Ben and Nikki
A Summer Harvest Feast In The Gardens Of Babylonstoren
Pictures welovepictures Words Maike
We have been so busy lately that we’ve been neglecting our Journal and not sharing any of the wonderful weddings we’ve been photographing – sometimes getting the pictures into the couple’s happy hands is just more important.
But Ben and Nikki’s celebration was too good not to share. These two have been together for ten years so you can only imagine the celebration it was!
Returning to Babylonstoren is always a treat, but we were especially excited to hear that Ben and Nikki were getting married in the incredible House of Shadows, which serves as a Clivia Greenhouse in the Babylonstoren nursery. The harsh and graphic shadows and the incredible Simonsberg mountains made this ceremony pretty epic. And afterwards Nikki and Ben led their guests through the beautiful gardens to their reception at the Koornhuis. We think everyone loved the vibe – what a treat to walk through those gardens around that time!
It was a joy to once again work with the wonderful husband and wife team that is Hannes and Tina from [Kraak] – weddings that involve these two are just guaranteed to knock our socks off.
Documenting this day for Ben and Nikki and being able to partake in their love and joy was a beautiful thing to be a part of – we loved photographing every minute of it.
