Charlene & Willem’s wedding day was one of the highlights of my year! This couple and their guests were some of the nicest people I’ve ever had the opportunity to work with. They made us feel right at home in their beautiful town, Piet Retief (click here to view their engagement photoshoot that was also captured in their hometown). Charlene & Willem said their vows on the 7th of February 2015 at a chapel in town that has special sentimental value to them and their reception took place at Charlene’s old school.

The look and feel of their wedding day was rustic/vintage – they had so many creative & handmade decor ideas, I love the apple and pear shapes made from books! Also, the kneeling pillows used during the ceremony was Charlene’s grandparents wedding kneeling pillows from 59 years ago! The couple’s newlywed photo session was almost cut short after a thunderstorm started, but luckily there was no rain at the reception venue and we were able to take some beautiful shots in the forest plantations.

MR & MRS DU TOIT |kuthaba bush modimolle weddingMay 28, 2013

I really love when couples book me way in advance – it gives me so much time to get to know them. They end up feeling more like friends than clients! Madelaine & Jaun are one of these couples. I’ve been chatting to Madelaine for many months about their wedding day and she kept me up-to-date with every part of the planning process. I have such a soft spot for this beautiful (inside & out) bride and it was devastating when I heard that her father passed away just before their wedding day. I thought it was beautiful that she dedicated a very precious scrapbook to her father on the day to make sure his presence was felt. Her elegance in dealing with every and any difficult situation has given me such great respect for her.

Their vintage dusky rose wedding was held at Kuthaba Bush Lodge in Modimolle, Limpopo on the 20th of April 2013. It was a weekend affair and started with a social braai the Friday evening, their wedding on the Saturday and a breakfast buffet on the Sunday morning. We were all pretty tense when it POURED on the wedding day – now don’t get me wrong, rain can be amazing on a wedding day – but these two were hoping for a sunny day and I just felt they deserved to have this wish come true. Needless to say, it was a BIG relief when the rain stopped just before the ceremony started and we had the most beautiful golden sunlight to work with during the newly-wed session. 🙂
