Wedding

Louis & Alicia {Groenvlei Wedding}

Louis & Alicia’s wedding ceremony was held underneath a big tree overlooking wine farms, the perfect location to take your vows in front of your family and friends.

I have known Louis for many years and when I met his fiancé, Alicia, I could see that he found is perfect match and best friend. Getting to know Alicia throughout our meetings, I became even more excited to shoot their wedding, because I knew it would be a stunning day, filled with laughter and special moments…I was right. ;)

Louis & Alicia, congratulations!!! May your marriage be blessed with love, adventures & many more special moments. Thank you for having Nic and myself at your wedding.


How did you meet?
We met through mutual friends.

Engagement…
We went to Yzerfontein for the weekend, with a few of our best friends. All our friends knew that he was going to propose, and everyone tried really hard to keep it a secret but I had my suspicions. A bit later the one afternoon, he insisted that we go for a walk on the beach (he didn’t even allow me to finish my coffee first, which is when I realized that something was about to happen). He then took me to a picnic spot that he had set up on the beach, and he had all my favourite snacks, sparkling wine, a picnic blanket, and whole lot of hearts drawn in the sand. Just after we sat down, he poured some sparkling wine, took the ring out of his pocket and asked me to marry him!

























































































Tell us more about your wedding. Where did you find inspiration? Which elements were the most important to you?
We had a few non-negotiable items when we started looking at venues. We were specifically looking for venues where we could get married outside, and also venues which had accommodation on the premises (or very close by). I cannot remember how many venues we went to look at, but it was a lot! I decided on a “blue-and-blush” theme, and loved the idea of rose gold to add a bit of warmth. It helped a lot that the venue itself was already beautiful, and we did not need to do much more to add our own touch. While you’re busy with the planning, it’s difficult to see the whole picture – but I was extremely happy with how everything came together in the end.












































































































































What advice do you have for future brides?
Enjoy every moment of the planning process, as your actual wedding day will fly by in a wink. Make sure you choose your service providers well. I am so happy with each person/ service provider that was involved in our wedding, and I did not need to worry about any of them not doing what they were supposed to. Lastly, remember what the day is about, and just enjoy every moment – even if everything doesn’t go according to plan.

Most memorable moment of your wedding.
There were so many special moments, that it’s difficult to just mention one. I can still vividly recall how I felt when I walked down the isle – something between overwhelming excitement and happiness. The ceremony was beautiful, and I’ll never forget that. Our entry as a married couple, our first dance, and our speeches for each other – these are all etched into my memory. Our guests made us feel so special; the dance floor was never empty, and everybody had an amazing time. We could not have wished for more!

Yesterday I had the honour of shooting a very special wedding.

Meerendal was the perfect setting for a beautiful wedding on a Friday afternoon. The occassion was shared with close family and friends. What made this wedding extra special to me was that it was my third for the Olivier family. Natasha and Bianca’s parents, Chris and Sharon got married.

Thank you, Chris and Sharon, for having me at your daughters’ weddings and now yours. I have enjoyed being part of all these momentous occasions of your lives and to see every beautiful next step. May you have a blessed and wonderful marriage.

So close no matter how far
Couldn’t be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters” - Metallica

The bride, Fransisca, came down the aisle while this song was being strummed on an acoustic guitar. {Romantic}

In keeping with this month’s theme, love, I felt that nothing can be truer than when you have love, nothing else matters.

I am back in the office today after a wonderful holiday with my family & friends. To be honest, I might still be sitting on the beach with my feet in the sand, in my mind, but I am glued to my chair in my office. Answering emails and editing, with my desk fan blowing in my hair. (Which is also just as good.)

This week’s Pick of the week sums up all that I wish for you for 2013. May all your hopes and dreams come true & may love find you in unexpected ways. Here’s to a new year filled with new opportunities & adventures. Cheers!

Have a beautiful week. x

Chantel & Rigard - 17 March 2012

Chantel & Rigard’s wedding was flawless. A beautiful day, Lagoon Beach Hotel the setting, Table Mountain the backdrop & a gorgeous couple surrounded by family and friends. Perfect.

Chantel’s Cindy Bam wedding gown fit her perfectly, like a vintage lace glove. Their wedding was filled with emotions, I too had a few “teary moments” behind the camera. Ek was meegevoer in elke oomblik.

The wedding was infused with Greek tradition and created the foundation for an incredible party. Breaking plates is definitely a way to start a party. ;)

Chantel & Rigard, baie dankie vir ‘n onvergeetlike dag. Ek is bly dat ek ‘n getuie kon wees by een van dié mooiste dae van julle lewe. Mag God se liefde julle huwelik seën.

Baie dankie, Willem dat jy so ‘n groot aanwins was in my arsenaal as fotograaf. Ek is bly jy is terug en dat ons weer ‘n span is.

Natasha & Willem - 10 Maart 2012

Natasha & Willem se troue was so mooi gewees. Die seremonie was ekstra spesiaal met vriende wat simboliese geskenke vir hulle gegee het. Die lanterns wat Wikkie vir hulle gegee het simboliseer die lig wat hulle in mekaar se lewens moet wees op hulle huwelikspad vorentoe. Natasha & Willem is nederige mense en al hulle vriende kan daarvan getuig.

Natasha, jy was ‘n pragtige bruid. Jy het van binne na buite gestraal en dit het my werk net makliker gemaak. Jy en Willem is perfek vir mekaar en as ek vir julle ‘n simboliese geskenk kon gee sou dit ‘n leë foto album wees. ‘n Skoon boek om ‘n leeftyd se herinneringe saam te maak en in te bewaar.

Familie en vriende het almal gees gevang en gedans dat die biessies bewe. ‘n Paar keer amper my kamera neergesit om saam te gaan dans. Dit het so lekker gelyk. Natasha & Willem se vriende is ‘n hegte kring en hulle loop al ‘n lang pad saam. Alles wat hulle doen, doen hulle as ‘n span. Daar is ‘n liedjie wat my aan julle laat dink… “Tonight we are young, so I set the world on fire, we burn brighter than the sun.”

Natasha & Willem, baie dankie dat ek julle troudag kon afneem, dit was ‘n eer. Ek wens vir julle ‘n geseënde huwelik.

PS: Ek wil net graag dankie sê vir Andre Campher wat ‘n uitstekende assistent was.

Debrah & Jean-Paul - 3 December 2011

December always brings the “holiday” feeling, a time for being carefree and seeing family and friends. Nic & I, were lucky to share in Debbie & JP’s wedding day and experience all these emotions and more.

Seeing two best friends getting married, having the view of our beautiful Bloubergstrand and just having fun in the sun. Good times.

I met Debbie’s parents in 2010. Alta and Richard are serious photography lovers and we shared many stories about being in the darkroom and developing your own photos. Richard even came down the isle with Debbie on his arm and his camera around his neck. ;)

A lot of planning and special touches went into this wedding, Alta spent three months creating one of the most delicate and stunning wedding cakes I have ever seen.

Debbie made a gorgeous bride, she glowed with love and happiness and I think it came from the fact that she married her best friend, JP.

Debbie & JP, congratulations, I wish you a happy and prosperous marriage. Your love for each other are evident and I enjoyed getting to know you over the past year.

Nic, thank you for your excellent support and images.

Abigail & Craig - 8 October 2011

Dit is die maand Oktober,die mooiste, mooiste maand.” - C. Louis Leipoldt

Oktober is werklik dié mooiste maand en ook die maand waarin Abigail en Craig getrou het. Hulle spesiale dag was ‘n lekker warm dag, gevul met harte wat warm is van liefde en geluk.

Abigail was die rustigste bruid wat ek nog ontmoet het, sy het net heeltyd geglimlag. Haar aantreklike man, Craig, het soos ‘n James Bond gelyk wat perfek by die Lord Charles Hotel gepas het.

Baie geluk julle twee, ek wens vir julle God se seën en jare se geluk in julle huwelik. Baie dankie dat julle so geduldig was met my terwyl ek aandag aan my eie troue moes gee. Ek waardeer dit opreg baie.

Marselle & Jarcu - 17 September 2011

As inspirasie om dié blogpost te skryf het ek weer na Jefferson Starship se We built this City geluister, terwyl ek skryf. Hoekom? Want Marselle & Jarcu se troue was my eerste een vir die nuwe trou seisoen en alles waarvan ek kon droom as ‘n troufotograaf was deel van hulle troue. ‘n Oulike paartjie, ‘n great groep jong mense, mooi weer, groen & geel canola velde en baie tyd. Om dit alles te kroon, het ek my eerste “movie moment” by ‘n troue beleef, later in die aand het DJ Wally, We Built This City opgesit. Twee lang rye het oorkant mekaar gevorm en die volgende oomblik, ‘n awesome dans roetine deur Marselle, Jarcu en al hul vriende. Hoendervleis.

Marselle & Jarcu, baie dankie vir ‘n ongelooflike ondervinding en dat ons kon deel in julle spesiale dag.

PS: Ek wil ook net dankie sê dat ek kon fun hê met my ou film kamera. ;)

The Desert Rose Project - Meet Tendai

I am happy and excited to introduce to you, one of the most down to earth people I have met in my life. Tendai, is always friendly, even when it is raining in his outdoor “office”.

To read more about the Desert Rose Project, please follow this link.

An Interview with Tendai

Describe yourself in three words.
(Tendai took a while to answer this question. With his big smile, he answered this.)
I would say I am hard working, family motivated and self determined.

What is your philosophy on being an artist?
I have passion.

What inspires you?
My family being in need.

How long have you been a wire artist?
23 Years.

Why did you become a wire artist?
In Zimbabwe after school there was no work, so it was fashionable to become a wire artist.

What is your favourite pieces to make?
Lettering and the Big 5.

What makes you happy?
When I am busy with an order, I know then I can give to my family.

Why do you like about Cape Town?
Helpful people and the weather is also alright.

What do you think of the Desert Rose Project?
A good thing, sure ja. It is part of love as well.

Tell me more about the wire you use.
New and re-used wire, so I recycle, as well ja. Recycling is a good thing, it is good for the environment.

How do you feel about other artists copying your work?
You must be creative yourself.

Biggest challenge as an artist?
To set aside money for when you are not working.

Advice to other artists?
Don’t give up.

What is your favourite saying?
God love me.
















Filled with love :)






The biggest, honest smile.
