This luxury, bespoke wedding took place at the upmarket Marine Hotel in Hermanus.  A perfect backdrop to a romantic wedding.

Alex was one of the most demure, shy brides that I have photographed and the camera loved her and so did I!luxury bespoke wedding decorUnfortunately due to strong winds, the planned outside ceremony had to be  indoors.

Luckily the team in charge of the decor (aka the brides mother) quickly changed their plans and created a beautiful set-up in one of the hotel reception rooms.

A Princess Grace lookalike!

The bride of this luxury, bespoke wedding, Alex, was absolutely regal and reminded me of the late Princess Grace of Monaco.  She exuded a serene elegance that was breathtaking.

Love finds a way!

Alex left Cape Town to go study at the prestigious Cambridge University in the UK.  She is currently doing a PHD in Film and Screen studies!  While studying her Masters, she met this cute Australian boy, Carl, and to begin with, they were just friends.

“It was pretty inevitable, we love so many of the same books, films, art… he was my favorite person to talk to and it was extremely hard to resist him. Altogether in our MPhil we were a class of 24 and somehow it always felt like the he was the only person in the room. I guess the rest is pretty much history!”
