Oh, I am so excited for this couples wedding next year. Samantha and I have known each other for many years, our parents are friends and of course we are friends. So when Sam contacted me earlier this year and asked if I would be her wedding photographer – WOW, what an honour.

The Oribi Gorge Hotel, originally a farmhouse on a sugarcane plantation, the main hotel building dates back to the 1890’s. The original farmhouse on the edge of Oribi Gorge was converted into a quaint little hotel, boasting the very essence of old-world hospitality. Although the hotel has undergone major changes in the last decade, some things will never change… You will always be greeted with a heart-warming smile! It was no difference on our arrival, friendly staff greeted us.

We could not have asked for a better day – a perfect spring afternoon set the scene with a slight breeze to cool things down a little. Samantha and Jarrod were a little anxious at the beginning of the session but as the afternoon progressed they relaxed a we had great fun. Of course we had a spectacular sunset to end of the shoot.

Thanks Samantha and Jarrod for allowing me to create memories for you. I look forward to the wedding next year.
