Jean & Natalie Swart @ Umbizane Game Lodge

Where to start with this wedding!!  Game drives, wild animals, beautiful sunsets and sunrises, dinner under nothing but candle light and the stars, the Zululand Gospel Choir singing throughout the day, an awesome bridal party, amazing friends and family and most importantly, the perfect couple. Jean and Nats, Mr and Mrs Swart, you certainly created something special for everyone.  There was so much to photograph that I didn’t put my camera down from 7am till 10 pm and every single moment of this day was worth capturing. There was so many amazing parts to this wedding, such as Natalie’s friend Eloise flying overseas to act as flower girl, friends and family taking their weekends off to join in the celebrations, the beautiful speeches made my Jean and Nats and their close friends, and their beautiful first dance – I could go on forever!  I could have shared every picture I took but for now, here is a brief summary of this incredible day. Congratulations Mr and Mrs Swart – Thank you for making me feel so welcome! Oh and a special thank you for quite literally running on the couple shoot! Speeding at a million miles an hour through the bush to chase the last moments of the sun was certainly a memorable moment! Enjoy your Prosecco while you sit back and look through these pics on your honeymoon in Italy!!!! xxxxx

    A wedding to remember in every way.A true out of Africa affair. Fairy lights in the thorn trees, an African red sunset, a Zulu choir to add a local touch, apart from the bridal couple who looked stunning. So glad to have been there to share it with you. Cuz

    Forget about the English Royal weddings for I have never ever seen such a beautiful setting for the most beautiful bride on her wedding day.Congratulations to all those who obviously put so much thought and love into this magical day. The photos are absolutely stunning and will stay in my thoughts for a very long time. Yes Natalie you were quite right to choose the wilds of Africa for your special day. PG
