I’ve known Liezl for many years, so I was thrilled when she contacted me a while ago about taking photos of her and Matthew’s river cruise wedding. I’ve been watching their relationship via Facebook, so it was so fantastic to finally meet him when he got to South Africa a few weeks ago.
Actually, the meeting with Liezl and Matthew was also probably the second time I’ve ever met Liezl in “real life” too! We met on a forum many many years ago, and have very rarely had the opportunity to meet up. Anyway, enough about me!
Liezl and Matthew met online… oh how I love online relationships! LOL! He lives in Wales, and they decided to get married here with her family and friends being present. They are also planning a reception in Wales when Liezl moves there in the next few months.
When she told me what they were planning on doing for their South African wedding reception, I absolutely loved the idea!
A sunset cruise from Stonehaven on Vaal
What could be better than having a sunset cruise down the Vaal river surrounded by close family and a few friends! It was such an awesome laid back affair.
But first, we need a few portraits on dry land, so we headed for a nearby willow tree. I love the curtain of leaves!
I’m so glad they stood in the middle of the willow tree 🙂
Danzelle and her friend insisted on interviewing Matthew and his best man Roman.
This was the best place on the boat in my opinion.
