Lavandou – Dirk + Odette Wedding
Dirk & Odette tied the knot at the lovely Lavandou Wedding Venue just outside Pretoria! This lovely couple met each other when they were only 15 years old at a local show in Transvalia, and have been together for the last 4 years. Even though they have know each other for so long, Dirk took some time asking Odette out on a date. He said that the day he did, it would be forever! Dirk proposed on Odette’s 30th birthday, which was the best present ever!
We arrived the morning of the wedding at the lovely Vivere Country House where the couple with their entourage got dressed, starting with the guys. The lads cleaned up well and we had a great time photographing Dirk and his groomsmen around the fantastic grounds Vivere had to offer.
We then spent the rest of the afternoon with the ladies, the bridesmaids all colleagues of Odette where they are all teachers. It was a very special moment when Odette’s father saw her for the first time all dressed and ready to meet the man of her dreams. As the wedding was held outside there were some nervous moments when the heavens opened up with rain to bless this special day! As we reached the venue the rain stopped and everyone could witness Odette walking down the tree-lined aisle with her dad to meet a very excited Dirk at the other end.
During the portrait session we had alot of fun with the enthusiastic entourage! We may not have had a sunset for the portrait sessions but we had amazing dramatic clouds as backdrop for this lovely couple. The rest of the evening was spent among family and friends and ended off with a night portrait shoot. I wish you guys all the best for your journey ahead, may you be blessed every step of the way!
