Die Woud Wedding
Peter & Chelsey’s Die Woud Wedding is one that will stand out for a long time to come. Not just because they are the most stunning, joyful, and funny couple. But also because of this beautiful venue, but more on that later.
After a long drive to Caledon, we got lost in finding the groom’s preparation venue. Needless to say, we took the scenic route. But wow, after that this quickly became one of my dream weddings. I’ve had a few laughs while shooting weddings over the years. And I’ve had bucket loads of fun. But when your cheeks are already hurting after the groom’s preparations, you know you are in for an epic day!
This vibrant, bubbly kind of peoples were referred to me by another favourite client, Cuan & Elré whose wedding I shot the previous year in the Garden Route. And when you get clients who trusts you completely and just let you do your job, magic happens. The weather was a bit off, sometimes freezing, sometimes windy. But everything just came together for an unforgettable wedding day.
After the ceremony, we used the opportunity to kindly ‘borrow’ a near by farmers blooming Canola field. I have shot in the vastness of a blooming Canola field before, but this was so special. The sun was just setting in the background behind the mountains and it was perfect. The wind was a bit hectic, but we braced it and it was worth it.
I loved their wedding cake with all the personal touches on it. A wonderfully funny dance floor followed with guests celebrating in full force. The day started off with belly laughs and it kept going until the end of the day!
The ceremony was held in a forest of Blackwattle trees, but it still made for a spectacular beautiful backdrop. So much so, we even took some photos in the forest! The reception venue is just out of this world with the glass ceiling and walls. An unbelievably magical feeling!
This is what Chelsey had to say regarding my services:
Christelle has seriously exceeded our expectations. Thank you for going above and beyond, you were so relaxed and friendly, making us feel comfortable especially since my now Husband does not enjoy taking photos. Christelle you have really brought out the inner model out of my husband. We will be recommending you to anyone and everyone as your photo’s are one of a kind. There are no words that truly express how honoured we were to have you capture our special day.
Thank you Christelle!
