Yolandie & Westley – Chantecler, Hillcrest

28 February, 2008

I know there is nothing more boring for brides than reading through stories of “my kids are so wonderful”, so onto something much more exciting; the wedding of Yolandie and Westley.

Another mighty fine-looking couple (I promise they are not models I hired!), another great venue, and another great celebration!

Tanja and I got up at some outrageous hour of the morning to board our flight to Durban…a breeze for me (I have 15-month-olds), though, not so easy for Tanja…the pre-toddler phase being but a faded memory.

So, off to Durban – and not a beach in sight!

We were welcomed by both families with open arms and were almost in a time zone – you know, the days where everything takes longer and things were made to last. The days of cupcakes, Frank Sinatra, a vintage MG and romantic music.

Who said romantic weddings have to be boring?

Landie and Wes are the picture-perfect, storybook couple, probably the nicest, kindest people you could ever meet…and both damn good looking…Life just isn’t fair!

Their day was truly special and I am glad we both had the opportunity to experience it!

OK..STOP! …enough of this “gushy” “mushy” loooove stuff!…onto the photographs:

    OK how about I start paying you just to look at the pics!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Stunning!!!!!! Mzuri sana!!!!!!!!!!!! (swahili)

    Your assistants and DH have to be the luckiest people….I could look at these all day as a matter of fact I already looked at them 3 times already in the last 30 minutes!

    I keep thinking with each wedding you shoot this must be the wedding of the year….and sure enough you surprise on the next shoot! Have to say for a photographer that is an amazing “problem” to have…….

    I can’t get enough! WOW!!!!!!!!!! WOW!!!!!!!!!

    Yip it is a HUGE problem!….get nervous with each wedding as I want to get keep on getting better images…and it doesn’t help when the couples keep on looking like rockstars!

    Oh and btw DH is totally disinterested in weddings and photography, sad but true…that is why the selection process takes so long, I have no immediate ‘bounceboard’…and I am so terrible at narrowing down…would post 20 pics from each wedding if left to me own devices! I have a BPC (A Blog Post Consultant) which is not DH!!

  4. Anne Says:

    No need to get nervous at all with these kind of images…..DH does not know what he is missing….the pics always uplift me

    Have looked at them now I can’t even count how many times…They are just AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!! But pic #2 I mean seriously that pic is very very artistic and very unique!!!!!!!! I can’t even put it into words so will just leave it at FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC!!!!!!!!

  5. Audrey D. Says:

    #2 is also my favorite. But all of the photos are fantastic. Great job once again Andrea.

  6. Kate Says:

    You know if you did post 20 pics (or more) from each wedding we would all be thrilled, right?

  7. Jules Morgan Says:

    No 2 is one of the most awesome images I’ve seen in a while… VERY much a cracker!

    Thanks Jules..
    I know Kate but then the numbers go up…I then end up editing 60 pics…because I can’t choose!!
    ..and DH gets very annoyed with my constant plea’s for which one he prefers…”You’re a photographer? why are you asking me …you should know which one is a better shot”….Yes I know but which one do you prefer!
