Johannesburg South Wedding Photography | Sunel and Erik
Sunel and Eriks wedding photography
Sunel and Eriks Johannesburg South wedding photography uses a few different venues with a beautiful result. Sunels father is a pastor at NG Kerk Alberton-Wes so this is naturally where they wanted to have their wedding ceremony. It is a beautiful big classic church. I really loved the pillars and steps outside where we did the family, bridal party, and confetti photos. Sunel got ready at Greenfields guesthouse just down the road from the church. It is important that the venues are close to each other and easy to access . This way it is less pressure on the photographer to travel to each point, as well as the bridal party and guests. Sunel chose red as her main colour giving this wedding a very classic and timeless look.
The Wedding Reception
The reception took place at Alzu Weltmeyer stables. They Have a beautiful old barn with high ceilings. It used to be an indoor riding arena but has since been converted for events and weddings such as this. Chandeliers and fairy lights hang from the ceiling and really transform the space into a fairytale setting. Although the horses were not important in Sunel and Eriks wedding day, this is a nice option to have if you do want these beautiful animals in your backgrounds. Then it is worth discussing with the venue. But do bear in mind it will only be possible if the owners do allow it. This is a livery yard meaning that individual people pay to keep their horses at the venue. If you are looking for a venue for Johannesburg south wedding photography then this is definitely one to consider.
Classic Wedding Decor and look
Sunel and Erik went for a classic burgundy red colour for their main wedding colour. This is a strong colour to work with and does stand out nicely against the green backgrounds which complement it. They used beautiful simple red gerberas as their main flowers in their table settings . The venue is really accentuated with the hundreds of fairy lights and beautiful old chandeliers in the old barn giving it a nice warm feel.
Other Johannesburg South wedding photography venues
If you are looking for wedding photography venues in Johannesburg South you can also take a look at some of these great options. Thaba Eco Hotel is a beautiful hotel with several wedding venues to choose from. The staff are well trained and it will offer you the best in catering and looking after your guests. Another great option is Benvenuti wedding venue which offers beautiful garden settings . Always remember when choosing a venue that it is better to have everything in one place, including both bride and groom getting ready, ceremony and reception. This way your photographer does not have to waste too much time getting from one place to another and can focus on getting the best photos of your wedding day. In addition if anything does go wrong it is easier to manage if you are in the same place as the ceremony and reception are happening and you can easily send your bridesmaids or groomsmen to sort these issues out if you are all there. Also moving guests from one place to another can be quite a challenging task . See if your venue offers accommodation and offer this option to your guests as well to avoid having to drive after the wedding celebrations.
