Wedding Bells at Rainfarm

Not many couples have a story like that of Jeff & Tanya. They met in the warm coastal town of Ballito during the festivities of Matric Rage and years later, just 15 minutes away from where they first met, they walked down the isle to start the rest of their lives together.

Even though years have passed, they still look so in love. There were nerves, happy tears, laughs, hugs and love all around Rainfarm where they decided to tie the knot. What a special, gorgeous wedding venue this is. Jeff & Tanya have a passion for the bush so a bush wedding close to home and close to where it all began was idyllic. So on a warm and sunny day in Ballito they invited some of their nearest and dearest to share this occasion with them. It was a day full of love, not only between the couple, but the love that the family members have for each other was just so incredibly touching.

Their wedding was filled with moments… the moment Tanya’s girls saw her in her wedding dress for the first time. The moment Jeff’s mom fixed his tie and realised her boy was getting married. The moment tears welled up in Tanya’s dad’s eyes as he walked is baby girl down the isle. The moments in church where Jeff just had to sneak a look at his beautiful bride. Moments everywhere! Wow that’s why I love my job! Feww ok now back to the couple!!

They were married in Rainfarm’s gorgeous stone chapel with a view of rolling hills and african bush. The setting for the evening’s festivities was the boma with it’s characteristic fire in the middle to keep everyone warm. The night was made by heartwarming speeches, live music and of course some great moves on the dance floor! Oh yes and dare i forget the Karaoke contributions!

Jeff and Tanya, from the bottom of my heart – “Thank you”! I never take for granted what a privilege it is to capture people’s special moments. Thank you for allowing me into your lives to capture your day. You are a gorgeous couple, your families are amazing and I so loved working with you! I wish you so much joy and happiness as you do life together! Cheers to you!
