Jill, who is originally from Kenya, lives in Pretoria and her family travelled to South Africa to attend her wedding. The venue, which has a distinct lush and green atmosphere, was perfect for their small and intimate ceremony. The beautiful surroundings provided a wonderful array of stunning and unique areas in which to photograph.
The ceremony was held in the chapel on the property where both Jill and David experienced a whole range of emotions, which was incredibly special to witness. Tears were shed and the love was palpable between the couple and all family members present.
Jill’s father surprised David at the ceremony by giving him a set of keys for their home in Kenya and by telling him that he is always welcome there, even without notice. Their home is now his home. This was one of the loveliest gestures I’ve ever experienced at a wedding. They truly welcomed him into their family, and it was heart-warming for all present.
The reception took place under a canopy next to a river at the bottom of the property. The open-air and spun lights created a great ambience where guests enjoyed themselves into the night. A great end to a truly beautiful day.
