Schalk & Michele Burger | South Africa

Posted on: 30 January 2012 | Category: Featured, Weddings

What an honour to photograph the amazing couple, Michele and Schalk Burger’s wedding! I have been eagerly waiting to blog this one, but I had to wait for Sarie magazine to publish their wedding first.

Schalk & Michele’s wedding was held at Schalk’s family farm in Wellington, Welbedacht. The reception was a very stylish event under a bedouin tent, over-looking their magnificent dam. With Michele’s experience as an interior designer, the details were nothing short of absolutely gorgeous! With loads of white (my favourite colour!) and touches of green.

When I saw Michele’s wedding dress, I totally fell in love with it! And those shoes were to die for!!

You’re going to have to be patient for this page to load, because I just couldn’t choose less photos. There were too many moments I loved! Here are some of my favorites. Enjoy!
