I could really write a little short story about this wedding but am going to try not to:)
I absolutely adored shooting this wedding at the beautiful Towerbosch venue. Tamarin booked me ages before their wedding, even before I was pregnant; and on their big day I had a pregnant belly of 30 weeks:) Uncomfortable to say the least. Although I knew beforehand that I might struggle a bit with the baby belly I was quite excited about this wedding as Tamarin and Alwyn seemed like such an awesome couple and Tamarin is any photographer’s dream with her striking looks.
I was not prepared though for the amazing time I was going to have at this wedding. From the beginning to the end I had an absolute blast shooting this wedding. Tamarin was a dream bride – she looked amazing in her Elizabeth Stockenstrom dress, had the funkiest wedding shoes and she was the calmest, funnest bride anyone could ask for. To top it off she had two fantastic bridesmaids who enjoyed every moment with her and everyone made me feel like they were completely at home in front of the camera. The best you could ask for as a photographer is clients who completely trust you and gives you complete creative freedom. This was definitely the case in this instance!
Right up to the end of the wedding everyone involved in the wedding was so much fun and the easiest “models” I ever had the privilege to photograph. Tamarin and Alwyn’s families made me feel like family and everyone kept asking me if I was okay and coping with the baby bump.
I have been having such a hard time editing these photos as I really wanted to use almost all the photos I’ve taken and there were loads! I am therefore going to post this wedding in two parts as there will just be too many photographs for one post:)
Tam en Alwyn EN julle familie; SO baie dankie vir die fantastiese dag en dat julle die vir my so ongelooflik maklik en lekker gemaak het om julle troue af te neem! Ek hoop julle love die fotos net so baie soos ek!
– Zanelle Lategan, thanks for being such an amazing assistant on the day and for helping me carry my heavy bags and making sure I was hydrated at all times
– Do yourself a favour and visit Towerbosch. The starter at this wedding was the best thing I’ve ever tasted:) Salmon with baby potatoes and young beans with a lemon-tasting sauce. I’ve been dreaming about this dish ever since the wedding!!!
