Trips to Dullstroom are always a little more interesting than most destinations. Its a part of the country that you can’t really compare to anywhere else. The weather can change 10 times in an hour or you can have cloud and mist for days on end. The rolling green hills and dirt roads seem like such an open invitation to escape the world but at the same time you can’t help but want to be creative in it’s surrounds. The Silver Sixpence is situated right in the heart of Dullstroom. A few bumpy dirt roads and mud patches later and you arrive at this amazing venue!
Threatened by rain literally the whole day, neither James or Joanne were worried. All they wanted to do was tie that knot. The rest of us though, frantically planning, running around, trying to decide whether or not the clouds above,that were constantly being piled onto each other, were going to crash the beautiful forest setting that The Silver Sixpence has created. For a moment it was touch and go when those first few drops fell, but these two just kept smiling and held their cool. Nothing mattered. They were going to get married and it didn’t matter how.
It couldn’t have happened better. The ceremony in the forest was magical. The mist that rolled almost like it was ordered by the push of a button. Even their little mascot Cotton Tail, who decided to photo bomb where he could, was perfect. The day just puzzled itself together and made the story of this wedding that much more interesting.
Jo and James are two amazing people. So kind-hearted and mischievous at the same time, these two have a big future ahead. So happy I was there to capture this memory and I look forward to hearing about more.
A big thanks go out to Johan from J&N Wedding Films for all his help on the day as my second photographer.
