Railway Romance Couple Shoot by As Sweet As Images

There’s just something about the railway, isn’t there? It’s that sense of old world style romance, I think. I’ve always adored them (minus my five years of endless commuting to Oxford, to be fair), and one day I would just love to do an Orient Express-style railway journey of epic proportions. Well, that old world romance also made the train yard a gorgeous backdrop for this adorable couple shoot by the fab As Sweet As Images. With Riette’s lace dress and Steve’s vintage blazer as a stylish nod to yesteryear, you can almost imagine them heading off on their honeymoon travels on the Grand Tour of Europe.Read More

Real Wedding in Matjiesfontein {Vasthi & Lourens}

Happy Friday, folks! You know, I see a lot of Victorian country vintage being in this industry at the moment. Some days, I think I may have seen every bit of vintage I may ever want to. And then I come across a wedding that embraces the olde look so beautifully that my love of lace is renewed. Today’s wedding is one of those. Vasthi and Lourens chose the romantic village of Matjiesfontein for their destination wedding, just two and a half hours from Cape Town, but about a hundred years back in time. The town has a fabulous history tied in with the railways, and is immediately evocative of colonial South Africa, so it was absolutely perfect for the vintage vibe they wanted to create. Look out for their mason jar candle invitations (LOVE 3D invites!) and some of my favourite country florals ever, not to mention the bride and groom’s outfits! Gorgeous. Images are by the wonderful Judy Stofberg of Just Judy Photography, and she has totally nailed the spirit of this wedding in her pictures, which to me is always the mark of a great photographer. Hope this makes your day, just as it has mine!Read More
