Best chocolate dessert ever... Vergelegen Wedding

Allan and Hanelle had their wedding reception at Vergelegen Estate in Somerset West.  This was my first  wedding I photographed at Vergelegen.  I have to say that I was really impressed with this wedding venue.  Stunning venue, Beautiful views, Great service and FANTASTIC FOOD!!! 

Allan and Hanelle wanted to do a part of the couple photo session before the ceremony because there were not enough time between the ceremony and the reception to do all the different photographs.  This gave me the opportunity to photograph the FIRST LOOK.

Hope you enjoy these photos as much I enjoyed that Chocolate dessert :)

First look...
The following 5 photos were part of their first look moment.  Some special moments between Allan and Hanelle. 

After the first look we did 1 part of the couple photo session because there were not enough time after the ceremony due to the sun setting so early in winter.  

 End of our first photo session...

Our second photo session ...

I just love the following 2 photos... Father looking at dis daughter.

THE VERY BEST CHOCOLATE DESSERT IN MY LIFE!!!!  I have been to a lot of weddings and I love my sweet desserts, so, yes, I never miss out on something sweet, BUT, after almost 300 weddings this must be the BEST ever!

    1. Dankie, Anne-Marie, ons was beslis baie tevrede met alles, en my ma en suster het baie van hulle grimering gehou! Ek was mal oor my hare - wens ek kon dit altyd so mooi kry soos wat jy dit laat lyk het. :)
