8 July 2017 – Buffelsfontein Wedding

I met Madelein at her sisters wedding about 2 years ago.  She contacted me almost a year ago to tell me that Jacques and her have gotten engaged and they want to book me for an engagement shoot and also their wedding.  They decided on a winter wedding at Buffelsfontein, which is along the West Coast Road.  It is a family owned game reserve which is home to some of Africas great wildlife such as Lions, buffalo, white rhino and giraffe.

I must say Madelein was definitely very chilled especially a few days before the wedding.  There was prediction for rain on her wedding day but she wasn’t bothered at all because she just wanted to marry the man she loves, Mr Jacques.  Luckily for us there was no rain, only a little wind and some gorgeous skies once the sun was setting.  On the day, Madelein and her bridesmaid got dressed in the cottages at the reserve.  She looked so beautiful and I loved the cowboy boots and the bridemaids outfits:-)

We had a lot of fun taking photos of the bridal party and getting them to do silly things just because we can and it makes them laugh which is great for pics!  After the bridal party photos we got to go on a quick game drive to take some photos of Jacques & Madelein at different locations within the reserve.  Then we headed back for a delicious meal and of course yummy dessert and wedding cake which Madelein made herself.  Kath and I rolled out of there, LOL.

Thank you guys for choosing me to capture your special day, I really do feel like your family photographer and cant wait till our next shoot whenever that happens, hint hint!
