De Malle Meul Wedding Venue
Mariette & Jaco
Mariette & Jaco chose De Malle Meul Wedding Venue to promise forever to each other. Philadelphia is one of our favourite little dorpies to while away a lazy Sunday afternoon. It’s just down the road from our home.
De Malle Meul wedding venue was perfect for Mariette & Jaco’s small intimate wedding. We are finding more and more couples opting for this midweek option. Smaller weddings, good rates on venues (and photographers,) short and sweet and without all of the bells and whistles of a full wedding day. We find that most people who choose this option really value the people in their lives, and don’t loose focus on what a wedding day is fundamentally all about. And as a result, it seems they always yield images with heart and soul. They speak volumes of the people in them, and they are moments that will be treasured for many years to come we hope.
Ok, so I will share with you a little obsession. We adore brides who wear their hair loose on their wedding day. I cannot seem to pinpoint the reason, but it seems they are always the free spirited spontaneous ones. I don’t know if there is any truth in this, but it just seems too coincidental not be fact. That brings me to Mariette’s hair. Can we just take a moment to appreciate her ABSOLUTELY gorgeous locks. Just WOW!
Mariette & Jaco said their “We do’s” upstairs in the De Malle Meul chapel. There’s so much history and art related to this building. Do yourselves a favour and head out there for Sunday lunch and before or after delve into a little bit of history. You won’t be sorry!
We took a little drive up to the farm lands overlooking the town and had a small wander about through the village. It’s always tricky shooting in bright midday sun, but I think the soft Autumn light did help to soften things a little. And of course having a couple in front of your lenses who are mad about each other helps too!
Thank you, Mariette and Jaco for trusting us to make memories with you. We really loved shooting your wedding at De Malle Meul Wedding Venue. And thank you to the lovely ladies at De Malle who always look after us so nicely. Your kindness and hospitality never goes unnoticed, and we are so grateful for the way we are treated when shooting there.
