Max and Lauren had their South African wedding at Norbourgh in Port Elizabeth on a very warm summer day in December! Max is from Germany and Lauren from South Africa; they met here but currently live in Germany. Their wedding was a mixture of fun German and South African traditions, relaxed afternoon canapés, jazz music and laughter, all in an exquisite setting. Norbough is honestly one of the most beautiful venues for photos; it’s set on a large, open plot surrounded by trees and complete with a pond and bridge. I could have taken photos for hours, especially since Lauren looked so beautiful and relaxed, and her and Max looked so happy! The decor was simple and elegant, with fresh roses and antique silverware. Lauren and Max are both such caring people, and were a pleasure to photograph! Everybody looked like they were having a great time, and it was a privilege to share in their special day. After the heat of the day, the evening was breathless, with an incredible full moon was on display – the perfect end to a lovely wedding.

My three favourite things from this wedding: Lauren’s hairpiece, the beautiful venue and the relaxed feeling of the wedding.
