When Laura Jane asked me to come back to Gauteng to shoot this particular wedding with her- I was exctatic! Not only because the wedding was to take place at a beautiful location, The Cradle, or even because of another opportunity to work with my great friend and fantastic photographer, Laura Jane. These things played a part of course, however, the main reason is because, a couple of months earlier, on a previous trip to Gauteng to work with Laura, I had had the privilage of assisting on the couples e-shoot. Take a moment and go check it out here, I promise you wont be dissapointed! You can see from the outcome of this awesome shoot, that Josh and Megan are a couple made for each other, so full of fun and genuine affection for each other. I couldn’t wait to help capture their celebration.
Josh and Megan are a very special couple. And their wedding day was overflowing with magical moments. The ceremony was like something straight out a modern fairytale- Josh and Megans family and friends gathered on a beautiful day under a stunning canopy of trees on the grounds of The Cradle, and awaited the beginning of the celebration, which was kicked of by a fantastic strut down the aisle by Josh and his groomsmen, followed by a beaming Megan with her obviously proud father.
The ceremony itself was a fantastically personal reflection of the couple- full of love and sincerity, (and a few giggles for good measure!).
But it was after the ceremony that Laura and I really started with our happy dancing- the light was awesome as we drove from location to location around the stunning grounds of The cradle. And Josh and Megan have so much chemistry between them, it was such a joy to capture the two of them basking in the celebration of their love.
The reception was no let down either, beautifully decorated with touches of Josh and Megan everywhere. And after a fantastic entrance by the newlyweds, the most heartfelt speeches had all of us in tears. Then came the first dance, it began with a stunning and elegant turn around the dancefloor and transformed in true Josh and Megan style into a quirky and fun boogie, setting the tone for a wonderful night of music, love and laughter.
So this is Josh and Megans big day as seen through my lens. A huge thanks to Laura Jane for asking me to shoot with you! Be sure to go and check out Laura Janes blog post here– You’re gonna Love it!
Thanks so much to Josh and Megan for letting me be a part of your most magical day! I wish you all the happiness in the world for the rest of your lives together.
