Gingi & Jabulani
Our very first Bakenhof Wedding, and what an introduction it was! Think fabulous architecture, views for days and a couple to die for! Throw in a bunch of amazing service providers who transformed the space into something beautiful for Gingi & Jabulani, and you have a winning recipe.
Bakenhof Wedding venue is situated just outside Wellington. What a wonderful setting with views over the vineyards and mountains, no matter which direction you look in. It’s one of those amazing one stop wedding venues that offers not only a wedding chapel, but accommodation options too.
Moving on to the gorgeous couple. Our day started off with Jabulani. We loved his refreshingly different wedding attire. Not often you get to see such swag, in the form of a leather waistcoat and bow tie. Other wonderful additions were his engraved belt and personalized cuff links.
Gingi had some special treats up her sleeve too. She basically had 3 wedding outfits. One was her traditional attire that she wore to her labola party. This made an appearance towards the end of the reception, but we got to do some shots of her in it before she put on her wedding dress. Next up was her wedding gown for the ceremony, and finally her evening reception dress. Gingi also made history in our books. We’ve shot close on 500 weddings, and never ever have we had a bride confident enough to go completely au natural, without even a stitch of make up. HUGE respect! And who needs make-up when your beautiful smile and bubbly personality shine through like Gingi’s does?
What a treat photographing Gingi & Jabulani during their couple shoot session. Very little direction was needed from our side. They were total naturals! Let’s not forget to mention the wonderful reception. What super energy and vibes filled with moments of joy!
Thank you Gingi & Jabulani for trusting us with your most precious day. We loved every minute of your Bakenhof wedding.
