Lourens & Karen,
After booking me online, I spoke to Karen once on the phone for what was supposed to be a quick chat – it ended up being a ‘not so quick chat’ as we spoke about kids and life and everything else! The couple opted for a Cape wedding at the gorgeous 5 star hotel, The Twelve Apostles hotel and spa. The hotel is situated in a private game reserve that overlooks the mountains on the one side and the ocean on the other, you don’t really get better than that!
About the Cape wedding venue, The Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa
“I’ve always loved the 12 Apostles, who doesn’t? It’s classy, it’s breathtakingly beautiful, the food is exquisite. What appealed to us also was the maximum capacity, we didn’t want a massive wedding.
We were beyond happy with the venue. Everything, everything, everything was perfect. The staff are INCREDIBLE. Stephanie and her team are amazing. The food was exceptional. The care and personal touches are something that stay with you long after the day is gone.
My favourite thing, besides getting married of course, was that I loved having my best friends in the room with me. I loved the organised chaos it became, it had an intimacy that I enjoy. I loved how peaceful everything is and how I never once panicked about anything as the staff had everything under control. It was such a well organised event.”
The couple incorporated their two beautiful little girls into all the different aspects of their wedding day which resulted in one of the cutest moments ever when their little girl came up to them just after they were announced as husband and wife – they shared a ‘family first kiss’. So incredibly sweet and precious!
What they say about my wedding photography services:
“My sister-in-law spoke about how amazing Christelle’s pictures are and I sent her an enquiry. From the first telephone call with Christelle, I knew we had been lucky enough to get the perfect photophrapher. She is kind, understanding and incredibly patient both before and especially on the day. She has a wonderful way and I am so happy she was there for a calm head when it was needed at times.
When the photos came through, I couldn’t stop smiling through my tears. She captured the whole day in pictures the way I felt in my heart. I was overwhelmed by their beauty and artistry. She is gifted in all these ways I have mentioned. She will always be special to us because of the memories captured for us.”
