Simone & Matthew @ Diamant Estate, Paarl

This was one of the weddings where I did my selects for the blog post and had just under 500 pictures to share! Thats when you know you have been apart of a very special and beautiful day! Simone and Matthew married at the beautiful Diamant Estate on one of the most perfect winters day Cape Town has probably ever seen. I was braced for thrashing rain and wind, but was met with incredible sunshine. Simone was an absolute delight to photograph and Matthew and his men..and of course his stunning best man, his sister sarah dressed to perfection in her Tux (!!!), were so much fun to be around and posed perfectly. The very talented Simone, designed her dress herself and her incredible mum, Dot, made it...and to this day its one of my favourite dresses i've had the pleasure of photographing. The bridesmaids looked like supermodels lined up beside Simone, and when she mentioned that she quite liked the fashion element in some of my pictures....we had a full on shoot going in the morning! Simone and Matthew, I wish you all the best for your adventures to Paris and for your future together. This was truly a fantastic day, surrounded by the most beautiful friends and family and I feel very lucky to have been included int he celebrations. Lots of Love, fee x
