This was my first Cradock wedding at a venue called Blomfontein. The venue itself is about 30 minutes or so from Cradock.
So it was at Blomfontein that Gordon & Bianca decided to tie the knot. It was a beautiful day, perfect weather for a perfect wedding. They decided to do the order of their wedding day slightly different. We began with the bridal photos, bouncing between Gordon & Bianca getting ready in their separate locations, and then it was off to do the bridal photography. Blomfonteon has beautiful locations for wedding photography, regardless of the theme of your wedding you’ll find something that will work for you. We started on a hill with a magical view overlooking the Eastern Cape mountains. I tried to keep the wedding photos quite colourful as Bianca had chosen quite vibrant theme for her wedding day. Once the photos were done it was then time for the wedding ceremony itself and then straight into the reception. I have to admit this is the first time that I have ever danced at a wedding where I have been the photographer. I normally decline but the bride herself would not take no for an answer so eventually I had to obey her wishes and shake a leg or two. It was a truly fantastic wedding. The wedding guests carried the party into the early hours of the morning and I’m sure there were quite a few people who woke up to music still playing in their heads. I can highly recommend Blomfontein as a venue if you are thinking of having a Cradock wedding. They offer accommodation and the dirt road that leads to the wedding venue is kept pretty good condition.
