Lauren & Adrian’s Bon Cap Wedding

Shooting a Bon Cap wedding is always such a treat.  The seasons bring change to the scenery and it’s always exciting to see how the valley is dressed for the occasion.

Lauren and Adrian are nature lovers.  They spend loads of time outdoors, so Bon Cap Guest Farm and Wedding Venue was the perfect setting for them.  Set in a beautiful valley on the edge of the little Karoo, the views are magnificent.  Lauren is an equine vet, so the friendly horses on the farm next door made a perfect backdrop for the couple shoot.

Lauren and Adrian chose simple, rustic décor with splashes of purples, greens and pinks.  We loved the cute torchlights which were wedding favours for the guests.

Both Lauren and Adrian did their preparations at Gannakop Guesthouse just two minutes from Bon Cap.  Emotions were running high and the odd few tissues came in very handy!

The ceremony took place in the underground barrel room.  It’s such a romantic setting, and definitely one of the selling points for a Bon Cap Wedding.  We loved the beautiful ring ceremony that consisted of passing the ring along a string to be blessed by family and completing the full circle back to the couple.

After the ceremony, guests enjoyed canapes.  Lauren and Adrian joined them for a while and did the cutting of the gorgeous “cheese tower.”

As it was an overcast day, our light disappeared rather quickly.  We had a lovely stop at the paddocks and Lauren and Adrian did a little horse whispering making some new friends.  Sadly most of the spring flowers had closed due to the low light and cloud cover, but we managed to find a small patch of little pinkies.  The wind was icy, and Adrian was well prepared with his green beanie.  He reckons he spends 90% of his time with a beanie on, so that was pretty much him during the couple shoot!

The wedding reception was festive and fun.  As usual the Bon Cap wedding team did an outstanding job with the food.  When it was time for us to leave, it seemed the party was really heating up and everyone was having a great time!

Thank you Lauren and Adrian for choosing us to photograph your Bon Cap Wedding day!  You two are very special people, and we have really enjoyed getting to know you both!

Adrian, this is for you:

What we’ll always remember about their wedding day

  • Real laughter and real fun and real people!
  • Being ‘non horsey’ people and in fact quite scared of them, and seeing how gentle and beautiful the interaction was between them and the wedding couple.
  • The cute little torches that were given as wedding favours
  • Any wedding that has a few tears is always a goodie!
  • The Eagle flying up high as we turned down the dirt road to Bon Cap.  Special significance to the groom especially.
