Ruan and Mel are such great people. I have never felt so welcomed at a wedding like this couple’s. Honestly I think they were more worried about us as suppliers than their own wedding going according to plan. They are based in the Vaal but every time we had to meet up, do their E-shoot or discuss something, they’d jump in their car and come through to us. I sometimes felt like I wasn’t doing enough for them!
This wedding had a lot of tears, laughter and dancing and as usual I got very emotional (I am a sucker for weddings!). Weddings truly bring out all the stops with emotions and one cannot help but connect with their clients on a whole other level. The speeches and wishes had me in tears most of the reception but when Ruan’s groomsmen took hold of the mic, that all changed! My favorite part of the day was when Ruan surprised Melissa with playing the traditional wedding march song himself whilst she walked down the aisle. I think that is something not many guys can surprise their future wives with doing!
Their wedding took place at Oakfield which I am an avid fan of! This venue always blows our minds when shooting there!
