Ryan & Carla… Walkersons Hotel & Spa

When we met Ryan and Carla for the very first time these two ski-slope loving, shy adventurers were adamant that they only wanted a few photos on their wedding day. And if at all possible a few with their beloved Golden Retrievers; Mitra & Ravi.

So setting out to Walkersons Hotel near Dullstroom on that very special “pasella” day that only comes by once every four years -the 29th of February- we had our hearts set on giving them exactly what they have asked for.
Only a few minutes away from their guests for their couples photos and of course the ones with their furry family members.

We did not know that Dullstroom would pull out all the stops to give us an authentic “rolling mist for days” Dullstroom afternoon or that Ryan & Carla would be such a dream to photograph that we were completely torn to only have them for a few minutes…
Neither did we know that Ravi & Mitra would be the most elegant, energetic and lovable ring bearers of all time!

This wedding was one for the books! Carla rocked an exquisite Vonvé Bridal Couture dress and had four bridesmaids that had us wanting to steal each and every one of them to make them our best friends!
Ryan and his groomsmen on the other hand knew that a wedding day should be celebrated champagne in hand. And the two gorgeous ring bearers were decked out with Valgray collars and leads for the occasion {and we were of course instantly in love}.

During the ceremony we had no idea that we would have banks of rolling mist coming in and out! To the point of obscuring our view and creating the most surreal images, showing exactly how it felt… from light to dark, clear to hazy. Not to mention the strange misty blue quality the light had.
You can almost feel the droplets clinging to your skin just looking at them.

These two were the “poster-children” of how to ensure you have the most EPIC wedding celebration… And here are a few tips we picked up:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. Include ALL your favourite family members… including the furry ones.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2. Choose a destination that excites you and that feels like an adventure for absolutely everyone. Think “destination wedding”… in the countryside… the wine lands… or abroad!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3. Embrace the weather; be it rolling mist, rain, snow, sunshine or all of the above.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4. Do it your way and focus on whatever is important or special to you. And this will be different for each and every couple! Find where you want to spend your energy {and money} on and make the day uniquely yours.

5. If you can find fabulous ruffled Ted Baker sneakers to wear during the reception… then do so!
