Previously KNOT JUST PICS. Same shit, different name.

I know I have said this every time we have shot an intimate wedding… but intimate, family orientated weddings have such a magic to them – there is something so special about being surrounded by only your absolute closest humans that brings such a calmness and privateness to a marriage. Rosie and Deane chose to get married at her parents home, in their garden surrounded by all their special people, and they both got ready in rooms in the home that were warm and familiar to them – surrounded by family members and the fluffy family members. Every part of their day was a community effort, from building her bouquet, setting up the garden and house, and even serving the homely platters of food. It was very clear to us that  a lot of people love these two very much. Rosie wore the most exquisite boho dress from phenomenal designer Sadie Bosworth which was honestly beyond perfect for her. Her make up was done by the amazingly talented Pam McNeil. It was such an honour for us to share such an incredible day, and its always more of an honour when creatives trust you, and give you creative freedom to document their day.

  • When that late summer sunset light plays ball - it was meant to be bucketing down, but nature clearly had other plans. This is the last pic we grabbed before Sara and Barend went into their reception. Their love was such a joy to witness 😍
  • There’s nothing more special than the chance to witness two families coming together for their kids.
  • 2 Photographers  2 focal lengths at 2 angles, 1 moment and 1 Sara. Which do you prefer?
  • Sara and Barend. I love how during their ceremony they kept squeezing each other’s hands, an almost imperceptible sign of their love and excitement for doing this amazing thing.
  • Sara and Barend got married yesterday. Their wedding was everything I (selfishly) needed to restore my love and faith in what I do. Getting to witness a love as rich, and deep as theirs was a very welcome blessing that still has me grinning today.
  • Things that make me beam with happiness: witnessing Sara and Barend’s one in a million kind of love yesterday.
Things that me fume: not being able to edit more previews as Load Shedding has kicked in, again...
  • A taste of something so special. Dee and Emile 🔥
  • Incredibly excited to see these two again tomorrow for their wedding!
  • I’ve had this on my heart for a while, so here it goes... When did weddings stop being about two unique humans with unique stories joining their lives together?

Weddings have changed a LOT since we first started shooting them, and I sometimes feel like photographers and definitely social media are to blame for this. 
When I look through Instagram and Pinterest, I’m bombarded with the same messages and images over and over again. To have a meaningful wedding, you need to wear a dress worth the same as a deposit on a home, look like a model, get married somewhere exotic - preferably on a mountain or in Iceland, have decor and details oozing out of every crevice and THIS is what makes your wedding worthy... Likes on Facebook and Instagram. 
Somewhere , along the line we have lost what we are meant to be doing here. Let me just be clear, there is NOTHING wrong with any of the things I’ve just mentioned, if they are really what you want/who you are /are able to afford. 
But I feel like too many people are facing too much pressure to have weddings that they think they are meant to, instead of what they want. I totally drank the cool aid and started trying to make the pictures I thought I should instead of observing what was in front of me, and honestly? I stopped loving the pictures I was making. I may have become jaded with time, but I feel as a photographer far more fulfilled when I get to be witness to people telling their truth - When the focus is on the story and the people involved rather than what’s going to get the most likes and me trying to create content rather than document what’s in front of me. And want to know a little secret? It’s revolutionized how we shoot and how we approach weddings - serving the two unique individuals and their unique story produces both better photos and memories and keeps me in love with what I do.

We so often miss the real stories when we are preoccupied with shooting a wedding for Instagram instead of the people who have trusted us to memorialize their story. 
TLDR:
People make weddings. 
And they are all freaking awesome. *end rant, continue as you were...*
  • Kelly and Tim’s misty forest wedding is up on our blog today.
  • Can you feel my heart?
  • Those lazy Monday vibes. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t jealous of how hard Stu is chilling today while we work hard to keep him and the other fluffs in stock of parsley, kale and other salad goods ☺️

  • People watching from the shade.
  • Exploring the narrow streets and alleyways of Stone Town, Zanzibar. This place reminds us so much of the old part of Jeddah with the African/Arab cross culture and architecture.
  • It may be “sun’s out, guns out”, but it’s “balls out” at sunset when the heat finally let’s up.
  • Excellent vibe on what’s left of the beach at high tide.
  • Ocean and people watching from a shadey spot. The guy on the right, dressed in tradition Masai garb, is David. We had along chat about tattoos before he sold me a bracelet.
  • Dear god it’s hot. But also quite nice.
  • Hello Zanzibar 🤗 Can’t wait to get in that water!
  • We’re a hazard when we’re walking the streets cus we’re always looking up and bumping into people. Obsessed with the beautiful Dutch architecture!
  • If you really want to blow your mind in Amsterdam, try walking round an art gallery after visiting a “coffeeshop”. 🤯
  • Yesterday it was sunny, but the overcast sky and light drizzle suit this place way more. #wechooseadventure_scotland #wechooseadventure
  • Exploring Edinburgh at night. In this place, if it’s not raining, it’s about to rain. #wechooseadventure #wechooseadventure_scotland
  • Made a special mission to see these guys in Glasgow last night. Absolutely epic! @coheed
