Meet Madelein and Abrie,
This is the happy couple who’s engagement session as you will recall had only smiles and laughter from start to finish and from then on the happiness and smiles have only grown bigger.
Abrie is one of those guys who really cares for his friends and cherish their friendship, we had a good time getting dressed and sharing a couple of last minute socials before the day started getting more serious. As a special friendship gesture they had these gorgeous personalised glasses made in small gift boxes and that has just set the tone for the day.
The guys and I had shot some great portraits in the woods and close to the venue up to just as the first guests had arrived and Abrie had to take care of the welcoming.
Madelein the girls and Jenna had in the mean time made full use of the fresh air and light breeze while capturing gorgeous portraits inside and out in the garden. This was only the start of the fun, it always make for a grand entrance when the bridal car is an antique, but squeezing 4 girls and a driver into a relative small vehicle with no aircon and traveling around 20 Km is just awesome.
Madelein and Abrie had chosen an open air ceremony at one of the very few real forest destinations in Die Boskapel, this great venue is enroute from Pretoria to Delmas. It is a real forest with huge trees and offers an open air or a closed venue for the ceremony. The forest with the trees and little paths leading you right into the heart of the forest is a great backdrop for some intimate shots, there is then also the option of the orchards and the grass plane with awesome sunsets.
As with any wedding the one thing that kept everyone busy was the photo booth, young and old had lots of fun and as the evening progressed they all returned with more courage and made the stage their own.
And now with all the funnies behind us we want to wish you well on your venture as a married unity.
Jenna and George
