11 DECEMBER 2012, KIRSTENBOSCH GARDENS

This will probably always be one of the most special weddings we have shot. Not only was it a milestone in the beginnings of Knit Together, but it was also my (Nicola's) cousin's wedding. 

The light was peeking through the clouds in a wonderfully diffused way in the late afternoon, bringing out so much of the colour and rich smells of earth. Josh and Elizabeth embraced the outdoors with bare feet for the photos and wedding. They opted to do the photos before the ceremony, which was the official celebration of what they made legally official earlier in the year. My sisters and another cousin sang their wedding song for them, Josh’s parents ran the ceremony, Josh’s sister made the wedding cakes and some speeches sent by Elizabeth’s family who couldn’t be there made it extra-touching.
