Philip-John & Lizanne17 April 2010 Buitenverwachting, Constantia
I had so much fun shooting Lizanne & P-J’s wedding at Buitenverwachting in the oh-so-beautiful Constantia. They decided to have a morning-afternoon wedding – the ceremony was held in a cute stone chapel in Tokai followed by a sumputous
picnic at Buitenverwachting. Their wedding was an intimate affair with just their closest friends and family and the whole day just had such a relaxed atmosphere. Lizanne (who adores photography and is an up and coming photographer herself) & P-J’s love story began 8 years ago when they met as students in Pretoria. For the past 6 years they have been residing in the UK. I was besotted with Lizanne’s champagne-coloured soft silky dress which she was lucky to find in a London boutique, she looked so dreamy in this dress with her fresh water pearl necklace (which P-J gave her the morning of their wedding!) and soft curls. I was hoping for an overcast day (with no rain of course!) because the couple shoot was done around noon and we were lucky that the skies were indeed a huge soft box for photos! I love funky props (of course not the corny type like frames and the traditional honeymoon suitcase) because it adds an element of fun and something that often results in spontaneous images, so, thank you Lizanne for bringing a long the black and white sunglasses!

Aren’t they cute?!
This scene really reminds me of the English country side:
P-J wanted some pics under the old rugby poles, he played rugby for many years:
