The first kiss as husband and wife at this Swellendam, South Africa outdoor wedding ceremony.

The couple met in Dubai and came all the way to South Africa for their intimate farm wedding. The weather was cold and rainy, but this never dampened the couple's spirit. The ceremony took place under age-old mature trees. The couple said their vows as the mist set in on the farm. After the ceremony, the couple got onto a tractor and cart and we drove out on the meadow for beautiful couple portraits as the horses grazed in the background. The ceremony followed with emotional speeches and a vibrant dance floor enjoyed by all.
