To heaven and back

To heaven and back

A magnificent day that will be remembered by many for a long time – including myself! It’s been an amazing build-up to this day, which started months ago with a photo session in Johannesburg and a pre-shoot in the Drakensberg mountains the day before the wedding. Everybody was worried about the weather and despite the expected rain the day turned out beautifully – a perfect fit for such a fantastic couple and superb celebrations! A striking colour scheme of orange and silver, the romantically (planned) horse scene and an unforgettable helicopter flight to heaven and back!

But let me start right at the beginning:

For a wedding we most certainly need…

of course… nothing is going to happen without these (aren’t they stunning?)…

A headpiece is maybe rather unusual – but for this wedding and this bride absolutely essential!

And no less awesome – just not blue-eyed, but makes up for it with heaps of charm and cheek

    Hey Nats, these images really rock! No jokes.

    How you do it again and again baffles me ;-) ……I hope you like being in a class of your own while we waddle around the beginners class.
