Engela & Erich25 April 2009 Lord Charles, Somerset West
On Saturday morning 25 April I woke up in Stellenbosch with rain pouring outside! Engela told me a few days before that she would love a few photo’s at the beach, so I prayed that we would have a few minutes of clear skies to work with around 17:00. When my assistant and I arrived at Lord Charles, it was still raining and I had little hope..we started photographing the beautiful décor right away and then head off in the long passage way of the hotel to where Engela was getting ready. When I saw Engela’s dress my jaw dropped to the floor – absolutely exquisite and fitted her like a glove! It was still quite dark and rainy outside by the time the ceremony had to start, and the staff of the Lord Charles had to move the the seating and red carpet to a seminar room indoors. Erich looked mesmerized when he saw his gorgeous looking bride striding elegantly down the red carpet. After the beautiful ceremony it was time for the family photo’s and couple shoot, and…our prayers were answered…the rain stopped! What a blessing it was to see dark, moody clouds a turquoise coloured ocean, the long stretch of beach, and no wind! Perfect conditions for shooting on the beach! So although we were freezing a bit, Engela and Erich got their beach shots and everyone was happy! Back at the hotel there was still a few more minutes of light available and we took a few photos in the Lord Charles’ grounds.
Ek hoop julle geniet die vooskou van hierdie stunning paartjie se troudag!
