May Peace Follow You – Always
Each day holds a surprise.
But only if we expect it can we see, hear, or feel it when it comes to us. Let’s not be afraid to receive each day’s surprise, whether it comes to us as sorrow or as joy.
It will open a new place in our hearts, a place where we can welcome new friends and celebrate more fully our shared humanity.
The most beautiful things are not associated with money; they are memories and moments. If you don’t celebrate those, they can pass you by. Keeping secrets are part of the job. I was so excited to be able to capture the reactions of everyone with the announcement.
Kobus and Sonja got married on Saturday, 1 July 2017. A day that is suppose to be in the middle of the winter. But it was perfect, not too cold at all, but just cold enough for a fire. Close family and friends were there to celebrate with them. It was meaningful and above all it was joyful. I think it is save to say, if they could, they would do it all over again tomorrow but luckily they have the rest of their lives together.
The day began for both Kobus and Sonja with getting ready at Venue Nouveau, in Pretoria East where it was obvious that this was going to be a fun day for everyone involved! Sonja was dressed in an exquisite lace dress designed by Werner Day and her make-up was perfected by Melissa Bam. Friends serenaded them while enjoying champagne and a beautiful cake from The Baking Room.
It could not have been a more beautiful day.
It’s about those invisible moments that connect us with the people we love and it was lovely to be the one to capture those moments for you.
Thank you Kobus and Sonja, for making “The Girl With The Camera” part of your special day!
