Destination wedding Hudsons

Rosemin & Alcides


What were the chances of us actually getting Rosemin & Alcides enquiry for their destination wedding at Hudsons?  Considering we were wandering about the Himalayas in Nepal at nearly 4000 metres above sea level when they enquired,  probably pretty slim!  But thanks to the wonderful world of technology, we had WIFI available to us, and we were able to what’s app each other across the miles.  And how happy we are that we were able to do so and that we got to photograph this lovely couple’s wedding.

Rosemin and Alcides came all the way from Mozambique to have their destination wedding at Hudsons in Stellenbosch.  Cape Town put on a stunner of a day for the two of them along with their family and close friends.  It was a perfect wind still day in December.  This was our last wedding for the year.  The garden at Hudsons is always spectacular and with the florals in full bloom against the beautiful mountain backdrop beside the dam, it was just perfect.

After the ceremony was done, guests enjoyed canapes on the lawn while we went off to take the couple photos.  The candy table was particularly popular with the kiddies!

It was lovely getting to know Rosemin & Alcides a little better during their couple shoot.  We’d only met them very briefly before their big day.

In true Portuguese style there were several courses to the evening dinner!  We loved how the kids were involved in the speeches, and although we could not understand much of what was being said, it was very cute!

Thank you Rosemin & Alcides for choosing us to capture the special memories of your destination wedding at Hudsons.  Who knows, we may even see you in Mozambique sometime!  And thank you Hudsons for another great day working together!  It’s always a pleasure!
