“You have to see the sun rise in this place” – Mike woke me very early on the 21st December. I threw on some shorts, grabbed my camera and headed out to see the sun rise on the day he would marry the girl of his dreams. Sara is a young independent, beautiful Swedish lady with signature blonde hair and striking blue eyes, and Mike with a heart of gold and a man who marches to the beat of his own drum.
A minister, a photographer, some chickens, cows, horses and a host of other farm animals set the scene for an intimate wedding. In the mid-morning sunshine Sara walked down the isle to an expectant Mike waiting for her under some large trees.
Although Sara’s family were unable to make the trip out from Sweden, they were not far away in spirit. The rings they exchanged were hand-made by Sara’s father and the couple will now share their excitement with their families in South Africa and Sweden.
It was a photographer’s dream working with you guys. You were up for anything on this particularly hot day and you made my job really easy and fun.
Sara and Mike, thank you for picking me to share this – the most intimate of weddings – with the two of you.
