Elsabe and Garth got married on Saturday. A wedding at Casalinga in Muldersdrift is always such a special affair. I just love the chapel and the gardens at Casalinga, not to mention the incredible food they serve in the restaurant!

I met Elsabe at Monchique Guest House, where she was getting ready with her mom. I do enjoy doing getting-ready photos. Getting to work with the dress and all the details before the bride gets dressed in her finery is always such fun.

See this gorgeous chapel? It’s one of the reasons I love taking photos of a wedding at Casalinga.


I just love how the cake mimicked Elsabe’s dress.

I really do enjoy intimate weddings like this. Most of the guests played some kind of part in the wedding, and because there weren’t so many guests, the couple really did get to spend time with every person that was there.

Elsabe’s son walked her down the aisle.


Garth’s daughter read out a poem.



And then seven guests came up one by one to light a candle and say a prayer for the couple. It was so special.

As I left, the wedding party went into a private dining area in the restaurant for their dinner. The menu looked amazing! I’m sure they enjoyed their special evening with their close friends and family.
