“Wherever you live in the world so wide, We wish you a nook on the sunny side,

With much love and little care, A little purse with money to spare, Your own little hearth when day is spent,

In a little house with hearts content.”

Scottish wedding quote

In true South African style, Kieran and Jacqui had the most beautiful, relaxed and stylish wedding at Leopard Lodge in Hartbeespoort.  This amazing couple currently reside in Scotland, but as their families and friends are still mostly based in SA, they decided to tie the knot here (and a good thing we say, considering the beautiful summer weather you had!).

For us, some of the highlights had to be Sebastian (Jacqui’s little brother) going for a quick ‘swim’ in the Jacuzzi, the men’s colourful socks, drinking from the Quaich – an ancient Scottish ceremony ritual symbolizing sharing life’s sweetness and bitterness together, the best “best man’s” speech we have heard at a wedding, the party vibe and great music, the simple yet beautiful décor and then of course, the awesome view over the Harties valley.  Over and above all of that, what really stood out was the joy of the day, the love between Kieran and Jacqui as well as the strong friendships we witnessed.

Kieran and Jacqui, you both were such a pleasure to photograph. Thank you for being so relaxed during the photo shoot (even for that ‘only one more’ photo!). Even though the zebras didn’t want to pose for the pictures, we enjoyed capturing your moments in the African bushveld. Thank you for allowing us to share your beautiful wedding day with you.  We wish you many happy years together and may you enjoy these memories of your special day.
