Justus & Clara

Intimate vows in the Karoo
The Lord Milner Hotel, Matjiesfontein

If you’ve ever been to Matjiesfontein in the Karoo, you will know that this place leaves you with a feeling that you’ve somehow time traveled into a different era.  From the dramatic decor in the Hotel, to the small shops and bar down the street, Matjiesfontein is truly special.  This town is so small that the “Red Tour Bus” you take for the famous town tour, takes you a total of 7 minutes.  It is no wonder that Justus and Clara decided to celebrate their wedding here, with a total of 17 guests, including us, and saying their vows in the smallest chapel we’ve ever shot in.  Justus and Clara are without a doubt two of the most heart warming people we’ve ever met, and their friends and family are just the same.  After the I do’s, a few speeches around the wedding cake took place, where after the remaining few guests enjoyed the bus tour, and an amazing dinner in the Yellow Room.  We can’t express enough how much we love intimate weddings, and this one really made our year!  Once dinner was done, they danced the night away in the small bar next to the hotel.  What an awesome, awesome day it was.

Justus and Clara, we loved being at your wedding, and we feel truly honoured to have sat at your dinner table and be a small part of the epicness that was this day.  We love you guys.

Enjoy these!

    WOW, I just love this wedding. My friend Justus is one lucky guy. Beautiful, beautiful photos, great job, it really does justice to the joy and love present on that day. I felt like I was there, great storytelling, awesome photography, perfectly captured emotional moments, just awesome. Thank you for this great presentation of what many of us couldn’t witness firsthand. I studied with Justus in the same College in Swansea, Wales (the Bible College of Wales). I am so happy that God gave him Clara, marvellous and gorgeous girl. Bless you, guys. From all the way in Wales, thumbs up, delightful and professional wedding photography.
