Jean & Bianca tied the knot on the 14th of December 2013 at La Wiida Lodge close to Hartbeespoort. What a way to end the year! Stoker Studio had the privilege to photograph amazing people and beautiful weddings in 2013. The wedding of Jean and Bianca was the perfect ending to the year. It was packed with emotion, a beautiful reception area and an open air wedding ceremony.

I like the description La Wiida have of their venue:

Your wedding day is one of the joyous and most memorable days of your life and there could be no better place to start your new life together than at La’WiiDA Lodge. The perfect blend of bushveld terrain with its romantic ambience, memorable service, well-trained staff and outstanding food, make La’WiiDA Lodge & Conference Centre one of the most sought after wedding venues in Gauteng.

And this was true for the wedding of Jean and Bianca. The food was outstanding, the staff helpful and the setting breathtaking. Bianca fought the tears of joy while getting ready. Small gestures and friendly faces kept appearing and soon her make-up had to be done again :-) Jean was excited and could not wait to see his bride. They send one another gifts before the ceremony, which were a special gesture of love.

The ride on the back of a safari truck was nerve wrecking and fun! As we did a 4×4 course with Bianca screaming with joy. Thank you La Wiida for being a superb wedding venue.
