Calming as rain.

And wild as fire.”

I’m not even sure where to start with this incredible couple. I met Anél & Stefan, almost a year ago, for their engagement shoot – And I fell head over heels in love with them.

I am in awe of their love for one another. Stefan’s face literally lights up in admiration around his beautiful wife. Anél’s energy & enthusiasm is contagious and there is never a dull moment around this gorgeous red-head.

They tied the knot at a rustic little country cottage, Die Akker, just outside Pretoria. Friends and family from all over gathered to celebrate their wedding day.  

As they said their vows to one another, the heavens opened up with a massive downpour. The weather soon cleared up, just in time for an intimate couple shoot. And the celebrations that followed, had every guest in tears of laughter – myself included!

Anél & Stefan,

I can not begin to thank you enough for letting me share in and photograph your wedding. You make me fall in love with my job, all over again. I loved every moment spent with you. I hope you enjoy the photos!

Love, Maryke
