Kotse and Thato’s stylish wedding at Lavender Hills in Bethlehem by JC Crafford


When we met Kotse and Thato for a glass of wine we immediately knew that we want to photograph their wedding, we just clicked straight away. The fact that they got married at the beautiful Lavender Hills in Bethlehem made us even more excited. We are VERY big fans of Evette and Lavender Hills, every wedding that they host here is something spectacular, have a look at the photos and judge for yourself.

Kotse and Thato, thanks for trusting us with your memories of your wedding, we really enjoyed being your wedding photographers.

 They booked our videography and photography services, so, early on the Saturday we were off to Bethlehem to photograph their wedding.

I asked Kotse and Thato a couple of questions about their wedding:

How did you meet?

We both went to the University of Pretoria. Through a mutual friend we met up post varsity, became friends and in a short period found ourselves in love.

Tell us about the proposal

Rose petals, candle light, my favourite flowers, our favourite songs – with the best part being a DVD he put together of our 4 years of dating…

Describe your wedding day, anything specific that you will always remember

Set in the eastern free state, at a venue called Lavender Hills  country Estate.

The wedding was stunning..angelic..!

God sent us Ps Dlula, he made our ceremony one of the best part of our wedding. He was fun, real, informed, current and genuine.The same can be said about all the people that helped us to put it together.

As with any wedding, there were hicups here and there, however nothing big..Best advise I got is that you shouldn’t sweat the small things because only you know that its not going as per the plan.

Tell us about your photographer.

JC Crafford, the weather did not follow the script that day, however JC is so talented –  our pictures look like it was the perfect spring day!

Where was your honeymoon? Mauritius
