Previously KNOT JUST PICS. Same shit, different name.

Our very own fantastical wedding!

Shoo wee! I dont even know where to start with this post! Writing about our own wedding seems so much harder than writing about all the wonderful weddings we shoot! (Be warned, this post will have lots more writing than normal as lots of people have asked lots of questions about our wedding) Lets start off with our most asked question, “who is shooting your wedding?”. We knew from the get go that we didnt want super traditional or super posed pics, we really wanted someone who would bring something unique to shooting our wedding, like we try to do for the couples whose weddings we shoot. That is why we didnt hire a wedding photographer, we hired Tyrone Bradley, an event, motoring and people photographer working with Red Bull and itswhatiminto. Tyrone was so awesome and we learnt so much from him and we really could not have asked for a more incredible guy! He even stayed and jammed with us till the end of the reception!

When it came to our own wedding pics, 2 things were important to us, having our photos in Ponta D’Ouro (about a 40 minute round trip from the wedding venue in Ponta Malongane) and to not be away from our friends and family for too long after the ceremony. The best option then was to do our pics the day before and boy are we glad we did! There was no rushing, no guilt about missing out on our reception, and best of all it created so much excitement for the day before the wedding as well! We did first look pics where our parents led us to each other. It was so good to include them and honestly, I would highly recommend this to any couple interested!

  • Exploring the world's smallest desert. The red dunes only span about 200m and are surrounded by lush vegetation and wetlands.
  • Those gigantic eyes 😍
  • Meeting "Ducky" the African wood owl had to be the highlight of our short Botswana adventure.

She was found on the forest floor on one of the small islands in the Okavango Delta. Tiny, vulnerable and featherlessly pink. The guys at @gumacamp took her home to nurture her back to health and, when she was ready, release her back into the wild. But despite all efforts to rehabilitate her back into the forest, she kept coming home to the lodge.

Ducky is now a healthy five year old who loves catching moths and mice. She also enjoys head strokes and chin scratches, but watch out for those talons...😬 Why the name "Ducky" for an owl? Summer gets relentlessly hot in the Delta, so Ducky cools off by swimming in the pond or sitting under the overflow pipe for the rainwater tanks. 
Bless her feathery little heart!❤
  • That beehive-in-your-torso feeling of excitement (or is it anxiety?!) when you walk out over a runway to board a small plane. This is Maun International Airport, and our last few moments on Botswanan soil. Thanks @fly_airlink for helping make our excitement outweigh our anxiety.
  • One last sunset booz crooz on the Delta.
  • Papyrus for days. Just think of all the scrolls the ancient Egyptians could have made.
  • Another sexy Botswana sunset over the Delta
  • Exploring the Okavango Delta on a mokoro. We heard hippo grunting nearby and got the helloutofthere 😳
  • The great thing about a mokoro boat ride is that it's slow and silent, so you can get up close and discover the insane beauty in the details.
  • Trying to stop the African sun from aggressively burning my pastey skin. 
Our @seatosummitgear Drylite travel towels are more than just drying towels. We use them as blankets, yoga mats and, in this case, for shade.
  • I took this photo of Szerdi moments before we got our motorboat hopelessly tangled in papyrus. Floating papyrus sometimes breaks away from the main islands and blocks up the canals. We had to lift the motor to physically drag the boat over the papyrus and into clear water.
  • One thing about exploring the delta on a mokoro is you get to appreciate the small beauties this place has to offer.
