South African thriller novelist Deon Meyer, got married to his Flying Marianne in Stellenbosch on Saturday. What a privilege it was to capture these two surrounded by an intimate, hand picked group of guests and family.
Their beautiful ceremony was held at the United Church in Stellenbosch, whereafter all the guests walked to the amazing Jardine Restaurant for the reception. Deon and Marianne both organised a special surprise for one another. The legendary Lize Beekman was Marianne's surprise to Deon where she sang two beautiful, personal songs to the couple during the ceremony. (She also acted as a light model for me as I did the set up - thanks Lize for being such a humble and fun soul).
After a few hours of leaving them with their guests to enjoy their lunch, I met up with Deon and Marianne at his surprise for her - the magnificent Silo Hotel in the Cape Town Waterfront. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful to assist us in our late afternoon shoot. Thank you to all for your kindness, access and for making the couple feel extra special.
I love the images we were able to create here. Deon and Marianne were great sports and were keen to get something special. I think we managed!
As we stood on the terrace overlooking Table Mountain, Deon and I again voiced what a beautiful place we get to live in. A truly special day and moment in this unique country of ours.
Dankie vir julle vertroue in my om hierdie spesiale dag vas te vang. Ek sien uit na ons volgende shoots saam! Alles van die beste en blessings vir julle op julle pad vorentoe.
Enjoy these moments with this beautiful couple.
And a special thank you to Madelaine for putting us all in touch!
