Lize-Marie & Gerdus
Before I even get going, let me apologies for what is set to be a mammoth post, sure to load at a snail’s pace and cause all sorts of frustration! My bad, really, but I have all but given up on trying to pick my favorites and no doubt there will be an even larger selection going on to Facebook – so if you can’t get enough of the awesomeness, you’re well and truly in luck. However, if you’re unfortunate enough to still be using a dial-up modem, I’m afraid I have some really disappointing news for you… but hey, look at the bright side – at least Rocky III is coming to your town’s drive-in next month, so chin up!
So while you’re all waiting for those pics to load, let me tell you how much Lize-Marie and Gerdus’ wedding rocked – oh boy, it rocked A LOT! I actually feared for the safety of some guests, but that’s probably just because I had a really bad experience with a funnel back in the day. Got a wee flashback and nearly lost my dinner! Luckily no-one was hurt (badly) and everyone got on with the rather serious business of partying like rock stars.
Now, this was my first trip to Matjiesfontein – conveniently located right, slap-bang in the middle of nowhere – and while it offers very little along the lines of technological innovation or even such luxuries as TV, I was very happy to find it had no shortage of photo locations! a leisurely stroll through the entire town – which takes about 2 minutes, door to door – revealed several hundred good spots and it was immediately clear that finding a decent place to take photos was not going to be our biggest challenge for the day. I then headed over to where Lize-Marie was getting ready and let’s just say it was clear that getting a pretty pic of her would be about as hard as beating Kate Moss in an arm wrestling match. At this point you should be getting an idea of why I can’t pick my favorites for this post… from the moment I first put my camera to my eye that morning till I finally packed it away that night I was in photography heaven! I nearly died from the awesomeness!
There are so many favorite moments from this wedding that I’d like to share and hopefully the images will speak for themselves… but keep an eye out for some really stunning bridal portraits, a shot or 2 from the ceremony which are sure to make you go “AAAWWWWW”, some funnies from the bridal party, a couple of breathtaking couple photos and some rocking moments from the reception! and without further messing about, here they are!
oh, remember to head on over to the facebook page if you want to see a few more – will be up soon!
