One of my favorite things about being a wedding photographer is that we often get to travel to places that I have never been to. Shooting in new places gets me very excited, especially when assignments involve farm weddings, family homes and pretty red heads!
Camilla and Don got married on Camilla’s family farm in Malelane in Mpumalanga which is somewhere near Nelspruit in North Eastern South Africa. I have always loved the personal touches and sense of community that seems to go hand in hand with farm weddings, and it seemed that just about everyone in the Malelane community was involved in their wedding in some way or another.
There were so many memorable moments to their big day ….. like the little flower girl and page boy who stole the show during the ceremony, the most delicious wedding cake that I have ever tasted, driving through the dusty red farm roads at top speed to chase the light and the incredible sunset! I could go on with so many more anecdotes but I speak better in pictures!
Thanks so much Camil and Don for picking me and thanks to you and all of your family for taking us into your home and lives like old friends! We so enjoyed our time with you all!!
