Gowrie Farm Midlands Wedding – Jaclyn + Richard

Jaclyn is the sister of my good friend Drew Christie. If you have followed my blog, you will know that Drew and I often work together. You will also know that I think he is the best darn hair stylist in Durban, if not the world! But this post is not about Drew and his skills. This post is about Jaclyn and Richard’s big day, which was held at the Gowrie Golf Club up in Nottingham Road on a perfect Autumn day.

Jacs and Richard are no fuss type of people, and so they didn’t sweat the small stuff that couples so often get bogged down with when it comes to weddings! Their wedding was about their commitment to each other and sharing the joy with their closest humans. I just loved listening to all of the speeches and hearing just how much their friends and family adore them. They wanted their day to be relaxed and lots of fun, and fun it was! We knew it was a good night when Sheugnet started doing ballet and Liz started head banging!

Jacs and Richard thanks so much for picking me and making us feel like part of the family, it really was such a pleasure to be part of your big day! Huge thanks to Drew, Liz, Dee and Bex for help with the wow shot! I owe you one for lying around in the cold grass! I think it was worth it in the end!
