Vanessa is such a lovely, spontaneous person and since she lives in Australia, I got to know her through her detailed, chirpy e-mails. She is a Capetonian girl who met the equally spontaneous and friendly Craig (who is Australian), at mutual friends wedding in 2013. It was literally love at first sight for these two. I loved documenting their wedding because it was a visual feast (like her beautiful dress and vibrant décor colours) and there were so many genuine and fun moments to capture. They chose the beautiful Webersburg Estate in the Stellenbosch winelands as their venue and I swear the mountains were extra blue on the 26th of September! It was such a gorgeous and happy day.
