As someone who lives in the quiet Free State, driving through the winelands and over the Cape mountains are a treat all in its own. Shooting a wedding in the gorgeous Paarl, with its historical buildings, small streets and unique character, is an exciting bonus! Gideon and Lise got married in the most beautiful setting and we got to spend a day of peaceful bliss with these two amazing people who are so in tune with one another and who bring a peace and calm to each other. They are like two strong oaks in a hurricane, unmoved and strong. And even when we feel weak, we can be strong for each other and lift each other up.
Lise is a master planner and she put together something incredible that we are so happy to have been a part of! Here are some of our favourites images of their Cape Town wedding celebration!
