Marcel & Zandrie | Wedding | Inimitable Wedding Venue

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 1 Cor 13:4-5

There is a hype at the moment. Everybody I know doing weddings want to shoot at Zavion Kotze’s new wedding venue, Inimitable Wedding Venue, and I can definitely see why! It’s absolutely stunning! And the service is impeccable!

This wedding is also super special to Zavion, because this wedding was one of the first weddings booked at his wedding. Tina, Zandrie’s mom, said they booked the venue even before it was finished, and they just knew it’s going to be beautiful…and their calculated risk paid off! All I can say is wow. As a photographer having this gorgeous venue as a backdrop makes my life super simple…I can point the camera in any direction and you are almost guaranteed to have a gorgeous photo!

Wow, I dont have enough words to descibe how special and how beautiful this wedding was. Marcel and Zandrie are completely sold out to Jesus and His love was so evident at the wedding! I praise God for allowing me to meet these amazing people and for this amazing opportunity to capture their love story!

All the weddings I cover are emotional and special, but this one was so close to my heart! Marcel waited 7 years before he kissed his bride, and they knew from the beginning they were meant for each other. And WOW…..I absolutely LOVED how the parents prayed for them before the wedding…I mean Marcel and Zandrie stood back-to-back (without seeing each other), and held hands, and their parents formed a circle around them to pray for them! Teary stuff…

And walking down the aisle is quite a long walk. Normally brides sort off run down the aisle and I get zero chance to play around with creative shots, but this was different. I love my new mirror cellphone case, which allow me to create super cool reflection shots. It was also super emotional for Marcel, I mean he completely lost it for a second or two and luckily his dad managed to calm him. This was the most emotional groom I have seen this far, but it shows how much Zandrie but also the responsibility of having her as his bride means to him. Again…teary stuff!

Another highlight for me was they washed each others feet during the ceremony, just like Jesus did for his disciples. Wow, laying the foundation of serving each other no matter the cost! Its so hard doing exactly this in real life, and laying the first stone is so special…well done to the both of you!

I normally walk around during the couple shoot, and get many aspects of the wedding venue covered in the photos, because I think it’s important as part of the story telling, but I love it when venues use the photos afterwards to show off their venue. But during Marcel and Zandrie’s wedding I got caught up in taking the bulk of the photos in front of these 2 trees which was dressed in the most gorgeous orangey autumn colours!

Thank you Nina for second shooting on the day! I loved every minute of having you there!

A huge shout out to Pro Albums. They did their guest album at short notice and everybody at the wedding commented on the quality! Thank you Farhan!

Enough said for now…here’s the photos.

Please leave a comment at the end…a little love can go a long way!
