Meerendal Estate, Cape Town

When I first met Hector and Danièle for their engagement shoot in May 2019, I could see that they have a very special bond. Both are kind, with hearts of gold, a pair of extremely driven individuals yet their personalities don't over power each other. Together they have a beautiful synergy and it was humbling to experience how deeply they love; sneaking glances of each other to check in and softly holding hands during the big moments. 

They chose Meerendal Estate for their celebration as Danièle frequently runs marathons here on the farm and it is one of Hector's favourite location for MTB races. The venue provided an intimate setting for their full day to unfold and when the clouds gathered after their I Do's they saw the moodier weather as paying homage to Hector's Scottish roots along with his Navy plaid suit. I'll always remember their day is warm with laughter, smiles, hugs and tears of joy.
