Kapama Wedding: Anneltje + Marcus

One of my favourite things about plugging into weddings is that I get to experience inspirational places and people that uproot me from my daily flip, for a day or five. For a few hours I am just a dude with a camera looking for stuff that looks super cool to me. This time around I got to document the Kapama wedding of Anneltje and Marcus from the UK. I think between these two super beings, this will be the closest I would ever come to meet the brilliance of a Zaha Hadid or a Carlo Verdone. Proxies that inspire. Like Anneltje and Marcus. I love that.

Anneltje and Marcus’s celebration took place at Kapama Game Lodge and I have to say the quality of this space just blew my mind.

You are at the right place.

Superbly done Hannes!
I think you managed to capture Anneltje’s theme she wanted to portray on this day, perfectly: the travelling to Africa, her Gatsby-glam-era look and feel were well supported by her friends and family and forever captured in time.
The photos made me smile looking at the expressions and smiles, a man taking a photo using his smartphone has a remarkably outdated feel to it! The moment between her and the man in the hat seems special, not meant for others to hear. The emotion shared by friends and family; the couple holding hands, the guests taking photos while you shoot back at them, the textures of lace and leather on wood and metal. Mirrors reflecting the bride, laughter. Just stunning. Well done.
Anneltje and Marcus knew what they wanted and you exceeded the expectations.

Hannes, words cannot describe…!

It is not often that I am speechless, but today I am/was. Lucky for me, these tell our storey and capture our day so beautifully, my words would only be superfluous.

That said, a big THANK YOU, from the bottom of our hearts, is definitely a necessity. We absolutely love them!

Marcus - October 14, 2014 - 7:32 pm

It was an honour to have you capture our African adventure wedding, Hannes. Your artistry and talent perfectly captured the intimacy of what was our most wonderful day. Marcus.

Hermien Klopper - October 15, 2014 - 7:24 am

The photos are absolutely amazing, Hannes. Each one made me smile and remember the day all over again. As Ronel said, you captured the day perfectly, the love and friendship of family and friends sharing this very special day with two amazing people.
Thank you for the wonderful memories.

Grand Dédale Wedding: Sumay + Sarel

Layered and inspirational as a Hakaan Yildirim creation, this Grand Dédale wedding re-wrote the definition of: never give up. When you listen Sarel’s story on how he rebuilt his life to a massive success after being dealt an absolute double minus (more than once), and then to discover Sumay that is cut from the same block, is nothing but super amazing. It’s the type of story that people pay to listen to. The type of story that gives you more grunt in your bones than the strongest caffeine kick. I always count my lucky stars, but discovering and working with insanely stunning courageous beautiful people, such as Sumay and Sarel are the purest of blessings.

A bit off topic: While I was in Wellington I stayed at Jacaranda Wines. I usually don’t give a mention of the places where I stay, but in this instance I promised Birgit I would. The reason? A long long time ago, way before I ever knew much about the Western Cape, I was told stories by a very special person (still for me to this day) of just how wonderful a spread in this part of the world can be. What I experienced at Jacaranda reminded me of that very special person as I was having my good share of sweet figs, rare cheeses, thickly crusted home backed breads, plenty of sweet fruit served with a variety of organic proteins, and of course lots quality conversations in between. Jacaranda Wines is a highly recommended stay.

Find your treasure chest and fill it with memories.

Love the uniqueness of every Wedding, Hannes. Another great set of images; so different from the set before and yet just as brilliant.
