Marené + Jaco | Weddings

So much Laughter. So many happy hugs. This is what I remember most about Marené + Jaco’s wedding day at Rockhaven last month.

You might remember these two from their enagegement session (which you can see here). It was lots and lots of fun having Marené + Jaco in front of my camera again and it was such a treat to photograph their big day at one of my favourite wedding venues in the Western Cape, Rockhaven. There is something very special about the Elgin Valley and I love love LOVE landing up there!

Marené’s elegant Elizabeth Stockenstrom dress was the perfect match for her and I absolutely loved Jaco’s sweet bicycle boutonniere!

A special thank you to Tanja Kibogo who second shot for me (while she was down from Germany on holiday!) and also to my awesome assistant Claire Nicola!

Happy Monday gorgeous people!

    Catherine I dont know you at all but these photos are just breathtaking not to mention this couple. You have captured every beautiful moment which is so special – you can feel the love so heart warming. If ever I get married I will wait for a date that you are available!
