Vineyard Hotel Wedding – Shelley + Richard

There are a few things that spring to mind when I think back to Shelley and Richards wedding

No 1. Liz and I were both sick with flu.

No 2. Cape Town is ridiculously fabulous even if you have flu.

No 3. Richard and his groomsmen were so hilarious that we forgot we had flu.

No 4. Cutest kids ever at this wedding!

No 5. They had a caricature artist to entertain the guest which was most fun.

No 6. They got married at the Vineyard Hotel in Newlands and it didn’t rain despite weather predications

No 7. The Bride is as sweet as pie!

No 8. The bridal party like to “dab” – I had to ask my younger assistant what that was all about. I had no idea what dabbing is! Now I know!

No 9. There was so much love.

No 10. These folk know how to party!!!!!

Shelley and Richard thanks so much for picking me to photograph your special day. It really was such a pleasure to meet you all. I really do get the best clients and I am so very grateful!!!! Wishing you all the best for your new adventure together as husband and wife.

    Absolutely awesome work! All the pictures have captured the depth and emotion (and mad dance moves!) of our special day. Jacki and Liz, you guys are amazing and we are so happy to have found you. Thanks for sharing the day with us 🙂

    These pics are insane! Beautiful portraits but wow the fly on the wall stuff is brilliant! You have such a knack with photographing people when they are unaware to tell wonderful stories but you also have the ability to make everyone look fabulous! If I were going to get married again – You would be my number one choice!!
