Weddings by Nicola and Glen

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – South Africans are quietly taking over the world. Not least the wedding world either (*cough cough Colin Cowie*). And I often meet amazing service providers here in the UK who are making a big name for themselves. I love this – not just because I’m proudly Saffa, but because all of that talent is often available to brides and grooms in SA as well as abroad. I mean, we all love to go home, right? And with the summer season in the UK being different, you can often get an amazing international (homegrown) talent on their holidays (just like our amazing local photographers often travel during the SA winter) – many of them even have a South African side to their businesses. How cool is that? This is the case with today’s featured photographers, who have been longtime Twitter pals and supporters of SBB, and whom I am delighted to introduce to you properly today. SO… meet Weddings by Nicola and Glen! Nicola (from SA) and Glen already have a thriving business based in the Cotswolds (but shooting all over the UK) – just take a look at their site to see the dreamy country celebrations they have shot, in a style that’s a lovely combination of intimacy and grandeur. I can just imagine the shots they would take amid the Cape scenery…

Glen and Nicola have a specific vision with regards to the South African ‘branch’ of their business. With a focus on Cape Town and the months of November to February, the great thing about working with the couple if you are UK-based is that you can meet them ahead of time in person, and have them shoot your engagement, so you feel totally comfortable with them on the big day. I know this can be an issue for brides planning from abroad, so it’s a great way to handle feeling a bit distant from all the preparations. But, as always, images speak louder than words, so I’ll let them tell you the rest of the story…
