Ulana and Ruan’s gorgeous intimate wedding

Ulana contacted me last year (when I was expecting our son) to do an engagement photo-shoot for them. They were planning their big day on a cruise ship and needed some special invitations with a beach themed photoshoot for her guests. We found a cute little restaurant with sea sand and did their photos there with my waddling my huge stomach and swollen feet up and down the mini dunes.

The decor was meticulously prepared by the bride’s family and every tiny bit of attention was paid to the smalls details.

As you can’t legally get married on a boat they decided to have an intimate ceremony in Pretoria with their closest family to celebrate their love for each other. They chose the beautiful Candlewoods Guesthouse and Gazebo for the ceremony and Ga Rouge restaurant for dinner. For an interesting twist the ceremony took place at sunset and the couples photos were in almost complete darkness with only the romantic fairy lights to create a soft twinkling atmosphere.
