Everything about Vicky and Ivan’s rustic winter nuptials at the Casablanca Manor wedding venue (the gorgeous venue for a wedding photographer in Gauteng) was a flawless reflection of their easy going personalities – and Vicky’s bohemian pastel blue wedding gown was the perfect cherry to top it all off.
Admittedly having a boho obsession (since… FOREVER), capturing their well-thought-out wedding decor details got me giddy like a schoolgirl prepping for her first date. Right on (South African) wedding trend they included a variety of detail ideas, from succulents encased in glass to floating dream catchers suspended from the ceiling and everything in between.
I loved how their wedding centered not only around the significance of what they were doing, but how they indulged themselves in every moment they got to share with friends and family – who’d traveled far and wide to witness their union. Their wedding day was not only about getting married, but savouring every moment of it and taking the time to make memories they would never forget. They shed tears in the morning as they promised each other a lifetime of matrimony together, laughed as they played games in the afternoon sun and danced the night away to their favourite songs.
Fully committed, deeply in love and so ready to start the first chapter on a solid foundation of a love that only gets stronger as it matures with time…
There was no denying that their love is the patient kind that selflessly puts everyone first. So to see them take this special wedding day to pledge their love was such an honour to not only witness, but to photograph.
What struck me was the way Ivan lost himself in love every time he glanced at Vicky, and the way she gushed under his affectionate gaze. The depth of their love could undeniably be felt by everyone in the room in the secret kisses they exchanged throughout their wedding day.
They had long waited, planned and were finally savouring every moment of the first chapter that would mark the journey of an extraordinary adventure ahead.
