Easter Engagement by Carolien + Ben

Easter Engagement by Carolien + Ben | SouthBound Bride

Happy Easter long weekend, lovelies! Whatever you have planned for the next few days, I hope you have a relaxed and blessed time (and drive safe on those roads, ‘kay?). But before we head off for the holiday, I just had to share this absolutely adorable engagement shoot of Easter lovebirds Fralene & Pieter from the very fab Carolien + Ben. It stars not just a happy bride and groom to be, but their very own Easter bunny. HOW CUTE IS THAT? It’s the sweetest way to celebrate the season of life and renewal and joy – here’s wishing you all the same and more! Read more

Sizzling Sunset Engagement by Vizion Photo

Sizzling Sunset Engagement by Vizion Photo | SouthBound Bride

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE hearing the stories of how couples meet- they’re like snowflakes or fingerprints, no two exactly the same. Today’s love story is a modern one, a connection forged online and confirmed in person, leading to a happy ever after for Carina and Wayne. That connection sparked and sizzled on this glamorous beach engagement shoot with the Cape sunset as a backdrop from SBB sponsors, the fab Vizion Photo, with sunlight sparkling off the sea, and Table Mountain standing majestic on the horizon.

Fired Up Engagement by Alexis Diack

Fired Up Engagement by Alexis Diack | SouthBound Bride

Who doesn’t love a man in uniform? And when that uniform is a fire fighter’s… well. Take one handsome fireman (who some of you might recognise from the most recent series of Survivor SA) and one drop dead gorgeous makeup artist, and sparks fly. Philip and Lynnal are the loved-up couple in today’s fab, colourful engagement shoot from Alexis Diack – and Philip even brought along his gear for a few of the pics! I adore Lynnal’s stylish outfit changes too, and the fact that they ended of with a bit of flare, literally (supervised by Fireman Philip of course!). Read more

Karoo Farm Engagement by HisGlory-Photography Love

Karoo Farm Engagement by HisGlory Photography Love | SouthBound Bride

Afternoon, SouthBound Brideys, and just enough time for me to share one last love story with you today (as well as some spectacular Karoo scenery – how beautiful is this country of ours?). Stefan and Yolandi’s ‘how they met’ is adorable (and proposal amazing too!), and since in a way it was Stefan’s farm that brought them together, it seems like the most appropriate place for them to have had their engagement shoot with HisGlory-Photography Love, together with their sweet dogs (you know how I love dogs by now!). It’s the perfect way to finish off our celebration of love on Valentine’s Eve. Read more

V&A Waterfront Proposal by Photofuzion

V&A Waterfront Proposal by Photofuzion | SouthBound Bride

I promised you a week of Valentine’s celebrations and today is going to be an unabashed celebration of love. You know, love, the reason we’re all here, right? I am such a romantic – one of my favourite things is how every couple has a unique story, a unique interlacing of tiny miracles that work together to bring two people together. A proposal is more than just a cumulation of those miracles into a categorical Yes, it’s also another unique part of each couple’s love story. So needless to say, I love the proposal stories almost as much as the ‘how we met’s. This morning we not only get to bask in Ridwan and Rukoya’s happy glow, but we actually get to see the moment he proposed – how cool is that?

A Day at the Circus Engagement Shoot by Elandre Montgomery

A Day at the Circus Engagement Shoot by Elandre Montgomery | SouthBound Bride

Hello lovelies! I am full of a cold today (struck down in the pribe of libe, as Monica from Friends would say), and have spent the morning in bed alternately sleeping and feeling sorry for myself, so no wedding for you today, sorry. Worry not, you’ll be seeing it tomorrow morning instead. For now, the best possible way to cheer myself up is by sharing this super super fun engagement shoot. Not just circus themed, you guys, but shot in a circus. Because the couple (Daniela & Angus) are professional clowns – Daniela is actually part of the Boswell Wilkie dynasty, as the granddaughter of its founder and ringmaster. How INCREDIBLY cool is that? This would put a smile on anyone’s face – and is perfectly captured by Elandre Montgomery! Read more

Boy Meets Girl Engagement by Moira West

Boy Meets Girl Engagement by Moira West | SouthBound Bride

You guys, I have been DYING to share this engagement shoot with you! It has been burning up my Dropbox since before Christmas, waiting for the perfect moment to share its massive amounts of romance with the world, and today is the day. Now I know e-shoots aren’t something all of you follow, but this one is just perfection. It’s not only unique and fun, and photographed to perfection by the always-amazing Moira West, but what I love best about it is that it has a little story behind it. Charles & Liné didn’t actually meet in a bar (read on for how they did meet, so cute), but because it was really love at first sight for them, they wanted to recreate that incredible moment when sparks flew. Butterflies! Be sure to read Charles’ hilarious version of how this love story began – it culminated in an amazingly romantic proposal (a scavenger hunt that started where they had their first date, created the perfect day and night complete with spa treatments, a fancy dinner and a red convertible, and ended with a room full of roses, a sparkly ring, and a bride-to-be saying “A thousand times, yes!”). Thank you so much Liné and Charles for sharing! Read more

Love & Laughter Engagement

Love & Laughter Engagement | SouthBound Bride

I don’t feature a lot of e-shoots on SBB, and unlike weddings, it can be hard to put my finger on what makes me want to share one with you. Maybe it’s the way it’s styled, or maybe the way it’s photographed, or a cool location, or fun props (I’m the last person who is going to tell you that you have to have props, but they can be a fun focal point). Today’s engagement shoot from Moira West has all of these aspects going for it – a gorgeous on-trend mint colour scheme, a few fun hearts and balloons (mint balloons, love!) and to-die-for golden hour light in Moira’s pics. But what I love about it? Is that the bride and groom-to-be are CANNING themselves laughing in just about every photo. I’m a firm believer that if you’re going to spend the rest of your life with someone, they had better be someone who makes you laugh every day, and just by the giggles that Eon and Mariette were getting into doing this e-shoot, you know that their lives will be full of happy smiles. So that’s what’s really inspiring me today, and I hope it’s inspiring you. Go out and enjoy some belly laughs with the one you love this evening. :) Read more

Dairy Farm Engagement Shoot

Dairy Farm Engagement Shoot | SouthBound Bride

We’re carrying on with our farm theme today with a gorgeous e-shoot from SBB friend and sponsor Dreampix. Helen (one of our lovely readers!) and hubby-to-be Johan decided to do their engagement shoot in the Cape on a dairy farm, and the cows (and even an owl!) looked on happily as the couple shared this special moment. What can I say: so moooooo(i)! Read more

Rock Climbing Engagement Shoot

Rock Climbing Engagement Shoot | SouthBound Bride

Afternoon, friends! I have such a fun e-shoot to share with you this afternoon, courtesy of Kate from The Girl in Gumboots Photography (how adorable is that name? you just know we’ll love her). It’s not every couple that goes for an adrenaline-filled location for their couple shoot, but I absolutely love how this gung-ho couple rocked (literally) their unusual setting. Read more
