I met the lovely Annie in 2011, just after Stefan asked for her hand in marriage, and since then we have gotten to know each other pretty well during the planning of their big day. The date was a special one: 12/12/12, and I just knew this was going to be a different and fun wedding.
The day started with really bad and rainy weather, and while all of us prayed for blue sky, the staff at Zambesi Point Wedding Venue put the final touches on the ceremony and reception. The sun came out as we arrived at Pillow and Spoon, and we were greeted by an excited but calm bride, a nervous groom and the chilled groomsmen. The count down began! We chased the grooms party away to the venue as soon as they were ready to prevent them seeing the bride. Final touches on the make-up and hair, slipping into the dress and the glamorous bride and bridesmaids emerged.
The ceremony was very special, with Annie deciding to profess her love without the microphone, and Stefan whispering his vows in her ear. Mr and Mrs De Jager then walked down the aisle to loads of congratulations from their family and friends. We had an amazing couple shoot with some dramatic cloudy skies, and some very sexy shots before we joined the guests for a lovely dinner in the lapa. What really struck me about this wedding was the attention to detail, which was fun and refreshing!
Annie and Stefan, thank you for including Sherrie (my wonderful hardworking assistant) and I in your special day. You truly do fit together "Soos n Puzzle", and I wish you all of the best for the future filled with lots of love that continues to grow.
Here is a sneak peak of this special day, and for those interested the suppliers are listed below.
Quirky and often described as rather eccentric, I am a lover of all things beautiful. Capturing special moments and making my clients look and feel beautiful is what makes me happy!
