A Cherry Glamping Wedding! Say what? We’d been dying to shoot here, so when Ankia & Pieter told us this would be their wedding venue, we were beyond excited! Being wedding photographers in Cape Town, we have so many venues to choose from, but it truly is those away weddings that get us most excited!
But before we tell you any more about this Cherry Glamping wedding, let’s just take a moment to introduce you to our couple. Rewind six years. We met Ankia on a media trip to McGregor organized by Mira of McGregor Country Getaways. This tall striking lass with the dark hair and piercing eyes was single at the time.
A year later, and on our second media trip together, this was about to change. Along came Pieter. With his gentle demeanor and kind heart, how was Ankia to say “no” when he asked her out on this VERY weekend!? They hadn’t been together for 1 hour, and Andre & I said to each other: “Imagine how cool it would be if we got to shoot their wedding.” Well, 5 years down the line, and that was to become a reality. I’ll never forget the pang of excitement the day we received that email!
Ankia & Pieter’s Cherry Glamping wedding could not have been more perfect for them. They love nature, they love different, they love the no frills and fuss vibe! And so do we!
It’s always wonderful to see family and friends taking a blank canvas and transforming it into something special that reflects the personalities of the couple. We loved the natural florals and greens, and Ankia’s newly acquired macramé skills provided a few accent pieces.
