Shepstone Gardens wedding: Ursula + Kevin by Amanda Custo

When we arrived at Shepstone Gardens last Saturday morning (skies beautifully clear, a couple of white doves perched on the chapel steeple), we were told that "the weather is just too perfect...it will surely rain later on...".

But it didn't. And it stayed perfect. 
We were so ridiculously excited about Ursula & Kevin's wedding, we were shaking with excitement (quite literally actually!) - not only by the dripping blooms from every ceiling beam and arch but by Ursula and Kevin's contagious excitement (and of course, Ursh's AMAZING wedding gown). Zavion, Lauren and the rest of the Zavion Kotze Events Company team was in top form arranging and decorating, while the crew of Zavion's TV show was filming their every move.
We feel blessed to have been part of such an awe-inspiring production!

Former Miss SA Nicole Flint marries David van Heerden by Amanda Custo

Our first meeting with Nicole was at the Palazzo hotel for coffee one morning early last year. It was the perfect setting: this gorgeous woman in regal surrounds - looking like it was all made for her.

Then, she opened her mouth. Magical smile, relaxed laugh - absolutely dazzling - not by her beauty only, but by her warmth. Nicole Flint must be the most down to earth, "real" and just genuinely nice celebrities that we've ever met and had the pleasure of working with. You look,  look again, and listen and every time you just love her more!

We are sure that her handsome husband, David, fell for this side of Nicole, and although we only met him on the wedding day itself, he also made us feel like we'd known each other for years. 

David and Nicole's stunning country-style wedding took place at Cranford Country Lodge in the Kwazulu-Natal Midlands. We arrived on a chilly and foggy Friday afternoon, but the next day the weather couldn't have been more perfect - bright and sunny with a cool breeze blowing. Like it was ordered!

Nicole looked absolutely breathtaking (as if anything else was possible) thanks to Sam Scarborough that did the make-up, Gail Glemius the hair and the show-stopping dress by Anel Botha Couture.

We worked alongside Top Billing and Bravo & Thatcher on the day that filmed the wedding. 

Eve of the Splendid Wedding Company was responsible for the gorgeous flowers and décor (we especially loved Nicole's stylishly loose, country chic bouquet!)

Lastly, we would like to thank AtPhoto for sponsoring Nicole & David's leather wedding album - here is a little clip of them picking it up at the studio:
