Hanneke & Bob23 January 2010 Houw Hoek Hotel, Grabouw
These two were just such a treat! What started out as a
holiday romance in Europe turned into a loving, permanent commitment on a beautiful summer’s day in Houw Hoek, Grabouw. Bob is American and Hanneke grew up in Ceres, South Africa. The couple now lives in the US where Hanneke is a pilates instructress (after saying good bye to the corporate scene) and Bob plays in a band and is involved in theatre schooling. Long after Hanneke booked me, I met her at her childhood friend Bonnie’s wedding where she was a bride’s maid. She was so bubbly and energetic and I was immediately excited about their up-coming wedding and meeting her husband to-be. There was no doubt in my mind that after seeing Bob that he had to be the perfect match for her! They laugh and joke all the time, they are so energetic and can turn any moment into a passionate one when their eyes meet. It is clear that they are the best of friends and could not wait to embark on this new joined adventure. I just have to mention something about Hanneke’s dress and her whole look – isn’t she gorgeous?! Her dress fitted her slim figure like a glove and her dainty shoes and beautiful hair clip just completed the picture of a (sorry for the cliché..) fairy tale bride! Their outside ceremony was so special and what really warmed my heart was to see the close, loving relationship which these two have with their parents. There was no holding back at the reception – while there was more than enough to feast on, the dance floor was not quiet (and entertaining!) for one moment. I hope you enjoy this set of images, because I really enjoyed taking them!
Yes, Hanneke had absolutely no problem balancing on those heels!
Bob surprized Hanneke with gift, she was very excited!
Bob did his vows in English and Hanneke did her’s in Afrikaans..
Hanneke did ballet for many years, just look at her posture!
II knew that pulling faces will work with these two, I lovit!
Mike was really a source of entertainment for the evening. He even did a fire show later!
