Deidre & Philip are old family friends of ours. They tied the knot on the outskirts of Somerset West, surrounded by the ever embracing Stellenbosch mountains and pine forest. Their wedding was the first we’ve had the privilege of shooting and also one of the most relaxed weddings we’ve ever been to.
They’re the most laid back, happy, easy going couple and although Philip has an extreme dislike of having his picture taken, they were so easy and fun to photograph.
Deirdre’s childhood bedroom offered the perfect light pocket to document her getting ready, whilst the men were getting dressed and having fun in the cottage.
This perfect summers day, accompanied by a tasty spit braai, craft beer and loads of laughter was rounded off by a trip to the beach for a trash the dress shoot after which the nearest and dearest were invited to an awesome, relaxed party at their home to finish off the remainder of the beer.
Deidre and Phil, thank you for trusting us with your pictures! We had loads of fun spending the day with you guys!
