Destination weddings are always a favourite, and not only did Phillip & Reanda fly in from UAE for their wedding in their hometown Klerskdorp in North West province South Africa, but I also travelled from Cape Town to photograph their special day.

By the ceremony time, the day turned into what would be most couples’ nightmare – pouring rain at their outdoor ceremony. Everything was moved inside very quickly, but this did not for one moment dampen the couple’s spirit! The love between these two is incredible – there was not a single moment when they did not have the biggest smile on their faces.

Reanda stunned in a beautiful dress by Calvers Bridal in Klerksdorp, and her stunning Ted Baker floral heels is definitely one of my personal favourite pair of shoes that I have seen brides wear. The day was definitely challenging from a photographer’s point of view as we had to manage the timeline constantly around the rain, even taking most of their couple photos in the rain. I just love the outcome and I think the weather added so much to the story of this incredible day!  Like the traditional saying goes, rain in your wedding day is a huge blessing. Congratulations on your union Phillip & Reanda and thank you for making me a part of this day!
