An Oyster Box Wedding – My expectations were high for this one. Not only was it the wedding of one of the most sweetest, kind hearted and lovable couple I have met, but I was traveling from Cape Town to shoot at the renowned Oyster Box Hotel. And boy oh boy were my expectations met and exceeded. There is something about Durban that just excites me; the tropical weather, the people, the world’s best curry on every corner. Oh and not to forget the ever important light, it’s pretty fantastic too.

I met Abri and Natasha back in November last year when Abri contacted me to photograph his surprise proposal to Natasha. He flawlessly planned a surprise weekend trip from Johannesburg down to Franschhoek to pop the question. He really knows how to romance, and even I was swept away in it all.

The love these two share to so captivating to witness, you can see this on the faces of their friends and family. I must also give mention to the fantastic staff at the Oyster Box, the atmosphere and energy around is relaxed and efficient. Ginny, the Oyster Box co-coordinator, was a dream to work with and really knows how to pull off a wedding flawlessly and elegantly. I just loved working with all of you and cannot wait to do so again.

This post would not be complete without the mention of little Jasmine. Jasmine played a huge roll in both their engagement and their wedding and it wouldn’t have been the same without her wagging tail, wet nose and big toothy grin. Having Jasmine with them for these huge milestones in their relationship and life was vital and of first priority. (One of the main factors for their choice of the Oyster Box was that it is dog friendly. ) Sadly little Jasmine passed away a few days after their wedding but her memory lives on in Abri and Natasha’s heart and mine too. Rest well Jas, you are sorely missed.
