“To me, you’ll always be thunderstorms and cloudy night skies.
The reason the moons glow,
and why the suns rise.” – Tyler Kent White
Where do I start telling you about these two beautiful souls and their epic wedding?
Carla and Ruan celebrated their special day at the beautiful, Silver Sixpence Wedding Venue, just outside of Dullstroom, Mpumalanga.
One of the main reasons they fell in love with the venue, was the beautiful outdoor chapel, in the forest on site. Unfortunately, with the heavy downpour and a massive cold front that hit Dullstroom that weekend, the ceremony had to be held indoors. (We did manage to do an amazing sunrise shoot, in the forest, the next morning. But more on that later)
The weather definitely did not dampen any spirits. These two lovebirds, and their epic entourage, faced the cold for a very entertaining photo-session. We even had a little buck join in for a few photos in the rain. Drenched, and close to frostbite, this group made sure of endless entertainment and the most amazing memories.
With umbrellas and fireplaces all around, the venue ensured a cosy reception. A few shots a “whiskas” later and cold feet were completely forgotten. And, as soon as the dance-floor opened, there was no stopping the festivities.
Carla & Ruan – Weereens BAIE dankie vir ‘n ongelooflike lekker naweek – en dat julle ons uit die modder kom sleep het.
Julle is pragtig, en ons het elke oomlik van die bibber-koue dag saam met julle geniet.
And thank you to all the talented suppliers involved:
