All brides are beautiful, but when she has the Hollywood glamour of a Grace Kelly or Jessica Lange, the camera just seems to do the job all by itself.

This weekend’s wedding was held at the little stone church across the road from Kirstenbosch, with the reception at Silvertree Restaurant in the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens.

We’re so lucky to be living in Cape Town, where such spectacular venues are but a few minutes’ drive away. The garden was ablaze with spring flowers, the weather was perfect, the bride and groom and their families were delightful, and there were about nine cute little children (aaawwww!) – not to mention all the fellows in their kilts.

Adding the final touches to her make-up.

Rough and tumble on the lawn. Trying to get nine kids in one picture isn't easy!

More kid chaos ... love it!
