Elanza & Jacques - Zevenwacht Wine Estate
Jacques and Elanza got married at the beautiful Zevenwacht Wine Estate just outside Kuilsrivier. It was a daytime wedding which was a nice change of pace for me since I normally get home at around twelve o clock after a wedding, this time though, the sun was still out!
Jacques and Elanza decided to have a small intimate wedding and it suited them very well because one can see that they have a special relationship with every single person at their wedding and with the way they treat people, we felt just as special as any of the other guests. I only met Elanza the day before the wedding and Jacques, I met at the ceremony, but after the couple shoot it felt like I have known them for years.
Zevenwacht realy is a wedding photographers dream because there are so many different locations to shoot and every location has its own special little something. From views of the whole peninsula to the forested look and even three dams to choose from. I could spend a whole day shooting there!
After all the formalities were done, we had some time left and we decided to do a mini shoot with Jacques, Elanza and all their friends. Only then did I understand why Jacques and Elanza didn't have groomsmen and bridesmaids, because all their friends were equally important to them and the mini shoot basically turned into, what I would normally do with the bridal party, just with a bigger crowd!
Thank you, Jacques and Elanza for making us a part of your special day, it was a great honour to meet you and work with you!!
