“A blue, black shade of love.
Sent from above.
Your breath’s like wine,
And just like clouds, my skin crawls.
It’s so divine, the sky it glows with fields of light.

Did you know that I love you?
Until the end of time.”

There is a wonderful little story behind this wedding: How I met these two beautiful souls and where it all began. About three years ago, a lovely couple, named Jana & Gerrie, contacted me to photograph their Destination Wedding. Everything around their big day, their families and love for one another, stole my heart. Jana’s sister, Suzanne, was no exception. A gorgeous, bubbly, little blonde lady with a heart made of gold. Jana & Gerrie’s wedding was the first that Suzanne & Lourens attended together. It was also the night that Lourens officially asked Suzanne to be his girlfriend.

After delivering Jana & Gerrie’s wedding photos, Suzanne sent me message: “I want you to photography my wedding one day.” Fast forward a few years to a heartwarming wedding enquiry from Suzanne & Lourens. They were engaged!!! My heart melted, and excitement ran high to photograph another Hattingh – Wedding.

Me and Jasper were welcomed like family on their big day. And it was such a privilege to share the celebrations with this amazing family.

The beautiful, Whispering Thorns, venue was completely transformed into a festive celebration for this amazing couple.

Madly in love, they shared their day with loved one’s, and I am so excited to share their story with you.

Suzanne & Lourens

Julle harte is goud. Julle liefde vir mekaar en julle mense is so mooi en opreg. Dit was ‘n voorreg om in julle groot dag tedeel. Dankie dat ons elke oomlik soos gaste kon voel. Kon saam lag en kuier. Mag die fotos vir julle ewige herhinneringe wees van ‘n besonderse avontuur saam!

Baie liefde, Maryke & Jasper
