Cape Town Wedding | Ralph + Zandri | Stonewall Wine Farm

Everybody knows of that book and movie “The Secret”. Right? One of the stories in the book that I always remember is how the author pinned a picture of what his dreamhouse looked like onto his vision board. Years later after a successful career and finally buying a nice house, he unpacks the box only to find the picture he had once tore out a magazine and pinned on his vision board. He had bought that exact house! Like the exact same house as in that picture. Some would say that is freaky, but I now know it to be true.

When I moved to Cape Town 3 years ago I would sometimes drive past this farm on the R44. Back then I wasn’t that familiar with the roads and I didn’t even have a clue where I was most of the time. I would always see this one farm on the right hand side with the two ponies and a horse or two. There was a bigger farm with much more impressive horses a few kilometres in front of this one. But somehow this smaller farm had my attention. I would find myself looking out for it whenever I’m in the area and wishing that I could photograph a wedding there. There was just something about it. But alas, the farm was a private residence and I knew it wasn’t meant to be.

Until this past December when I finally entered the driveway of Stonewall Wine Farm on my way to meet a bride.

You see, on this farm lives two beautiful sisters and a brother. The older sister got married a few years ago but it was the other sister’s turn. And I was lucky enough to be her photographer.

You see, I truly do believe in “The Secret”. If you send positive energy out, it will somehow come back to you!

And what a wedding it was… Ralph and Zandri are both lawyers that met and fell in love during their studies at the University of Stellenbosch. Because it is such a special place for them, this is also where we decided to do most of their couple shoot.

And Zandri’s dress? It was made by the famous duo Christiaan and Malcolm from Klûk CGDT. I felt a little starstruck as the two of them came to dress her personally in a one of the kind gown. You will also notice that this wedding doesn’t have a Service Provider list. Because everyone in this family helped with something to make this day special.

And what a wedding it was..
