Zani’s Bridal Shower

So hubby and I have been in the wedding industry for over 25 years. I started out with my photography career when our children was still toddlers. My little curly head girl was probably only 5 when I started. At first, for the first couple of years, I mostly did event and family photography. Then we moved to a different state and had a friends wedding coming up. At that stage I had quite a bit of experience with portraiture, but have never done any weddings. But I jumped at the chance to go into this direction. With our first wedding we also had a first finalist in a very popular and well known “Bride of the year” competition. This, together with referrals and advertising in a bridal magazine brought us on track for our wedding photography business. At this stage hubby had no choice but to join me in my venture. He started out as my 2nd shooter, but boy, he was huge competition so became my equal. His work is so beautiful. We compliment each other’s style and will very seldom photograph a wedding without each other. Having attend so many beautiful weddings throughout our career, I always got super emotional seeing the couple, especially the bride.  I would always imagine what it would feel like to see my little girl on her wedding day.  It feels like years turned into days.  Before I knew it, my daughter was engaged.  She chose well.  He is a kind hearted man of God with so much love for her and everyone in her life.  We could not be more happy for the 2 of them.

So the past Christmas season we had so many things happening.  Deon and I celebrated our 29th wedding anniversary, Zani’s bridal shower, Christmas, New Year, Deon’s birthday and then ended it off with their wedding.  We were fortunate to have my parents and my sister over from South Africa for a couple of months and so it was super special to have them here for the kitchen tea.

I really wanted a beautiful colourful theme for her bridal shower.  My very talented friend, Mariana from The Wedding Place Perth, baked the most gorgeous tasty beautiful red velvet cake.  We had such a great evening with some of her close friends.  I feel blessed to have this gorgeous person as my daughter.
