Earlier this week I shared Part 1 of Martmarie & Chris’ wonderful farm wedding I shot in South Africa earlier this year. Today I’d like to share Part 2 of their wedding day. For their couple photos we had the beautiful Zonderend mountains as a backdrop and even managed to work in a few shots with the farmyard animals – including a horse, a few goats and some Nguni cattle! As the sun slipped behind the mountains Martmarie & Chris joined their guests in the tent for the cutting of the cake (by Rozanne from The Food Class) followed by some really emotional and heart-warming speeches. One of my favourite parts of the day is photographing the dance moves much later in the evening - capturing the movement, playing around with the colourful disco lights and just loving the expressions on people’s faces while they break out their moves! Martmarie, Chris and their friends partied the night away to an awesome selection of music played by Alwyn & Dirk from Baha Entertainment and it was an absolute treat to photograph.
A big thanks again to Marianne & Lee-Anne from The Oaks Estate for making sure we were fed & watered (the food from Antoinette’s Events was exquisite) and thanks again to Lara for helping capture some of the evening fun.
I would really recommend visiting Greyton if you’ve not been before – it’s a gorgeous village in Overberg around 1.5 hours from Cape Town with really lovely cafe’s & restaurants to enjoy during your stay. Check out the official Greyton Tourism website here. This was my first visit and I definitely plan to go back! Greyton is the perfect choice for a romantic breakaway as well – Monique from Oh Darling Bride spent her honeymoon in Greyton and wrote a lovely blog post about their stay – here.
