There is so much I can say about Jon + Geraldine’s special day, I actually don’t know where to start. Geraldine emailed me early in the year to enquire about my availability and since then we probably emailed each other on a weekly basis and she told me more about her and Jon and their relationship with God. It was something so special to see these two people promise their lives to one another in front of God and their family and friends. Before the minister said “You may kiss the bride” Jon and Gerry had actually never shared a kiss! I was sure to make them practice it a bit during the couple shoot! hehe.. But my mom and I had so much fun that we felt like friends at the wedding and not like photographers actually working. En dankie Ma dat Ma my so mooi gehelp het, swaar sakke gedra het en gehardloop het as ek roep! Ma is awesome :)
They got married in the prettiest bush church tucked away on a dirt road somewhere close to Kaapse Hoop and their reception was held at Umbali Events. The bush church was so peaceful and gorgeous, and I’ve been to a couple of weddings and this place was just so wow! Guests were seated on wooden benches with a stream of fresh water flowing past them. Magical!
J + G, thank you SO very much for choosing me as your wedding photographer. In the one day that I was with you guys, I learned a lot more about faith and I left feeling pretty amazing. You two are very special and I wish you a blessed road ahead in your beautiful marriage! xx
PS: Geraldine did all the decor and flower arrangements herself! Talented lady!
