Where to start with this one….. Firstly I think I need to thank Andrew and Lieza for choosing me to photograph their special day, as it was so amazing and its a wedding like this that reminds me why I love doing what I do. The day was perfect in every aspect, and I just hope that these photos encapsulate and tell the story of it all.
I was lucky enough to meet and photograph Lieza and Andrew engagement pictures a few months before at their farm, and when I left that evening, I knew that the 2 July 2015, would be the best day, and it never failed to deliver. From the morning with the guys at the dam, to watching them share their first dance surrounded by all the nearest and dearest , I was captivated and enjoyed every second of it. Andrew and Lieza you guys rock and are so well suited, I know you going to have such a happy, loving and fun marriage . Here’s a little glimpse into your special day xx

Our wedding was such an amazing success because we had the pleasure of working with such awesome people! A big thank you to Kate, Ali and Nadia from Insingizi who catered to our every whim with such ease and efficiency! Thank you to both Gaby and Carla from Belle and Bravado for all their patience and care. Carla did a fantastic job with my dress alterations and Gaby was so relaxed when it came to dealing with the groom and his “merry” men. A big thank you to my almost – sister Cara for our makeup! And Sarah, my special twin, from Knotts Salon. Without you two we would not have all looked and felt so pretty!
A big thank you to Filly and Sylvia who made the bridesmaids dresses, they were perfect. And to Helene for the flower girl dresses, all the way from Sweden! The fact that the cake was finished before the reception even started is an indication of just how delicious it was, thank you Tanja from Babycakes.
Kerry Dinkelman you are a floral genius, my bouquet was exquisite! And Tyron, our DJ, you are a rockstar… Thank you!
A huge thank you to our “dream team” – Kate and Michelle- you were both so amazing, so calm, cool and collected and you made it all so easy! Thank you for all the love, effort and support. You are both so talented and passionate and your work is testament to that!
