30 Mar ARTISTIC WEDDING | PORTCHIE | TALITHA AND CHARLES NAPIER
Artistic wedding | Portchie | Talitha and Charles Napier
Talitha and Charle’s met online and it was not long after having met that they realized they were destined to be.
Before their wedding I was privileged and blessed with the opportunity to capture their engagement session which was a great way for me to get to know this special couple and their love story. The first part of their engagement shoot took place at the Bo-Kaap, a hidden treasure which is a very poplar attraction for tourists visiting Cape Town. We then headed to Bootlegger’s, a cozy and very popular coffee shop in Sea Point where we completed the second half of the engagement shoot.
Their wedding was held at Porchie’s House in Stellenbosch. Porchie is an extremely well known and world renowned artist.
Talitha and Charle’s tied the knot on the morning of the 25 of February, a beautiful summer’s day in Stellenbosch. I love small and intimate wedding’s and personally, morning wedding’s are my absolute favourite!
The atmosphere is completely different and we were left with ample time to decide where the perfect place would be to capture the newly wedded couple during the golden hour. Talitha and Charle’s agreed that Stellenbosch Nature Reserve had the perfect setting with an enchanted and romantic feel.
Their wedding was very different to your ordinary wedding. Their approach was very unique and daring. They knew that Porchie’s House would be the perfect venue to celebrate their wedding to emphasis their love for art. Their theme was extremely vibrant, colourful and fresh, yet so stylish and elegant.
One of the highlights of this special day was capturing Talitha with her sisters on the morning just before her wedding. She has four sisters and each sister had a special role to play on her special day. It was so lovely to witness the inseparable bond that Talitha has with her sisters.
One thing I really love about this couple is their love for art and how they incorporated it into their wedding in a stylish and elegant way. They are very modern and trendy and all of their ideas and approach to doing things are unique.
Thank you Talitha and Charle’s for a beautiful artistic wedding. I love visiting Stellenbosch and exploring different venues. Portchie’s House was definitely the perfect place to host your beautiful wedding and it definitely reflected who you are and your love for art.
You are such a beautiful and loving couple and I am honored to have captured your special day.
Thank you for believing in me and trusting me as your wedding photographer.
May the Lord continue to bless your journey and marriage ahead.
Love Riaan West xXx
