On a boiling hot day Rhyno and Willemien made their promises to each other surrounded by friends and family. I am totally in love with the venue too – Ou Kraaltjie is a brand new farm venue just outside Britz and at the time of the wedding surrounded by lush fields of bright green lucern. As summer goes the intense heat was followed by a thunder storm…washing away the dust and cooling the earth and with the rain fading away we could venture outside for a second round of photos. The gorgeous fields of green contrasted beautifully with the red roads and borrowing a red umbrella from one of the guests, we spent some time playing around.
A second storm forced us back inside and while it poured and thunder and lightening provided another show, Rhyno made his heartfelt speech to his new bride perched on two chairs with his friends surrounding him on grass bales. Willemien just smiled shyly – she looked absolutely stunning!! The food was good, the decor lovely and I could see everyone was having a good time.
A perfect rainbow lit up the sky after that last storm, and in the very last rays of sunlight we managed to get some magical photos – the rain illuminated by the pink light of sunset. Blessings definitely poured on this couples’ day – literally buckets full!!
But here they are…have a look! Thank you for your patience – you are amazing people, I know your life together will be equally blessed!!
