Delaire Graff Intimate Wedding

I had the opportunity to shoot my second wedding at the amazing Delaire Graff Estate. Mark & Sacha is from Scotland and they travel to South Africa regularly for work and they really are in love with our beautiful country. They got engaged on Table Mountain, so it was very clear to them that they just had to get married here in Cape Town as well! And what a beautiful setting Delaire Graff is for a wedding! 
The wedding was organised by Hannes Loubser from Wedding Concepts and they did a terrific job! It really was a beautiful wedding and the love the couple has for each other was tangible, even though they have been together for 14 years! It really was a great privilege to share in their special day and we wish them many blessings on their marriage.

    Dear Charl and Tiana,

    WOW,WOW,WOW!!!! You have quite simply taken our breath away.Truly.

    There are no words to describe what you two have created.Somehow,through your incredible gift we now have the most beautiful,elegant,enchanting story of our unforgettable day.

    It took forever to get WiFi on return to Bantry Bay.As you can imagine we were desperate to see them!!We thought it would be a while until we got a glimpse of any.So when we finally got connected,well...............we sat with jaws dropped and eyes wide open.We had to go back to the start just to try and take these STUNNING images in!!

    Neither of us ever imagined this **Magical**day could be recorded in such an exquisite way.Attention to details,light,forms,background,surroundings,people,feelings,music,
    decor,art,moments......Alongside natures gifts of Earth,Wind&Fire.It's potent.

    My goodness, you worked sooooooooooooo hard all day&through the night.Zooming here&there,silent as you weaved your Magic.Utterly incredible.Something to be greatly admired.We feel blessed that you captured the very thing that we are and we feel.

    You are clearly in Love,have another two wee Angels and are a superb team.That must lend to your unique talents.Feels like you can just step right back into the moment ,it's so clear,so vivid.

    We cannot Thank you enough.Cannot wait for the rest!!!!
    Be lovely to catch up next time we are back,if you are free.
    Hope the babysitter went well.Know you crazy month ahead so wishing you some 'chill out ' times ahead.

    Once again,Thank You.Still speechless,can't believe it's us!!!

  7. Fenominale werk,Charl! Well done en dankie.

  8. Thanks to Sacha and Mark for inviting us to share in your wedding day. Both of us were absolutely blown away by the setting and loved South Africa. We have shown friends and family the photos since we have been back in the UK and they have all been really impressed. I think they perfectly capture the beauty of the place and the atmosphere on the day. They are gorgeous -you must be really pleased. You both look like you have just stepped out of a glossy magazine !
    Lots of Love Amanda and Ker x

  9. Charl and Tiana, your professionalism shines through in the breathtaking quality of your pictures. As father of the bride I wanted this to be the best day of my daughter's life,and your photos capture every element of the day beautifully. South Africa is such a special place and within it the wine region is extra special.The views are spectacular, the setting at Delaire is perfect as a wedding venue,the ceremony was very emotional,the presentation of the reception room with all the beautiful flower arrangements was stunning,the chefs showed great creativity with the various courses, and your sensational photos will give Sacha an enduring record of a truly wonderful day and I thank you for that.
    Michael Skinner.
