I had to start this web post with that photo.  Elmarie is the most beautiful woman of faith and it was just inspiring to see her on her wedding day.  Philip and Elmari got married in a small chapel on Kaleo farm in Ceres.  As the chapel was a small one, I was trapped at the front and felt so close to them as they exchanged vows.  The ceremony and the way they enjoyed every minute was wonderful to witness and I will never forget it.  After the vows the minister asked their parents to bless the day with them and the resulting photo is one of my all time favourites.  It was a truly beautiful and inspirational ceremony.

It was our first visit to Kaleo in Ceres and what a lovely venue, perfect for a winter wedding!  The drive up from Cape Town provided some spectacular scenery and they were blessed with the most beautiful winters day.  The whole day was such a family affair with all of the little cousins playing a part.  The kiddies wanted to be a part of everything, from the romantic shoot to their first dance and they added so much to the wedding.  It was so refreshing to see how Philip and Elmari handled the little ones as children are often excluded from wedding days. 

Philip and Elmari are two very special people and know you will do great things together.  Thank you for inviting us to share in your wonderful, wonderful day.  It will not be soon forgotten.
