Pieter and Marischke got married at Goose Hill in Bloemfontein. A wet rainy day. But that didn’t dampen the spirits. Marischke must have been the bravest bride I have ever photographed. I suggested that I will do the photo shoot the next morning when it might not be raining, but Marischke insisted that we do it right after the service…in the rain. Not very many brides will be prepared to get their hair and make up so messed up, but we all had a lot of fun.
I’ll tell you one thing, these people from Bloem know how to party, I was invited to a braai at Marischke’s dad Kobus’s house the Friday evening already, I went to bed later on to rest for the wedding the next day, just as well…their party went on until 02:00!
One thing that was very funny at the wedding was during Pieter’s speech, his friends gave him a lot of flack, and the one guy grabbed his speech. Pieter was at a loss for words for a while, until his bride came marching in, grabbed the speech from his friend’s hand and gave it back to Pieter. Clearly not a woman you mess with.
Marischke and Pieter met each other at a dance about 6 years ago. For a year they were dance partners, after that friends for the next two years. They then decided to give love a chance…and it worked.

I really enjoy being your wedding photographer Pieter and Marischke, I hope you enjoy the photos. It sure brought back very fond memories of the day when I was editing it.
