Chantel & Johny finally tied the knot on the 28th of April 2013 at the luxurious Avianto Estate in Muldersdrift. I just love these two – they look SO great together (it’s like they were made to be in front of the camera) and they are genuinely nice, kind-hearted people. Their The Notebook inspired engagement session in Cullinan, Gauteng last year was probably my favourite engagement session of all time and I knew their wedding day would be special in more ways than I could ever imagine.

Not to mention their wedding attire – Chantel’s dress & Johny’s suit was a dream to photograph and we were spoiled with the most lovely sunlight during their couple session; of course Avianto‘s gardens and scenery also never fails to impress.

Can you tell me about your inspiration – how did you do things differently?
