They’re best friends, soul mates, meant to be…I sensed it the minute I met them. Lauren & Josh are the warmest, most bubbly, in love couple you’d wish to meet. It was a huge honour to witness their genuine love & to capture such goodness & unity. I also had the honour of photographing British friends of theirs 2 years ago, so it was very special to have had this opportunity to capture this day.
Their day was jam packed with love, laughter…lots of it, happy tears & smiles from ear to ear. Their wedding party included those from all over the world who are nearest & dearest to them. Those who couldn’t make it were remembered & included in little video clips in Josh’s speech. Lauren, a South African global citizen, has spent many glorious holidays in Cape Town with her family, so it seemed apt, that this gorgeous Swiss / British couple exchanged vows in Stellenbosch at the ever so fancy Lanzerac Hotel. Sadly, part of Lanzerac Hotel burnt down in February 2017. These images are even more dear to me now, as we were able to capture Lauren & Josh’s pure love & happiness in the historic grounds of Lanzerac before they were lost.
May you grow in love as you navigate life’s twists & turns together.
