Brenden & Michelle | Thaba Tshwene Game Lodge

It’s been a while since I photographed at Thaba Thswene Game Lodge in North West Province, ever since I moved back to Cape Town. I absolutely love destination weddings and although it comes with its fair share of extra stress and costs, it is always worth it!

A 3 hour flight delay and taking off in a stormy Cape Town on Friday night could not dampen my excitement! There is something about the winter light in the dry north where they don’t have winter rain like here in Cape Town. Winter weddings here are sunny but with temperatures dropping to below zero for the night photos!

I’ve known Michelle for a couple of years as she is also a keen photographer and she assisted me on a few shoots before. She always said that one day when she gets married, I will be her photographer – and here we are! Brenden makes it comfortably into my top 5 most emotional grooms that I’ve seen at a wedding and this spectacular long-sleeved dress by one of my favourite designers, Jacqueline’s Bridal Couture, also goes on the favourites list! I had the hardest time to choose a few sneak peeks but here are a few of my favourites from their wedding story. There was just so much energy, smiles and happy tears to share – good luck guys for choosing photos for the album!

Congratulations Brenden & Michelle!
