Janine en Aubrey – Grace Falls Wedding Photography

I would like to introduce two of our very special personal friends they are Janine and Aubrey. We have known them for quite some time, well Janine longer than Aubrey though but indeed two very delightful and cheerful people.

We were in the fortunate position of sharing and capturing their very special day with all those moments, smiles and of course those interesting friends and ever present loving family members.

Let us start with Janine, if ever you take the dictionary and look-up the meaning of positive, happy and cheerful you will see a photo of her. She is one of those special women that is just always smiling and when are within her space that becomes contagious. She is also very dedicated with gets just what she wants no matter how hard she has to work, indeed a rare quality. As the priest has said ” rare gem ” and for those that were there – yes this is where we share the laughs !!!

Janine looked absolutely gorgeous in her dress and blew them all away, especially Aubrey who behind the huge smile, had some tears hidden. This is why we love to share other love stories come true, true love is one of the beauties of nature.

Aubrey is a bright young man, always willing to assist and help where he can and the best part of this, he does it with just as much enthusiasm and a big smile on his face as his bride Janine.

As was dedicated to him on their toast was the fact that father in law and Aubrey had spent quite some together recently and shared a lot of laughs but always getting back to business and that is doing it with happiness.

Whenever these two are together they light up a room and it is easy to see how two people should complement each other.

A very special moment in the day’s proceedings was the prayer and message Janine had pre-recorded and played just before walking down the aisle, this brought tears to not just Aubrey but almost everyone attending and this is one of the reasons Aubrey could not pack up his smile, his love for Janine was proclaimed many times during the speeches and you had to be deaf not hear him speak with love and respect about his bride and wife.

This love story had its take off right here in Pretoria at Grace Falls wedding venue, a neat compact venue that offers a little bushveld and the calmness with a flowing river right on the doorstep.

We want to wish you well on your journey.

En mag daai windpomp net liefde oor julle huweliks pad waai

Gys en Miche by Morgenzon – Pretoria Wedding Photographer

When you sit down with a couple to discuss their wedding day and how they vision it panning out one can quickly see the level of nervousness but with these two special people all they portrayed was calmness, they were so relaxed, you could see they had it all under control and nothing was going to spoil their wedding.

But let us get to their wedding day.  Gys and the guys got dressed off site and with brother leading the pack they had a very good time sharing some old memories and doing just guy stuff. We were lucky to get some portraits done before a light stint of rain – just enough to wet the grass.

Miche and the girls got dressed at the very neat Morgenzon wedding venue in the North of Pretoria. This venue offers you the best of two worlds, from the front you have the old Cape style built house with roses and lavender to guide you, at the back of the venue the big lawn is covered in shade with very old and big trees. This gives you the feel of a forest almost, indeed a gem in the North.

As wedding planning progresses you sometimes make up words or phrases and that seems to follow you throughout, in this case an old Afrikaans saying ” gooi mielies ” meaning to throw maize is one of those that seem to have made its way into this wedding. The saying sprung up even when deciding on the confetti and that is how the ” mielies ” got in there, popped corn.

As with every wedding there is something extraordinary happening sometime during the day and yes we were very fortunate to be there when this one took place, as most of their friends know Miche LOVES to sing, anywhere AND everywhere and she had done just that as she dedicated a real love song to Gys. I must say compliments to you Miche it was brilliant and everyone loved it.

So on that cheerful note we want to wish you guys all the very best for you journey.

Minette en Herman – Jakkalsdraai Bloemfontein

Photographing a wedding is just everyday business, or so most people think and for the largest part that could be true but when you are requested to photograph a fellow photographers wedding it becomes something else.

 This is the very gorgeous Minette, a fellow wedding photographer from Bloemfontein and her very hip husband Herman.

It is always a treat to work with a bride, not only are they radiant but just everything about them on that special day just fall into place. The best part of this bridal shoot was that the bride knew exactly what she wanted and how she wanted it and made our work just so much easier as there was less explaining on what to do and how to do it as Minette was a great example of a bride, a beautiful bride with a gorgeous dress just call for awesome memories.

Herman and the best men all got dressed at the venue, Jakkalsdraai wedding venue in Bloemfontein. As can be expected on the Highveld a little afternoon showers but if the forecast says sunny and hot with very little chance of rain, be sure to tempt fate, first we had a light swift shower followed by the latest irritation – Load Shedding, man this can be annoying. But never the less we had some great times shooting with the boys right after the rain and we were blessed with some awesome clouds to fill the back ground.

The ceremony was blessed with good weather and also gave us a little time to get the old folk in a few shots before they had to run for cover of the rain again. 

One of the most difficult assignments of a wedding is to be the master of ceremonies, either too loud and sound bossy or not enough and not getting any results, but if you have a razor sharp guy with authority and a good sense of humour it calls for attention and some great laughs throughout the evening.

We really had a good time spending time with the two of you and hope your dreams are just the start of what is to follow.

Love from Jenna and George.
