Danie Nel WEDDINGS: S & K

20130209_0072

Wow, so this will be like the first proper blog post in 2013. And it’s already May! Well, I like to say that being busy is a good problem to have.

Some of the posts might seem dated as I put them up, as will be the case with this wedding which happened in February, and images were delivered a week later! Only, I cannot get around to posting nearly as much as I like to. So, I hope that you’re keeping abreast what’s happening through Instagram , Facebook or Twitter, or if you want to see it all in one place, About Me.

Back to the wedding. I met the bride when she was a bridesmaid for ….

F&J420

this bride. Since this wedding both of them have moved abroad and some years later I got contacted by C to see if I’m available for her wedding, one year hence. Anyways, so the year henced passed and the day arrived for the couple, who now resides in Sweden, to come and have a rainy day wedding in Cape Town. But, prayers were raised from my side, and I was heard, and just enough sunshine was let through to make for a very pleasant affair.

Also, as I walked into the bride’s home, for the pictures before the ceremony, I was surprised to see that the make-up artist for the day, Marlene, also happened to be someone who I went to school with in primary school, in Lambert’s Bay. A feat if the school you went to had about 70 kids in total.

Anyways, herewith some pics from the day. What I enjoyed about the couple was a no-problem-attitude. I always love that. And a zero stress bride, as well. That is worth a lot to get a great job done. The groom was a little more stressed,  but in an introverted way!

The wedding and reception was at the beautiful Buitenverwachting in Constantia. I’ve done shoots for wine publications there, and even a cookbook, but this would be the first wedding ceremony and reception.
