07 Dec JONKERSHOEK STELLENBOSCH | SIMONE AND JOACHIM
Jonkershoek Wedding | Simone and Joachim | Wedding Photographers Cape Town
Over the last year, I have made a very dear and amazing friend in the wedding industry, Luke Krone. Luke is well known for delivering High-End weddings, simply because He gives weddings His everything!!!
Luke, phoned me one day and said he wants me to capture the wedding of the year!!! A Jonkershoek wedding, a stunning location for a couple that is the salt of the Earth (Simone and Joachim).
Luke also mentioned that Simone and Joachim want’s Justin Sullivan, a very famous and well know documentary photographer to work alongside me to help capture their beautiful day. I was ecstatic, Justin is a brilliant photographer and I looked forward to meet Him and it was a huge honour to work with Him!!! Please go and look at his work on Social media, It’s phenomenal!!!
Simone and Joachim’s Jonkershoek wedding is definitely the wedding of the year!!!! in a wedding photographers life-time, one will probably come across a wedding Like this, once in your lifetime. Everything about the wedding is remarkable, the attention to detail, location, people, speeches, wedding team and so much more!!!
Hopefully you will be able to depict from the images to reveal the true heart and nature of how amazing this wedding truly is. It was also a very special wedding for me, due to the fact that I love Styling and believe it’s of of my greatest passions as a Fine Art Wedding photographer. Joachim’s mother is a true source of inspiration and the Salt of the Earth. Her house is a museum and so many artefacts, painting and collectable artefacts and ornaments.
the Morning Started of with loads of pretty flowers and the hair and make-up kicked off at de Zalze. Justin Sullivan and myself met prior the wedding to brainstorm on how we would capture this amazing wedding, i spent the morning with Simone and the bridesmaids and Justin spent the morning with Joachim and the Best men, we later met again at the wedding ceremony.
In the meeting prior the wedding with Simone and Joachim, they said that they want their wedding to be different and unique. We met at Showroom in Stellenbosch and i was amazed about the incredible hospitality and comfort Simone and Joachim put forth. This Hospitality carried through to their wedding and it is within their very nature to celebrate, have fellowship with friends and family and at the same time bestowing incredible hospitality, love and kindness.
This characteristic was also present during Joachims speech, that was very heartfelt and moving. Joachim did something that i have never seen a groom do before. during His speech, He ran over to His mother and Father and gave them a huge hug of appreciation and love. Joachim even did this just before Simone arrived before the ceremony commenced. It was a amazing to witness His love for His parents.
The Jonkershoek wedding of Simone and Joachim is truly one of my favourite weddings, I loved everything about their wedding.
To Joachim and Simone, thank you for the wedding of a life time. You are a true inspiration as a bridal couple and thank you for the wonderful example on how to bestow hospitality, love and kindness to family and friends.
