Ruth and Doug's Wedding

Just as Ruth was about to walk down the aisle of St George's Cathedral in Franschhoek, the electricity went out - true Africa style. No accompanying organ for the wedding March or scheduled hymns and no air con on a very hot summer's day in the winelands. No one seemed too bothered by this though, least of all the bride, who walked down the aisle with her dad in simple silence.

There were so many more beautiful aspects to this wedding.. .the reception at Tokara in Stellenbosch was absolutely stunning (definitely one of the most beautiful venues I've worked at so far), the bride and groom were completely mesmerised with each other, and the whole affair had such a lovely and relaxed vibe - but what struck me the most by the end of the day was how great the whole family was. Everyone seemed to adore each other and have so much fun together. Definite warm fuzzy feeling stuff.

Anyway there's a lot more I could say but it's Monday and I'm still waiting for caffiene to kick in. I'm sure it's the images you guys are really interested in anyway so here you go:

How much excitement can one person contain? I LOVE the energy in this shot.

    Stunning shots! Was browsing your site when I saw the new article appear and just had to comment. Jules, your work is so funky and fresh, even though I'm already married I come and look at this site regularly just to feel inspired. The expression on the brides face in the first picture brilliant! No electricity - no problem, Ruth looks like she has enough energy to run Cape Town. Keep shooting such amazing photo's and I'll keep watching......

    I am having my second reception at Tokara - do you have any more images from the venue? would LOVE to see them. I am in the USA so I am not able to stop by there, and was only able to visit once.
