Oh my goodness! What a beautiful wedding it was. Castello di Monte is just one of those VERY special venues. Nestled in the heart of Pretoria, it is the ideal place if you want a small, very intimate and beautiful wedding.
Rikus and Anette came to see me a few months ago to chat about their wedding photography. I liked them immediately. Like me, they love the outdoors, and they know what they want!
Their wedding was everything I thought it will be. Stylish, well planned, very good friends and a lot of fun and excitement. Anette looked absolutely beautiful in her dress. They opted to get married in a church close by, and while the guests were having cocktails we started with the shoot. Anette is absolutely mad about jacaranda trees and their flowers. In fact, she said she even arranged her wedding so that it coincides with the jacaranda trees blooming. So that was our first stop, in a street in Pretoria, close to the church, a beaming Anette, a happy Rikus, and purple Jacarandas everywhere.
The rest of the wedding shoot was done at Castello di Monte itself, and here it is not a matter of “where do I shoot?” There are more than enough places.
There was lots of laughter and fun, and dancing, and absolutely delicious food.
We ended the evening with a night shoot.
Rikus and Anette, this one we will never forget. It was so awesome to be your wedding photographer!
Thanks for using us!
