KZN Midlands Country-style Wedding | Leon & Terri

It has been a long while since I blogged any shoots !  This colorful and happy wedding inspired me once again.  It also reminded me of these words by Kahlil Gibran ~

“The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain. Is not the cup that holds your wine the very cup that was burned in the potter’s oven? And is not the lute that soothes your spirit, the very wood that was hollowed with knives? When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy. When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see in truth that you are weeping for that which has been your delight.”

Saturday, 8th April 2017 was a very special day for these two wonderful people.  Leon Gryvie, our local GP and Terri, a beautiful and wild lass from the Eastern Cape.

A sunny day filled with joy, smiles, laughter, jokes, good company, good food and so much love…..even the Midlands weather played the game.

Congratulations Terri & Leon – here’s wishing you guys so much happiness, companionship and peace in the years to follow.  Thank you too, for giving me the opportunity to capture your wedding day xxxxx

Take a look at these gorgeous happy pix for an idea of what it means to have a real KZN Midlands Country-style Wedding!!!

Weddings | Intaba View, Drummond | Paddy & Megan – Part 1


One thing about moving to a new Province and being a wedding photographer;  just about every location is unchartered territory.

Megan and Paddy decided to hold their wedding at Intaba View.   Located right in the Valley of a Thousand Hills – the Kingdom of the Zulu.   The area is named for the thousands of hills which tumble down to the almighty Umgeni River.   Flowing from the Drakensberg mountains into the Indian Ocean.  Needless to say,  the views are amazing.

The couple decided to have their ceremony and reception at one place and wanted it as close as possible to Hillcrest, making it more accessible for family and friends.

Megan’s colour scheme was an incredibly vibrant blue, purple and green.  Her sister, Candice, bridesmaids,  family & friends all helped with the decor and little touches.  The end result was a wonderful country-styled wedding.

The bridal party all got ready at Mulberry Guesthouse  (stunning little gem nestled in a hillside on a 22 hectare wildlife farm).

Rain was predicted for the day but thankfully held off until much much later.  Hence the gorgeous wellies and brollies we had to play with.
