Nestled away in the Sneeuberge mountains around Graaff-Reinet is a little town we have grown very found of, Nieu Bethesda. The Karoo typically brings dry fields and barren hills to mind, however tucked away on the outskirts of the village is a beautifully lush forest that formed the backdrop for Lisa and Rheine’s magical wedding.
The leaves rustled in the gentle breeze as they read their vows to one another, and we couldn’t help but get caught up in the moment as all their friends and family celebrated their wedding. Upon entering their reception at the Waenhuis we saw that Jacques had brought his signature style to the venue. The new golden wall at the end of the old farm house was an amazing touch and brought so much warmth to an already lovely reception.
As the night unfolded we realised just how genuinely amazing these two are. No frills, no nonsense, just love and happiness, the way it should be! We could try describe their love further, but we believe the images tell their story best, so we hope you enjoy being part of their wedding day as much as we did!
"And beauty is a form of genius - is higher, indeed, than genius, as it needs no explanation. it is of the great facts of the world, like sunlight, or spring-time, or the reflection in dark waters of that silver shell we call the moon. It cannot be questioned. it has its divine right of sovereignty. It makes princes of those who have it."
