Jaynie & Rudi celebrated their love for the see, the outdoors, adventure, and of course, each other, on a beautiful summers evening, surrounded by family and friends, at Oppiduin at Grootvlei Gasteplaas wedding venue in Lambertsbaai. Every detail was carefully picked or crafted by hand, either by the bride herself, or by someone special to the couple, which made this wedding especially personal.

"We met at a mutual friend of a friend’s house…  It was the end of December holiday and week before I started my matric year and Rudi ‘s  1st year in Varsity. We exchanged numbers and spend the whole night on the phone, till the early hours of the morning...6 months after that, he asked me out. I don’t even know how I passed gr.12. In our 7 and half year relationship, we have had an amazing adventure. So many firsts. A roller coaster of fun, laughs, road trips, silly fights, big fights, losses of loved ones, healing, being there through thick and thin and all over growing together."

I so enjoyed capturing this wedding for you guys. I felt like a treasured friend, and to witness your special day was a true privilege. Enjoy.

Rudi and I are truly blessed with such amazing family and friends that helped make our day super special. From Rudi’s friend Cobus, who gave all the wine as a wedding gift, the wonderful cake aunts, my brothers friends who basically did our wedding video for free, my cousin with all her calligraphy talents and  my wonderful mom who was on top of everything ALL the time. I got to wear the same floral grown on my wedding day that my mom wore 30 years ago on hers!
