Nadhia and Ria’s Cape Town beach wedding

Nadhia & Ria

This Cape Town beach wedding was such a treat to photograph!  How wonderful to get a glimpse into the lives of two people with so much heart and soul.  And to top it all – to be able to witness how true love always wins in the end, no matter what.

Nadhia & Ria’s Cape Town beach wedding was held at Monkey Valley Resort in Noordhoek.  It was an absolutely glorious winter’s day in Cape Town.  The sun was out, not a breath of wind and the turquoise water of Noordhoek beach made a stunning backdrop.  It could not have been more perfect!

Close family and friends gathered out on the deck forming a circle around the couple.  Each guest held a lantern representing their light and love for Nadhia and Ria’s journey ahead.  What a lovely gesture.  The ceremony was a real tearjerker, and the heartfelt vows were beautiful.  There was loads of spontaneous laughter too!After the ceremony, guests enjoyed afternoon tea.  There was such a laid back vibe, and it was so lovely to capture the precious moments between family and friends.

We ended off the day down at Noordhoek Beach.  What a stunning setting!  The lagoon was clear as glass, and the sunlight golden.  Nadhia and Ria love animals, and I am sure the furry beach goers could sense this, as quite a few of them popped over for a quick “hello.”

We love a couple who don’t mind getting a little bit of sand between their toes, and the bottoms of their wedding outfits wet.  But nothing could prepare us for these two!  Without a single second’s warning, they just took off into the waves!  Much giggling and laughter ensued, and made for some really fun wedding photographs!  This definitely was a Cape Town beach wedding like no other!

Thank you Nadhia and Ria for trusting us with your memories.  It was an honour photographing your wedding!

    I became very emotional going through the pictures, and a quote by Anaïs Nin came to mind: “We do not see things as they are, we see things as we are.” Selma and Andre, I believe that you were able to see and capture our joy and beauty because it is also a reflection of who you are. I feel blessed to have had you as our photographers. The photographs and are truly beautiful. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!!! ?
