Niel and Ashleigh
The Day Two Architects Got Wed In A Warehouse // Port Elizabeth
Pictures welovepictures Words Maike
Those of you who know us or follow us on Instagram, probably know that we have been renovating our first home for the past few months. In between this chaos that was our lives – having no clue what we’re doing really and feeling a little lost amongst all this grown-up stuff – it was an absolute relief and such a joy to work alongside our friend and wonderful architect, Niel Basson from WERK_. He walked into our dump of a house and saw beauty where we only saw chaos. He came up with concepts that our brains could’ve never dreamed of and he designed a magic house for us – one we are so excited to be living in now.
While all this was happening, Niel and Ash got engaged and naturally we were delighted to hear that we could return the love by documenting their wedding day for them.
As was to be expected from two architects, Niel and Ash pulled off one killer wedding: they turned an old warehouse where Niel works into a wedding venue, their ceremony was held in the VW Kombi garage with the valley as their backdrop and their family and friends did all the flowers, decorating and lighting. The celebration was simple and real – it was a true reflection of who they are.
We won’t waste any more time with words, let’s get to the pictures already – they’ll do a way better job at telling the story anyway!
What a rad wedding to document! Thank you Ash and Neil, you guys are such gems x
