There is a first time for everything! Bernward booked me from Denmark for a quick couple shoot of him and Marlene the afternoon after their proposed morning wedding in Cape Town. I rocked up on time at Spier‘s reception with a t-shirt and some of my equipment in a backpack. Here I met the groom, witnesses and minister who informed me that I would be photographing their whole wedding! Gracefully I had packed all my gear including my mobile studio lights, as the legal side of the ceremony happened in their hotel room. A quick set up and a couple of hours later, Bernward & Marlene were happily married!
Here’s some thinking-on-my-feet shots of a lovely Danish couple at their “surprise” wedding.
