I met Aimee & Thomas for the first time the week before their beautiful wedding to do their engagement session. Their wedding was beyond amazing and I cannot wait to share the photos on the blog next month, but their engagement session was just as stunning. Aimee & Thomas are a perfect pair – the love and compassion they have for each other shows in each photo. Their wedding day was bicycle themed so they organised a vintage bicycle for their engagement session to stick with this theme. Delta Park in Johannesburg with its lovely greenery and faint views of the city’s skyline was the perfect location for their session.

Here’s a short introduction to how their love story begun:

MR & MRS LIDDLE |olive mystery bapsfontein weddingNovember 12, 2014

Inge & Stuart said their vows to each other on the 4th of October 2014 at the tranquil and beautiful gem of a venue, Olive Mystery, in Bapsfontein. I can not emphasise enough what lovely people Inge & Stuart are – I’ve been looking forward to their wedding day since I met them. Inge & I share a love for rabbits so I absolutely adore the bunny decor! So much thought went into every detail of their wedding day and it shows – their day was perfect and the start of what I believe will be a fairytale marriage 🙂

How did you meet / How did the proposal happen?

One of the best parts of my job is receiving great news from past wedding couples and I was overjoyed to receive word that Maryke & Wim, one my lovely 2013 couples (Maryke & Wim’s Misty River Johannesburg Wedding), are expecting their own little treasure, John Joseph.

We did the maternity session at their home and it was just wonderful to see these two again and the beautiful room they have prepped for their new family member! 🙂
Maryke (and Wim for that matter) were glowing and I know full-heartedly that these two are going to be FANTASTIC parents.
Here are some shots from their session:

I’m beyond excited about this couple’s wedding! They shared so many spontaneous and silly moments together during their couple session at the picturesque Helderfontein Estate in Fourways, Johannesburg – if this was any prediction of how their wedding day will be, I bet it will be very fun! Melissa and Stefan just mesh so well together.

Here’s their love story (sorry non-Afrikaans speaking folk; I’m posting this story in the couple’s own words in their mother tongue):
