Werner and Yolandie were a young couple from Gauteng that decided to have a classic Cape St Francis wedding in the Eastern Cape. Their wedding ceremony and reception were held on the beach near Seal Point – and what a day it was. Barely a breath of wind and under perfectly clear blue skies the two of them said “I do” to each other. The ocean was also just to perfect on the day and before we knew it the couple were in the water having their bridal photos taken. Most of the bridal photos were taken at the Seal Point Light House, which is a photographic location that always delivers beautiful and interesting shots. If you are having a Cape st Francis wedding consider it as a photographic location as it is also quite sheltered from the wind when it blows from the west.
I even used my mothers old fold up bicycle for some of these Cape st Francis wedding images. The wedding video also came out really great, shooting video on the beach is always a headache, I am always so scared that sand is going to get into my gear but fortunately the wind stayed away fro the day.
I really enjoyed the wedding shoot as the couple were up for anything, and for the post production I went for a semi bleached out look to give the feel of Polaroids with slightly washed out colours.
I wish you both all the best for the future and thanks for a really great Cape st Francis wedding… and a great great day on the beach 🙂
