Niel & Elne

Up to now, the West Coast sky had been postcard-perfect.

Spectacular cloud formations and magnificent sunsets are all but a gift from the month of May.  Staring out the window though, everyone held their breath as gravel-grey skies threatened to rain down on us.  But nothing could dampen the enthusiastic bride’s spirit on her glorious wedding day, and Mr. Drizzle kept his distance.

While Niel anticipated Elne’s arrival at Churchhaven, a secluded beach village in the West Coast National Park, a breath-taking ocean view awaited friends and family.  As the wedding bells announced the start of her march an abundance of light filled the aisle and revealed a radiant bride.

While the overcast day was a photographer’s dream, every now and then a golden sunbeam brightened a magical moment or two.

Niel and Elne, you are the sweetest couple a photographer could ask for. Your day – and every single detail, the beautiful view, amazing friends, loving family, ALL of it was picture perfect. May your life together be one big adventure! I am so honoured to have played a small part in it, and wish you both nothing but true happiness & joy. Be blessed.

Much Love,

    Hello there beautiful, I'm Leanne. I'm a Cape Town based creative, irrevocably in love with photography, social media, and think Champagne is ALWAYS a good idea.

    I'm also a mom to a tiny boy-human, make an Instagram worthy pancake breakfast, and wish it could be summer all year round.
