Previously KNOT JUST PICS. Same shit, different name.

Ntombi & Geir

Since we fell into the Wedding documenting business we have been very lucky to share these special days with a number of dynamic and lovely couples. Each wedding we have been a part of has shared something unique and special with us. While weddings by nature follow a set pattern to a degree (ie- two people committing their lives to one another) we are endlessly surprised by the array of differences each wedding can have. Some weddings we have shot look as perfect as if they have just stepped off a Pinterest board, some stand out for the wonderfully crazy people we meet,  others are in a breathtaking setting, then there are those carried by the one fundamental detail that all weddings should have and which is the most important of all. Love. When love is powerful enough to bring together people from opposite corners of the world and to fall so in love with one another that cultural and language barriers are not an issue; when tables and chairs dont arrive till after the time the reception is meant to begin isnt an issue, when the heavens open up during a ceremony with a massive storm which water logs both the reception and couple shoot and it isn’t noticed, this. This is why we shoot weddings. I cannot do justice to this wedding with my words, but looking at these pictures I feel you need to know about these things.

The day of Ntombi and Geir’s wedding started  off badly. We usually arrive a minimum of two hours before we are meant to be at a wedding so that we can get comfortable in the environment and to ensure a time window should we get stuck in traffic, get a flat tyre, get lost etc. We did not expect to get stuck in traffic behind the demolition of a section of the freeway which resulted in us moving 3 km’s in two hours. We arrived in Eshowe at the exact time the ceremony was scheduled to start. Luckily(?) for us everything was delayed and behind schedule due to an unexpected family funeral, the decor people and band being stuck in the same traffic as us, and the ceremony starting nearly 3 hours later than intended. This would seem like an omen that the wedding would perhaps unfold in a similar way. This was not to be the case.

Geir is Norwegian and Ntombi is Zulu. They met while he was in South Africa teaching music. Some may think that bringing two cultures as diverse as these together would be challenging, but this could not be further from the reality. Geir and Ntombi both come from big hearted and openly loving families who share a deep and powerful love of God. Geir’s father was one of the two ministers who conducted their ceremony. It was truly emotional in a raw and powerful way, seeing the blending of English, Zulu and Norwegain in their vows, hymns and newly united families. Everyone was as passionate about the love that Ntombi and Geir share for each other and this came across in the powerful love and energy that everyone shared. These two groups of people who would never ordinarily have met one another were merged through their love of Ntombi and Geir and their belief in the power of their love. The fact that it rained didn’t matter. The fact that the ceremony started late didnt matter. The fact that their reception area had no lighting and had to be lit by make-shift chandeliers and candles blowing out in the strong wind only added to the sense of determination and power this union brought.

Ntombi and Geir, we are blessed and honoured to have shared your wedding with you. Your wedding is the reason we fell in love with shooting weddings and we cannot thank you enough. We know you are going to have a beautiful and blessed life together.

    Knot Just Pics, SHOO, you guys! I’m at a loss for words! I’m totally ecstatic for Geir and Ntombi. You can’t tell from these pics the kinds of challenges we were up against. Ntombi had such fun (as did Geir); I’ve never seen a bride laugh so much, ever! Bravo to you both for bringing your A-game and producing a fine set of pics. These are ridiculously good, it’s insane. May you shoot many more weddings and may your business grow from strength to strength.

  • Yesterday on our run I came across a wet, dirty little bunny. I thought there would be no way I would be able to catch him, but he hopped up to me and I scooped him up and carried him home. He seems to be settling in okay, now just to see if our two grumpy old man buns will accept a newbie, otherwise we are going to have to find this little charmer a home. (There is more bunny than is visible here...)
  • This babelicious golden light makes my heart skip a beat, Lisa and Gareth are kind of alright too...

  • Matri and Nick rock/paper/scissored who would do their vows first. Just one of many ways they made their day completely theirs. Their intimate city wedding is up on our blog now x
  • Fell in love with this feeling. We had just finished up some pics with Dee and her girls(and bridesman) pre ceremony and she was about to walk out to where her dad was waiting to take her to Emile. It was just a fleeting moment as she walked out of the house, but her face here just absolutely captivated me with all the happiness, contentment, nerves, and excitement it held.

  • So this is us...Partners in life, adventures and all things.

We met at a music festival, fell in love over our common passion for developing our own photos and many long and late night deep conversations about the world, life and pretty much everything in between.

Somehow that was 13 years ago, and those two arty alternative kids are married, have bunnies, a crazy two colour eyed cat called Bowie, a book collection too large to fit comfortably in our house and have somehow managed to piece together our love of photography and traveling the world together into our business of getting to document the love stories of awesome humans. And this is how we get to make our living? It’s so awesome it feels like cheating.

We love the shit out of weddings and getting the chance to share these amazing adventures with people. We get that letting people in to share something as intimate and personal as a marriage is a really big deal, and it’s something that never stops making us really stoked that people trust us enough to make their memories.

  • We do love a good reception razzle 💃🏽🍻
  • This love is fire 🔥
  • I remember so clearly from our own wedding the shock of how the ceremony was a such a blur as I was so swept up in all the emotion, looking at our photos helps take me back to that moment and those feelings. With any luck, this moment will be the same for Dee and Emile. Also, honestly, all you should want from your wedding is your person looking at you like this 😍
  • Next installment in our series of “small people big landscape”. What you can’t see: the mozzies, the very dodgy floating pier I was standing on to get this shot, the buzz of all of Christen and Peter’s guests getting ushered into the reception area while we stole one more post sunset shot of them.
  • I do love a good mama- daughter moment. Tanielle and Jamie’s wedding was jam packed full of family moments, which to us is just the best thing ever! Their wedding is up on our blog today xx
