Thalana & Glenn | Wedding | Rhebokskloof | Paarl
Anybody that has met, or even spoken to Thalana & Glenn for more than 5 minutes, can attest that these are two of the nicest people in the world. The speeches at the wedding were a true testament that these are people that are loved deeply by those around them and hearing stories and accounts of their lives really made me feel a part of the day.
It was a totally stunner of a day at one of my new favourite venues – Rhebokskloof in Paarl. What an absolute gem! It is set in a stunning location with lovely rolling hills and a beautiful garden, which is just topped off with the dam at the bottom. Thalana & Glenn couldn’t have chosen a?? more perfect venue!
I started off the day with going to Glenn & his groomsmen. They got ready and popped some champagne while getting a few photos taken. A win in my book! Next we went to Thalana, where she was finishing up with makeup and hair. I grabbed some beautiful detail photos and we started the dressing process. With a dress that poofy, you definitely need a team of bridesmaids, and Thalana’s bridesmaids were on point and ready to jump in at any point to help make everything picture perfect. Thalana’s bridal portraits went off without a hitch, and she looked stunning. My favourite is definitely the shot taken of her sitting under her veil – just so stunning and timeless!
When it came time for the ceremony, all eyes were on Glenn, and his reaction did not disappoint. Thalana had prepared a surprise bagpiper for Glenn as she walked down the aisle, and his reaction to seeing her says it all. I may or may not had tears in my eyes!
The bridal party and couple shoot were amazing. I had so much fun photographing this dynamic group of people, and ending the session with the lovely couple. Glenn and Thalana are two people who love each other so much and it’s really a privilege to see. They always speak kindly to one another, with gentle touch or loving voice. Both my assistant and I took a second to admire them during the couple session -?? a love like this truly is once in a lifetime and Thalana & Glenn found it in one another.
Of course the reception was so much fun – the speeches were great and the shoe game was hilarious! I loved how excited they both got at the game and it definitely made for amazing photos! The first dance was so sweet and these two can really move! I loved their first dance photos – it was so special and with a swirly, twirly dress like that it made for great movement! Not much later the entire dance floor was full and everybody was up and dancing!
It was the perfect spring time wedding and I am so grateful that I got the opportunity to work with these wonderful people, who make your heart feel so full.
