We are falling in love with this city again and again.
We’ve just moved into the city bowl and we have to admit we love waking up under the mountain! It really does have some sort of magical quality about it!
It was such a treat shooting a proper Cape Town City Wedding in winter earlier this year. There were so many incredible elements to the day.
Firstly Robyn and Gareth got married in one the oldest churches in Cape Town, the Metropolitan Methodist Church on Greenmarket square (built in 1876). It’s a beautiful, old, gothic church with stonework and spires that almost seems out of place in the bustling square of pop up vendors selling Nick-nacks and sweets in Greenmarket square.
I just loved the contrast of old and new, black tie and street vendor. It was a visual feast to capture.
After they made it official, and the contract was sealed with a kiss, Robyn & Gareth led the procession from the church to the reception venue with a trail of giant balloons bouncing above the guest’s heads.
It was such a beautiful and whimsical sight to see the long line of guests walking through the city, dressed to the nines with the winter light streaming through.
It was just a short walk down St Georges mall to the Cape Town Club (a gentlemen’s dining club formed in 1894).
As soon as you enter you the ‘Club’ you feel like you’ve entered an entirely different place and time, and with all the guests dressed in black tie and red lips, nobody seemed out of place.
The evening was a wonderful celebration of feasting and dancing, with a few surprise elements like a gentlemen’s only whisky and cigar bar, and an underground bar that turned into an after hours club, just for the guests.
