We love the Free State… We love the spectacular sunsets and mielie fields that go on forever and we love the early evening glow that turn grazing cattle into toy-like silhouettes, but coming to Cape Town to shoot a wedding is a treat that makes our senses go “boing”!
Liam and Caitlin recently moved to England, but returned to our much warmer and sunny SA to say their I do’s. Their day was the perfect combination of excitement and calm. It felt like we were visiting them at home as they steadily got ready during the morning. Rockhaven Farm was the most perfect and homely spot for them to start enjoying the weekend with their family and friend while building flower crowns, fynbos decorations and bouquets. With gorgeous jewelry and sweet and sentimental touches scattered all over their day and plenty of entertainment, we could document their wedding in the best way possible.
Liam + Caitlin, you guys are so evidently made for each other, your kindness and adventurous spirits are inspiring and we feel like we have made two new friends! Thank you! xxx
A few thanks from the bride:
Venue: Rockhaven Farm, Elgin http://rockhavenfarm.co.za/ They were absolutely amazing and did all the catering and food too, the day ran so smoothly and they were extremely professional and friendly staff.
Bride’s Dress: Elbeth Gillis http://elbethgillis.co.za/ This was a scary one as I was not in South Africa to do fittings until just before the wedding. Elbeth was amazing and made my dress using measurements I sent through from abroad. After only one fitting the dress was perfect.
