Gerald and Alta are both from South Africa, Gerald from Benoni, and Alta from Port Elizabeth, but there love story is entirely based in London. They met and fell in love half way across the world, roots firmly based in South Africa. Apparently it took Gerald a while to work up the courage to ask Alta out. It was like one of those love stories were everyone knows the couple should be together, but neither one of them seem to take the leap until the very end of the movie.

Their wedding was held at Opstal in the small, but beautiful wine farm town of Rawsonville in the Western Cape. Alta got ready at the beautiful De Eike guesthouse which was transformed into a  lovely bridal room.
The reception was a classic affair.

I loved photographing this wedding. Being about 6 months pregnant at the time, the couple was so concerned and caring, and the guests, and even the lovely wedding planner at Opstal were so accommodating and wanted to help wherever they could.
I was touched by the kindness of the people at this wedding. Thank you everyone!
