Murimisi and Nontobeko decided to tie the knot at Tzaneen Country Lodge where their ceremony and reception took place under the shady trees next to the river.

The temperature where a shocking 32 degrees 08:00 in the morning when we arrived at Tzaneen Country Lodge… The reception area of the wedding – where decorated in pink, white and silver and immediately the heat was forgotten and the wedding vibe got the best of us…

Nontobeko a soft voiced girl with a heart of gold welcomed me at her room where her mother, bridesmaids and she got dressed for her dream wedding. Hair where styled, detail images taken and the day quickly rise to be one of the most fun filled weddings I have been to. Murimisi a man whose eyes are filled with adoration for his bride… where getting dressed in a nearby room. His groomsmen were with him every step of the day. They left to greet the guests while our bride were busy transforming into a princess. She arrived at the ceremony with a boat from the other side of the river and joyfully greeted her father who walked her down the aisle. An inspiring message from the pastor followed by the legal unity of husband and wife. And at long last… “you can kiss the bride” and boy did he do it!

While the first food where served, we took family portraits and the newly weds hurried to the helicopter to fly over the river and to grooms house to dress into their reception attire. I was anxious to let them go as I wanted to have some couple images of them in their wedding clothes, so we fitted in a few shots… But to my surprise they looked even better when they returned!

After lunch and some great dances from the guests the wedding couple where escorted to the stage by the band and drum majorettes. The speeches were delivered and the guests entertained by the youth dancers. What a wedding, what a couple and definitely – what a great day this was! Enjoy the images and thank you for choosing us as your wedding photographers!
