This one is definitely right up there with Mikki & Nwabisa’s wedding we did last year at Webersburg in Stellenbosch. For the reception, a massive “glass” marquee to accommodate the 450 pax guest list was erected – not to mention the spoil with live performances by famous SA entertainers the likes of Malaika & Zakes Bantwini! Rewind to the ceremony – imagine 4 helicopters descending in unison for the arrival of the bride, groom and entourage… and wait for this… the bride carried to the aisle “queen-style” by 4 “Mr World” contestants.
We lost a bit of time because of the ceremony running late, so most of the couple shoot was done in total darkness! Luckily I had invested in an Elinchrom Quadra Ranger just a week before! This portable flash system also has a pilot light function which gives a beautiful soft light – in the end, I must say, I’m quite proud of these night shots – most taken on about 1/30 shutter speed wide open on my 85mm f1.8. (sorry for all the tech jargon brides!)
A big thank you to Garden Route Photographer, Jaco Vollgraaff, that assisted me on this one!
