TELLING STORIES OF

Cassaraine & Antonio | Wedding | Zorgvliet Wine Estate | Stellenbosch

A clear summer???s day, awash with gold, pink and white. A wonderful day, filled with celebration, joy, love and all the good things in life. This is how I???d begin to describe Cassaraine and Antonio???s glorious wedding day!

I did (as I always do) started with the completed d??cor in the Zorgvliet hall, and was totally blown away. I wanted to freeze time and spend about 6 million hours photographing every little detail, there was so much effort and a wonderful amount of attention to detail put into the d??cor. (Which was done by Prickly Pear) I am loving the amount of gold I am seeing coming through in d??cor this season ??? and the little touches of pink and white soften down the gold so that you feel as though you???re living inside a macaroon.

After my assistant, Kelly, dragged me out of the hall, we popped in at Antonio for a few minutes to grab some great photos of the guys getting dressed and having a drink. There was much laughter and a few moments where the nerves were starting to show, and I???m sure that as soon as we left them they ran back to the air-conditioned room to relax.

Of course, the majority of my time was spent with the beautiful bride-to-be (now a Mrs!), Cassaraine. The hair and makeup team did an amazing job and while I was editing her photos I was secretly studying the makeup to see if I could recreate it at a later stage. (spoiler: I can???t!) We did bridal portraits, of which Cassaraine was a total pro! She needed so little direction and was just so full of joy it was so easy to grab every instant.

The ceremony was so moving, with a small sand pouring in between to signify two becoming one, while still staying individuals (love that symbolism!) and ended with a kiss!

The bridal party was SO.MUCH.FUN! I had to stop at one point to catch my breath I was laughing so hard, and these guys and girls made my job so much easier! They led the way for an amazing set of couple photos (seriously, how incredible are these shots?!) where both Cassaraine and Antonio just flowed together perfectly. I don???t remember a single pose that didn???t work, or a correction that needed to be made ??? they just worked together like they are truly meant to be!

The reception was so much fun, hearing funny stories and some tear-jerking moments throughout the speeches, which of course had to lead to the cutting of the cake and the first dance. The best fun was photographing a few minutes of their entire wedding reception on the dance floor and Cassaraine being the one throwing out the best dance moves!

I had an amazing start to my year by photographing Cassaraine & Antonio???s wedding day, and I am so grateful that I could be there. Thank you to the amazing team of suppliers who pulled this off, it was a dream to photograph! And a special thank you to Bernie from Zorgvliet for being so on top of her game the entire day, it was flawless! <3
