Nadine & Deon10 October 2009 Strandkombuis, Yzerfontein
Oh I just loooove beach weddings…the sand beneath your feet, the soft sound of lapping waves, the fresh air, blue skies and even the wind. There’s that undeniable nostalgic feeling of a December holiday when you can sit down on a wooden bench with mussels, snoek and glass of wine in front of you. I know that the coast doesn’t necessarily reserve its storms for winter, but in my opinion it is well worth the risk! Deon and Nadine’s wedding day was perfect. The wind later in the afternoon added a bit of drama to the photo’s but the ultimate reward was the sunset – blasts of orange, violet and soft purples – a sight that can never become clichéd!
Nadine looked like a sun goddess with her olive skin, chestnut hair, blue eyes and soft, dreamy dress (I know it sounds like something from a mills and boon novel!). Nadine and Cindy from the b.co. combined talents to create the décor that fitted the venue and setting perfectly. I loved the rows of turquoise glass bottles with stems of delicate white flowers or fynbos. The king protea bouquet was a stunner and a true work of art. Nadine and Deon really radiated love and excitement for just being in the moment and having been so blessed to have found each other. They are such a delightful couple and the Strandkombuis surroundings offer so many possibilities for photos so I just knew the couple shoot will be fun! Probably the highlight of the day was the West Coast style buffet lined with prawns, freshly baked breads and koeksisters (to name but a few!) and just socializing with all your closest friends and family under one tented roof with the soft roar of the waves in the background. Deon en Nadine, dankie dat julle my as julle fotograaf gekies het en dit was baie fun om ‘n aandeel te kon hê in julle prag troue!
