Asara Wine Estate Hotel Wedding – JP & Lienkie

Asara Wine Estate Hotel Wedding

I had the privilege to cover JP & Lienkie’s wedding on Saturday. It was held at the Asara Wine Estate 5 star Hotel just outside of Stellenbosch.

I loved the people attending the wedding. There were so many personalities, faces, cultures and ages. It truly was a celebration across all spheres of life. JP & Lienkie are truly happy together. One got the impression that everyone was wanting that for them as well. Very special indeed.

We had to think on our feet with a few changes in timings due to several factors. One being the weather. There was a cold wind tormenting the guests at pre-drinks and we decided to do the entrance sooner before leaving for a shorter couple shoot. I believe it is always important to let people remember a wedding for all the right reasons. I also would have loved to spend more time photographing Lienkie prior to the ceremony, but we managed a quick 5-minute shoot and focussed on her a bit more during the couple shoot. All worked out fine at the end.

JP & Lienkie – I really hope you like this taster of your wedding day. Thank you again and enjoy!

The Wedding Planner

MY stepson was my wedding planner .i decided to include my children to plan my wedding only because the children never get to be in their parents wedding only because they usually not born when the parents get married.sharing my day with my kids was the most priceless thing ever and it brought us more together and to be able to work together under pressure.

Wedding Transport

i hired an old timer car one of those 1940 cars .it was really important for me .i was with my mom and my step daughter in the car

Food & Cake
