Emily + Bruce | Weddings

I love it when love goes all international.. Emily is from the United States, Bruce is from South Africa and they met, fell in love and live in Hong Kong where Bruce is based as a pilot.

I was lucky enough to be at their beautiful wedding, held at Rockhaven Farm in the Elgin Valley. I had a very proud Capetonian moment when, during the speeches, it was pointed out that out of all the guests present, only about five of them were from Cape Town, everyone else had traveled far and wide to be there!

One of my favourite moments of the day was when, just after the ceremony during the cocktail hour, Emily arranged for a surprise fly over by one of Bruce’s friends who is also a Pilot, he did the most amazing stunts and Bruce was absolutely gobsmacked at Emily’s amazing surprise!

A special thank you to Emily and Bruce for being so patient to see some of their wedding photos (and to my couples who’s photos will be on the blog soon) as I have had a recent back injury which annoyingly has made sitting down for more than 5 minutes at a time near impossible (Murphy’s law, I can do everything but sit!), which is not ideal for editing!

Happy Thursday gorgeous people! I hope you enjoy some of my favourite photos from Emily and Bruce’s beautiful day in the Elgin Valley..

    Truly magnificent photos Cat. Of course it helps when the couple are so beautiful!! What a day it was. Even organised the weather plus red apples on the trees all about. Spectacular event all round, topped off by the aerobatic display. Memorable in every way and captured perfectly.
