Alicia and WP chose Drakensberg Gardens as their wedding venue. A perfect country venue situated right in the heart of the southern Drakensberg. Never before have I worried so much about the weather! Summer thunderstorms appear literally within minutes suddenly changing into thick mist or glorious sunshine. It was a gamble but thankfully on the day the weather held out. I do have to congratulate the wedding party for their bravery. I was determined to shoot them on the other side of the river bank but seeing as we were in the middle of summer, the river was pumping! My very-clever-other-half constructed a somewhat rickety ladder cum walkway for everyone to cross the water. There was no way I would have been able to do it! But my bride, dressed in gumboots and her long white dress made a plan! Thank you guys, I owe you!

Marie and Joos are pretty crazy! Not only did an umbrella nearly whisk Marie away the first time I met her, she also decided to arrive in a glider at her wedding! They appropriately chose the airstrip in Underberg on the Bushman’s Nek Rd as their ceremony spot and then everyone made their way to Penwarn Country Estate for the reception picnic. They are two of the most genuine and easy going people I have ever worked with, it was a pleasure shooting their wedding. Thomis Sweet also accompanied me as my assistant on this wedding and it looks like we have some exciting times ahead of us
