Alan & Karen | Wolwedans, Namibia

Wedding Wolwedans Boulders Camp, Namibrand National Park, Namibia

I’m typing this from the back of the 400+ yr Kerk aan Zee at Muiderberg close to Amsterdam in the Netherlands.  A beautiful setting.  I am tagging along as the Sijm Family is preparing for their son’s Wout’s wedding in this special place tomorrow. Outside, you overlook a huge lake that is 5m under sea level.  They say that 50 years ago it was just water.  Now a whole lakeside development fills your horizons with dedicated swim and kitesurfing areas in the foreground.  Everything is wet, green and flat.

I probably can’t get anything more different to what I am about to tell you about – an absolute contrast to what I have experienced back on my continent a few weeks ago.  I want to tell you about a special place in the Namibrand desert.  A place two Ozzies specifically chose and eloped to with literally the whole world as options.  This magic place is Wolwedans.  And I am here to tell you they have chosen so well …

I’ve had the privilege to visit most of the camps at Wolwedans before. One of these kept alluring me – the secluded  & opulent Boulder Camp.  I’ve seen photos and heard rumours, but nothing could prepare me for this absolute splendour.  Air, sky, drama and silence – the fullness of wonder filling every empty space.  My kind of place to shoot.  

I had a great time with Alan & Karen.  What a great couple.  We had sundowners on the boulders, breakfast on the dunes and even climbed a mountain.  Below you can share in this lovely couple’s most special day.  I have been so privileged to experience it all in person.  Thanks you thank you thank you.
