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!

  • First dance cuddles. I’m always such a softy for a good first dance! Whether that be something beautifully choreographed (if that’s your vibe), or a simple side to side shuffle. It’s the time in the night when any formalities are done, and the settling in to just enjoy the  rest of the evening has begun ☺️
  • Goosebumps and loving caresses.
  • We’ve never been big fans of set up photos where a couple stands for ages while some off camera flash is set up to get some backlight... we like to keep things more natural and moving. But this happened at the end of Kate and Brett’s couple shoot as I was driving our car up to take them back to their reception. Our car lights illuminated Kate and the slowly dripping rain, and Andy made some magic with it.
  • People always say rain on your wedding day is good luck... but bucketing rain and then a break, to grab some pics? Even more lucky 🙌🏽
  • Kate, ethereal forest nymph.
  • Rain yesterday? What rain?! Kate and Brett were fire 🔥

So amazing working with the talented babes from @Nixon makeup. @james_peters_film at one of our faves @crystalbarncountryestate with Kate in a stunning @chanellecindy_bridal dress (SO many more pics of the dress to come 😍)
  • These two couldn’t keep their eyes off of each other the entire day. Their love was such a joy to witness and recharged my wedding stoke in a massive way!
  • Kerry and Shane’s music video is up on our Vimeo page. Go check it out x
  • Weddings bring out all the powerful emotions. Of those we love, and of those we miss.
  • Bright light and big beach cuddles 💜
  • As much as I love a good, set up arty shot, sometimes those in between moments are everything 💜
  • It rained most of the day for Mari and Seb’s wedding, but just before sunset, we got this magic 🔥

  • 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
