Fernando & Suzaan,
One of the most naturally beautiful weddings I have photographed in the Garden Route is that of Fernando and Suzaan. The couple, both from Port Elizabeth, have been together for a couple of years and were planning their wedding together from afar in the months leading up to it. They decided on a December 2016, Zinzi Restaurant wedding in Plettenberg Bay.
Suzaan looked incredible with her stunning make up done by local make up & hair stylist, Wilna Allpass. She was the picture of happiness and positivity and incredible beauty on her wedding day with her strong, adoring groom Fernando by her side. This is clearly evident in the photographs of this beautiful relationship of an easy-going and loving couple.
Fernando and Suzaan chose Plettenberg Bay, South Africa as their wedding destination even though neither of them had ever visited it before. It was on their list of places to travel too and they felt drawn to a small wedding with family and a few friends under the African sun. Logistically it also made the most sense as it was in the middle in between Cape Town (where they reside now) and Port Elizabeth (where most of their family still lives).
The couple both had a much laid back approach to their wedding plans and decided that the planning process of their Zinzi Restaurant wedding had to be fun rather than stressful. They never saw the venue beforehand, and planned everything with local Wedding Co-ordinator, Confeti Event Management. As it turned out, the owner of Confeti was actually one of my previous clients! (small world hey?) From past experience, I knew that a Zinzi Restaurant Wedding will deliver in terms of backdrops for beautiful wedding photos. The venue was a perfect choice for them and even though it rained, the venue made for incredible stunning images – both outside on the grounds and inside the venue.
I was incredibly honoured to be chosen as their Zinzi Restaurant wedding photographer and really feel that I managed to capture the poignancy and intimate love of this wedding, creating beautiful lasting memories of Fernando and Suzaan.
