So…..Sam & George hail from Hotazel. To be honest I had never heard of the place. Ignorant I know.
The icon of sweltering South African weather is the little village of Hotazel in the Northern Cape.
Ironically enough, Hotazel is not the hottest place in the country. Weather charts for the area register 37 degrees Celsius on the top end of the scale – and a chilly 3 degrees Celsius at the bottom. Hotazel lies deep in the Kalahari, which in itself is a San/Bushman derivative word of ‘Kgalagadi’, meaning ‘the waterless place’.
Well, on the big day – rain was predicted but luckily for the couple (and the photographer), the rain held off! The day was quite warm and the Autumn colours were astounding. The couple shoot was relaxed and when the crazy bridal party joined in, it got a little more, well, crazy!!!
