OK…this is officially the most organised bride I have EVER seen. No wonder NOTHING went wrong!
But what a WONDERFUL couple. They let me do my job and was ALWAYS ready for another photograph! I photographed their wedding in Roodepoort for a grueling (but VERY satisfying) 11 and a half hours Saturday. She had one of the nicest wedding dresses I have ever seen.
I really felt sorry for Tommy though. He is English and Juanita is Afrikaans. When the minister said they are going to say the vows Tommy nervously asked “Just in English please!” And there the minister let him do the vows in Afrikaans. But…RESPECT for you Tommy! You did well man.
Tommy and Juanita…you are going to have a very happy marriage, you really compliment each other. Thanks for the INCREDIBLE privilege of being your wedding photographer.
I silently swallowed my tears on two occasions. Juanita’s dad passed away two years ago and they announced that her brother will dance with her for her dad. The music they chose…Luther van Dross’s “Dance with my father” I don’t think there was a dry eye at the reception…especially at the chorus part:
If I could steal
One final glance
One final step
One final dance with him
I’d play a song that would never ever end
Cause I’d love love love to dance with my father again
Before that Juanita called her mum to the front and she and her brother and sister hold her mum while one of her friends sang a special song for her mother.
Here is their wedding photos. Have you ever seen such a beautiful chartered accountant? I think I’m going to chance auditors!
I will remember your wedding for a very long time Tommy and Juanita. Enjoy your honeymoon.
The wedding was held at Mellow Oaks and her make up and hair was done by Mariska of Salon Mariska. Cel nr: 082 576 1418
