Our love still runs deep for Joburg, and every couple of months we get to go up, see all our favourite Jozi people and shoot a wedding.
For our own wedding all we wanted was a ceremony on a beautiful summer’s day, under a big tree, sharing good food and wine with our best friends… and Calvin and Lindy’s wedding reminded us of just that.
It’s an Argentinian superstition that if you stick a knife in the ground on your wedding day it will ward off the stormy clouds. Heather and Carlo stuck two knives in the ground but the rain still came! It came down in bucket loads the whole afternoon up until the exact moment when Heather was supposed to walk down the aisle. The cars were ready to take the bridal party up to the farmhouse but the original plan had been to walk there. I’ll never forget Heather saying “Stuff it! I’m walking”… and we walked! Up the muddy road, with the sun streaming into the valley and a perfect rainbow behind us. It wasn’t what they had planned but it was no less special. Family and friends huddled on a farm house stoep witnessing a beautiful union.
The rest of the evening unfolded beautifully. Laurentinas, Cacti, Open fields and Zulu dancing!
Watch their wedding story below (turn on HD to see the pictures at their best), and their photo booth video at the end. It’s probably the funniest photo booth we’ve done this year! I can’t help laughing every time I watch it!
A couple of weeks ago was the wedding of our friends Derryn & Terence of Orpen Films. We made them a custom gold photo booth and probably set a new record for the amount of photos taken! It was an awesome night and we were literally the last people there with the bride and groom. What a fun night guys! (Look out for the wedding photos coming soon!)
We love doing photo booths. We’ve done a few at parties, and a lot at weddings and they’re different and wonderful every time. It’s the time when guests really get to let loose before the dance floor opens, even the grannies & grandpa’s really get into it.
Here’s one from Deb & Mike’s wedding – what a great night! Watch out for their full wedding post, it’s coming soon!
