A chilly morning, with the sun gently breaking through just enough to keep us warm through a ceremony next to a dam on a trout lodge overlooking the Dullstroom meander with its winter palette. One thing was guaranteed at Philip + Claudia’s wedding that no amount of chill in the air was going to put a damper on the joy and celebration of a wedding day and a bit of dancing and merriment was bound to chase the cold away. Dullstroom is a special gem and we were so excited to be able to capture another wedding story at The Hot House with its beautiful view. There was a calm to the day as it flowed effortlessly, with many hands humbly assisting and helping out with a smile or joke as the last details were checked, flowers placed on tables and Claudia practiced her walk down the aisle while the groom donned himself with his wedding suit. There was such laughter and it was clear both Claudia and Philip were thrilled that this day had finally arrived and to be able to share it with those near and dear to you, what a joy! It was special for us to see the close bond between the siblings as Claudia’s brides men and bridesmaid came walking down the aisle, much to the delight of the guests attending. After the ceremony the chatter did not stop and we had such fun working together with White Motion to capture the laughter, the joy, the tenderness and delight of being able to share this big moment in their lives. “Finally! You are mine and I am yours, together we now journey and chart our new path as husband and wife.”
Philip and Claudia may the love you experienced from your family growing up be a guide to starting your own family. May you never stop laughing and enjoying life together as you love one another. Cherish each other, never stop surprising each other and most of all may the friendship between the two of you continue to grow. We thoroughly enjoyed the day with you and pray that the images remind you of your wedding story creatively designed and envisioned, and lovingly put together by many helping hands and hearts.
“Be completely humble and gentle; Be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace.”- Ephesians 4:2-3
