My first wedding since we’ve relocated to the South Coast. I can’t believe it has been almost a year since touching down in this part of the world. It has been one heck of a year, and when the opportunity to do my first South Coast wedding decided to make itself available, I was all over it like a rash.
Sam we know because she spends a lot of time with our youngest. Allan I have never met before the wedding day, but as soon as I met him knew exactly why Sam is getting married to the bloke.
Palm Manor is where it all went down, and with its white-washed walls, palm trees and view over the Indian Ocean I had to pinch myself to not be fooled that I am not at an exotic location on some distant shore. To top it all off were some great views over Port Shepstone Golf Course and the Umzimkulu River.
Sam and Allan timed the service to perfection, and with the family photos and other formalities done, old Spike was hitting all sorts of angles and delivering some dreamy, thick light. We zipped all over, starting at the golf course (and getting chased away), on the beach, under the bridge, and at the old train yard.
For two people that claim to be camera shy, Sam and Allan produced some great shots. Being in love the way they are did help, and canoodling in front of the camera had to be easier.
South Coast weddings…I reckon I can get used to this…
