ready at the 12 Apostles Hotel, in the gorgeous room filled with mirrors. We absolutely love this glamorous venue, as it provides the perfect canvas for the bridal preparation, with all the soft colours, luxurious decor and fine details. Janis walked out of the 12 Apostles hotel looking like a princess!

Clinton scheduled his preparation in The Bay Hotel in Cams Bay. Stylish, minimalistic interiors and the resort-like surroundings made the photos look like a fashion catalogue from french riviera. Great choice of the venue!

The weather that day was absolutely perfect. Janis and Clinton said "I do" as the sun was setting over the mountains at Suikerbossie. The bride looked absolutely breathtaking as she walked down the aisle on the arm of her father.  The couple exchanged rings and sealed their commitment in a long kiss. The ceremony was followed by a lively reception. The guests performed a choreographed routine involving everybody in the reception hall, followed by some vivid dancing.

We feel very privileged to have been able to capture Janis and Clinton's special day. Their wedding was an absolute delightto photograph and we wish them many years of love and happiness. 

 

 

What brought you together?

Janis: My sparkling personality of course (he he). The 2010 World Cup actually. I was working in Sandton and Clinton been in the Travel and Tourism industry was hosting a group from the UK. To my advantage, they were based in Johannesburg (he's actually from Cape Town) and he happened to be at mine and my girlfriends' regular stomping ground close to our work the one evening. We did the corny 'eyes locked thing' in a room full of people, after some chit chat and other things he convinced me that we are a minor two hour flight away from each other. And so started our long distance relationship...

 

 

What was the one special memory of your wedding day?

Janis: He's teary eyes while approaching him down the aisle. My boy doesn't cry, so seeing him looking at me like that had me wanting to sprint to him.

 

 

Any advice for the future brides?

Janis: Get your mum, bridesmaid/bridesmaids or a sister to remind you to pause, and 'take it all in' every now and again on the day. The day goes ridiculously fast and before you know it, months of preparations and planning are over. Oh, and cliche as it is, don't fret the small stuff. So what if a few people that RSVP'd didn't show? You will still be Mrs {insert your fiance's surname here...} at the end of the day, and that is the whole point of the biggest day of your life, right?

Ilana and Jordan's Cape Town photo shoot https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2014/12/ilana-and-jordans-cape-town-photo-shoot Ilana and Jordan's Cape Town photo shoot

 

We have met these two amazing souls many years ago, while working onboard a cruise ship and going around the world. Even though the last time we saw them was at their wedding seven years ago, it feels like they never left! Within minutes we have restored the original bond we use to share many years ago. This is what true friends are like! 

I was delighted to be able to do this Cape Town photo shoot for Ilana and Jordan. The years have passed, but they still look each other in the eyes like they did on their wedding day! The connection these two lovebirds have is one of a kind. Even if I just captured a fraction of it, that would be enough. Jordan and Ilana have so much love for each other!

We wish them a lifetime filled with joy and laughter. 

​We also hope to see these two fantastic people more often, either here in Cape Town, or in Toronto.

Jana and Benji's Kilcairn Halloween wedding https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2014/12/jana-and-benjis-haloween-wedding Jana and Benji's Kilcairn Halloween wedding

 

 

Jana and Benji had their minds made up from the start: they are going to have a Kilcairn Halloween wedding and it is going to be inspired by "Corps Bride". There was no flowers an the reception, they were replaced by the night-shaded vegetables, such as eggplant and radishes. The bride and the bridesmaids did not carry a bouquet of flowers, they had the most beautiful bouquets made of purple and silver coloured buttons and broches. The tables were decorated with buttons of all shapes and sizes, carefully extracted from the grandma's wardrobe. We all got to take home a little voodoo doll keychains, with the message from the bride and the groom. Oh, I almost forgot: Jana walked down the aisle wearing a black and gold, halter neck dress, looking absolutely stunning! We all stood there speechless, admiring this beautiful and courageous girl! Benji was rocking a fabulous, custom made suit/uniform, with antique buttons going across his chest.

 

 

Jana and Benji's touching wedding ceremony was followed by a lively (despite rather cryptic theme) reception, with some spectacular dancing and Halloween themed photo tooth. The couple carved faces in pumpkins and got all sorts of Halloween-themed accessories to take photos with. Another surprise for everyone was the first dance. Not only Jana and Benji surprised everybody with a performance class dance routine, they did it to a hard rock song! What a fantastic show! 

We wish those two incredible people many more dances together and many more great celebrations with their loved ones. We would like to thank Jana and Benji for including us in their special day and making us part of the wedding. We hope our friendship goes far beyond this spectacular event!

 

 

What brought you together?         

Definitely Terry Pratchett. I would never have given him a second thought if he had not started talking to me about my favourite Author. He was interested in me, but I did not care until that night.

 

What was the one special memory of your wedding?

Definitely the wedding dance! Having excercised and practised so much, it was great being able to leave everyone gobsmacked. Waltzing on a Slipknot song…. Would love to see that topped!

 

Any advice for the future brides?

Do not stress? Who cares? This is one day in your life. It is what happens afterwards that matters. So if you start worrying about the little things, you will not be enjoying an amazing day!

Comine and Charl's Overberg wedding https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2014/12/comine-and-charls-overberg-wedding Comine and Charl's Overberg wedding

 

 

Comine and Charl said "I do" in the chapel at De Oudekraal. We truly enjoyed their rustic Overberg wedding and the entire experience of capturing the beauty of the farmlands. This lovely venue, located in the heart of Overberg, brings the rustic elements and the touch of nature together. Comine designed beautiful stationery to complement the style of the venue. The theme of the decor was birds, and the bride sneaked images and names of birds into everything. The tables were named after birds and every guest received a miniature cactus plant as a thank you gift. 

We were astonished by the beauty of the Overberg! This spacious land with endless fields and lush greenery provides a perfect background for awesome wedding photography. With such a beautiful couple like Comine and Charl, it's a recipe for stunning images! You two have made the perfect choice to get married in the Overberg!

1. What brought you together?

In life every single person wants to find Mr or Ms Right. . .  In our case religion was the biggest attraction. But of course the first thing is physical attraction then interests. Mine is superbike and my wife loves jogging or anything outdoors, fortuitously for me she was in to superbikes. We found a good balance of compromising and supporting each other. Anything that meant we could do something together and spends time was done. We lived 60 km from one another, I won’t lie it was tough at times but if it’s the right person it will work out. We believe that in the end faith brought us together and we thank the Lord!!

 

2. What was the one special memory of your wedding day?

(A) Bride: I would say everything but if I must pick one, it would be when I walked in to the church and saw Charl’s face.  The look in his eyes and biting his lip is something that I will remember for the rest of my life.

(A) Groom: To me I would say was to slide the ring over Comine’s finger, saying  i do witch after our eyes locked

 

3. Any advice for the future brides?

(A) You can’t choose the weather so don’t let it spoil anything, also some people will not pitch or cancel one week prior to the wedding. . . That said, you won’t even notice them missing. The hole day goes by so quickly, soak up every second and ‘dance like no one’s watching’!!!!

 

Venue: De Oudekraal

Aimee and Andre's Beloftebos wedding https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2014/12/aimee-and-andres-beloftebos-wedding Aimee and Andre's Beloftebos wedding

 

Aimee and Andre tied the knot on the 8th of November 2014. Their stunning Beloftebos wedding was a glamorous and fun event! Beloftebos is the one wedding venue that doesn't need introduction. The lavish forest makes such a romantic setting for wedding ceremonies! Beloftebos' famous giant tree, now reclining on it's side, frames the shots just perfect and provides a great platform for creative wedding photography. Aimee arrived in a Jeep, especially sprayed white and decorated with flowers for the occasion. The bride left us all speechless as she walked down the aisle accompanied by her dad. Aimee and Andre's touching ceremony finished of with showers of purple fynbos confetti. Beloftebos provides endless picture perfect locations to do amazing wedding photographs! We truly enjoyed watching Aimee and Andre's romantic moments and making sure their memories are captured for a lifetime.

 

What brought you together:

We grew up in the same neighbourhood and I was the annoying little sister of Andre's friend. After Andre went to a different highschool as I did, we did not see much of each other for years. Before Andre left for collage we reconnected on the beach with friends during the Desember holiday. We have been inseprable since.

 

 

Special memory of the wedding:

When I walked down the isle in the most beautifull forest chaple, with not a breeze of wind blowing, my dad on my side, my husband-to-be smiling back at me and my mother in tears, it was the most magical moment of my life.

 

 

Advise for future brides:

Don't let anything get you down on your wedding day. If something is not exactly as you have planned it to be, do not worry. Your guests will not know it was supposed to be different and I'm sure they will still think it is perfect.

Rehana and Bradley's Nooitgedacht muslim wedding photography https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2014/11/rehana-and-bradleys-nooitgedacht-muslim-wedding-photography Rehana and Bradley's Nooitgedacht muslim wedding photography

 

 

Rehana and Bradley, now called Basheer, joined their paths together in the beautiful ceremony at Nooitgedacht. The bride looked like a real life princess and left us all speechless when she walked down the reception hall. The groom also looked very stylish in the dark blue suit. We would like to congratulate this beautiful couple and wish them many years filled with love and happiness. They truly are inseparable! Thank you, Rehana and Bradley, for choosing us to capture your Nooitgedacht muslim wedding photography. It was an honour and a pleasure to be part of your special day!

Rehana and Bradley shared their journey with us:

Our life story:

 
What brought us together: 
We have been good friends for many years we have always been there for each other. Nothing brought us together it was destiny "meant to be" we were each others best friend. I married my soul mate and best friend! 
 
 
Special memory of our wedding day: 
I must say the moment he walked through the door after mosque and I realised that he was no longer my friend, boyfriend or fiance. He was now my husband, that moment was overwhelming and special especially when he put the ring on my finger. It was an emotional and overwhelmingly joyous occasion, especially due to the fact that my mom never lived to witness the moment as she passed away from cancer about a month before the wedding that she planned and wished to see and the fact that my dad had to go through giving his daughter away on his own.
 
 
Advice for future brides: 
This is a special time in your life, take in every moment and don't get so deep into the planning that you forget to savour the small moments. If you have your parents with you to witness the day appreciate it, thank them be grateful for them. I was not so lucky to have had my mom there which was the hardest thing to go through, but my dad was my support and my anchor and stood in as if I had both my parents. Take in every moment with your husband on the day as it goes by so quickly. Enjoy the planning and the day to the fullest!

Quanita and Brent's destination wedding photography https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2014/11/quanita-and-brents-destination-wedding-photography Quanita and Brent's destination wedding photography

 

destination wedding photography1_cover

 

Quanita and Brent joined their paths together in a beautiful ceremony in Concordia, Namaqualand. They have made it through months of long-distance relationship, when Quanita took a challenge of working on the cruise liner as a beautician. This time away from each other only made their relationship stronger! Quanita and Brent said "I do" in the historic church, dating 150 years back. The bride looked breathtaking as she walked down the aisle towards her future husband. Quanita designed every little detail of her wedding, from the accessories on her shoes to amazing DIY decor of the reception hall. The super creative, earth-inspired decor transformed the venue into a dream celebration hall. Endless drapings and fairy lights completed the look! Their wedding guests enjoyed this fine celebration long into the night. We asked the bride to share some of the memories of her big day.

Any advice for the future brides?

Plan ahead, know what you want and don't wait till the last minute. And make planning enjoyable not stressful, if you stress you will forget. Be creative and different, and do things by hand to save costs.

Mardre and Hanro's Kronenberg wedding photography https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2014/11/mardre-and-hanros-kronenberg-wedding-photography Mardre and Hanro's Kronenberg wedding photography

 

 

Mardre and Hanro said "I do" on the 4th of October at Kronenberg Estate. The bride looked stunning in her open-back dress, as she walked down the stone staircase to the bottom of the amphitheatre. The touching ceremony, accompanied with live music, was followed by the joyfull reception. We loved the earth-inspired decor, filled with little rocks, succulent plants and proteas. Even the cake was decorated with some of the plants! The candle-lit reception was the perfect background for Mardre and Hanro's romantic first dance. The family and friends soon followed them on the dance floor in some spectacular dance moves! Mardre and Hanro's Kronrnber wedding photography was a true delight - this place is build for photos! We captured some great shots around the venue and in the winyards surrounding the venue. This fabulous couple looked so in love on their wedding day! It was a true pleasure to capture Mardre and Hanro's special moments. We wish them a lifetime filled with love and happiness!

 

"We met on the action netball court where we played against one another. We have never met before up until that day. During the game he threw the ball to one of his team mates and as I intercepted the ball I broke my finger. And that is the way we met. My husband broke my finger. hahaha. You can just imagine the laughs we still get up until today. But what really brought us together is the fact that we both have the same moral values and we fill up each other completely. We are both very passionate people and we both love sport very much. As a little girl I always said I want to marry a guy that is like my dad. And that is exactly what Hanro is. He is my prince charming."

 

"The most memorable moment for me was definitely to see my husband standing at the bottom of the stairs, waiting for me. And from there onwards is everything that happened basically for e a memorable moment. It was really my dream wedding and it exceeds all of my expectations.

Hanro’s memorable moment was the moment he saw me down walking down the aisle, or in this case the stairs. And then off course the part where the dominee said that we are now officially husband and wife. And that he may now kiss his bride."

 
"The advice I have for young brides is to really enjoy every part of your wedding. From the moment you've got engaged till your wedding day. Then do everything together. We girls tend to take over the wedding planning, but don’t forget that it is also your fiancé’s wedding day. Listen to him, and what he also would like on the day. Make every choice together. Then take in as much as possible. Everyone has probably already told you that the day went by so quickly, but it is really true. And most of all, don’t stress. I also stressed but in the end you realized it was really all for nothing. It is your wedding day and nothing will mess it up."

 

Venue: Kronenburg

Chantel and Morne's aviation engagement shoot https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2014/10/chantel-and-mornes-aviation-engagement-shoot Chantel and Morne's aviation engagement shoot

 

 

Finally, we get to share this gorgeous shoot with the world!

Chantel and Morne are getting married in December this year and we are going to be their wedding photographers. Before that happens, we did a pre-run! Andre and I had a pleasure to photograph this lovely couple with some historic planes. Chantel and Morne chose this vintage setting for their aviation engagement shoot, and it was a prefect choice! Check out the colours and the lines of those planes! The couple played their roles perfectly, Morne being the pilot and Chantel saying "good bye" before the flight. We had tons of fun during this aviation engagement shoot and hopefully we convinced Chantel and Morne that posing for photos with us is easy!

We wish Chantel and Morne good luck bringing together the last details of their wedding.

This session was made possible by Chris from Ysterplaat Aviation Museum. You, Sir, rock!

Christelle and Devon's Leipzig wedding video https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2014/10/christelle-and-devons-leipzig-wedding-video Christelle and Devon's Leipzig wedding video

 

Leipzig wedding videoBlog Cover

 

Christelle and Devon said "I do" in the gorgeous scenery of Leipzig Country House. It was our first Leipzig wedding video and we are totally in love with this venue! The ceremony was conducted outdoor under the massive tree, the reception took place in the historic cellar, where the wine used to be stored in massive tanks. This tastefully decorated room provided a stunning scenery for Christelle and Devon's romantic wedding. The bride chose pink as the leading colour for the wedding and she incorporated the elements of it throughout the ceremony and the reception. The cascades of flowers decorated each table, the bridesmaids looked fabulous in their romantic pink dresses. Even the groom and the groomsmen wore pink ties! We really enjoyed capturing this romantic Leipzig wedding video. Christelle and Devon were such an amazing couple, enjoying every moment of their special day! 

We would like to congratulate the newlyweds and wish them many years of joy and happiness together.

The bride shared her experience from the wedding day with us:

"For me the whole wedding was perfect, I enjoyed every moment, wish we can get married again! It was nice to see how our families and friends enjoyed our special day as well. My advice for future brides will be to enjoy the day and not stress over small things that might go “wrong” because the day goes so fast. My husband also says he enjoyed the wedding but for him the most memorable part was the ‘couple shoot’ because it felt like we had our private time away from the guest."

Julia and Neal's Hermanus wedding photography https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2014/10/julia-and-neals-hermanus-wedding-photography Julia and Neal's Hermanus wedding photography

 

 

Julia and Neal tied the knot in the lovely chapel at the Volmoed estate in Hermanus. The bride looked breathtaking in her purple dress and a shimmering silver veil, as she walked down the aisle with her father. The reception, hosted at The Classrom, gathered friends and family from around the world. The venue was filled with the most unique flowers, carefully picked by the bride. One could tell that the bride is a plant biologist, the selection of bloom was incredible! From opulent orchids to wild field flowers, every table decor was unique and original. Our favourite was the cake! Julia and Neal decided to break away from the tradition of a sweet wedding cake and they served the cheese cake. No, not the cheesecake, the massive tower made of different kinds of cheese, surrounded with fruit and nuts. The quests enjoyed some fine cheese while we sneaked away for some romantic Hermanus wedding photography. The couple took us to some spectacular spots by the ocean! Julia and Neal looked fabulous posing on the rocks, with the waves crashing behind them. It was a wedding photographers dream to capture this gorgeous bride and a handsome groom in such a stunning location. The sunset splashed out some spectacular colours, right in time to create some timeless wedding images. We returned to The Classroom just after  the sunset for the wedding reception. 

We would like to congratulate Julia and Neal on hosting this original and lavish wedding and wish the newlyweds many years of joy and happiness. We feel honoured to be trusted to capture this special couple's memories!

 

 

Here is some stories and tips that Julia kindly shared with us:

"I slimmed down with Herbalife before I started dress shopping, as I went down from a size 12 to a size 6, and using the products really helped me to get into the best of health and shape up. Clean eating and lots of water were also important in terms of that. I hoped to get round to more exercise to build more muscle, but didn't do nearly as much there as I hoped. The honeymoon and newly married life have been providing plenty of healthy exercise though - so shaping up even more now :)"

 

 
 

"Neal and I met online (Dating Buzz/Goodhope FM Dating). We are both in our 30's, and the pool of available people is different to in your 20's. I had never tried online dating before, but it was a good experience, provided you keep your wits about you and filter out the undesirables, creating a honest profile means most of the awkward questions are dealt with prior to meeting, and you get to know one another on an intellectual level before making eye contact. Also online you get to specify exactly what you want, so you increase your likelihood of finding what you are looking for, with common interests. When you eventually are comfortable enough with each other to meet, you will immediately know whether there is chemistry to pursue the relationship....and from there its like normal dating.....except you are well prepared for your first meeting."

 

 
 
 
 

"The whole day was like a dream... I still remember quite a lot of detail, but what I will remember for a long time, aside from being engulfed in love, and the complete sense of euphoria, would probably be Neal's face when he saw me, and his overwhelmed tears as I joined him at the altar.... And of course the funny stuff - like me putting the ring on his wrong finger.... :) Our cake was exactly as I wanted it, the photo-session was amazing, the weather played along perfectly (although there was no breeze to blow the veil), the sunset was spectacular, Kitty was so charismatic - definitely an experience we will remember as part of what made the day so special! Our wedding was small & intimate so it was really nice to spend time with a few of the people who are really close, special and meaningful in our lives.... The food was excellent, and we did not make a single mistake in our dance (thanks Phox dance school). There were actually so many people involved who contributed to it running so smoothly and perfectly - Ronel Nel, my coordinator, Silke Viljoen, doing hair & make-up, Johanna Viljoen, who made us such beautiful bouquets and interesting flower arrangements, and of course everyone in the bridal party... Rev Barry Wood had such a beautiful and appropriate message, Volmoed was a beautiful venue and The Classroom was great for the reception!

It was also a special surprise when Dr Isaac Raj Alanka, who came through to join us from India and prayed a special blessing for us, also presented us with beautiful matching rings.... That was very special and meaningful - wonderful symbolism! And of course the purple dress!!! It was such a fun, easy to wear, striking dress that practically danced by itself :)"

 
 
 
"Tips for future brides.... Start planning well in advance with whatever you can - that will reduce the stress as the big day draws nearer....there is so much detail to think about. Make it a mission to enjoy every aspect of it....relax, take it easy and enjoy the journey. Get good people in your bridal party / coordination team - it really helps to have experienced people involved! I literally floated through the day... And enjoy it - no matter how it turns out.....because that is how it was meant to be :)
 
Planning a wedding together with your partner is actually a great preparation for marriage, as there is so much detail to agree on... Its a nice start to the true merging of 2 lives."

Aimee and Andre are getting married in November this year. We did this beach photo shoot at Blouberg for them to capture some love and emotions before their wedding day. Engagement photo session is such an awesome thing to do! The couple gets familiar with the camera and comfortable with the poses. We can discover what angles work for the couple and what kind of photos we are going to do on their wedding day. This beach photo shoot proved it one more time!

Landi and Gerhard are tying the knot on the 21st of March 2015 at the spectacular Cape Point Vineyards. We had a pleasure to capture this lovely couple on one of the gorgeous beaches near 12 Apostles Hotel and Spa. It was such a treat to photograph these two beautiful people together! Landi and Gerhard have this amazing connection that makes them act naturally. They are truly enjoying each other's company and they have a lot of fun together! Since they are both good looking and spontaneous, this Cape Town engagement shoot was bound to look goregous! I can't wait to see Landi on her wedding day, having her hair and make-up done and dressing up in her glamorous wedding gown! This engagement session is a solid proof that the camera loves Landi.

Great wedding venues by Cape Town wedding photographers https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2014/9/great-wedding-venues-by-cape-town-wedding-photographers Great wedding venues by Cape Town wedding photographers

Cape Town wedding photographersCape Town wedding photographers

Being full time Cape Town wedding photographers, we come in contact with a number of wedding venues on a regular basis. We have to admit our wedding couples have had great taste in picking venues for their special day! The places we have visited were always beautiful, unique and well managed. We consider ourselves very lucky!

Saying that, there are some places that just throw us, experienced Cape Town wedding photographers, on our knees. The scenery is breathtaking, the photo opportunities are endless and the staff and the service they provide are top end.

The selection of venues you are about to encounter is purely subjective. Our choice is not influenced by the size of the venue or it’s location. The fact that we love the venue is dictated only by the experience we have had working there. There are a couple of things that form parts of this experience. The beauty of the scenery is number one, of course, since we are Cape Town wedding photographers. The service is another big thing. We believe, if the venue pays attention to the needs of service providers, they will definitely spoil our bride! We want to make sure no effort has been spared in making your day absolutely perfect. We would like to give recognition to a few places that recently impressed us with great standards of service and picture perfect scenery.

How to find a great wedding photographer in Cape Town? https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2014/7/how-to-find-a-great-wedding-photographer-in-cape-town How to find a great wedding photographer in Cape Town?

 

how to choose a wedding photographer

 

 

If you wonder how to find a great wedding photographer in Cape Town, this article is for you! Not only there is so many of them, each wedding photographer would offer a specific, unique style of work. What are the questions you should be asking wedding photographer to find out if they are the perfect match for your Big Day?

Before you start, decide on the style of photography you prefer. Your basic choice is between natural light photographer and someone who works with lights. Those two approaches produce different results, from low-contrast, dreamy photography to dramatic, magazine-like photos.

Here are the questions you should be asking your photographer

  1. Do you specialise in the style of photography I like?
    "wedding photographer in Cape Town"

  2. Are you available on the date?

  3. Are you going to be the person taking photos at our wedding? Some photographers have teams working for them, make sure that you are getting the same person. "wedding photographer in Cape Town"

  4. Is wedding photography your full-time career? How long have you been doing it for? (You want to make sure you are getting someone who is experienced and not just so-called “weekend warrior”, who is just making some extra cash on the side. Full time wedding photographers will be insured and they will have a back-up camera and archive solution) "wedding photographer in Cape Town"

  5. How long am I going to wait for my photos?

  6. Do I get an album and can I see the sample, please?

  7. Once you have thinned out the list of potential candidates, meet the finalists face to face.

  8. Have a chat with that person and observe how polite and patient the photographer is. Ask yourself: Is this the person I would like to have around on my wedding day, when I’m stressed, overheated, dehydrated and ready to faint? Are they going to keep me calm and make me feel relaxed? Remember, the photographer’s personality is just as important as the beautiful wedding photos they take)              "wedding photographer in Cape Town"

  9. Consult with your significant other and make sure you both like the photographer. Pick the one that suits your budget. 

  10. Demand to sign the contract, so you have the legal ground in case something happens. Pay the deposit to secure your date. Your dream wedding photographer is yours!

 

Good luck from the Vizion Photo Team!

Cynthia and Shane's Cellars Hohenort wedding https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2014/7/cynthia-and-shanes-cellars-hohenort-wedding Cynthia and Shane's Cellars Hohenort wedding

Cynthia and Shane's Cellars Hohenort wedding was a celebration of love and style. Shane had his mind set on the "black tie" celebration, Cynthia tastefully chose navy blue as a leading colour. The wedding ceremony took place in the historical Manor House, with several fireplaces keeping the guests warm. This unique interior with high ceilings and wooden staircases going around the room looks and feels almost like a cathedral. Stella and Ethan,  the wedding couple's children, made the most beautiful flower girl and he ring bearer. The bride and groom invited their children to join them during the vows and the ring exchange. The little ones were fascinated with the ceremony! Cynthia and Shane had two more rings made with their children's dates of birth engraved. It was lovely to watch the kids actively take part in their parents wedding ceremony! 

We asked the bride and the groom to share with us the most memorable part of their wedding experience:

For Shane – standing alongside Cynthia during our marriage ceremony.

For Cynthia – the whole day was memorable – there were aspects of the preparation, the ceremony itself, the time we spent together for our photographs and the dinner, speeches, first dance and the dance party that I will treasure forever.

 

 

The weather cleared out and we had some spectacular clouds for our wedding photography session at Cellars' gardens. These exceptional gardens, awarded the prestigious Relais & Châteaux Garden Award, are the result of Liz McGrath's, the owner, 20-years vision and dedication. There are countless picture-perfect locations around the Cellars Hohenort to take wedding photos! From the rose gardens, the duck pond, the wine orchards, to the newly renovated interiors of the Greenhouse restaurant. We didn't want to stop taking this lovely couple's wedding photos! The reception was hosted at the Conservatory restaurant, which forms part of the Cellars-Hohenort wedding wenue. The wedding decor was simple yet very elegant, including branches and candles placed on the tables as centrepieces. The formalities were followed by  some exceptional dancing! 

 

 

Here is a piece of advice from the wedding couple:

From Shane – be present and enjoy the day – time accelerates when you are having fun with close friends and family on the most important day of your life!

From Cynthia – we gave ourselves 100 days to plan our Wedding – it was the best thing we did. There was enough time to look at options, make a decision and then get on with the next item on the to do list. Take time to enjoy the wholeness of the occasion – and don’t let anyone distract you  from your dream vision. Having ‘made our own ring bearer and flower girl’ just added enormity of the event and made it truly special that they were a part of our special day. (This point, wouldn’t necessarily be advise that I would give – for those with kids, who are unsure of taking the plunge – go on - dive in!)

Tarryn and Morne's 12 Apostles wedding photography https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2014/6/tarryn-and-mornes-twelve-apostles-wedding Tarryn and Morne's 12 Apostles wedding photography

 

 
Tarryn and Morne Highlight
 

We were delighted to find out we are going to be the team of wedding photographers and videographers for this wedding! Tarryn and Morne's 12 Apostles wedding photography looks like a fairytale story. When such a beautiful bride and a stylish groom get married at the 12 Apostles, the wedding video must look like a dream!

When these two lovely souls met a few years ago, they wouldn't expect that they friendship will turn into love and soon they will be celebrating 12 Apostles wedding. Tarryn and Morne met through a mutual friend. Tarryn stayed in Mossel Bay and Morne stayed in Cape Town. Morne took Tarryn to dinner one night in Cape Town, and while she was in the bathroom he ordered a large, rather expensive platter of sushi. When Tarryn returned to the table, the first thing she saw was.... EEEEEW! After that night, they however found each other and started to express their feelings towards each other! Tarryn packed her entire room up in Morne’s car and came to Cape Town to start a new life! Their mutual friend shared a story that really meant a lot. At their best friend’s wedding, Tarryn was a bridesmaid and Morne was a groomsmen, and as she was walking down the beach towards them, Morne leant over to this friend and said... “Im going to marry that girl.” 3 years later they are married and more in love than ever before!

 

 

Tarryn and Morne celebrated their wedding in one of the most stunning venues in South Africa, the 12 Apostles Hotel. The weather was just perfect when they said their vows to each other, with dramatic clouds and the sun reflecting in the surface of the ocean. Tarryn looked absolutely beautiful in the classic gown she chose for the wedding. The couple placed colourful lanterns along the aisle and filled the walkway with rose petals. Their 12 Apostles wedding turned out exactly like they envisioned!

 

 

The most memorable part of Tarryn and Morne's wedding day was the part when they united as one with the candles as a symbol. The whole day was a memory, everything turned our perfect! It was pouring with rain the morning of our wedding and they were supposed to get married outside. The wedding coordinator kept coming to the bride asking whether they should set up outside or inside, all the weather sites said that it will be raining at 3pm during the ceremony! Poor bride was in tears! She went to Morne’s dad and asked him for advise and all he said: “HAVE FAITH”. The couple decided their wedding is going to be outside 12 Apostles, knowing that the guests will probably be soaking wet! As Tarryn walked down the aisle it was extremely overcast, but when she stood by Morne and the minister started his service and they said “I Do” the sun light up behind and it turned out to be beautiful! 

 

 

There is no better place in Cape Town for wedding photography then the mountains surrounding the Twelve Apostles hotel! The raw beauty of this place is definitely one of a kind, the peaks in the background and indigenous plants everywhere is the true representation of the Cape. Afterwards we discovered a small, hidden beach just in time for sunset. Tarryn looked incredible standing on the massive boulders with the epic sunset behind her. After this photo shoot felt trully fulfilled as wedding photographers and videographers. Tarryn and Morne have such a unique connection between them! 

 

 

Congratulations on putting together this elaborate yet touching wedding!

 

Brides Advise – I know that it is stressful time planning a wedding! We were planning a wedding under extremely stressful circumstances, but we had to make it work! If I could go back, I would change one thing and that would be to just take a step back and breath! The day goes by so fast, don’t allow stress to take a second away from you. Plan everything and get things done sooner than later! I left a lot of stuff for the week before the wedding! Do not do that! Keep the last week for yourself, go spend time in the spa and relax!

Grooms – Plan in advance, do a little bit every night and just remember why you are doing everything, to make your soul mate your wife, For Life!

Georgina and Niall, Rickety Bridge Rock'n Roll wedding https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2014/6/georgina-and-niall-rockn-roll-wedding Georgina and Niall, Rickety Bridge Rock'n Roll wedding

 

Georgina and Niall totally rocked their Rickety Bridge Rock'n Roll wedding! This couple had their minds set on a specific theme and it was all about Rock'n Roll! Starting from Georgina's fabulous gown that was custom designed for her (see the photos!) through stationery and reception decor. One more time the ladies from Secret Diary Design and Print created a unique, customized and daring stationery that set the tone for this fun wedding. All the elements of the stationery and decor evolved around music and stage! The guests were given an "all access pass" at the entrance, like the ones you receive at rock concerts. The pass contained an order of the ceremony and the menu. There tables were named by quotes from famous rock songs, each guest received a vinyl record with a logo and a photograph of the couple. Yes, Georgina and Niall had a logo made for their Rickety Bridge Rock'n Roll wedding!

 

The outdoor ceremony at Rickety Bridge was a true delight. I absolutely love May weddings, with all the orange and red leaves in the wynyards. Georgina and Niall placed little cards with messages about love under some of the guest's seats. They official called the numbers during the ceremony and the guests stood up and red the messages. The groom's vows were quite spectacular too, a friend accompanied Niall with the song on the guitar. There was loads of tears, as the moment was truly emotional and special. After the ceremony the guests showered the couple with black and white streamers. 

 

 

The reception was generously lit with candles and fairy lights. The guests surrounded Georgina and Niall with sparklers for their first dance, what created a great atmosphere at their Rickety Bridge Rock'n Roll wedding! The lively dancing carried on long into the night. At midnight a bunch of Star Wars clones came out and turned all the photographs of the musical instruments around, to reveal the posters from Star Wars. The couple pulled out their light sabres and celebrated the 4th of May, the Star Wars day. The guests loved the photo booth with Dart Vader mask and light sabres. 

 

We loved every minute of this creative, fun and unconventional wedding. Well done, Georgina and Niall, for choosing this original and fun theme and executing it down to the finest details. We wish you many more great celebrations with your amazing family and friends. We are sure you two are going to rock it all the way!

We photographed and filmed this incredible styled shoot a few months ago for Celeste Styled Events, a few months later we saw Urban Romance in the Wedding Inspirations Magazine. From the beginning we loved Celeste's fresh concept and creative approach to styling. Everything from the venue selection, model, decor and styling, to sophisticated gown, spoke of modern and daring. Everybody came onboard with the concept of Urban Romance. The Secret Diary created an illusive, see-through stationery and invitations, Janita Toerien provided us with one of her exquisite wedding gowns, Corle Barnard surprised us with the most creative makeup and hair. Giselle, the model, patiently presented all our creations and crazy ideas. Today, we finally get to see Urban Romance in the Wedding Inspirations Magazine. It was totally worth the wait, the two spreads filled with Celeste's brilliant ideas and our photography was a royal treat!

Caitlin and Douglas' Gabrielskloof wedding https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2014/6/caitlin-and-douglas-wedding Caitlin and Douglas' Gabrielskloof wedding

Gabrielskloof wedding

Caitlin and Douglas said "I do" in a gorgeous chapel at the Gabrielskloof Wine Estate. The groom referred to his Scotisch heritage with some tasteful details present at the ceremony and the reception. Him and the groomsmen wore tartan pattern on their ties, there was ribbons and flowers in those traditional colours. The bridesmaids looked lovely in their green dresses, with red scarves across the shoulders. The bride carried a bouquet of wild flowers, with an amazing white protea in the centre. The story says it wasn't a season for this magnificent flower, therefore the whole army of people went into the mountain to look for one! However, the best of all was the bride's dress. It's the same dress that Caitlin's grandmother had tailored for her wedding fifty years ago. Not only it fitted her granddaughter perfectly, it looked amazing and very much i fashion! It was absolutely magical watching the third generation of these beautiful women wear this very special dress. Everybody agreed that grandma had a very good taste back in the days!

This Gabrielskloof wedding featured a touching ceremony and a lovely reception. After the speeches the bride and the groom opened the dance floor. It was such a perfect day for this young couple to pledge their love to each other and start a new life together. We wish them all the love and happiness and many more celebrations with friends and family.

Adi and Shaun's Cape Town beach wedding https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2014/5/adi-and-shauns-beach-wedding Adi and Shaun's Cape Town beach wedding

 

Taylor 192Taylor 192

 

There is nothing more romantic than a Cape Town beach wedding, with the iconic Table Mountain in the background! Adi and Shaun travelled all the way from Namibia to tie the knot in this very special place. Their said their vows and exchanged rings as the sun was setting over the ocean. Table Bay provided a magnificent background for their magical, wind-swept portraits. 

 

Adi was a first year student & she needed a partner for the ​2nd year student's graduation ball. One of her friends introduced her to Shaun, as she thought they would make a perfect couple. But the two of them didn't really connect on the first meeting, until a year later. They both went out with their friends and Shaun was sitting quietly in the corner of the room. Adi kept thinking that he looks very familiar and after a few minutes she decided to go over to Shaun and ask him if they've met before. It turned out they knew each other from before and they had a lovely time for the rest of that night. Adi and Shaun fell completely in love that evening and from there on they just grew closer and closer and that year they went to Adi's graduation as a couple. 3 months after they met for the second time Adi's dad passed away. Shaun has helped Adi make it through this difficult time and became her anchor, her best friend and everything a girl could ever ask for.

Now, 5 years later, after everything they have been through together, they say they have found their true soul mates. Their Cape Town beach wedding united these two souls together.Cape Town beach wedding

 

​What was the most memorable part of their day?

Adi: "The entire experience. Being able to have all our family & friend share this day with us and seeing all the joy, love & emotions that goes into such special day.​"

Shaun: "The ceremony; knowing that we are now committing ourselves to each other, in front of God." 

 

 

The lavish reception decor in burgundy and turquoise was a true delight! Cascades of flowers combined with hundreds of candles, fairy lights and lush stationery created a truly unique setting for the reception. All the little details followed the colours of their wedding, even the bubbly was turquoise! 

 

Here is a piece of advice from the bride:

"Practice at your dress fittings if you are wearing a dress with buttons.​

Normally during fittings, they only close the zipper but make sure to button-up your dress at least once as this can be very tricky & time consuming on the wedding day (even if the dress isn't that tight fitted) 

Don't stress too much, the day goes by much quicker than you are told.

Just try and relax, take it all in and remember why you are getting married."

Jessica and Gary's Saldanha wedding https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2014/5/jessica-and-garys-destination-wedding Jessica and Gary's Saldanha wedding

Saldanha wedding is such a romantic idea! Love was in the air when Jessica and Gary exchanged rings and pledged their love to each other on the beautiful day on the West Coast. The serene Blue Bay Lodge wedding venue was the perfect setting for this dream day they had planned to the finest details. Jessica looked picture perfect in her stunning wedding dress she had shipped all the way from Ukraine. The incredible detail of the dress and fine fabric made this tall, gorgeous girl look like a Cinderella! Everybody present at the ceremony, including all the venue staff, gasped when she was walking down the aisle on the arm of her father. She was a truly radiant and stunning bride! Beautiful ceremony followed with touching vows, left everybody in happy tears. Jessica and Gary's Saldanha wedding was a dream come true.

Gary and Jessica first met each other on a night out on the town. Although strangers at first, it soon became clear that they were meant to be...and that they actually shared the same group of friends - they were destined to meet! From the get go, they have always had fun with each other and complimented each other so well. They both truly say they are best friends. It wasn't long after that it was obvious they had fallen in love.

"Our wedding day was everything we had ever imagined it to be and much more. It really was perfect. For both of us, the most memorable part of our wedding was when I walked down the aisle. To be surrounded by the most special people in our lives, walking towards the man who stole my heart and who I will love forever, really is a moment I will never forget. At that point, I knew that I was truly the luckiest and happiest girl in the world and that Gary felt the same."
 
"For all the future brides and grooms - have a weekend away wedding - it really is the best experience ever. You are able to relax and enjoy the company of your guests on the Friday as well as the Saturday and the pressure is taken off to getting around to everyone on the Big Day. It is less stressful, and a bonus, many more opportunities and moments for wedding celebrations are created. Also, set a deadline 10 days/2 weeks before your wedding to have everything done and prepared. That way, you can enjoy the build up to your wedding and all the celebrations that are happening. Remember, this is a celebration of your love and is your time to enjoy!"

 

 

I'm sure the Blue Bay Lodge has seen some vivid celebrations, but Jessica and Gary's friends set a new standard in party time! The top-end sound system filled the room with beat all night long, the dancing was phenomenal, especially the Father and Daughter dance, choreographed to one of Michael Jackson's song! We have enjoyed every minute of this vibrant celebration and have frozen some priceless moments! Thank you for trusting us with your memories, we had a great time capturing them! We wish you all the best on your journey ahead.

Tiffany and Matthew's Cape Town beach photos https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2014/4/tiffany-and-matthews-steaming-engagement-session Tiffany and Matthew's Cape Town beach photos

 

Tiffany and Matthew found each other while they were both sailing the seven seas on a yacht. They have been inseparable since then. Tiffany is a gorgeous South African, Matthew is a handsome American. We photographed this beautiful couple on Clifton Four, the absolutely perfect location for a Cape Town beach photos. We were so spoiled with these great models and aspectacular location for this incredible engagement shoot! It was such a magical moment, when the love and the nature come together to be captured into timeless images. Tiffany and Matthew are amazing together, you can feel the connection between them. That's the reason why their Cape Town beach photos looks so awesome!

Carina and Wayne's Lagoon Beach Hotel wedding https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2014/4/carina-and-waynes-wedding Carina and Wayne's Lagoon Beach Hotel wedding

 

 

This beautiful couple sealed their love on the 22nd of March 2014 during the spectacular Lagoon Beach Hotel wedding. Carina looked absolutely breathtaking in the flowing dress she chose for the wedding. The reception hall hall was beautifully decorated in shades of blue - the bride's favourite colour. The nature provided some dramatic cloud displays for the photo session, making it an unforgettable experience. It was such a perfect day for the perfect couple.

After their Lagoon Beach Hotel wedding Wayne surprised Carina with a honeymoon in Thailand. Mr and Mrs Wilmore  enjoyed every minute of their trip together. We asked the newlyweds to share a secret of finding such a great match:

"Our journey started almost 3 years ago, when we came across each others profile on a dating website. Wayne made the first move when he saw a picture of Carina and thought “what a beautiful woman, I would really like to get to know her” and took the first step in sending a greeting message. Naturally Carina accepted and replied :) "

 
 
"Fast forward 3 years later to what was an amazing and absolutely memorable wedding. We had so many highlights of that day but one really memorable moment was looking into each others eyes and saying our wedding vows, committing our love to each other forever. We were both really nervous, but it all changed when Carina walked down the isle – we both saw each other and in that moment we felt the safety and security of the person we loved with all our hearts and this moment was beyond perfect."
 
 
"Advice to the future brides and grooms. Know that this is your day with the special person in your life, as a groom I can promise that you cannot mention enough how beautiful your wife looks, as a Bride, even with all the nerves and stresses that come with arranging a wedding, all the planning in the world cannot prepare you for the most magical feeling you will ever have when you walk down that isle to meet the most amazing man in your life – Love the Day and take in as much as you can! Our fairytale wedding was a dream come true, and now its time for Happily Ever After"

Julie and Mauri's Blue Horizon Estate wedding https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2014/4/julie-and-mauris-wedding Julie and Mauri's Blue Horizon Estate wedding

 

We have met Julie and Mauri nearly a year ago. They instantly won us over with their warm personalities and a great sense of humour. Finally the day arrived and Julie married the man of her dreams on the hill overlooking Simon's Town bay. Friends and family came from around the world to witness their Blue Horizon Estate wedding. The groom's relatives arrived in great force all the way from Chile. Simon's Town was the ultimate location for this ceremony and the weather turned out amazing! Julie and Mauri got married on the perfect day, surrounded by their loved ones. The groom picked an absolute gem of a location for their photos, it was a great experience watching the newlyweds enjoy the first hours of their married life in this stunning location.  Julie and Mauri's Blue Horizon Estate wedding was so much fun to photograph!

We asked Mauri and Julie to share their story with us and to tell us about their wedding day:

1. How did you two find each other? Who made the first move?  Although our paths had crossed many times, the year leading up to us starting to date was that of an amazing friendship which comfortably developed into a loving relationship. That was five and a half years ago!! Who made the first move… well let’s just say that a lady and a gent never tell!

2. What was the most memorable part of your wedding day? Perfect weather, perfect venue and all nearest and dearest with us on our special day! The very special moment when our eyes locked as I (Julie) walked down the aisle. There is no better feeling than the raw emotion of that moment. The brink of sharing our vows and the first husband and wife kiss. Amazing!

3. What advice would you give to the future brides and grooms? It is all in choosing the right venue at the right time of year! Picking a venue that offers multiple services on the day takes away all of the stress for the bride and groom. Even more important… don’t stress the small stuff. Ultimately it is about the two people committing to spend their lives together… everything else is a cherry on top!

Jaclyn and Justin's Cape Town beach photos https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2014/4/jaclyn-and-justins-magical-photo-shoot Jaclyn and Justin's Cape Town beach photos 

 

Jaclyn and Justin were the winners of our romantic photo session. We their Cape Town beach photos at the iconic Clifton Four beach. Jaclyn arrived fully prepared, with samples of photos and a bag full of great outfits. Justin looked "picture perfect" too, with his retro hat and suspenders. 

Taking photos of this beautiful couple in such a spectacular location was truly breathtaking. As the sun dipped into the horizon and the couple kissed, I knew we were capturing some magic. The perfect sunset poured all over the bay, making the air look like liquid gold. I think the images speak for themselves, they capture those rare moments when everything just comes together to create magic. Jaclyn and Justin's Cape Town beach photos captured the magic of the sunset and the connection of the couple.

 

We wish Jaclyn and Justin all the best on their journey ahead and we can't wait to see their wedding photos. They are going to have an amazing day!

Roberta and Ky's Simon's Town wedding photography https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2014/3/roberta-and-kys-wedding Roberta and Ky's Simon's Town wedding photography

 

 

From the beginning we were very excited for this Simon's Town wedding photography opportunity! We first met Roberta alone to discuss the details of their wedding. We were very curious about her fiancee, only to find out a few days before the wedding, he is absolutely charming! They've planned an intimate beach wedding on one of the most beautiful beaches in Simon's Town. Roberta looked amazing in her fitted dress and a crown of roses in her hair. The reception was held at the Blue Horizon Estate, a great venue overlooking Simon's Town, with a stunning view of the bay. We did their Simon's Town wedding photography all over the harbour and the streets. The citizens of Simon's Town were very friendly and kept inviting us to their shops!

 

We asked Roberta and Ky to share with us a few details from their engagement, as well as the wedding day:

1.      How did you two find each other? Who made the first move?

Roberta and I found each other by complete chance. I was taking a different route as I was visiting a friend that evening when I happened to be called over by one of my colleagues. Roberta was in the UK on a secondment at the time and she was out drinking  with a  few colleagues. I remember the first time we made eye contact with each other, I thought she was absolutely gorgeous and fell in love with her laugh and smile. I honestly thought I didn’t stand any chance but the gods were with me that day and she invited me to her leaving drinks the following week and we haven’t looked back ever since!

2.      What was the most memorable part of your wedding day?

Ky:

The most memorable part for me was standing at the “alter” waiting for Roberta. She looked absolutely stunning, more than I could have ever imagined. At that point, I realised that this was it, she would be mine for the rest of my life. Everything else just completed faded, all other feelings of  stress and anxiety completely washed away at just the sight of my future wife. I was just filled with this immense joy and happiness, a feeling I’ll remember the rest of my life.

Roberta:

The most memorable moment for me was when I made eye contact with Ky as I walked down the isle. The wedding stress melted away in an instant and it was that moment when I realised I was about to officially 
spend the rest of my life with my true love.

3. What advice would you give to the future brides and grooms?

The day flies by! It’s an absolute whirlwind and it’s so easy to get caught up with the small things. Just enjoy it! You’re the bride and groom so whatever happens, the day is about you and celebrating your love and commitment to each other!  It’s a work in progress!!!

Rose and Darren's Vrede en Lust wedding photos

 

Darren and Rose tied the knot on the 8th of February.We had the pleasure to capture their Vrede en Lust wedding photos. The bride walked down the aisle bare feet, wearing a stunning dress finished with a pink bow and a crown of pink roses. The song she chose for her entrance was the song from the Pink Panther! The bridesmaids looked absolutely beautiful in their infinity pastel dresses. There were pastel details everywhere, from the dance floor to the cupcakes and the flowers on the tables. The touching ceremony was followed by some serious dancing! Rose and Darren share a passion for the dance floor and their friends and family can also show some spectacular party moves. After the sunset we got to do some photos with some sparklers, they came out superb thanks to the involvement of the guests, drawing shapes and lines around the couple. Watching the sun go down over the mountain while capturing their Vrede en Lust wedding photos was a true delight. 

 

We asked Rose and Darren how they got to this point in their lives and what was the most memorable part of their wedding day:

"We met in a club - not very romantic, but we have had a very romantic relationship ever since! Our wedding day was the most magical day of our life. We cannot pinpoint our favourite part of our special day because every second of our day was amazing. A few of our most memorable parts was when Darren saw Rose walking down the aisle; when we had bubbles and rose petals thrown over us after signing the register and of course, having a boogie with everyone the whole night. Our advice to anyone on their wedding day would be to soak up every moment and spend as much time with your partner as possible. Do not get tired of taking photos because you will have these for the rest of your life:)"

There is nothing more romantic than getting engaged on top of the Table Mountain in Cape Town! How about an anniversary Table Mountain engagement shoot?

Nicole was born and raised in Cape Town, but she is currently living in the UK, where she met her handsome englishman. About a year ago, Kurtis took Nicole up the Table Mountain, where he got down on one knee, opened a little box and popped the question. Nicole said "Yes"! A year later they gathered their family and friends in Cape Town to celebrate their union. We are going to be their Cape Town wedding photographers!

How to build a wedding guest list https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2014/3/guest-list-building How to build a wedding guest list

Hi Brides to Be!

We all know how stressfull building the guest list can be. For me it is probably the hardest part of the preparation. Do you invite the aunt, that you saw last when you were five? How about all the family living overseas or the cousins and their partners - that's just the beginning. Then you have to make a decision weather to invite your school/university friends, your co-worker you see every day or your next-door neighbour that looks after your dog while you are away. One of the biggest questions you will face before your wedding day is how to build a wedding guest list.

It can be quite stressfull, especially if you are planning your wedding on a budget. Everybody is on some kind of a budget, even if you have a nice round number to blow on your wedding. Therefore certain decisions have to be made and of course your idea of the guest list might be slightly different to your parents idea. They would like to see all their brothers and sisters present and you would much rather invite more friends and have a massive party – this is where it gets complicated.

One of our recent grooms-to-be had this awesome idea of building the guest list. He simply says, without going into any details: "Would I buy you dinner?"

We wish it was that simple, but most of us have a large family, with plenty of aunties and uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews. The line has to be drawn somewhere. You either invite everybody with their offspring, or just the closest family. It all depends on the size of your wedding. 

It's great to have loads of guests at your wedding. It's such a nice feeling to be surrounded by everybody you grew up with, your family and your friends. Try to chat to each of your guests at least once during the evening, even if it's just a brief conversation – it will make them feel special and appreciated. Your guests went through a lot of effort to be there with you and celebrate your love.

But at the end of the day, the wedding is about you and your partner. Find time to be alone and tell each other how happy you are. You will be saying speeches in front of everybody, but saying it into your partner's ear will remind both of you that the wedding is a celebration of your love. 

If you are still wondering how to build a wedding guest list, this quick guide is for you! We've put together this little chart that could be useful for those less obvious choices:

Nicole and Kurtis' Cape Town wedding photography https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2014/3/nicole-and-kurtis-wedding Nicole and Kurtis' Cape Town wedding photography

 

 
It was a true delight for us to do Nicole and Kurtis' Cape Town wedding photography!

Nicole is a Cape Town beauty currently living in the UK, where she met her handsome englishman. About a year ago Kurtis took Nicole up the Table Mountain, where he got down on one knee, opened a little box and popped the question. Nicole said "Yes"! A year later they gathered their family and friends in Cape Town to celebrate their union. 

The ceremony took place at the biggest New Apostolic church in the area. This spectacular church is more like a theatre than a chapel and it looks absolutely amazing in photos! The sound of giant organs accompanied this lovely ceremony. Nicole and Kurtis chose the Rhodes Memorial for their photography session. Overlooking the city, this very special place provides a unique background for the family portraits and photographs of the newlyweds. Since the couple live in England, we wanted to give them images with their beloved Cape Town in the background. 

It was a delight for us to do Nicole and Kurtis' The Bay Hotel wedding photography! Their rotunda is a one of a kind place! With massive chandeliers as a centrepiece, tons of flowers and a fabulous light, the venue looked like a fairytale ballroom! We loved the details of the tables and the cascades of flowers everywhere. The first dance took everybody's breath away! Nicole looked like a princess dancing in the middle of this massive room with her prince! The red soles of her Loubutin's looked fantastic on the shiny dance floor!

Couple of days later we got to photograph this lovely couple in the place where everything started - on top of the Table Mountain. We found the spot where Kurtis proposed a year ago and photos of Mr and Mrs Reynolds! How special is that?

We truly enjoyed this gorgeous wedding, filled with love and happiness. Thank you Nicole and Kurtis for choosing Cape Town as a location for your wedding. We hope the two of you keep coming back to South Africa for some more timeless memories. We wish you only love and happiness on your journey ahead.

How to plan a wedding? Start here! https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2014/2/weddingplanning How to plan a wedding? Start here!

We've recently been chatting quite a bit about wedding planning. We got married in December 2012 on a small yacht sailing out of Cape Town, and thus bypassed a number of the planning hurdles that go into planning a big wedding. From chatting to many Brides-to-be and looking at wedding blogs, and magazines we've found that it could be quite hard to figure out where to start. There is so much information out there to filter through online, so we decided to compile a very compact, visually pleasing pictorial to help you get started. If you've already started, this could be a good exercise to see how you've done so far. If you are still wondering how to plan a wedding, start here!

Please note that this compact guide is far from being the complete guide to planning your special day as there are a many things you could add based upon the style, feel and budget of your special day.

 

how to plan a wedding

Choosing your venue: 

Firstly you need to decide whether you would like to have an outdoor or an indoor wedding. We love to be surrounded by nature, but make sure there is somewhere to hide in case of rain. You can choose between venues at the beach, on a wine farm, a classy hotel, a safari reserve, a country manor, or many more. There are so many options to choose from, so make sure it suits who you are and what you love. Do remember to have a rough idea of how many guests you're planning to have, as this will effect your options too.

Collect ideas:

You can use a diary, where you glue beautiful things. You can create a board on Pinterest ( I love it, because I can see what you like and what style of photography would suit you). Some people make a wedding website (this is also great as your friends can follow the preparations and build the excitement for your Big Day). You can collect fabrics, ribbons or simply take photos with your smartphone. Really, anything goes, as long as it serves the purpose of getting you inspired and help track the details you're after.

Book your wedding photographer : 

we suggest you do this as early as possible. Photographers work on a "fist come first served" basis, so make sure you secure your dream photographer early! After the wedding, when the excitement is over and the cake has been eaten, the photos are the only thing you have left to tell your fairytale.

Build your guest list:

This can be a nerve-wrecking experience, but remember: It's your wedding and You get to decide, who is coming and who is not. Unless Daddy is paying, then you might have to invite some of his friends too.

Pick your wedding service providers:

Make sure you do a bit of research, the more you look at, the better idea you have of the industry standards. Build a shortlist of a few you really like and then go and meet them in person. This way you can ensure you get people that suit your style and budget and most importantly, people you get along with.

Make-up artist:

 We LOVE good make-up! That flawless skin that always looks perfect in photographs! Good make-up will bring out your eyes and shape your face to look even more beautiful on the day. Please, hire a professional. Good make-up really makes a huge difference for photos and you want your make-up to stay perfect, hour after hour after hour. 

Plan your timeline:

All your service providers would really appreciate a good, detailed timeline - it doesn't mean you are trying to control everything, but gives every-one a good guide to work to. If things don't go exactly according to plan on the day, that's fine, because every-one would then be well prepared and can usually catch up fairly quickly.

Wear your shoes before the wedding day!

You don't want to be so uncomfortable that you have to take your shoes off and the last thing you need is blistered feet on your honeymoon. Have a comfortable pair of shoes for the photo session - the photographer will tell you when your gorgeous feet are visible, so you can pop your glam shoes back on.

Arrange transport on the day:

 If you hire a car to take you from the ceremony to the reception, make sure that car will be there when you want to go home. If not, arrange accordingly. 

Have fun on your wedding! 

Wedding is about you and your honey. Tell each other how happy you are; Kiss and cuddle and giggle. We LOVE those natural expressions - the real photography starts when both of you burst out laughing and forget about posing and the camera. Then we can see the real YOU. 

Once you have figured out how to plan a wedding with your fiancee, you can do pretty much anything together! 

Stay tuned for more tips coming soon.

Happy planning :-)

Kitty and Andre

Tanya and Andrew's Nooitgedacht wedding photography https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2014/2/tanya-and-andrews-wedding Tanya and Andrew's Nooitgedacht wedding photography

 

 

It was a true delight to do Tanya and Andrew's Nooitgedacht wedding photography!

Tanya and Andrew first met in Stellenbosh, where she was exploring the art of winemaking and he was playing rugby for Maties. They instantly shared a connection when they saw each other and stayed in touch after that day. Years later this connection is just as strong, making them joke and giggle on their wedding day. Tanya and Andrew have their own world, filled with laughter and funny dance moves. They have so much fun together, we are convinced there won't be any boringness in their marriage!

We asked the couple what was the most memorable part of their wedding day:

Tanya: Everything! Seeing Andrew when I walked down the aisle.  The smiles on all the faces, the overwhelming love and happiness shared by all.

Andrew: Seeing Tanya blew me away. The whole occasion was awesome. Catching up with friends that we had not seen in a while was great. So much happiness in one place.

Tanya and Andrew's wedding was the kind of celebration you don't want to end. The spectacular Nooitgedacht provided a great scene for the touching ceremony and the celebration afterwards. The dancing was phenomenal! Tanya and Andrew's friends and family kept the dance floor pumping all night long. Everybody enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere of the party. The couple themselves took the lead on the dance floor. As they say: "Don’t stress!! The day goes by too quickly to be upset or stress about anything. It is such a happy day = BE HAPPY!"

We feel very privileged to been able to capture Tanya and Andrew's special moments. It was such a pleasure to photograph these two families coming from all over the world to witness their union. Exactly as Tanya said, it was the day of overwhelming love and happiness. It's because the two of them share this incredible connection and love that just rubs off on everybody and everything around them. We wish Tanya and Andrew many years of fun and laughter. Congratulations!

Lisa & Darren's Nooitgedacht wedding photography https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2014/2/lisa-darrens-wedding Lisa & Darren's Nooitgedacht wedding photography

 

 

They say the secret to a good marriage is falling in love again and again always with the same person. It is so true with Darren and Lisa. Even though Darren first met his princess when she was 16, they have the same excitement and sparkle in their eyes. When a soccer league player marries a Portuguese beauty, it's going to be a truly spectacular wedding!

The reception was held in Nooitgedacht Wine estate. I've never seen this venue look so glamorous before! The reception hall was transformed with crystal chandeliers and flowers to look like a queen's ballroom. The tables were sparkling with candles and crystals. Lisa looked lovely amongst all the sparkle and the flowers in her gorgeous princess-like dress, next to her handsome groom. Lisa and Daren's Nooitgedacht wedding photography took us to some secret corners of the gardens.

The dancing and the celebration carried on long into the night. Everybody was on the dance floor, dancing, laughing and enjoying themselves. We were delighted to be part of this lively wedding. It's a great pleasure to capture the love and emotions of the two families coming together to celebrate the first son and daughter's marriage. We wish Darren and Lisa many years filled with love and laughter.

Lisa and Michael's New Year's wedding photography https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2014/2/lisa-and-michael-smith Lisa and Michael's New Year's wedding photography

Lisa and Michael said "I do" on New Years Eve, with the sound of the waterfall in the background. The gorgeous, tall Lisa looked like a princess in her layered lace dress, as she walked down the aisle. We absolutely loved this outdoor ceremony, with the sounds of the water and the birds around. The photos with the waterfall in the background are magical. The reception hall was transformed into a palace by the super-tallented crew from Uber-Chic. They brought gorgeous tableware and fabulous chandeliers to enhance the interior. The decor represented elegance and chic, exactly what Lisa envisioned. This lovely celebration took us through to the New Year and it gave everybody the opportunity to play with some sparklers. We love to capture sparklers fun and the New Years is the absolute "must" for that! We wish Lisa and Michael many years together filled with love and fun. It was a true pleasure to do Lisa and Michael's New Year's wedding photography and welcome the New Year in their company!

Monique and Johan's wedding photography https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2014/1/monique-and-johans-wedding Monique and Johan's wedding photography

 

 

Monique was a student at the Capoeira class when she first laid her eyes on the handsome instructor, Johan. Soon they became inseparable. Eight years later they pledged their love to each other in front of the family and friends. Monique looked absolutely stunning in her elegant gown! The contrast between the sporty look Monique prefers every day and the elegant lady she transformed into, left us all speechless! The ceremony and the reception was held at the Provence in Wellington. It was obvious that both the Bride and the Groom both love the ocean, as the room was tastefully decorated with everything that comes from the sea. There was gorgeous vases with shells and starfish, sea sand and coral. Monique and Johan did many trips to the seaside collecting decorations for their wedding day. What a lovely DIY project! The room was filled with blue light, making it feel like an underwater world.

After the joyful ceremony the couple danced the night away. The photo booth was also ocean-themed! We had a massive inflatable shark and all sorts of flotation devices. The couple got snorkelling masks and goggles for the guest's entertainment. We had endless fun taking photos with all those props! It was a fantastic day of joy and celebration, when these two families came together to participate in this happy event. We wish Monique and Johan a lifetime filled with love and laughter. They are already a fantastic couple, they can only grow to be more amazing together!

Venue: Provence

Roxane and Jason's Suikerbossie wedding photography https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2014/1/roxane-and-jasons-wedding Roxane and Jason's Suikerbossie wedding photography

 

 

This was definitely a wedding to remember! When a stunning girl like Roxane gets married to a handsome man like Jason, and they do it at Suikerbossie, the photos are going to be amazing! We were really looking forward to Roxanne and Jason's Suikerbossie wedding photography. Roxanne and Jason are the kind of couple everybody wants to be around. No wonder there was a crowd of friends and family wanting to be part of their special day! 

Roxanne was getting ready at the Rockwell Hotel, in the spacious penthouse. This double story luxurious apartment is a dream for a photographer! Massive windows draped in white curtains and contemporary, minimalistic decor photograph so well! It was a pleasure to document this group of friends enjoying the preparation together. 

The weather that day was absolutely perfect. Roxanne and Jason said "I do" as the sun was setting over the mountains at Suikerbossie. This lovely ceremony brought the elements of Jewish and western tradition together. The couple exchanged rings, listened to the Seven Blessings and crushed the glasses at the end (well done, Jason!). The ceremony was followed by a lively reception. The guests danced the night away to the music of "The Professors". 

We feel very privileged to have been able to capture Roxanne and Jason's special day. Their wedding was an absolute pleasure to photograph and we wish them many years of love and happiness.

Adelle and Luke's Grabouw wedding https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2014/1/adelle-and-lukes-wedding Adelle and Luke's Grabouw wedding

Grabouw weddingChappell 311

Luke and Adelle found each other in England. This handsome Englishman looked into Adelle's deep blue eyes and he followed her to the other side of the globe. They sealed their love during Grabouw wedding, in the gorgeous scenery of Houw Hoek Inn. Adelle looked like a princess with her blond curls, adored and kissed by her prince. The Bridesmaids wore stunning silver-grey dresses, flowing beautifully in the wind. It was a true fairytale wedding, where the two soul mates come together to never be separated. It was obvious Adelle and Luke were made for each other, even though they happen to grow up on two different continents. It was a true joy and pleasure to photograph this incredible couple. We wish them all the joy and happiness there is in this world. Thank you, Adelle and Luke, for finding us and trusting us with your wedding photography! Kitty and Andre

Vilana and Kyle's wedding photography https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2014/1/vilana-and-kyles-wedding Vilana and Kyle's wedding photography

 

 

 

Vilana and Kyle got married on a hot summer’s day, the 17th of December 2013. The bride wore a lovely flowing dress and sandals. The flowers in her hair made her look very fresh, like a tropical island beauty. The colors they chose were yellow and blue and they made a very vibrant combination. The groom's attire also had elements of blue - the color of the ocean they both love so much. Vilana and Kyle are moving to Johanesburh soon after the wedding, therefore they wanted to do their wedding photography at Blouberg beach, with the iconic Table Mountain in the background.

We did Vilana and Kyle's photo session at Dolphin Beach. It was a very special place for them, as Kyle proposed to Vilana in this exact spot. We managed to create some stunning images on the beach, despite, or maybe thanks to the howling wind! Nothing could stop Vilana from doing her wedding photography on the beach in Cape Town!

We wish Vilana and Kyle all the best for the journey ahead. We hope they come visit their favorite Cape Town often!

Shareef and Sadiqah's muslim wedding photography https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2014/1/shareef-and-sadiqahs-wedding Shareef and Sadiqah's muslim wedding photography

 

I must be the luckiest photographer in town to be able to capture this wedding! Sadiqah and Shareef celebrated their union on the 15 of December in the Muslim tradition. This was my first muslim wedding photography and I absolutely loved it! The Muslim Bride gets to wear two different dresses on the day! So she gets the make-up and hair done twice, she's got two sets of jewelery and two pairs of shoes! I had so much fun capturing all the details of the traditional sari, with the bling and the layers of fabric being wrapped around Sadiqah! It takes two professional dress fitters to assemble the outfit! But the outcome is absolutely amazing! Sadiqah looked like a dream when she met Shareef after he came back from the mosque. They were so happy together! 

The second outfit was a traditional western wedding gown. With a different make-up and hair style Sadiqah transformed into a princess. The dress she wore was very special. Shareef looked super handsome in his fitted suit! We did our photo session in the 15 on Orange hotel. The spacious, modern interiors were the perfect background for this elegant couple! We also went to do some portraits in the forest. The bridal couple's family brought their little ones, dressed in gorgeous formal outfits. They were blowing bubbles at the bride and groom, having fun and posing for photographs! We had loads of fun and the photos look amazing! 

This was such a great experience to be able to photograph Shareef and Sadiqah's wedding and we were truly privileged to be part of their special day. Thank you, Sadiqah and Shareef, for sharing your day with us. We wish you a long and happy life filled with love and prosperity.

Chemone & Bruce's wedding and Rhodes Memorial wedding photos https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2014/1/chemone-bruces-wedding Chemone & Bruce's wedding and Rhodes Memorial wedding photos

 

 

Chemone and Bruce's wedding will be remembered as the Fun Wedding! They celebrated their wedding with a big party! The ceremony took place in the Harfield church. It's one of those churches with an amazing sound system, coloured light and a live band. We love it! The ceremony was lovely and touching, followed by confetti and congratulations. 

 

For their photo session Chemone and Bruce chose Rhodes Memorial wedding photos. We had the pleasure to photograph this sweet couple in the historic location of the monument. The photos look spectacular! The Rhodes Memorial provides the perfect background for Chemone's spectacular dress. The evening sun perfectly completed the scene.

 

The reception was a great party filled with touching speeches and some serious dancing! The guests couldn't get enough of the photo booth. We really enjoy capturing images of this fun-loving crowd! It was a great pleasure to be part of this celebration. Thank you, Chemone and Bruce, for sharing this moment with us. We are very excited for our next assignment with you!

Anthea and Adriaan's Cape Town beach wedding https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2013/12/anthea-and-adriaans-fairytale-wedding Anthea and Adriaan's Cape Town beach wedding was a fairytale come true!

When we've met this beautiful couple in June this year, it was obvious their wedding is going to be quite something! Not only are they a gorgeous couple, but they are also insanely in love! It was amazing to watch the two of them write letters to each other in anticipation of the big day! And finally on the 7th of December Anthea married the man of her dreams - Adriaan. I've never seen a bride that excited!

Anthea and Adriaan drove away in the white Buick. I didn't even know you could get a car like that! This thing is huge! The Buick set an even more classic tone to the rest of the photographs. The spacious interiors resembled the luxury of the twenties! We absolutely loved playing with this old daddy. The sound of its V8 engine was totally amazing!

The reception took place at the Durbanville Hills. Watching the sunset from the top of the hill was amazing! There was touching speeches, toasts and some tears and lots of dancing!

This was a truly unforgettable celebration. Anthea and Adriaan spent many months creating this event and at the end everything came together for this very special couple. Thank you Mr and Mrs Cronje for choosing us to be your photographers. We enjoyed every minute of your special day.

Reception Venue: Durbanville Hills

The ceremony was conducted at Melkbosstrand, with Table Mountain on the horizon. The colour for the wedding was pink and bling - the bridesmaids looked very fresh and vibrant when they came down in their flowing dresses. Anthea looked absolutely stunning - from head to toe everything was perfect, with her fashionable dress, her glamorous make-up and a long veil. The sky was covered in clouds, creating a very dramatic background for this wedding.

The camera LOVES Anthea and Adriaan. Both of them are performers and they are used to being on stage. That gave them the confidence to pose, the rest is just love that surrounds them. The way they look at each other, the passion in the kiss, everything just says: "I love you!" I think that's why the portraits we took on the beach are so special.

Theresa and Hayden got married on the 16 of November 2013. The church ceremony was followed by a very lively and fun reception at the Groenvlei Guest Farm.  The Bride got ready at the guesthouse located at the venue. The bridal suite looked great with antique mirrors and furniture. Portrait session was done in the stunning interiors of the Banksia Hotel. Theresa and Hayden looked like a movie stars amongst white pillars and crystal chandeliers of the hotel. The rain didn't spoil the party, friends and family were having a great time during the reception. We wish the newlyweds all the joy and happiness and good luck for the journey together!

styled engagement photosJana & Benji_e_03

 

Finally I get to blog this treat!

Jana and Benji are getting married on Halloween next year. Their styled engagement photos resembled the movie "Sweeney Todd". The costumes and the location was selected to look like the scenes from the movie. We found an old factory in Somerset West for their styled engagement photos that looks like an old building in 19th century London. Jana wanted the whole shoot to be dark, mysterious and stripped out of colour.

That's exactly the way they like it!

I hope we managed to create this mood.

They both did an outstanding job posing! Jana looks very mysterious in her black cape, Benji is a natural, every angle of his face looks great in the camera. We had lots of fun creating the outfits for this session (thank you Costume Shop in Somerset Mall!). We had even more fun capturing the images afterwards! The moon was in full that night and the light was just perfect. Enjoy!

Toyah and Juan's Slaley wedding photography https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2013/11/toyah-and-juans-wedding Toyah and Juan's Slaley wedding photography

 

 

 

 

Toyah and Juan said "I do" amongst the vineyards of Slaley Wine Estate. Their Slaley wedding photography captures the emotions of the ceremony and the beauty of the landscape. The fresh greenery and the afternoon light accompanied this touching ceremony. Surrounded by close family and friends they pledged their love to each other. The ceremony decor was simple, yet striking. At Slaley's you don't just get married under an arch, they have an entire dome decorated with flowers. And the owner of the estate drives you to the aisle in his Maserati! What an amazing venue, we instantly fell in love with it! 

The reception was held at the restaurant at Slaley's. The tastefully decorated interior and great family atmosphere makes this place a rarity! Slaley's is the perfect combination of the past (with all the wines bubbling in the background) and the present. This modern interior with great sound and lighting is a dream for a wedding! 

Toyah and Juan chose a very fresh set of colours for their wedding: yellow, orange and pink. These colours were featured in the dresses, flowers and stationery. Combined they created an incredibly fresh and vibrant display. It was like the essence of spring locked in the centerpieces. The cake was a masterpiece on its own with the cascades of flowers and butterflies, making it more of a display than a desert!

Toyah and Juan danced the night away, accompanied with their friends. We were very privileged to be part of this celebration. We wish Toyah and Juan all the joy and happiness. Congratulations!

Lesley and Shavon celebrated their wedding in the spectacular scenery of the Stellenrust Wine Estate. It was our first wedding at this great venue and hopefully one of many! Stellenrust wedding photos come out like a dream and is's a fantastic place to celebrate such occasion, with the most amazing views and a great selection of wines. After the whole week of rain the skies cleared up for them and the weather was perfect on the day! The leaves were just starting to form on the wines, making the place look fresh and green. Lesley chose a gorgeous dress, which made her look like a catalogue model. We had lots of time to do the portraits, a rare luxury for the photographer. We could go to all the great photo locations and create their dream Stellenrust wedding photos.

Nicole and Chad's Neethlingshof wedding photography https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2013/11/nicole-and-chads-wedding Nicole and Chad's Neethlingshof wedding photography

 

Neethlingshof wedding photographyHerringer 390

 

We were very privileged to capture Nicole and Chad's Neethlingshof wedding photography. Nicole and Chad are the perfect match, both beautiful and elegant. The wedding ceremony was conducted by Nicole's father, who is a reverend in the Strandfontein Baptist Church. It was very touching to watch this dad give his daughter away. The couple was followed by family members and friends wanting to congratulate and wish them well.

The main colour of Nicole and Chad's wedding was red - the color of love. Fiery details were beautifully balanced by the bright, spacious interiors of the Neethlingshof Wine Estate. The historical building made a perfect background for this elegant couple! Nicole's dress took my breath away. Cascades of fabric arranged in giant roses all over the dress were spectacular! It takes a very special girl to wear this dress as gracefully as Nicole did. For the reception the Bride changed into another stunning dress, a white gown incrusted with tiny beads. This fabulous dress was a gift brought by her loving friend all the way from Dubai. Chad looked super handsome in his fitted grey suit!

The Master of Ceremony was a family member, who serves in the Navy as an Admiral. Not every Bride has an officer salute her as she walks into the room! It was a pleasure to watch this lovely couple celebrate their union with so many close friends and family members. We would like to wish Nicole and Chad all the best on their new path of life.

Carli and Lian's Blue Bay Lodge wedding photography https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2013/11/carli-and-lians-saldanha-wedding Carli and Lian's Blue Bay Lodge wedding photography 

It wasn't just a wedding, it was the whole adventure! Doing Blue Bay Lodge wedding photography for Carli and Lian was an opportunity to discover Saldanha. This place brings nature and comfort together in a simple and elegant way. The touching ceremony was conducted right on the beach (for all of you beach-loving brides!). The reception hall, with the massive windows on one side, allows the guests to watch the sun go down over the Saldanha bay, in the comfort of the building. Saldanha does get a bit windy in the spring though! 

Carli makes a stunning bride and Lian is a perfect match for her! Both tall and beautiful, they stood strong against the wind that was blowing during the ceremony. You can tell these two were best friends long before they decided to get married. What a stunning couple!

Carli and Lian chose turquoise and yellow for their wedding colors. These two tones are the exact opposite of each other, but this calculated clash worked great for the decor. Our favorite was mason jars lined on the inside with lemon slices, and lit with candles. There was lots of meaningful details everywhere, such as yellow floating cables with their birth dates and little beads with letters that created words. 

The Bride managed to get her beloved Chiwawa to the ceremony. She says both the dog and the Groom take up similar amounts of space in her heart! It was the cutest Chiwawa I've seen. It sat in his traveling bag during the ceremony, but when Carli said "I do", the dog jumped out trying to get to her! Chiwawa got to congratulate his lady with lots of licks and kisses!

We were very privileged to be part of this celebration. Lian and Carli are a fantastic couple and we wish them all the happiness there is in the world. We know as long as they stay close and hold hands, they will be fine. These two have a very special bond. Congratulations, Lian and Carli!

Bridget and Justin's Suikerbossie wedding photography

 
 
 
We were so excited to do Bridget and Justin's Suikerbossie wedding photography! This wedding was an absolute dream for a wedding photographers and videographers! Bridget and Justin are such a beautiful couple. She is blond and delicate and he is a tall, mysterious and good looking. Together they look like a couple straight from a movie set, but they don't spend their days in front of the camera. Bridget is a dedicated and passionate doctor, working hard to help people in need. Her patients become her friends, we've met a few of them at the wedding! Justin's great love for nature brought him to the National Parks, where he is looking after the environment. When these two love-birds come together, you can feel the love and emotions in the air!
 
 
We captured Bridget and Justin's Suikerbossie wedding photography with the perfect sunset over the mountain. The background for the ceremony is an absolutely breathtaking view of Hout Bay. This great venue is located in the most beautiful part of the coast, between Llandudno and Wynberg - what else to wish for! And if you can have your loving family and friends around you, it's going to be a memory for a lifetime!
 
We are the luckiest photographers in town to have been able to capture Bridget and Justin's Suikerbossie wedding photography. Even though they didn't have a lot of time to put this ceremony together, everything was thought trough. The flowers looked spectacular (well done, Bridget's Mum!), and all the elements of the decor fitted the surrounding of Suikerboosie and the couple themselves. There was little hearts woven from wooden sticks and wild flowers (gorgeous!) and hand-made jam in custom jars. Most of the things were hand-made specially for this occasion! 
 
Bridget and Justin have the funniest bunch of friends! I've never seen guests line up behind me already dressed in props, to have their turn at the Photo Booth! And I'm not talking one or two of them, but all of them! I laughed so much that day. 
 
We are absolutely thrilled to present this selection of images. There are some timeless gems. This is what happens when you bring a beautiful, loving couple into one of the most spectacular locations in this world.

Cindie and Cliffiy's Laatson wedding photos and video https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2013/10/cindie-and-cliffie Cindie and Cliffiy's Laatson wedding photos and video

 

This lovely wedding begun with an amazing drive. We got to travel to Porterville, watching the magnificent mountains covered in snow. We were followed by showers and rainbows popping up every five minutes! Rainbows are my lucky signs, if they show up, it's going to be a good day!

The wedding started with morning preparations. It was lovely to watch friends assisting the bride every step of her way! She looked so beautiful when she walked down the aisle. The sky cleared out and birds started singing, like they were celebrating these two lovely people getting married. We truly enjoyed taking Cindie and Cliffy's Laatson wedding photos and video.

Laatson is an amazing venue that not many people know about. The owners pay very close attention to detail. Together with the bride they created an absolute masterpiece of decor! The decor was perfectly matched with this lovely, rustic venue. The centerpieces were made of sliced pine trees. There was loads of wild flowers in tiny, vintage bottles. Everywhere you looked there were proteas. Some of them were hanging from the trees on ribbons, some were on the tables. Even the cake was hand-painted with proteas! Well done Cindie, you really put your creativity to work! Our favorite were hundreds of hand-made ceramic hearts hanging off everything. And the little Pac Man - shaped cake pops!

Traveling to Porterville was a great adventure and fun. A lot of guests stayed overnight before and after the wedding. This created loads of bonding opportunities for both families. And what's better for bonding than a braai! We got invited to the pre-wedding braai, with friends and family. That was so nice! Thank you, Cindie and Cliffie for including us in your family celebration.

Summer wedding photography in Cape Town https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2013/9/summerweddings Summer wedding photography in Cape Town

With the summer wedding season approaching quickly, we thought we would share a few tips on how to ensure the success of summer wedding photography in Cape Town.

As professional wedding photographers, we want to give you the best images possible. Therefore, we would advise NOT to stand in a direct sunlight during your wedding ceremony. You are not only going to squint the whole time (which is not going to look very nice in your photos), but you might also end up with a nasty shadow on your face - which we can do very little about. So please, get a little gazebo to cast some shadow on you and your Hubby to Be. It's going to make the whole experience a lot more pleasant and gives us the opportunity to capture some gorgeous portraits during the ceremony. By simply hiring a white bedouin tent or a little gazebo, you are not only making yourself comfortable during the ceremony, but also increasing the chances of creating an amazing summer wedding photography in Cape Town.

Another thing you might want to look at is walking on the grass. If you are wearing heels, you know exactly what is going to happen the moment you step on the grass. Your heels are going to go straight in! There a number of things you can do to avoid discomfort. Firstly - have a carpet to walk on. Walking down the grass isle covered with petals might seem romantic, but walking on the carpet is a lot more comfortable. Also think of the bridesmaids. They will have to stand on the grass for the duration of the ceremony. It's hard to look graceful if your heels are sinking into the grass the whole time. Why not give them, and yourself, something hard to stand on? I've seen this image on Pinterest, where bridesmaids are standing on the little planks, wearing gorgeous red shoes. You could just place a stone tile for each of them to stand on.

Summer weddings are great, but they can get HOT! You might want to consider providing your guests with umbrellas, if you don't have a gazebo over their seats. And refreshments straight after the ceremony is a great idea!

Ask your bridesmaids to prepare a little basket for you and your hubby with a snack and a drink. We can take it with to the photo session, so the two of you can have a break! You are going to love a little sip and a snack after the ceremony. If you want to bring your bridal party with, you are welcome. Then you need to expand that picnic basket to cater for more people. We've seen an elaborate 12-piece set being carried around on one of our previous weddings (well done, Anneke and Wade's bridesmaids!), it was an awesome idea and it set a relaxed vibe for the rest of the evening!

We are super excited for the approaching summer! There are vows to be made, bouquets to be tossed and champagne to be poured! Bring on the celebration! Have fun during the preparations and keep us updated!

Adele and Luke's Lagoon Beach Hotel wedding photography https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2013/9/adele-and-lukes-wedding Adele and Luke's Lagoon Beach Hotel wedding photography

 

"Lagoon Beach Hotel wedding photography"Wiggins 006

 

Adele and Luke tied the knot on the 14th of September. We captured Adele and Luke's Lagoon Beach Hotel wedding photography in Cape Town, with the perfect view of the Table Mountain in the background.  What a great place to celebrate your wedding day! It's called Table View for a reason. You can see the perfect silhouette of Table Mountain in the background and watch the city lights come on in the evening. Adele and Luke chose navy blue as the leading colour for their wedding and I can't think of a better choice. With the spectacular ocean view in the background and the lighthouse on the horizon, the navy blue worked out perfectly. We also loved the wire trees used as centre pieces at the tables. The silver of the wire and blue of the crystals made a perfect accent in this elegant venue.

The Photo Booth was great too! Instead of using the traditional props, they found all those lovely words cut into shapes. Painted white, they put meaning into photographs of their friends and family. We also loved the musician Dave Ferguson, with his one-man band he created an amazing atmosphere for after-party cocktails.

It was a lovely ceremony and a great party. We were delighted to be able to capture Adele and Luke's special moments. We wish them a lifetime of happiness and prosperity. All the best, Mr and Mrs Wiggins!

We were looking for that perfect forest for Bridget and Justin's forest engagement photo shoot for a long time! And then one day we just saw it - tall trees, massive rocks in a green grass. We suggested this location for Bridget and Justin's photo session and it worked perfectly! Weather last week didn't look promising at all, but the skies cleared out for this lovely couple and a golden sun came out. We had so much fun during this session. Bridget and Justin are the sweetest people, super in love and truly enjoying each other's company. Their wedding is in 10 days at the beautiful Suikerbossie, we are thrilled to photograph the ceremony! Stay tuned to see Bridget and Justin's wedding photos.

Choosing between Western Cape wedding venues https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2013/9/western-cape-wedding-venues Choosing between Western Cape wedding venues

 

 

"Western Cape wedding venues"Weltervreden 12

Finding a really good Western Cape wedding venues that are not going to break the bank could be a daunting task. With so many venues to choose from and so many important things to consider, this simple task can easily become very stressful - So, we have decided to help out by compiling a little checklist to get you started.

But before we start the checklist - close your eyes and recall that dream you had as a little girl about your perfect princess wedding.

-You are walking down the isle in a stunning gown, your handsome prince-charming is waiting for you at the end. Now recall what the isle looks like? Are you in a chapel, or on the beach, or surrounded by vineyards? Are you walking on a carpet or tiles or maybe even on a sand? Is there an arch at the end? How many guests do you see? Think about all the detail you see in your dream, as these will all help you transform your dream into reality.

Don't get too influenced while choosing amongst thousands of Western Cape wedding venues. Deciding on the style of your wedding should be entirely your decision! More and more couples go for the less obvious. So don't hold back, if you've always wanted to walk bare feet on the sand - just do it – it’s your day! There are venues out there that provide both: romantic nature setting and the comfort of a luxury hotel.

Your wedding should be a reflection of who you are, the style you prefer and what you want to surround yourself with. As photographers we try to design your wedding portrait session around you, so the more you tell us about yourself, the better we can be prepared! This could be anything from colours, to style, setting, mood, etc. We will scout the location to find that perfect spot for your wedding portraits. Some brides like the beach, some like the forest and others see themselves on a luxury sofa or in a pink Cadillac. We love to follow your dreams, because every Bride is different and every Bride is special for us. It also makes our job a lot more fun - so please tell us what you love. We will do our best to find it for you!

World famous Australian photographer, Sue Bryce always says: After the wedding, when you open your eyes in the morning, the only two things you have left is your husband and your photos. They better be good!

Now, grab this little venues-made-easy guide and go make a short list of your Western Cape wedding venues!

Once you have the favourites selected, you can visit them together and decide which one suits both of you.

You can pin this checklist!

Zandri and Gertjtie's Buffelsfontein wedding https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2013/8/scheepers-wedding Zandri and Gertjie's Buffelsfontein wedding was definitely something to remember! Not only we had an incredibly beautiful bride, there was cheetas, lions, rhinos, buffalos and giraffes. Buffelsfontein wedding was an excelent idea for something different and very safari-like. This game reserve wedding brought together the elements of nature and the wildlife together with glamour and elegance. 

 

Like the boys said, we've had one "Lekker Bride"! Zandri makes a killer bride with her gorgeous face and a tall posture. She was nothing but fresh, classy, fabulous and  sexy. The dress complemented her incredible figure perfectly. Well done, Zandri, you looked elegant yet sophisticated! 

 

 

The colour for the wedding was red. Another great choice, the red just fitted perfectly with the rustic venue. But don't be deceived, having your wedding at Buffelsfontein doesn't mean compromising on comfort!  We woke up in the morning snuggled up in comfy bed, looking out the window at springbok! They were just outside the window of our chalet! We were privileged to join the couple on a game drive the next morning. We did some spectacular shots with rhinos, cheetas and giraffes. It felt like the animals all came out to pose for these two lovely people. Even the owner of the game reserve said its rare to see all the animals in one morning! Thank you, Paul Junior, for taking us to your favorite, treasured spots. Your trees are truly amazing!

 

 

 

If any of you, Brides to Be, are still looking for a venue that provides not only the comfort and the facilities to host a party, but also unique and  memorable experience you should take a drive to Buffelsfontein Game Reserve. 

We truly enjoyed every minute of their Buffelsfontein wedding. We wish Zandri and Gertjie a lifetime of happiness and joy.

Wedding day gifts for the bride and groom https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2013/8/wedding-day-gifts Wedding day gifts for the bride and groom can become tricky. Imagine you are getting ready for your wedding and your wife-to-be sends you a little  gift. In this exact moment you realise you don't have a gift for her. We have seen it happen more than once! Therefore we created this fun guide on how to approach the issue of wedding day gifts. We hope it helps!

 

As a wedding photographers, we accompany brides and grooms through their preparations on the wedding day. What we find very touching is when they send each other messages or small wedding day gifts the morning of the wedding. It's very warming and personal and instantly builds the connection between the bride and the groom. It reminds everybody that a wedding is all about two people falling in love and staying in love.  Wedding day gifts don't ned to be expensive or elaborate, however, if you can get her a Tiffany necklace, go for it! Sometimes even a hand-written note is enough to make him smile. A print of your lips on a piece of paper, with a promise of many many more is also quite an exciting idea. Here are a few more ideas for a wedding day gifts:

Something for the nerves.

As a wedding day gift, you can send the groom a miniature bottle of his favorite brandy. It won't sent him over the limit, but it will definitely help to relax. You can add a funny, personal message on the bottle or send it in a box with a glass and some mix (you know best what he likes!). His best-man probably prepared a little something for the morning, but this one will be special because it's from you. Every man would appreciate this kind of wedding day gift!

He will have a good laugh about this one! Give him a hand-stamped keyring as a wedding day gift. Make it a calendar page and he will never forget your anniversary!

The ultimate wedding day gift, however, is a boudoir photo session made into a pocket book. This trend is becoming hugely popular in South Africa. What better way to fire up his excitement than giving him a book showcasing some of your best attributes! You can use most of your wedding accessories in this photo shoot (minus the dress). And you get to capture your gorgeous body after months of gym, dieting and tanning. It's really worth doing a boudoir shoot, not only for your guy, but also for yourself. It builds confidence and makes you feel sexy! So find a good photographer, who has done boudoir before and surprise your honey on this unique wedding day gift!

How to choose wedding colours https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2013/8/wedding-colours Here is a few useful tips on how to choose wedding colours. Choosing your wedding colour is not as simple as it appears to be! There is a lot of things you need to take under consideration when choosing your wedding colours. We created this simple, step-by-step guide to make choosing your wedding colours easy and fun!

How to choose wedding colours

 

1. What is your favourite colour?

Not sure? Open your wardrobe and see what is the dominating colour. Don’t worry if it’s black or hot pink - we can work with it. This is real you, this is the colour you like to be surrounded with and that’s probably a good start in choosing your wedding colours.

 

2. Selecting the right hue and complementing colours.

Now go to the paint shop and look at paint swatches. The idea is to choose how strong you want your favourite  wedding colour to be. Paint swatches are a great help as they provide a variety of shades. Remember to choose an accent / complementing colour. An accent colour will appear next to your main colour, to emphasize it and break out the monotony. So, you need to choose two wedding colours: The main one and the complementing on.

2

 

3. Consider your venue.

Some venues have a distinct style and colour scheme, especially the older, more rustic ones. These will require a more delicate pallet and cannot handle, for instance, hot pink. If you’ve already decided on your wedding colours (great!), you might consider using a lighter, less saturated shade. Modern venues can usually handle stronger, more saturated wedding colours.

 

3

 

4. Find your favourite bloom.

Choose some flowers that will represent your wedding colours.  Those will appear throughout the church/reception, as well as the bridesmaids’ bouquets and will tie everything together. It doesn’t have to be a rose. If you love sunflowers or tulips there is no reason why they can’t be your leading bloom. Remember, flowers are seasonal!

4

 

5. Consider the seasons.

Certain wedding colours combinations are associated with specific times of the year, for example red and green will be appropriate on Christmas, but less suitable for spring or summer weddings. Pastels are best as a summer wedding colours, otherwise they might appear too cold. Don’t get stuck on obvious, for example brown and orange as a typical autumn wedding colours - there is also gold, maroon and purple! 

 

6. Dressing the Bridesmaids.

If you want your bridesmaids to appear head-to-toe in your favourite wedding colour, make sure they are happy to wear it. You might need to compromise on the shade to make it flattering for the girls. Your wedding colours should be both elegant and appropriate.

6

 

7. Get the boys involved!

Go tie shopping with your husband-to-be. The ties and the waistcoats can reflect your wedding colour scheme. Please make sure the boys are happy to wear it! Again, hot pink might be controversial, however, we have seen some groom and the groomsmen pull it of!

 

8. Place colour with care.

It’s important not to overdo the main wedding colour. Instead of having everything exactly matched, it’s better to incorporate a few shades of your main wedding colour. Rely on small touches such as ribbons, place cards, candles, etc. Avoid large displays of colour, they can be overwhelming and flat-looking.

8

 

9. Easy on the cake!

Brightly coloured food is not very appealing. Instead of making your cake navy blue, aim for more culinary-friendly colours. You can give it some accents in your favourite wedding colour. Cupcakes can be a really good idea as these can be done in all colours and is quite trendy at the moment.

8c

 

10. Have your photographer take lots of photos of your fabulous arrangements, so you can cherish them for a lifetime!

Anneke and Wade's Backsberg wedding https://www.vizionphoto.com/blog/2013/7/annekeandwade Anneke and Wade's Backsberg wedding joined these two fabulous people in matrimony. The weather turned out perfect for this lovely winter wedding. Backsberg provided unique and romantic setting for our wedding photos and video. This was our first Backsberg wedding and hopefully one of many. Congratulations to the newlyweds!

 

 

Winter weddings rock!

We've recently photographed the beautiful wedding of Anneke and Wade at Backsberg. This wine estate is a dream for a wedding photographer! Our favourite was the ceremony hall - an old cellar with rows of giant wine barrels on both sides. It wasn't exactly the most spacious wedding ceremony hall we ever photographed, but but it was by far one of the most unique ones!! The whole estate is full of history and tradition. What a great background for this lovely winter wedding!

We truly enjoyed capturing Anneke and Wade's special day. Every corner was full of gorgeous little details and hand-made decorations. You could tell the Bride was into music! There were music notes everywhere, from the serviettes, the confetti, the cake, and even the ribbons on the car! Nothing was left ordinary. Even the cupcakes had tiny "I Do" flags sticking out of each one of them! A true visual feast for a photographer.

The entire Bridal Party joined us for the photo session. They pulled out a 12-piece deluxe picnic basket, blankets and sun umbrellas and started a little party - what a fantastic idea! Time to relax, have glass of bubbly and carry on with the shoot. We would definitely recommend this to future brides: get your girlfriends to prepare a little basket for you, so you can have a cocktail and a snack before the photo session. You will feel a million times better. Don't forget the Groom (and the groomsmen) will also be desperate for a shot. Check out the super-funny and relaxed photos we got as the Bridal Party traveled with us to different shooting locations.

We will always remember this gorgeous wedding for the attention to detail. Anneke's mom made the most beautiful bridesmaid dresses - each of them was tied on the girl in a unique way. The selection of wedding colours was bold and stylish - purple for the Bride and red for the Groom. They made it work together perfectly - just like everything else on their wedding day.

We wish Anneke and Wade a lifetime of happiness.
