Fantasy forest wedding
What a treat to be chosen to photograph Stefan & Roxy’s incredible Tsala Treetop Lodge wedding held at the stunning coastal town of Plettenberg Bay. This beautiful estate is one of my personal favourite Garden Route wedding venues and is situated deep in the famous Knysna forest.
The unique and intimate “Chapel in the Forest”, which can only seat up to 50 guests, is the perfect setting for exquisite wedding photos both inside and out. The chapel is floor to ceiling glass windows which overlook a sweeping valley of an age-old indigenous forest; a perfect backdrop for a couple to say their vows in front of, and a natural set-up for exquisite ceremony photos.
Stefan & Roxy are true followers of Christ and boy oh boy, did this show! Stefan had every eye in the chapel tearing up with his incredible heartfelt vows. It was such an amazing, intimate celebration of their coming together in the presence of God and with the linger of worship in one’s ears.
We followed this wonderful ceremony with a delight of diverse landscapes and background to take their couple photos in. From experience, I know that a Tsala Treetop Lodge Wedding always allows for great photography opportunities and exquisite golden hour sunset light. The guests were treated to a feast of snack and finger food before moving into the venue’s conservatory for the formal reception.
Stefan & Roxy’s stylish reception was beautifully planned to provide their guests with a unique experience. As the reception venue is a conservatory with glass windows on the walls and even on the ceiling, the venue is already draped in a beautiful natural feeling. Not much is needed in terms of décor. The couple opted for an earthy feeling with bare wooden tables and white flowers. Opulent surroundings and exquisite food surrounded by the natural forest is exactly what this beautiful couple were wanting for their perfect wedding day.
There were so many wonderful opportunities to capture the intimate chic style of this Tsala Treetop Lodge wedding, with all the elements working together I was lucky enough to capture the beauty of the surroundings and this wonderful couple who are so dedicated to their faith and who are so obviously in love. I thoroughly enjoy being chosen as their wedding photographer for their Plettenberg Bay wedding. To capture their unique moments in these breathtakingly unrivalled surroundings, was just a huge blessing.
