“And I’d choose you; in a hundred lifetimes, in a hundred worlds, in any version of reality, I’d find you and I’d choose you.”
—The Chaos of Stars by Kiersten White
On 17 September 2016 I had the opportunity of second shooting this beautiful wedding of Jessie & Jorge at Diep in Die Berg. It is a beautiful venue for small and intimate weddings situated on the slopes of Wapadrand.
The Reception hall was beautifully decorated in a Royal blue and Gold – looking very stylish.
I met up with the Groom, his Groomsmen and family just a short drive away from the venue to do the detail shots and some group photo’s. The Groom’s parents came through for the wedding all the way from Portugal, and they do not understand English. But this language barrier did not worry us at all – communication was done with some great translation assistance from the Groom, and me showing them what I wanted them to do through gestures. I loved every second of capturing the special memories of the Groom’s side of the wedding.
Heading off to the venue, we waited for the rest of the bridal party and Bride to arrive for the Ceremony to start. It was a special ceremony, with some tears – but tears in a good way. I just really love weddings with an abundance of emotion!
After the ceremony, I got to assist and shoot with the main photographer, the Couple session – and the venue had some really beautiful spots we used.
Jessie & Jorge, thank you for a beautiful wedding filled with great moments, love, laughter, joy and tears. May your years to come be filled with some really great adventures.
