Cape Town Vow Renewal

Alex & Shaun

What a beautiful day it was for Alex and Shaun’s Cape Town vow renewal .  What an honour it was for us to capture a few special moments for them.  Alex, Shaun and their families have become very dear to us.  We’ve done quite a few shoots for them already,  It feels more as if they are old friends than just clients.

Alex and Shaun’s Cape Town vow renewal ceremony was in the lovely little stone chapel in Tokai.  It was a perfect summer’s day in Cape Town.  In fact it was quite hot!   But it was lovely and cool inside the chapel.  Not only did Alex and Shaun renew their vows, they also had a small dedication ceremony for their little boy.  Isn’t he just a sweetie?  Do check out his super cute expressions during the family photos!

After the service, we went down with the family to Tokai Forest.  What a wonderful respite from the heat under the tall pine trees.  I think we would possibly have melted if it wasn’t for them!

We had loads of fun taking the family photos, and then ending off with a couple shoot.

The moment of the day certainly was when an entire herd of horses came thundering by taking us all by surprise!  I googled the meaning of seeing horses unexpectedly, and this was the first thing I read:

“I discovered that the horse is life itself, a metaphor but also an example of life’s mystery and unpredictability, of life’s generosity and beauty, a worthy object of repeated and ever changing contemplation.” ~ Jane Smiley

I thought this was so apt for this lovely couple.

Thank you Alex and Shaun, for giving us the opportunity of capturing the special moments of your Cape Town vow renewal with your close family and friends.  You guys are all amazing!
