Meerendal Estate Wedding
Lizelle & Vaughan
We only met Lizelle and Vaughan a few days before their Meerendal Estate wedding. And it was probably not under the best of circumstances. Vaughan had literally had his wisdom teeth extracted the afternoon before – poor guy! The utmost respect to him for still making that meeting! But it definitely was not the same Vaughan we met outside the venue on his wedding day! This one was full of emotions both smiles and tears, and I guess this is closer to the REAL Vaughan.
And then there is Lizelle. Isn’t she just gorgeous? Another bride with a pocket dress – LOVE it!
Lizelle and Vaughan made a good choice of venue with their Meerendal Esate wedding. Not only does it have an onsite hotel, where the bride is able to get ready, there is also a chapel adjacent to the wedding venue. This just makes it so much easier, not only for us, but for the wedding guests too. There is no driving around between venues, and people seem to be in a more relaxed mood.
After the ceremony, we did a big group shot in front of the manor house as well as a few family photos. Once done with these, we had to work quite fast, as light was fading quickly. Luckily the rain held off, and we still managed to get some awesome shots. Oh, by the way, don’t you just love Vaughan and his best man’s suits? We thought they were pretty cool.
It got quite chilly after sunset, and I am sure Lizelle & Vaughan were happy to join their guests in the warm cosy reception area. What a lovely chilled wedding vibe. It seems everyone took the opportunity to catch up with those that they had not seen in a long while.
Lizelle & Vaughan, thank you for trusting us to capture your special day. We hope you will look back on your Meerendal Estate wedding and that the memories will be kept alive through our images.
