I can’t think of a more perfect shoot to share with you today, as we head into the Easter weekend. Easter has kind of sneaked up on me this year, but I’ve decided to take tomorrow off (for once) and try to switch off and relax a bit. Before I do, I’m so excited to share this spring styled engagement shoot from awesome photographer Louise Vorster with you. Best of all, the bride-to-be Nicole is a huge fan of SouthBound Bride – which obviously makes us a big fan of hers – especially since she pulled together such an adorable set-up to celebrate her upcoming marriage to fiance Andre. I am especially smitten by the little chicks – aren’t they the cutest? I know that Easter isn’t really spring in SA, but if it gives you an excuse to grab your loved one and set up a super sweet pastelly country style picnic, I say do it. And even better if you can get a photographer like Louise to capture it all perfectly.
Louise also sent over Andre and Nicole’s love story:
We met at work, a little more than three and a half years ago. After three months we went on our first date, and after three years of dating André proposed to me on a weekend away in the Drakensberg. He had planned a romantic weekend away for us. We booked into Cleopatra Mountain Farmhouse, beautiful scenery and food to die for! On the Saturday morning André surprised me with a helicopter trip! On the top of White Mountain he went down on one knee with the most beautiful ring I have ever seen (he chose it himself).
