Gareth & Danica | Wedding

They made their love story official as Gareth asked Danica the question every girl dreams of during a picnic at Kirstenbosch, the famous botanical gardens at the foot of Table Mountain. As for her wedding day, what could be a more perfect start to the perfect day than a gorgeous Bride & Co Wedding Dress + Diamond encrusted Anella wedding shoes?  Top it all off with a good bottle of Champagne and you have one very happy girl.

Danica surrounded herself with friends & family which filled the room with joyous conversations. Gareth and his groomsmen made last minute deliveries and arrangements at the Guinea Fowl Restaurant before getting dressed next door. It was a stunning day in Cape Town and the light towards the end of the day at Saxenburg Wine Estate provided an idyllic backdrop to this enchanting setting.

The grand estate prides itself on an abundance of photo opportunities including a secret rose garden amidst the vineyards and game viewing deck overlooking camps of springbok, zebra and a few very curious ostriches that also wanted to be photographed… 2014-04-22_00042014-04-22_00652014-04-22_0066The décor was exquisite and styled to perfection by the professional and attentive in-house coordinator & team. 2014-04-22_00072014-04-22_0067 2014-04-22_00682014-04-22_0003 2014-04-22_00692014-04-22_00702014-04-22_00712014-04-22_0073 2014-04-22_00332014-04-22_0074 2014-04-22_00752014-04-22_00762014-04-22_00772014-04-22_0078 The couple exchanged vows with close friends and family at the Franschoek Dutch Reformed Church. 2014-04-22_00462014-04-22_00472014-04-22_00492014-04-22_00502014-04-22_0051Yes, guys also freak out over their wedding bands… 2014-04-22_0054 2014-04-22_00522014-04-22_00812014-04-22_00802014-04-22_0063

WELCOME TO THE BLOG

Hello there beautiful, I'm Leanne Steyn-Begley.

I'm a fashion designer turned photographer, irrevocably in love with macarons, creating content, and think champagne is always a good idea. I'm a mom to a tiny boy-human, make an Instagram worthy gluten-free breakfast, and wish it could be summer all year round.
