Spicer and Michelle
A Summer Harvest Wedding at Babylonstoren, Western Cape.

We have shot quite a few weddings at Babylonstoren over the past year.
And yet, every time we return we are filled with an almost child-like excitement at documenting which is sure to be yet another beautiful celebration, that decisively ends up being completely true and real to the particular couple. Yes, the venue and the buildings are the same and the flowers and decorations are similar – although this really depends on the season and what is currently in bloom in the gardens. But the celebration, the people and the love shared between the couple, their friends and family is ALWAYS true and completely unique to the couple. It’s their story. And their story is relevant to only them.
Michelle and Spicer’s wedding was one of those weddings where we just couldn’t stop ourselves from smiling. All the time. The bear hugs, smoochy kisses, big laughs and heart-felt words shared at their wedding made our hearts sing with joy. These guys are one happy bunch.
We loved working alongside Anna – possibly our favourite wedding coordinator in the country! She is amazing.
And Marissa‘s giant wreath was a joy to behold.
Spicer and Michelle – you guys are rad and we loved documenting your wedding day for you. Thank you.
