Real Wedding: Lara and Paul

Lara and Paul live in London and planned their wedding online and with the help of family and friends. They arrived in Cape Town 6 days before the wedding and managed to create a beautiful setting for their marriage vows and celebrations.


On the day of the wedding Lara got dressed at the beautiful private game reserve Clara Annafontein where lots of pre ceremony pictures were taken. The ceremony and reception took place at Pampoenkraal in the Durbanville wine valley

The day before the wedding Lara and Paul, together with their competent team of helpers went to set up the venue. From the onset they had decided to make the wedding their own with personal touches throughout. From cutting of flowers and fruit for the vases to wrapping ivy around the Chuppah to decorating the tables, this was all part of a days work.

These random detail pictures shows all the work Lara put into making the wedding as wonderful for the guests as well as themselves. Rumour has it that the carrot cake made by brides step mom was the most yummiest ever.

Congratulations Lara and Paul.

    This was indeed a very special day. Made made it even more special was being their next to my beautiful and very inspiring wife, Melanie! We are so very blessed, sharing the same passion! Not difficult to make magic happen when one can assist assist your very talented wife!

    Melanie and I were fortunate enough to be part of Natalie and Glyn Ogden’s special day. It was only one day after nonstop downpours and dark clouds were still making their presence felt on the actual day. “The Bridge” wedding venue aptly named after the low water bridge giving access to it was flooded and access had to be rerouted. Yet, God willing and with a stunning couple and bridal party we were able to capture yet another very special day. Creativity and the very willing, original and fun couple made for very unique moments captured forever.

    I never dreamed that my wedding day would be so amazing and it was so much more then I had dreamed of and had such a good time taking the photo’s I almost didnt want to stop. Melanie and Jaco were professional to the max and gave my dream wedding that extra flavour that would not have been possible without them! I still cannot believe the photo’s and how perfect they are! If you good you good. Over and out. Mrs Ogden (whoop whoop)
