A Wedding in South Africa

June 22, 2017

Last February, I had the great pleasure to fly to South Africa for a wedding shoot.
One of the many things I love about my job is that it makes me travel 😀
I stayed there during a short week and took pictures everyday.
Before the wedding day, I followed the guests during their activities: discovering the beautiful landscapes and animals of South Africa as you will see in the pics below.

Unfortunately, to respect the newlyweds’ privacy, I can’t share a lot of pictures of their wedding.
But it was a brilliant, fun and wonderful wedding to photograph.
They did a marvelous ceremony under a giant tree during the sunset, completely cut off from the rest of the world.
The African style deco was really different from the other weddings I saw and yes, I crossed the way of a snake when I was taking pictures (I have to admit it wasn’t funny in the moment :-p) !!!

After the dessert and to start the party, there was a fantastic display of fireworks!

Have a nice weekend!
