Diedeliff & Collin

We took the long way round… it was worth it.

Come a little bit closer
Hear what I have to say
Just like children sleeping
We could dream this night away

But there's a full moon rising
Let's go dancing in the light
We know where the music's playing
Let's go out and feel the night”

-Neil Young - Harvest Moon

Diedeliff & Collin, I wish you all the best in your future together, with many more adventures filled with love and endless laughter. Thank you for sharing this small part of your lives with us.

Cheers to little spoons!

Ian & Carrie - Cape Town - Blanche B Photography

It was a cold, misty and windy Sunday afternoon in Cape Town (where both Ian and Carrie have made their home) and we set off to find the best view…

Missing the view of Table mountain completely, as mother nature waits for no one, we settled for wet shoes, wet hair (yes Carrie got her hair done that morning) laughs, mountain running poses and cuddles instead. Which we did not complain about.

May your future be filled with adventures, dry hair, love and laughter. We might get that mountain view next time I’m sure. Looking forward to share your big day with you soon.

Much love

Blanche

P.S. Nature looks good on you. :-)

Karl & Elizca - The One - Caledon

Karl & Elizca

It was a rainy Saturday in April…

They say it’s good luck when it rains on your wedding day. As a total romantic and optimist I totally believe thats true. So this is how it went down…

The rain seemed to bring out the greenery and painted the valley that surrounds The One with misty hues of grey and green. What an amazing setting. Inside this beautifully designed venue were the team busy bringing the magic and set the stage for the festivities to take place that evening. And how festive and inviting it was!

Umbrella n hand we made our rounds to see how Elizca and Karl were doing. The weather surely did not influence their excitement and final choice to get married in the forest non the less.

Their ceremony was emotional, beautiful and I felt so grateful to be a part of their amazing day. (I get teary every time I look at these…)

Blessed with a shower of colorful flowers and leaves we set off to capture their alone time before the celebrations. We headed up the mountain (as I tend to do on weddings) with the hope to catch a glimpse of the sun that has not shown her face at all that day.

With both myself and the videographer team (secondlukefilms) making peace with cloudy rainy weather we bounced around with Karl & Elizca who were happy to climb on rocks with high heels. (#nailedit)

Then, all of a sudden, the sun in all her glory decided to kiss Karl and Elizca right on the face! BOOM!! I still cannot explain this moment. But perhaps a snippet of their favourite song can… It all came together perfectly.

Oh, Saturday Sun - Vance Joy

Oh, Saturday Sun
I met someone
Out on the West Coast
I gotta get back, I can't let this go
Oh, Saturday Sun
I met someone
Don't care what it costs
No ray of sunlight's ever lost
Ever lost

And still the memory's right there
She put the breeze in my hair
No kiss was softer, softer than this
I'm readin' her lips, oh
Each line I read
She left her books in my bed
And her song in my head
I've been undone

I wish you all the rays of sunlight and love in your future together as husband and wife. You are super special.

Love

Blanche B

Jonathan & Lee-Ann - Be together and in Nature

Jonathan and Lee-Ann have grown very close to my heart and I have been ordered (in a friendly and loving manner) to invite them for a braai on heritage day. - Feeling Special

Lee-Ann has a way of putting together something totally awesome and doing most of it on her own (as some girls like to do) and with the patience and support of, her now, husband their day was a raging success.

Family and friends jumped in to help with wedding preparations early on the day of their wedding. Some carried , some placed and some poured water while others were scouting and getting the carpets ready for the ceremony.

Lee-Ann and Jonathan were busy getting everything ready till the last minute before they had to get dressed. (As brides and grooms need to for their wedding day)

They quickly jumped into their wedding attire, Lee-Ann with her white sneakers, flowers in her hair and chicken fillets (inside joke) and Jonathan getting all foxy with printed socks and his favorite hat..

There they went. Cool as two cucumbers.

Their ceremony was set under picturesque oak trees with all the guests spread out on Persian carpets waiting for Lee-Ann to arrive..

And she did. Filled with giggles.

It was a ceremony filled with brightly dressed and smiling family and friends. I was close to chilling on the carpets myself after getting invited to do so a few times with a wave and a smile.

Their day started at a beach hotel with an amazing view, made its rounds through the mountains, peaked under a oak tree and ended off on a rocky bay.

A bit like married life I suppose, with all its different aspects and landscapes and waves and rocks and sand. All to be enjoyed. Together.

Be blessed dear friends. Thank you for the part you played in my life. Positive vibes all the way.

Much Love

Adam & Marie - Intimate Home Engagement

Adam and Marie did not only get engaged, but they are also taking on a new and exiting venture and moving to the UK.

So before they pack up their home we decided to do an intimate shoot in their first home together as an engaged couple.

We started off with a bang where the two of them tried to squeeze into their corridor for a kiss. It started off wobbly but as soon as I thought they got the hang of this and should perhaps become professional contortionists Adam muttered shyly “Babe I think your toe might have just entered my body”.

We all sat together laughing in this petite corridor for more than just a minute. Ice breaker!

Adam’s comment gave me a little glimpse of what their relationship is like. Happy and full of jokes is what I gathered and this especially makes me smile. I strongly believe a couple than can laugh together uncontrollably will definitely have the best adventure and relationship for many years to come.

Thank you guys for sharing your love for one another with me. And I certainly look forward to capture the beginning of your adventure as husband a wife together.

Keep it real and see you soon.

Love

B

Duif & Jeanne-Lett - Beach Shenanigans

Jeanne-Lett & Duif , what can I say about these two... (dis nou waar ek vir myself klink soos hoofmeisie wat n speach moet gee)

...ek is van die opinie dat die twee nooit ophou opwinding sal he in hul verhouding nie. They had me in stiches more than a few times during their engagement shoot.

"Duif, pick her up and swing her ever so slightly"...
ended up with Jeanne-Lett in a headlock and Duif moving around in a lazy "mosh pit" like swing while his wife to be turned as stiff as an ironing board trying to keep her laughter at bay. 
- At this stage I was flat on the floor with tears streaming down my face.

I look forward to share your wedding day with you. And thank you for sharing your happiness.

JULLE IS RIDICULOUS! Ek love dit. 😂🤣😂

Jonathan & Lee-Ann (Jakkals en Wolf)

Being out of ones comfort zone builds character. Well that is what I believe.

I met with Lee-Ann once previously and I was very pleased with the fact that we think alike. That means a lot when planning a shoot, and with Lee-Ann being a photographer herself, she was keen to make a day of it and explore a bit.

We set off one Sunday morning and when a day begins with a road trip it can only be good. Kitted with an epic chair, my living room carpet, wine and my hubby by my side we went to meet Lee-Ann and Jonathan for their engagement shoot.

What an amazing adventurous and overall happy and positive couple! And they love wine. BONUS!

The sun was still high but I decided to go for it anyway. Below is the end product after picking roadside bossies, walking barefoot on not so comfortable beach pebbles, lugging a chair around (thank you my partner in crime) and having wine whenever we needed to take a breather. (which was just the right amount if you ask me)

Looking forward to share your wedding day with you guys! Thank you for being so epic!!
