Despite being coming from different worlds, Christian and Bianca still met, they still fell in love and on 6 October 2018, they declared their enteral bond before friends and family.

Continents shifted and became one as Christian was born and raised in Heidelburg ,Germany and Bianca from Gauteng, South Africa pledged to love each other until their last breath.

The day Christian first saw Bianca, his gaze locked steadily and he already knew that this was the woman he will love for the rest of his life. He had travelled all over the world, but had never seen such captivating beauty.

“She was the most beautiful women I have ever seen,” Christian told us.

The wedding took place at an incomprehensibly breathtaking venue just Witrivier in Mpumalanga. Vast landscapes and rolling koppies enshrouded by lush bushveld tranquility.

The newlyweds chose the Aveli Farm Lodge as their venue to say their ‘I dos’. Managed by Lizet, a real mensch who ensured that the wedding would be unforgettable and without incident.

The venue offers unforgettable scenery, delectably delicious food and a cozy atmosphere that allowed for the formation of unforgettable memories.

It was an emotive day for all involved as two families, from different cultures and countries shared together in the love of Christian and Bianca. Miles apart, both families became one under the African sun.

Barclay Studios enjoyed the South African hospitality coupled with the humour of the Germans who freely imparted stories, laughter and song.

Seeing love win at all costs is a rare sight, but we were able to not only be there, but immortalise such a feat.

We thank Christian and Bianca for the opportunity to capture the first and next chapter in their life book.

The day was promising to be the perfect day for a family celebration. Not a cloud in the sky, an amazing wedding venue, an established wedding planner, a thoughtful decorator, everything was perfect, especially when the couple came into the picture. The perfect day for the two in-loves to become one family and for two families to become in-laws.

Here, we were privileged to meet the sweetest couple, Jamie and Cameron. Their wedding was celebrated at The Conservatory in Franschhoek, Western Cape, South Africa, nestled on the banks of the Kastaiing River, surrounded by towering mountains, top quality vineyards and massive oak trees.

Weddings can be stressful but, it seemed like a stress-free occasion with Nu from Nu Experiences, a wedding planner from Cape Town, coordinating this wedding. Everything ran seamlessly from top to toe and was well supported by the delightful array of flowers and perfectly selected décor arranged by San Marie from Creative Nook and the use of crockery and cutlery provided by Two Birds, all working together to set the atmosphere for a delightful wedding.

With friends, family and event coordinators arriving from all over South Africa to meet at the same venue on a wine farm required much planning and organization, but Cameron had some of his family and best friends around to support and celebrate with him. It was obvious that he felt like a king for the day. Jamie was surrounded by family and the closest of friends helping her get everything ready for the moment of her arrival… A jewel ready to be set in a crown… She was glowing.

With friends and family from all over coming to celebrate with Jamie and Cameron, their personalities filled the atmosphere creating a theme of joy laughter and floral delight throughout their ceremony, photo-shoot, and reception. The photos catch this theme with the natural smiles and laughter caught by the photographer at every turn.

This was an elegant, sweet, playful wedding set in the most amazing backdrop.

Congratulation to Mr & Mrs Cameron & Jamie Cleaver.

Being surrounded by hundreds of kilometres of open space stirs the senses and liberates the soul, offering our busy minds a place of rest and tranquillity. Just imagine a wedding set in these endless horizons far from the big cities and rushing traffic. This here is a hidden treasure in plain sight. A place of beauty in the vast open spaces of the peaceful Southern Namibian Bushveld.

Although the venue was set in the dry Bushveld, seemingly in the middle of nowhere, it was to be a day of luxurious elegance, splendour. A family celebration in the heart of Southern Namibia.

The venue and proceedings were being prepared by none other than Africa Safari Lodge.
The makeup for Irisa was to be created by the amazing Eva Toth from Evasion Art, and Irisa’s eyebrows and lashes were to being done by Chanelle Heyneke Makeup.

Michel had family and some of his best friends around him to prepare him to be a champion of this amazing day while Irisa was gleaming under the hands-on care of make-up experts, her closest friends, and of amazing course family. What a way to prepare for the greatest day in one’s life.

The stage was set, a beautiful sunny day, this event belonged to them. Friends, family and coordinators were all there to celebrate the coming together of two amazing people. It was finally happening, the joining of hearts, the joining of families the wedding of Michel and Irisa.

From beginning to end this wedding celebration was a day of elegance, beauty, sophistication and flair and a day of enjoyment for all those who attended. The flowers, the guests, the music and the expectation, painted an unbelievable picture in the middle of this wide open space in stark contrast to the harsh bushveld they were surrounded by.

The photographer was able to capture this unbelievable contrast in their photo of the Bride and Groom in their elegance against the open savannah background featuring a lone rhino grazing.

Our best wishes and congratulations go to Mr & Mrs Michel and Irisa De Klerk.

With a feeling of being suspended over the suburb of Fresnay, Cape Town, South Africa, and with a 180-degree display of the ocean’s endless majesty, the epitome of luxury and opulence stand. The amazing villa, come reception venue called 50 Moondance. This unique holiday villa owned by Paul Berman and the Berman Brothers was the venue for our next couple’s wedding, a choice above the rest so to speak. This was going to be the unforgettable wedding of Dominque and Graham.

With the sound of the ocean in the distance and the slightly salty mist in the air, a team of dedicated craftsmen came together to make this an event of a lifetime, especially for Dominque and Graham

Anna Guardiascone, of Anna Marcelle Weddings, was the coordinator ensuring the smooth running of this well thought out event. Her wedding planning company has planned their way into weddings throughout the Cape and even into Europe. A bespoke wedding planner of top reputation.

Heike Hayward of Fleur Le Cordeur was approached to bring the venue to life with what only they can do… Floral decorations of the top tier, ready to wow the venue and all the guests who were about to arrive.

Of course no event would leave one satisfied without a caterer like Zest Catering from Botrivier, tantalizing the senses and nourishing the body with Primal Eatery coming alongside to provide refreshments and a not often seen Champagne Fountain to draw the eyes to this sparkling occasion.
One of the highlights of most weddings is of course, the cake. For this Dominique contracted none other than Lionheart Studios the buttercream and ganache specialists to handcraft a mouthwatering masterpiece, like only they can.

With everything perfectly prepared and in place, everyone was now waiting for the bride, Dominique to arrive. Enter, the woman of the day, dressed by Kobus Dippenaar in the Anna Georgina Bridal Range, with hair and make-up created by Rene de Witt and Fiona Waddel from Gorgeous 2 Go. Friends, family and coordinators felt their hearts leap as the Bride and Groom’s eyes met, hearts were joining, the long awaited day had come, two hearts becoming one.

Our CONGRATULATIONS to Dominque and Graham
