Stellenbosch Wedding Hidden Valley
Ilze & Eric
This Stellenbosch wedding at Hidden Valley was so much fun to photograph! When you have a bride and groom as chilled as Ilze & Eric, work is not a job. If I could sum these two up in a few words, it would be energetic, fun and no fuss! Throw in super efficient co-ordination by the talented Belinda from BellaBliss Events, and you have the perfect recipe for a great wedding!
What a pleasure photographing a bride who was not worried about a dress getting dirty, or wearing shoes that are so uncomfortable that they make her miserable. No fussing about hair getting messed up in the wind. And a couple who are full of smiles and love for each other. We often get told that our photographs have loads of happy people in them, but I don’t think people realize what a HUGE part the couple play in making these images. Happy fun people make happy fun photos! And this makes happy photographers #justsayingIlze, originally from South Africa went over to work in Germany and ended up meeting the love of her life on a mountain hiking adventure. Check out the gorgeous cake that depicts the story.
Ilze and Eric’s Stellenbosch wedding was a real destination affair with friends and family travelling from all over. What a perfect setting and sunny summer weather to show off the beautiful Cape Winelands.
The ceremony took place on the lawn next to the lake. Afterwards guests enjoyed canapes out on the deck before entering the reception venu. The reception was fun and festive with great entertainment provided first by Gerry Liberty and then the DJ.
Thank you Ilze and Eric for trusting us to capture the memories of your gorgeous Stellenbosch wedding without even meeting us until your wedding day. Wishing you many more adventures together!
