Alessandro & Janelize {Wedding} | Villa Amor, Pretoria

I loved this wedding! Alessandro and Janelize met me last November and told me that they weren’t keen on photos of themselves so they didn’t really want couple photos. What?! I asked them to think about it and reconsider and they agreed to at least 30mins. Their couple photos are some of my all-time favourites!

Alessandro and Janelize had a very relaxed morning wedding. They got married in court and then had more of a wedding celebration with their family and friends. In fact, they were so relaxed that I was a little freaked out on the day! I love relaxed brides but Janelize was SO relaxed that I wasn’t even sure how to handle it, haha. It was great!

There were so many DIY details at the wedding: from the handmade favours (headband/scarf for the ladies and bowtie for the gentlemen) to the benches the ceremony was held on! Alessandro and Jenelize’s dad spent a weekend making the benches. Janelize spent what I can only imagine would be ages making the origami hearts that were used as details throughout the whole wedding.

Janelize is a music teacher so musical details were also a big part of the day

Janelize’s sister is a costume designer and made Janelize’s dress for her. It perfectly suited her personality. I adored the colours of her dress and flowers paired with Alessandro’s blue suit!

After the ceremony Janelize surprised with Alessandro with a “flash mob” – the guests had secretly been practising! It was awesome to see the surprised look of Alessandro’s face!

And here are just a few of my favourite couple photos! These two are so relaxed that it was magical having them in front of my camera!
