Rienne and Johan are both winemakers who met whilst working on a wine farm in California. Rienne is from Australia and Johan is from South Africa. Since meeting and falling in love in the United States, they moved back to Australia and started making their own wine!

Vrede en Lust was certainly the perfect Cape wine farm at which to celebrate their wedding day! The mountain views from this spectacular wine farm are something any guest visiting from abroad will remember forever.

I can’t tell you how much I loved photographing this laid back couple on their big day! Most of Rienne and Johan’s guests flew over from Australia to be there and it was amazing to witness so much love and happiness from friends and family for this ridiculously awesome couple!

Rienne and Johan, thank you so much for choosing me to come and photograph your wedding day for you, I wish we could go back and do it all over again!


When an ice cream truck (The Soft Machine) pulled up for dessert, I nearly died. Tooo cool!
