Beach Monochrome Engagement Shoot by Dillon Kin

Beach Monochrome Engagement Shoot by Dillon Kin | SouthBound Bride

We started the morning thinking pink, but this afternoon we’re going monochrome with an absolutely beautiful beach engagement shoot from Dillon Kin, a featured member of our SBB directory. Tammy and JP are high school sweethearts and you can tell they already share many years of love and laughter from the easy intimacy that infuses these pics – alongside that gorgeous Cape light! I love the way that they chose to accentuate the scenery with pristine black and white contrast, along with cute accessories like balloons and an umbrella. Congratulations, lovebirds! Read more

African Sunset Engagement Shoot by Tanya Jacobs Photography

African Sunset Engagement Shoot by Tanya Jacobs Photography | SouthBound Bride

Afternoon lovely ones! I have such a pretty engagement shoot to share with you, from a group of the loveliest wedding pros based in KZN, including photographer Tanya Jacobs and stylist Jana Vorster. When Tanya sent over Gareth and Natalie’s pics, I was struck by how much more than a couple shoot was – in fact, it was also a beautiful gift for a treasured friend. Tanya says of the bride to be: “Natalie is such a gentle soul, always wanting to please others and ensure everyone around her is happy, even if this means she has to suffer/struggle/work exceptionally hard. When thinking about her engagement shoot, I knew I would need to do something amazing for her in return for all the love she gives to others.” How sweet is that? The result is this lovely styled shoot, which reminds me of Out of Africa or The English Patient - rustic luxe, vintage romance! Read more

Cozy Winter Engagement Shoot by Angie Capri

Cozy Winter Engagement Shoot by Angie Capri | SouthBound Bride

Afternoon, lovelies! As you’ve probably picked up by now, I’m am absolutely dog-besotted, so when photographer Angie Capri sent over this absolutely adorable winter shoot including not just the sweetest couple, Melissa & CJ, but their dog Yukon too, I just couldn’t resist sharing it with you! It’s such a relaxed shoot (in the dreamiest light), that really shows off the personalities of the couple (and their pooch) and instead of being stiff, formal posed pics, are the kind that show them enjoying time together as a little family, and I’m sure are much-treasured! I also love the way that Melissa and CJ chose to have their wedding and e-shoots in two of their favourite locations – nothing like celebrating life’s biggest milestones in places that you absolutely love.

Railway Romance Couple Shoot by As Sweet As Images

Railway Romance Couple Shoot by As Sweet As Images | SouthBound Bride

There’s just something about the railway, isn’t there? It’s that sense of old world style romance, I think. I’ve always adored them (minus my five years of endless commuting to Oxford, to be fair), and one day I would just love to do an Orient Express-style railway journey of epic proportions. Well, that old world romance also made the train yard a gorgeous backdrop for this adorable couple shoot by the fab As Sweet As Images. With Riette’s lace dress and Steve’s vintage blazer as a stylish nod to yesteryear, you can almost imagine them heading off on their honeymoon travels on the Grand Tour of Europe. Read more

Matt and Belinda love everything French, so for their engagement shoot with Andre Sonnekus, they asked Eco-Chic Weddings to help out with some gorgeous French-inspired styling. So adorable, and I love the outfits too. And be sure to read about Matt’s proposal – this guy could teach classes in how to organise the perfect romantic weekend! Read more

10 Reasons to Get Married in South Africa

10 Reasons to Get Married in South Africa | SouthBound Bride

Today’s post is partly aimed at the overseas brides and grooms, who are considering whether South Africa is the right place to celebrate their weddings (hint: it SO is). But let’s be honest, for those of us blessed to be born or live here, it’s nice to remind ourselves why this is one of the best destinations on earth. A little smugness never hurts, right? ;) To make the deal even sweeter, we’re featuring images from a styled wedding shoot put together by photographer Tania Timkova and Michele Steyn of Passionately Weddings. Tania, a destination photographer, was a visitor to our shores herself and fell in love with SA, especially Cape Town! She wanted to show off the potential to those back home, so worked together with real-life-couple Chantelle & Retief to capture the beautiful scenery, the tenderness, and of course, the love!

I love engagement shoots with a little somethin’ somethin’ extra, especially when it results in sheer romance, as this unique night e-shoot from the fab Riekert Cloete does. With clever lighting, some fun after dark locations, and a loved-up bride and groom-to-be on board, it has that special magic that reminds me of a moonlit night or a sky full of stars. Read more
