Garden Route Cafe Gannet The Ochre Venue: Bjorn & Susan


Susan planned every little thing to the finest detail for this beautiful day.  Well done Susan, it truly was an unforgettable day.  From Susan’s first email inquiry I just knew that I want to be part of her and Bjorn’s big day.  Although the weather was not ideal to start with, we were surely blessed with some gorgeous light!  It is things like these that makes each couple’s day unique.

May you be blessed in this awesome life ahead!

Mossel Bay Wedding – Henk & Madie


What I loved about this day was the challenge to capture creative portraits midday. Working with such a stunning couple made it easy! Congratulations Henk and Madie. Thank you for sharing your day with me and for treating me more like a guest than a service provider!  Well done Gabby you did an awesome job as make up artist, Madie looked beautiful.  It was yet again awesome to work with Janine and the team at Café Gannet

Mossel Bay Wedding The Gannet – Andre & Bianca


Janine, from Cafe Gannet, contacted me late in September asking if I am available for a wedding on 7 November at their wedding venue.  This was the last open Saturday for the year!  So glad I was booked, this wedding was stunning.  Andre and Bianca organised everything in 7 weeks, well done!  Thanks to the awesome teamwork of  Fancy Functions and the staff at Cafe Gannet, the venue was set in a record time, perfect to the finest detail. The wedding cake was gorgeous!  Working with this stunning couple truly was a pleasure, Andre is a real joker and Bianca a dream bride to work with.  Thank you to my dear friend Malanie for once again being such a super assistent, keeping track of everything! I enjoyed every minute of this wedding and hope that you will treasure these memories.

Garden Route Wedding Mossel Bay Cafe Gannet – Stefan & Telana


What a day!  So many emotions, so many beauty.  This was a day long waited for and Stefan and Telana experienced their wedding day in it’s fullest with family and friends to share in their joy.  Telana truly was a stunning bride and it was such a pleasure to share this beautiful couple’s wedding day.  Everybody involved in this wedding truly did an awesome job and I know that Stefan and Telana could not be more pleased.  The beautiful Maryke Deacon, from Deacon Collection, made everything come together as their wedding-planner, decor was supplied by Fancy Functions in Mossel Bay, Comien Redelinghuys from Good Golly Studio supplied the stationary and the beautiful flowers was the work of Sandra de Freitas.  The bride was in the capable hands of makeup artist Maureen from LOVE.IT.  The Ocre venue at Cafe Gannet was the ideal venue for this wedding and Janine Shippen was constantly keeping an eye on everything.  Well done to all for making this such a stunning occasion.
