Thoughts on a Wedding

even a budget wedding can add up… and up… and up. generally i know what i want for the wedding – and how to keep costs down – but sometimes i have moments like, “i want ALL the fairy lights in the world! all of them.” so it’s a fine…

Kirsty & Simon

i haven’t been thinking about the wedding much at all lately, partly because it’s 7 months away (actually… not so far away if you think about it), and partly because i’ve been busy with other things, but mostly because i get a bit overwhelmed every time i think about it. so much…

A Wedding at Babylonstoren

weddings at Babylonstoren never fail to wow me. the setting is so spectacular that you don’t need any frills when it comes to decor and the usual wedding jazz (a blessing, really). We Love Pictures recently shared the wedding of Janina & Lean that was held on the grounds of…

Rimi & Jean

i first came across wedding photographer Celine Kim after she photographed Anabela’s wedding (which is just gorgeous you have to see it), so i followed her blog to keep up to date with her work. she recently shared the traditional Indian wedding of her friends Rimi & Jean – which looked…

Cake! Cake! Glorious Cake!

oh no, don’t tell me it’s another wedding related post. to be fair, cakes are delicious and amazing – SO – i hope you don’t mind that this post kind of has to do with the wedding. because the thought of the cakes makes me very excited. if everything goes according to…

Sarah & Jamie by Love Made Visible

there are a number of talented wedding photographer couples in Cape Town whose style of photography i can really get behind – focusing on important moments rather than most of the cheesy schtick that has been perpetuated by the wedding industry. three, namely: Deon & Irene of  Modern Hearts, Travis & Maike of We Love…

Leigh & Brad by Modern Hearts

modern hearts have gone and photographed another beautiful wedding, this time Leigh & Brad’s special day held on a farm in mpumalanga. what an incredibly rad setting – nguni cattle and all (not to mention that dress).

Kelsey Genna

i’ve eagerly been following the making of of Kelsey Genna’s bridal collection on her Instagram account, so was pleased to see that her new website showcasing the entire range launched this morning. and WHAT a collection! you may remember that i blogged about Kelsey last year, so to see how her…

Bona Drag Ceremonial Collection

the Bona Drag Ceremonial Collection is something else. featuring exclusive collaborative pieces by designers like Samantha Pleet (who designed the first amazing dress below), Mara Hoffman (who has never done ready to wear gowns until now) and Bona Drag buyer & stylist Hannah Bartie’s range With Hearts in My Eyes (the…

Romy & Raphael

oh wow, i just had to share the wedding that photographer Hanni of Troistudios shared in the comments of yesterday’s plants post! Romy & Raphael got married at the Botanical Gardens in Berlin – what a perfect setting for such an intimate ceremony. they also had brunch and a reception at two…

Jackie & JFK

since i seem to be on a wedding trip today, i thought it might be cool to share some pics from the wedding of Jackie & JFK in September 1953, which was taken by Life photographer Lisa Larsen. there were 600 guests, they had 14 ushers and 10 bridesmaids and they…

A Wedding in the Loire Valley

okay, if you are a regular reader you will know my feelings re: the wedding industry and that my overall hope is that people would have honest, real weddings without the unnecessary hoopla. …but, i had to show you this. because it’s so ridiculously fantastical i almost cannot believe it’s…

Andrea & Luke

just had to share the wedding of Andrea & Luke at her family’s farm netherwood in the natal midlands photographed by my pal Shanna. that DRESS (designed by Tiaan Nagel) and the beautiful vintage botanical decor are quite special.

Wedding At Home

Kristen Marie Tourtillotte is a wedding photographer based in Seattle who got in touch with me recently to share the wedding of Michelle & Ryan, who got hitched at home amongst their friends, family and pets. i loooooooooove this. everything about it is what i love about small weddings -…
