I photographed Kristin & Swen’s romantic elopement last year on Llandudno beach.
I remember that day clearly. When I walked into the room where they were getting ready, they handed me a bag of gifts filled with stunning white Ikea photo frames and sweets! That was a good start, I mean who doesn’t like being spoilt?
They live in Germany, but were back in South Africa on vacation, and we met up again for a couple shoot around Cape Town. Nick, from “Go-Go Tours” was our guide for the morning, and drove us to all our destinations. He kept us laughing and filled us in on interesting facts about Cape Town.
Our first stop was Llandudno beach. We had soft light and whispy clouds and the beach was empty. When they were married on the beach, they had left an engraved lock attached to a pole, as a mememto, so being back there and seeing the lock, was really special and nostalgic. We drove over Chapman’s Peak and into Kalk Bay, stopping along the way. Kalk Bay, is one of my favourite parts of Cape Town. With it’s mix of quirky, Bohemian and antique shops nestled in-between quaint Victorian architecture, and fisherman working on their colourful boats in the harbour, it is easy to fall in love with this charming village on the coast of False Bay.
