Holly and Joshua’s choice of the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands for their wedding set the stage for a truly enchanting celebration. As I attempt to capture my experience with this remarkable couple in words, I can’t help but feel that mere text may fall short of conveying the depth of their story. Our first meeting took place against the picturesque backdrop of Black Leopard Camp, a stone’s throw from my own abode, on a crisp January afternoon. The images from that encounter, which I’m excited to share, left an indelible mark on my mind. Here is the link.
From the Outset
It was evident that Holly and Joshua were a breed apart. Their essence radiated vibrant hues. As if life itself was intertwined with their very being (and yes, I can say that – after all, this is my blog, right?).
They exuded a warmth that could thaw the coldest of days, yet possessed a coolness that beckoned one to lay back on the grass and simply unwind. Like two distinct patterns harmoniously woven into a singular masterpiece, they epitomised uniqueness. Every facet seamlessly connected, creating a fabric of strength and endurance.
The Wedding Day
The day mirrored their authentic selves to perfection. An ode to their union with each other and with the divine, the celebration was shared with cherished friends and family. The splendid setting of Abingdon Wine Estate, where they gathered under cascading vines, added an extra layer of beauty to the day. This joyous occasion stood as a sunlit interlude between rainy days, a true blessing.
In deference to the adage “a picture is worth a thousand words,” I invite you to let the visuals take you on a journey through their story. May you relish every moment captured.
