Maryke Albertyn Photography Best Award Winning Destination Wedding Photographer from Johannesburg with Fine Art Documentary approach for Alternative Bohemian and Destination Couples in Magoebaskloof Cheerio Gardens Most Forest Outdoor Ceremony

As a traveling photographer, I have the privilege of visiting some of the most beautiful places in our country. And Magoebaskloof is definitely one of my favourite wedding destinations: A few, short hours drive from Johannesburg, and you can lose yourself in lush forests and breathtaking landscapes.

Nic & Amanda travelled all the way from Qatar to say their ‘I do’s’ at the beautiful, Cheerio Gardens – A gem of a wedding venue. They have the most beautiful gardens, cherry blossoms and wonderful staff on duty.

This amazing couple has an incredible sense of adventure, an appreciation for the outdoors and hearts made of gold. The downpour did not dampen any spirits, and they continued with their outdoor ceremony as planned – thank you for umbrellas and fire places!

With muddy feet, warm hearts and champagne, they celebrated into the night with their friends and family.

Nic & Amanda

Thank you so much for a wonderful day together. I hope that this rain has only been an added blessing and another adventurous story to tell your children one day 😉 May you relive each and every one of these moments with full hearts and amazing memories!

Sending you love,


Another massive thank you to all  the talented venders for making this magical day possible:
