Roca Restaurant Wedding

Mandisa & Rod

We got to shoot another glorious Roca Restaurant wedding filled with so many fabulous moments.  One thing that we’ve realized over the years, is that your guests play such an integral part in your wedding day.  And this was so evident in Mandisa & Rod’s special celebration.

Without guests,  there’d be no moments, no tears and no belly laughs!  And these are the things that couple’s often don’t always get to see on their own wedding day.  All of the fleeting moments that get caught on camera.  The moments they can ogle over once they get their final set of photographs.

We love documenting weddings where you’re almost too scared to put your camera down for a few minutes in case you miss something.  I often find myself smiling as I do the final selection for the blog, imagining the couple’s reaction when they see the images for the first time.  And it kind of gives me a little thrill knowing what an important part we’ve played in preserving these memories for them.

We first met Mandisa & Rod in a coffee shop a few weeks before their Roca Restaurant wedding.  With them being up in Joburg, a meeting was just not possible. Another thing that we’ve realized is the amount of trust couples put in us, booking without even meeting you face to face.  For that we are truly grateful.

Mandisa & Rod are such a perfect match.  They certainly bring out the best in each other.   What a wonderful union of two families and two cultures.  It really is humbling being in the presence of such amazing people.

Mandisa and Rod made the perfect choice in venue with their Roca Restaurant wedding.  You simply can’t go wrong.  You have an amazing planner who I might add manages to stay very calm in even the most stressful situations.  The venue is gorgeous, the views are to die for, and the food is amazing.  What more could you want on your special day?

Mandisa & Rod, thank you for putting your trust in us to document your wedding.  We hope we have done justice to one amazing day!
