Man, one thing about these two on their wedding day - they were absolutely BEAMING. From start to finish, Ashleigh couldn't hide her excitement and I'm pretty sure you won't be able to hold back a smile as you look at her face in these photos! Love makes you radiant. I loved the intimate moment the couple shared before the ceremony - resisting a peak at their soon-to-be spouse, they held hands and prayed together, committing the day and themselves to God.
Ian & Ashleigh got married in what felt like the middle of a heat wave in the Western Cape. Yet somehow they managed to look flawlessly fresh and the scorching sun certainly didn't keep them from getting nice and close :)
Mr & Mrs Janse Van Rensburg had a lunchtime wedding at Delvera in Stellenbosch with a delicious buffet spread. It was a wonderfully relaxing afternoon spent connecting with close friends and family over a meal. It's always awesome photographing amongst friends and past clients - I've had the privilege of shooting both the groomsmen getting married (have a look at Mechiel & Jan's weddings here)!
There were some beautiful family moments where Ashleigh gave bouquets to the couples who had been married the longest - a stunning way to acknowledge and celebrate the promise of marriage!
Ian & Ashleigh, wishing you guys many years of love and joy together!
Thank you Hayley for second shooting.
