About a year ago, I started a small project building a country wedding venue on my parents Protea Farm just outside Pretoria, Cullinan. I am really excited about it, we are just in the process with the finishing touches. It will be open to the Public on the 1st of April 2015.
I am totally in love with the farm and the surroundings, it is full of beautiful blooms right throughout the year, and the different varieties are endless. I spend hours and hours in the garden when I am on the farm, not to mention just sitting on the rocks, enjoying the scenery. Now I can enjoy that same spot with a soft chair, maybe a glass of wine, or even a coffee, my children running on the grass. So I am now eagerly looking forward receiving bookings for the venue to complement my photography. Even though I am here in the UK, I still get excited about it.
Being brought up with all these wonderful blooms; I never stop getting excited about the opportunity to blend the perfect back drop with a beautiful model, Liezl is just one of my favourite friends that I like to photograph, she is just around the corner and absolutely stunning, she has a warm heart that overflows with kindness.
These photos were taken on the farm, there is a perfect spot that has white tall grass, so pretty I just love the softness it created in these images. Perfect for a bride to be!
The flowers were all hand picked from my garden.
