Stephanie, a doctor from San Francisco California, & Brandon, a scientist with NASA, made contact with me a little while ago about covering their wonderful destination wedding here in the Western Cape at the beautiful Mont Rochelle Hotel in Franschhoek. Without hesitation, this Cape Town based photographer was delighted to be available on their wedding date and the relationship was set in motion.

Mont Rochelle was their choice of wedding venue and one can see why they decided on this stunning location, nestled in one of the most picturesque mountainous settings in all of the Western Cape and South Africa. The words of the owner, Sir Richard Branson, sum up the essence of Mont Rochelle perfectly…

Welcome to Mont Rochelle in the Western Cape. This truly is one of the most beautiful parts of South Africa, a country I’ve been a regular visitor to for many years. During your time with us I hope you get the opportunity to try some of the fantastic wines produced in the region and experience some of the local hospitality - I always make a point of doing so!” - Sir Richard Branson

Stephanie & Brandon’s wedding was co ordinated without a hitch by Nicola Carstens from the always dedicated and wonderful Aleit Group. A smooth day of smiles and laughter, with belly delighting cuisine, “dance your feet off” entertainment and a day full of warm heartfelt moments, all adding to this very special occasion that Stephanie & Brandon had wanted for their nearest and dearest friends and family.
