I met Grant and Barbara for the first time virtually due to our nationwide lockdown at the time. I then got to meet them in person for the first time at their engagement shoot – to which Barbara introduced me to a marvellous gem all the way in Simonstown!  

Their wedding day seemed to have been set for a relatively safe date considering that they booked me in mid 2020 and their wedding was to take place end of January, 2021. 

Their plans didn’t quite work out the way they had planned, but they decided to elope at this gorgeous venue, Dunstone Manor in Wellington. 

PS. This venue is highly recommended! But enough of this intro, let’s dive into their images. 

During our meetings Barbara and I basically had to persuade Grant to have some images taken of him getting ready. Just a few images, we said. 

When I arrived at Barbara’s room – I fell in love! The large vintage windows allowed so much light into this high ceiling room that screamed elegance. 

Needless to say, the room didn’t compare to the love that was shared.

On this day I learnt that Barbara actually used to be a ballerina, for many years! She brought her ballerina shoes with so that she could capture a part of her journey on her wedding day.

Being able to capture as someone from the outside, I can genuinely say I’ve seen so much love and happiness amongst the guests and especially Barbara and Grant. Barbara was practically skipping around all day! 

Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to capture your day – your wedding day. It was not your original plan, but it certainly didn’t feel less than. This day was intimate, filled with love and passion. 

May God bless your beautiful covenant Mr & Mrs October.
