What a special occasion to shoot a 40th Wedding Anniversary of two people who still love each other so deeply, even after 40 years of marriage. Oom Stompie & Tannie Zettie decided to celebrated their 40th Wedding Anniversary with close friends and family on their family farm just outside Thabazimbi in South Africa. It was so nice to see them both walked “down the isle” by their 2 children, Su-Meri & Andrew, for which they’ve been a great example in life.
After the ceremony, we went for a drive around the farm to get some beautiful photos of this couple. Shooting in the Bushveld of South Africa is a slightly different ballgame than the Scottish Highlands… in South Africa you pray for rain and positively want it to rain just to cool down, and your number 1 priority is “watching out for snakes”. The rain came later that afternoon which meant we had a pretty moody sky for the photo session. And for those who wondered.. thankfully we didn’t have any snake encounters… this time!
Enjoy a few of the shoot’s highlights, and don’t forget to leave your comments below…
