Mountain Vows

By April 24, 2017Wedding

Mountain Wedding Photography:
Arriving at the top of a mountain, overlooking the most spectacular sunset views – my soul felt a strange buzz of calm.
I met Cadi’s family the night before and was pleasantly surprised with a few hotdogs around a camp fire, a cup of coffee and endless conversation under the stars with down to earth family and friends of the couple.

 

The next morning started bright and early for everyone.  But luckily these farming communities are used to rising before the sun!  I met the groom with his happy crowd for a their prep photos.  The men were all full of jokes over their morning cups of coffee and it started the day on a cheerful note.  I got a good bit of exercise in on this day, running up and about between the chalets at the bottom of the venue and up to the top where the women were getting ready, dressed and pampered.  The air was filled with smiles, excitement and so many emotions.

When it came time for the ceremony, everyone was stunned by the breathtaking view over the valley below. What a perfect setting to exchange vows of love. The rest of the day was spent celebrating with delicious food, good conversation and all round happy crowds.

A big thank you to Noupoort Mountain Estate for playing such a big role in putting together this beautiful day!
