Carla & Joakim20 February 2010 Greyton
Oh there were so many things that I loved about Carla & Kim’s wedding. Firstly, the colour palette – the couple chose rosy pinks and soft greens & purples for the flowers and stationery, juxtaposed with more vibrant colours such as Carla’s bright pink shoes and the dark pink colour of the bridesmaids’ dresses. Secondly, I have so much appreciation for couples who think out of the box with a hands on approach when it comes to visualizing their big day – for example guests relaxed on ‘poofs’ at the reception as opposed to chairs. Thirdly, their wedding took place in Kim’s parents’ garden which is next to a stream surrounded by magestic mountains in the beautiful small town of Greyton. This wedding was not only magic because of the setting, but also because Carla & Kim are just so perfectly suited for each other – they are so kind hearted, witty and intelligent. Although it was 42 degrees celsius in Greyton on the 20th of Feb, we found a few soft light spots (some of you would know that I looooove soft light because it molds shapes so beautifully) especially the soft moss green light of the ‘tree’ shots. Carla & Kim, thank you for trusting me to capture your special day!
