Venue: Idille Forest Venue, George, Garden Route

A mid-week morning wedding with yellow tones and a late summer sun following our every move – what more can you ask for! First off, before you start browsing through the images from the wedding of James & Izelle, go find the song by the Beatles – “All you need is Love” and listen to it when you go through the selection, it sums up this wedding and the love between James & Izelle in every way.

James works overseas, currently in the middle east for at least two more years until he comes back for good. They have been engaged for quite some time and decided that even though they will still be apart for quite some time, they would like to tie the knot as they simply couldn’t wait any longer to be Mr & Mrs Nortje. Their love for each other, under difficult circumstances was quote an inspiration for us when we worked with them on their wedding day.

It was a mid week morning wedding with bright & happy yellow tones – perfectly suited to their personality and character. For the couple shoot they requested a bit of everything the venue and surrounds has to offer – forest, farm & vintage.

    I’m a Graphic Design graduate with a Major in Photography, currently working as a Graphic Designer and Wedding Photographer in the ever so beautiful Garden Route. I have been shooting various subjects for the past ±10 years, starting my career with 35mm film and moving on to digital recently. I stumbled into weddings by accident when friends required a photographer for their wedding, and being experience in the corporate world I accepted the task and made a small step into a world of love, passion and creative energy. Since then we have completed over 30 weddings and continue to grow and expand in the wedding industry. It’s only natural that Design & Photography go hand in hand, with some of our wedding stationary being featured on Pasella, Tuine & Tossels and various wedding magazines locally, including Top Billing Magazine.
