Gido & Lize

30 January 2016 Lord Milner Hotel, Matjiesfontein

Matjiesfontein is such a quaint, special place. I have always wanted to photograph a wedding there and I finally had the opportunity on the 30th of January with Gido and Lize’s wedding. Lize is absolutely gorgeous and very creative too. She is a graphic designer and after Gido mentioned that he would love to get married in Matjiesfontein she set to work in planning the ‘look’ she had in mind. The ceremony was held in the lush gardens of the Lord Milner hotel next to a beautiful open Karoo landscape (I just loved the contrast!) and the reception was held in the Transport museum a few meters down the road. All the museum’s vintage motor cars were parked in front of the hotel and for a moment I truly felt like I time travelled looking at all these beautiful cars and the historic Matjiesfontein main road. Lize’s two sisters were her bridesmaids and I must say their dresses were of the most beautiful I have seen. Gido farms on his father’s Karoo farm in Sutherland and this is also where the two newly weds will settle. Lize loves horses and still does horse riding. Luckily she will also be able to do graphic design from the farm (I loved the invitation she designed for their wedding!). Enjoy!!
