Hester & Johan3 October 2009 Meerendal, Durbanville
Hester & Johan got married on the picturesques farm, Meerendal, just outside Durbanville. Hester got dressed at Clara Anna Fontein which is a small game reserve close to the venue and a perfect choice for any bride having her wedding at Meerendal. When I arrived there Hester’s two sisters were having a fun time doing the last touches of make-up and getting their little sister into her (stunning!) wedding dress. I have known Hester for a few years so I was very excited to see what her wedding day would be like. I was stunned by how absolutely gorgeous she looked, everything was just so perfect – from her hair to the cute little clutch bag that belonged to her grandmother. She radiated excitement and love that was really genuine. Johan was breathless when he saw his beautiful bride coming down the steps in the chapel at Meerendal.
These two were blessed with the most awesome weather! Hester & Johan were like two people who just discovered the other’s existence so we had much fun during the couple shoot! Hester is also the first bride I ever worked with who voluntarily offered her bouquet to a few curious sheep! However I think the moment was to big for them and they walked off. I must also mention something about the décor – it was so simple and elegant and what I really loved about it was the way in which both the flowers and decor reflected the venue and its surrounds. Antoinette from To Netts in the Paarl was the creative hand behind this.
At the reception guests socialised outside on the beautiful lawn till late and everyone had a awesome time on the dance floor!
Hes & Johan, baie dankie dat ek saam met julle hierdie ongelooflike spesiale dag kon deel. Julle is ‘n stunning couple!
