Same sex Cape Town beach wedding
Nadhia & Ria
This same sex Cape Town beach wedding was pure bliss! How wonderful to get a glimpse into the lives of two people with so much heart and soul. And to top it all – to be able to witness how true love always wins in the end, no matter what.
THE SETTING FOR NADHIA & RIA’S SAME SEX CAPE TOWN BEACH WEDDING
Nadhia & Ria’s same sex Cape Town beach wedding was held at Monkey Valley Resort in Noordhoek. It was an absolutely glorious winter’s day in Cape Town. The sun was out, not a breath of wind and the turquoise water of Noordhoek beach made a stunning backdrop. It could not have been more perfect!
Close family and friends gathered out on the deck forming a circle around the couple. Each guest held a lantern representing their light and love for Nadhia and Ria’s journey ahead. What a lovely gesture. The ceremony was a real tearjerker, and the heartfelt vows were beautiful. There was loads of spontaneous laughter too! After the ceremony, guests enjoyed afternoon tea. There was such a laid back vibe, and it was so lovely to capture the precious moments between family and friends.
Monkey Valley Resort is just minutes away from the beach, so it seemed fitting we pop down to Noordhoek beach for sunset. What a stunning setting! The lagoon was clear as glass, and the sunlight golden. Nadhia and Ria love animals, and I am sure the furry beach goers could sense this, as quite a few of them popped over for a quick “hello.”
We love a couple who don’t mind getting a little bit of sand between their toes, and the bottoms of their wedding outfits wet. But nothing could prepare us for these two! Without a single second’s warning, they just took off into the waves! Much giggling and laughter ensued, and made for some really fun wedding photographs! This definitely was a Cape Town beach wedding like no other!
Thank you Nadhia and Ria for trusting us with your memories. It was an honour photographing your wedding at the lovely Monkey Valley resort!
