Pretty pretty sooo pretty! What a joy to have been able to film Larren & Ana-Paulas wedding!

What I loved about their day

*That it was right here in Swellendam and we did not have to travel!  Ana-Paula’s parents own the Swellengrebel hotel here in Swellendam. Their reception was held there and all their guests were staying in the hotel! How awesome is that!

*The beautiful venue they had their wedding ceremony at Jan Harmsgat which is nested between the mountains and pretty trees all around…it was truly magical! Also loved the cross they had made with all the pretty flowers on.

* The very cute flower girls and ring bearer boys!

* The loads of laughs we had during their friend’s photo sessions…it really adds to a wedding day joy!

*For their couple photo session we went to the very spot where they got engaged! Down by the river under the big tree! They also had to most amazing golden sunset!

*Their reception was filled with lots of laughter and fun! They had the single men play musical chairs to win the garter! What an awesome idea! Was sooo fun! The dancing also never stopped! From traditional Portuguese dancing, to breaking out in crazy dance moves on Harlem shake. The cutest of course was the little flower girls and ring bearers…they did not stop dancing!

* Plus a very good friend wrote them a song…and sang it…i just love it when friends get creative with ways of speeches and blessings. Love that song!

* Most beautiful moments for me was: Ana-Paula’s excitement after putting on her dress, Larren’s face when he saw her walking down the aisle, their first dance (they danced on This time from August Rush movie (was the first movie they saw together) How special!

And just like the pastor said….it was an honour and privilege to be part of their wedding day…because they are such beautiful people and dear Christian believers.
