Adam and Candice’s wedding at Belair was a bright and beautiful expression of their unique world! They threw an epic celebration in one of the Western Cape’s most beautiful locations. Tucked away on the slopes of Paarl Mountain, Belair is not only surrounded by wine farms, it is also bursting with star jasmine, wisteria covered arches and rose gardens.
Candice Shares about their Belair Wedding
Adam and I love being in nature and we love spending time with our friends and family (especially at a party or festival). We wanted to bring these two elements together to create a relaxed and social atmosphere and for the evening to end in one big party!
We got caught up in the electric mix of their favourite things, colours, food, music and people. The unique details (like the bright vegetables alongside their flowers) and their joyful traditions brought their wedding day to life in a striking and unforgettable way.
For their couple photo session, we ventured around the Belair grounds and then met up with them the next day to capture the newlyweds in Franschhoek’s wild and untouched mountainous landscape. It was one of those evenings when all the magic of nature collides. The sun burst through the mountains in all its golden glory and the wind made Candice’s wedding dress dance.
(For those of you planning a wedding, a “day after photo session” (or even the week after) is a great option if you want to spend more time with your guests on your wedding day.) Be sure to scroll down to the end of the blog to check it out!
Adam and Candice, may this next chapter of your lives continue to surprise you with great adventure, deep connection and love. “May the wind under your wings bear you where the sun sails and the moon walks.” – J.R.R Tolkien
