Mount Aqua Wedding Photos for Janis and Lizelle,
This couple and their wedding venue must count as one of our favourites of all time, they are just so amazing together, very easy to work with and to top it all they are soft on the eye to photograph.
Mount Aqua Wedding Venue was specially built for this wedding on the family farm just outside of the old Potgietersrus now called Mokopane.
Janis is so much a farmer, at peace whenever he is with his animals or out on the farm. He loves nature and all is boasts. He also had an idea or two up his sleeves for the wedding car.
Janis got dressed on the farm in a cottage overlooking a beautiful dam right next to the reception venue and this made my life as a photographer so easy, we could manage to drive to the cattle for some shots right after the guys got dressed. Janis is one of those people who make you feel right at home even when you are working.
Lizelle, what can we say, you surely are one the most beautiful brides we had the pleasure of sharing their day with. Super easy to photograph and a pleasure to be around. The girls got dressed at a lovely golf estate and architecture made for some beautiful images.
The ceremony took place right at the foot of a gorgeous mountain on the farm, this called for some spectacular images, and boy did we get some.
For the romantic photos Janis prepared this old FORD Truck to tackle the farm terrain, it gave some awesome shots by its self and also a lot of excitement. On the way back from deep within the farm we seem to have lost them just to discover later we have to look for them as it broke down, they apparently waved at us but we missed it . . . . . .
Anyway getting back to the reception, as with so many farm weddings it almost felt like coming home, everyone could not wait for them to get back to business so the party could start, it sure was a party just the way his friends made him feel the pressure of getting through the speech.
All good fun in the end, everyone had a very special time enjoying the reception and it will be talked about for some time in the future.
Well the very best of special wishes for the two of you.
The bride and the day are captured beautifully.
Wow i absolutely love the images. Photographs are a good way to keep memories and a good photographer is an asset and a blessing. I love your work.
