Back in April I spent ten days in Cape Town, South Africa where I had the wonderful opportunity to shoot two couple sessions, as well Mariette & Quintin’s elegant wedding in Stellenbosch. They chose Zorgliet Wine Estate in the Banhoek Valley as their wedding venue and it’s easy to see why! Not only is the venue located in the heart of the breath-taking Stellenbosch wine region, but it’s a beautiful blank canvas – perfect for each couple to make their own.
Having shot at Zorgvliet before (click here to see Marike & Anthony’s wedding), I was excited to be back here again, working with Christine and her lovely team.
The day was a relaxed celebration of Mariette & Quintin’s love for each other and with only 76 guests it felt like an intimate family affair. With bridal and groom preparations taking place at Zorgvliet, I was able to capture the excitement in both camps on the morning of the wedding. I always take my time capturing the special moments you experience as a bride – from putting on the dress (Mariette’s wedding gown was by Enzoani), to your earrings, to a spritz of perfume. Everything you do on the morning of your wedding is much more special than on any other day!
The ceremony took place in the chapel on the Zorgvliet estate and afterwards guests were transported back to main venue, on the back of a tractor – perfect for a winelands wedding.
The venue was styled to perfection by Annegret and her team from Sitting Pretty Bespoke Event Design. Instead of round tables, Mariette & Quintin opted for two beautiful long tables, with a canopy of lights suspended from the gorgeous ceiling and an abundance of flowers on the tables. Soft & elegant.
It was such a lovely day and I had a great time capturing it all while working alongside Mustard Seed Films.
Congratulations Mr & Mrs Sullwald. I wish you all the love and happiness in the world!
Here are just a few of my favourites from the day.
