Dan & Michelle – Riverbank Estate Winery

If I’ve ever met a bride who was on time … and I mean on time, it was Michelle.

Dan & Michelle got married a couple of weeks ago at the beautiful Riverbank Estate.  It’s the first time we photographed at this venue and I was super impressed to say the least.

Michelle, a teacher by profession, knows how to plan and so everything went according to plan on the day.  The wedding ceremony was scheduled to start at 15:30, and that is the exact time it started.  Any guests that thought they could arrive late “because all brides are late for the ceremony” made a huge mistake.  The ceremony was simply lovely and a joy to behold for all family and friends present.

We had a blast with the photo session afterwards at the venue.  For a couple that told me they are camera shy before the day started, I had to ask myself why?  They were very relaxed in front of the lens – pro models if you ask me!!

The vineyards at the venue made for some spectacular photos. I simply love the colours at this time of year, and it proved to be a very romantic location.

Then there was the bridal party.  What a great bunch of guys and girls.  Lots of fun together and heaps of laughter during their photo shoot.

The lowly lit reception at the venue proved to be a great choice, and there was a view as well!!  I have to give special mention to Dan’s dad who made the most beautiful wedding cake.  Seems there are lots of hidden talents in both families.

Dan & Michelle, you guys are great – a wonderful couple who puts God first.  We wish you all the best and a long and happy married life together.

We hope you love your photo’s just as much as we love them.

Much love,
