An intimate elopementJen & Chan Married

Jen & Chan wanted to have a small intimate marriage. They had their parents and siblings there to witness their marriage. We arrived at Jens home in Pretoria to document a little bit of what was going on. Chan was clearly nervous, but extremely excited that he would be calling Jen his wife in just a few hours.

Jen was upstairs getting ready, so we didn’t see her for a while. We drove to a small church in Pretoria north and they said their I Do’s and they were married. It was really such a special day. A lot of people think that getting married needs to be this massive thing, but these intimate marriages are really so special.

I photographed this day completely with a documentary approach, I’m so honoured that I was able to witness this special moment in their lives.

Just to let you know, they did have an awesome wedding celebration party a few months later at Sir James V D Merwe in Joburg. We did a first look with them and it was super special. Go have a look.
