The Olive Press, Boschendal Estate, Franschhoek

I met Suné for coffee almost a year ago on a cold winters afternoon in Stellenbosch. Her sheer excitement about their celebration and marrying the man of her dreams had me super excited to document their big day. JP and Suné are truly 'sout van die aarde' people. They have hearts as big as the African continent, they care deeply for the family and friends and I immediately felt apart of their tribe when arriving at Bosjes.

Sure, this venue is something incredible and it was a dream to finally document a wedding here, but the location played second fiddle to the love, celebration and warmth experienced between everyone. Come to think of it, this group of people made this particular Saturday not feel like work. What an honour to work alongside such a stellar team of industry peers. 5 May 2018 will hold a deep significance to my career. Enjoy some of my favourite frames from this day!
