Adél & Lombard | 20 March 2010 (My 50th wedding!) | Grootvlei, Lambertsbaai

Toe ek nou die dag sommer vir interesssantheid tel hoeveel troues ek al afgeneem het, ontdek ek dat Adél en Lombard se troue my 50ste een was! En wat ‘n hoogtepunt was dit nie! Ek en Adel het vroeg Saterdag oggend, 20 Maart, die lang weskus pad aangedurf na Lambertsbaai, ‘n plekkie waar ek nog nooit was nie. My ondervinding is dat die gasvryheid op hierdie klein dorpies uit die boonste rakke is. Die eienaars van Grootvlei het ons so vriendelik ontvang en ons het ook die aand tuis gegaan by die gasvrye Raston in die dorp self. Groot Vlei is die tipe venue waaroor ek bitter opgewonde raak – dit is langs die see, dit is onpretensieus, aards en ‘rustic’.

Adél booked me long ago and since then I was looking forward to their wedding, because I knew that careful planning would go into this special day. Adél is a natural beauty and she looked like a goddess in her Didi Couture dress. I took all her bridal portraits at the Grootvlei guesthouse because there was the most beautiful little court yard. Probably one of the highlights of the day was her dramatic arrival on horse back at the little stone chapel on the sand dune – much to the entertainment of their guests and her husband to be. The ceremony was anything but formal, instead it was light, unpretentious and filled with joyous laughter. André, a minister at Stellenbosch Gemeente, conducted the sermon and did an excellent job. Adél and Lombard’s first meeting in person was on Clifton beach in Cape Town and this reveals something about their personalities – they love the outdoors and in particular the sea. One of Lombard’s biggest passions, beside Adél of course, is kite surfiing and according to his friends, it is quite something to see him in action! Adél and Lombard are so relaxed and passionate about each other, so I had an awesome time shooting their couple photos. The light conditions could not have been better – at the beach the sky was bright blue and when we arrived at the flamingo pan, the sky was dark and dramatic with them being bathed in the last bit of gold light. It is not often that I have the privilege of taking photos with such awesome ‘emty’ backgrounds!

Dankie Adél en Lombard dat julle my 50ste troue so onvergeetlik gemaak het en ek hoop julle geniet hierdie voorskou van julle foto’s!
