Suzanne and I were treated like guests when we turned up to photograph this wedding. Going home at the end of the day with some new friends made was a massive bonus for us. If shooting events like this was what happened every Saturday, or whichever day of the week, I would probably be the happiest photographer in the world…hands down. Who am I kidding? I am the happiest photographer in the world. I love what I do.
A more romantic setting could not have been picked by Yolandi and Stephan for tying the knot. Nambiti Hills offer all the romance needed. Staying in absolute luxury and getting pampered in the days leading up to the wedding day must be an experience to treasure for a lifetime. Judging by the relationship Yolandi and Victoria (the wedding co-ordinator) formed in a short time, the services at Nambiti Hills must be something you’ll write home about.
A very intimate ceremony out on the deck, with a view of the veld added magic to what can sometimes be one of the more boring parts of a wedding day. The day was only attended by close friends and family. Even the minister was a family friend.
After the wedding ceremony, all the guests were treated to a stunning game drive, and we got some delightful shots whilst braving the chilly breeze. The fading light of the setting sun over the Natal bush veld added to the romance. Yolandi was so brave, getting in and out of her warm fleecy top to help me get the images they’ll look at in twenty years to remember the freezing cold breeze and their magical day.
When our time with them came to an end, we left with some warm, warm memories though. This is one wedding I know I will treasure the memories of.
