Trash-the-Dress / Wayne & Kirst

Some Trash-the-Dress lovin’

To be honest, I haven’t done many of these.  Why not you may ask!  I have no clue.  The are the BEST fun.  After the tension and high energy vibe of the wedding day, the t-the-d is such a brilliant “bring-things-down-to-earth” or soak the daylights out of them, kind of shoot.

Needless to say Kirst and Wayne embraced the trash-the-dress shoot for all it was worth.  The dress (which I’m relieved to say wasn’t really her wedding dress) was pretty trashed, well jolly dirty anyway.  Wayne , clearly a bum man, managed to cop a feel  on every single shoot  (note E-shoot and wedding day).  The fabricator (aka fascinator – and if you don’t know what it is, thats your problem) was also the subject of much humour.  Even Ruby, my Bull Mastiff princess, got in on some of the shots.  Think she was really a tad nervous that Wayne (or Kirst) was drowning especially with the lifting-up-in-the-air with copious amounts of water deluging in the face shots.

In fine form, the day ended with a yummy bottle of bubbles after huge amounts of mirth.

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.
