Hidden Valley Wedding

Laura & Emlyn

This was our second Hidden Valley Wedding.  It certainly is one of the most beautiful wedding venues we’ve been privileged to photograph a wedding at.  The estate has the majestic Helderberg Mountains as a backdrop and there are rolling hills of olive groves and vines for as far as the eye can see.  You can even see Table Mountain from there.

Laura and Emlyn chose soft coloured décor creating a natural feel with fynbos and proteas.  This, along with the slate under plates blended perfectly with the beautiful surroundings.  Fairy lights are always pretty, and as the sun set they added such a romantic mood.

We could not have asked for a more beautiful couple for this Hidden Valley wedding.  We already knew this when we met Laura and Emlyn during their engagement shoot.  They are one of the most gentle and intimate couples that we have worked with.The girls got ready at Soverby Guest House on the Annandale Road.   Laura’s talented friend did her make up for her.  Laura had her nearest and dearest around her.    The Autumn leaves made a lovely backdrop and Laura looked absolutely breathtaking in her Maggie Sottero wedding gown.

The ceremony was held on the lawn next to the lake.  We love outdoor ceremonies, as you have so much more space to circulate and the added bonus of natural light.

Guests enjoyed drinks and canapes on the deck.  The views are truly spectacular and one of the best spots to watch an Autumn sunset.  Laura and Emlyn look so good through the lens.  The stunning late afternoon light was picture perfect.  We were literally in photography heaven.

Thank you, Laura and Emlyn for picking us to photograph your lovely Hidden Valley wedding.  We could not have asked for a better way to end of our busy wedding season!

Viva la Vida!
