Where do I start with this one? Tracey, originally from Cape Town and now living in the Cotswolds with Alexis, very kindly asked if I’d be willing to fly over to South Africa for their destination wedding. Obviously not a hard one for me to answer! The main question that sprung to my head was please be a date that i’m free and luckily for me I was 🙂
When Tracey and Alexis sent me a link to the Monkey Valley Resort an immediate smile spread across my face. Set in a beautiful forest, it has a rustic-chic feel with an unrivalled view of Noordhoek beach and nature reserve.
The day after I arrived I was invited to a pre-wedding South African style braii, a bbq on steroids basically! My initial observations were that there is a distinct hierarchy and certain people have their roles to play to create a spectacular evening. Basically the hospitality was immense. and rather than being the wedding photographer I quite literally felt like a member of the family! I won’t bother mentioning the wedding day as it was just a pleasure to capture and so nice to reminisce whilst editing it. Don’t take my word for it just have a little look below. A big thank you to Andrew Morgan, a wedding photographer from Cape Town, for helping me on the day. I was fortunate enough to have a few days either side for a holiday and to see the draw dropping Cape Town scenery and did I mention a post wedding braii 🙂 A big thank you once again to Tracey and Alexis for putting your trust in me to come over and capture your amazing wedding day.
