The Potgieter's Story

Shelby and Zander were our last wedding of the season and it was the most perfect end to a brilliant summer, the amazing autumn light and colour, two people who are deeply devoted to each other and have waited a whole year (thanks again COVID) to finally celebrate with those around them. We met with these two a few times and Shelby mentioned how much she really wanted photos where she looked every inch the bride, and I tell you what she looked like the perfect bride! We started before the ceremony and did a first look and couple photos and then these two had an amazing service honouring God and their love for one another in the new chapel out at one of our fave spots, Rosenvale. We took a couple of bridal party photos before the most awesome autumn sunset with these guys and then before the reception we also managed to sneak in a few more photos in the chapel at dusk! 

Their reception was all kinds of awesome, with our introduction into a South African tradition of TRULY heckling the groom through his speech, bouquet toss, the shoe game, some food and cake and then finally three of the most beautiful dances. Zander danced with his mum, and Shelby with her dad before finally coming together and performing a seriously spectacular first dance as husband and wife! We were blown away by their secret dancing talent!!!

Guys, we just LOVED your wedding, it was beautiful and special, and emotional and heartfelt and so honouring to God which is obviously important in your lives. Thank you so much for having us there and congratulations!!!!
