In August I was honoured and privileged to act not just as best man to a truly great friend, but also as one of a collaboration of photographers shooting the wedding of Simon & Giya at Collisheen Estate, just outside Ballito. Giya is also a photographer and the plan was that she would call in her friends to all help shoot the day. My job, other than my best man duties, was to shoot the groom preparation, the styled shoot after the ceremony, and some shots from the reception. Well, what an eventful day it was. We woke up early to thunder, lighting and torrential rain. Luckily, by about 8:00 the rain had stopped and by 10:00 all the clouds had gone and the weather was perfect. After the ceremony and the obligatory congratulations to the beautiful couple, we went off to a little forested area next to a sugarcane field for the styled shoot. The weather was still perfect and we had beautiful afternoon sun to shoot in which really made for super images. Such a beautiful day for such a beautiful couple.
