Paarl Wedding | Grant + Melissa | Belair

Secret-Garden-meets-Great-Expectations-meets-Lewis-Caroll’s-Through-the-Looking Glass is how Melissa described their wedding day to me in an email.

I have to admit, I’ve never really photographed a wedding quite like this one before and I was slightly nervous. But there is nothing like stepping out of your comfort zones every so often to experience the wild and crazy wedding day ride that is so unique to each couple.

Being more than slightly intrigued by bride’s wedding gowns and the one each one chooses for their big day, I was literally licking my lips off in anticipation of this one.

It was a collaborative effort between the bride (a designer of her own label) and the talented Elbeth Gillis. The result was just breathtaking. Delicate skin hugging lace that was hand dyed several times to get it to the exact right hue.

And the rings. Oh my gosh I guess I should mention the shoes more seeing as they were Oscar de la Renta, but the rings needs a special mention. I think I died and went to heaven twice whilst photographing them that morning. Simply exquisite.

I hope you enjoy looking at a wedding that’s a little different to what you usually see on my blog, but no less beautiful and filled to the brim with emotion.
