Drew + Brian

Drew is a romantic who loves fairy tales, unicorns, sunbeams and ponies! He is without a doubt one of the best hair stylists in Durban, if not South Africa, and he has a knack for making women look and feel beautiful! Drew takes his job very seriously, I remember years ago he had a perm done to himself as he wanted to know exactly what it felt like to have frizzy, out of control hair! The perm is now gone and these days he is sporting a pony tale of perfectly conditioned locks that would send most wig makers into a frenzy! When he is not combing hair you might find him climbing trees or cooking up a feast. Chances are he will be with Brian!

Since these two rather gorgeous young chaps got together they have been inseparable! As long as I have known Drew he has wanted to be in a relationship with his soul mate. Brian is a chiropractor who rides horses, is fiercely intelligent and very good looking. Brian grounds Drew and loves and respects him for all that he is. Brian is a healer with a kind heart and in Brian Drew found not only a soul mate but a husband!

They decided to get married at Old Mill Drift in Clarens which is a beautiful farm on a winding river surrounded by orange mountains. At Old Mill Drift you will find a small herd of wild ponies, forests glades, a bubbling spring and many other things that would fit into a fairy tale! They were meant to get married next to a stream under a canopy of trees with sparkling yellow leaves, but nature had other plans and it bucketed down just before the ceremony was meant to start and then promptly cleared up as the ceremony was moved indoors. Despite the sadness of plans gone awry the atmosphere was electric. In this case two grooms were most definitely better than one.

As you may have gathered I have known Drew for many years! Some might say we were siblings in a past life! There was no one other than me that was going to take these pics so I can’t say thanks for picking me. This one was written in the stars!

And now for a couple of words and the credits from the grooms ……

Thank you to all of our Tribe. You made such special time in our lives possible. You have Blessed us beyond measure and we are eternally grateful for your love and support. We Appreciate you so much.

    Jacki Bruniquel does it again…. I cannot tell you how happy we are to relive that day through your lens. It was such a whirlwind of a day so being able to slow it down and revisit it is priceless. So many people have been asking to see pictures of the wedding and my response has always been the same “the reallies are not published yet, we waiting on Jacki.” And there response is always the same…. “Jacki Bruniquel??? That girl so so talented”
    Well now the realies have been released we have got photos to show keep the memories alive forever. Quite honestly, the most wonderful moment of my life was marrying My soul mate.

    The pics made me all enotional, they are so touching, honest and captured the moments perfectly. (It can’t hurt that the two grooms are gorgeous – just saying…) Jacki is brilliant. So grateful to have seen these, almost feels like I was there. So much love all over them. Just magnificent. Well, well done all round.
