Luan & Berli, Pepper Tree Wedding

Dit was nog altyd jy.

Luan and Berli tied the Knott in one of my favorite wedding venues in Bloemfontein, Pepper Tree. What a gorgeous wedding venue, I love the modern edge it has to offer. Don’t get me started on the lovely bridal suite. It was a joyful yellow love celebration with all of their closes friends and family there. Luan and Berli are highschool sweethearts from De Aar. It is always a treat to meet people from that area. The decor and color theme suited perfectly with the couple’s bold vibrant personalities. Berli is a very stylish and creative person, just appreciate the yellow napkins she made it herself. Luan and his men were so fun and a treat to share the morning with. From the start till the end of the day this was a glorious celebration of two beautiful soals becoming one.

“Julle twee is “stunning en het so ‘n cool vibe”

I love this wedding, and I love to share it!

Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Love,
Anneke

Eben & Dore, Pepper Tree Wedding

“The purpose of this glorious life is not simply to endure it, but to soar, stumble, and flourish as you learn to fall in love with existence. We were born to live, my dear, not to merely exist.”

Van dag een wat ek met Dore en Eben gepraat het, het ek geweet die troue gaan WOW wees. Ek love julle styl, persoonlikheid en julle “vibe”. Partykeer ontmoet ek ‘n paartjie en dit voel vir my ons is eintlik ou vriende. Dis hoe ek oor julle voel. Dankie vir die groot voorreg om julle storie te kan vertel.

Dit was vir my heelik! Liefde, Anneke

Charl & Liana

No measure of time with you will be long enough but let start with forever.

Charl & Liana got married on their family farm in the Memel area, I think it is the most amazing location. The amount of effort and detailed planning of their wedding amazed me, everything was perfect.
It makes me excited to meet people that are true and kind and after the day makes you feel like you have been with family… And I experienced that with you guys. Charl & Liana thank you for trusting me as your wedding photographer!
Love,
Anneke

Anton & Colene

“I would love to say that you make me weak in the knees but to be quite upfront and completely truthful you make my body forget it has knees at all.” ― Tyler Knott Gregson.

Anton and Colene got married at the beautiful Welgelegen Cherry Estate. The week prior to the wedding were ice cold, and if you know the Eastern Free state this is no surprise. But on the day of the wedding, the weather was just perfect… and so were the decor, the wedding dress, the vibe, and all the other things… I just love everything about this wedding. But what really stands out for me is the love and support this couple have from there families and friends… it is a beautiful thing to witness.

Janus & Monique

JOYFUL. GENUINE. IMITATE. ALIVE.

Janus and Monique are just one of the coolest couples, they made us feel welcome and like friends from the moment we met.

Janus and Monique both grew up in a small town. (maybe that was our instant connection) They seemed to have met when they were still babies or a toddler and a baby :), but only really got to know each other later in life. The two long distance for a bite, while Monique completed her degree in Potchefstroom.  Got engaged and finally tied the Knott.  I love it when I met a couple who just have this longing to do life together. I pray that you always protect this longing for each other, and fall even more in love with each other!

Thank you for trusting us to capture these memories for you. I hope you love the photos as much as we did taking them for you.

Much Love,

Francois & Anneke

Rian & Carlé, Pepermossie Wedding

“Jou denke sal myne omhels
jou begin sal my begin wees
jou einde my einde” -Antjie Krog

Rian & Carle, trou die 19 Mei 2018. Daar is so baie dele van julle troue wat ons almal se harte geroer het…en vir die meer emosionele se oë vol trane laat opdam het. Wat vir my die mooiste was is die  “Wedding vows” aan mekaar. Ek deel so ‘n klein deeltjie:

“T.T Cloete skryf in een van sy gedigte aan sy vrou: “Kyk ek na die melkweg, in die gras, in die water, na die boog van die aarde, altyd iewers is jy ingepas.” Dit is met geen toeval dat wanneer ek die letters in jou naam herrangskik, dit die Engelse woord “Rain” word nie. Alles omtrent jou is ’n verfrissing vir my siel. Daar is op hierdie aarde niks wat so lekker ruik so die aarde na ’n bui reën nie, daar is selfs ’n woord daarvoor: “petrichor”. Jou teenwoordigheid bring hoop, vertroosting en gee lewe. Dit is my wens dat ons vir die res van ons lewens mekaar met dieselfde opgewondenheid tegemoet sal kom, soos wat die aarde ’n bui reën verwelkom” -Carle

“Ons lewe saam gaan vol avonture en mooi oomblikke wees. Die tye wat jy vir my klavier speel en saggies my rug streel. Die tye wat jy vir my lag, en ek vir jou. Dit is soos musiek in my ore en dit laai my siel. Jy is my perfekte lewensmaat, my sielsgenoot my beste vriend. Ek het die een gekry waarvoor my siel lief is. Jy was soos ‘n ster vir my, vêr stil & rein… my siel die donker water waar jou beeld in skyn. Ek kan dit nog steeds nie glo dat jy myne is nie.”

Ek bid dat julle altyd so Lièf bly!
