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.

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

More kid chaos ... love it!

Boudoir photography, intimate portraits, personal expression … call it what you will, but a portrait session that has no purpose other than exploring your femininity, the general fabulousness of you, is wonderfully self-affirming and liberating.

Many women select the boudoir shoot as part of their wedding package, either as a gift to their new husband, or simply as a bachelorette gift to themselves.

The common opening line is ‘I’ve never done this before … I’m really nervous,’ quickly followed by ‘I’m not very photogenic.’ Well, unless you’re a model or a movie start, it’s quite likely that you’ve never done this before. As for being unphotogenic – leave that bit to me!

It’s a fun photo session, definitely worth a try!
