It was nearly a year prior to their amazing wedding that I met Nicola and Warren, and already then Nicola was one pumped up bride. As the days got closer things definitely intensified, because on the day she was beaming with a smile that aliens on Mars probably mistook for a new sun discovered in their solar system.

We started the day by shooting the grooms at the Radison Blu in Port Elizabeth and then off to the girls where they were getting ready. The wedding was a few days before Christmas and that only added to the seriously festive vibe that Warren & Nicola shared with their wedding guests. Their amazing wedding ceremony & reception were both held at La Coline in Port Elizabeth. And a more fun and vibrant wedding day no couple could wish for. The weather and light was perfect for shooting and for the bridal photography we ended up shooting in a little forest close to the venue.
It was a seriously amazing wedding photo shoot and the images speak for themselves. I always enjoy doing the post production as it gives me a chance to feel what it will be like for a couple to relive their wedding day. And its these moments that I am so aware of when I shoot. Capturing the right expression on someone at just the right time to get their unique personality as well as them being totally in the moment of what they are experiencing. I hate being in front of the camera and most people feel the same. So as soon as they are aware that they are being photographed little walls come up that they hide behind. So essentially I like to shoot behind these walls. And you always know when you’ve got it or when it’s been missed.
I really love the way the video came out, as Michele likes to say.. “it’s not done until it makes me cry”.
Well done to Warren & Nicola on a super cool and amazing wedding day in Port Elizabeth. I wish you guys all the best for the future and and hope you both remain as much in love as you are now for a severely long time. Also don’t be surprised if those aliens rock up at your door one day to looking for that new sun in solar system.
