I hadn’t been to St Ives in the KZN Midlands for quite a few years, I even remember that at one stage there were some signs outside saying it was on auction. It has since been taken over and the new owners seem to have spent some money. There is now a magnificent chapel overlooking the dam, the gardens are immaculate and the whole place is just buzzing with a newfound energy. I can see clearly why Mervyn and Andrea chose it as their wedding venue. We had a magnificent sunset which always makes for spectacular photos, and there are no shortage of spots to do photos too.
Mervyn is a funny guy, full of jokes and laughter with his groomsman. He also happens to be the cousin of my friend and wedding photographer Tyrone Crossman. Andrea is as cute as a button and looked like a princess on her special day. It’s always wonderful shooting for a lovely down to earth couple. Congratulations to Mervyn and Andrea!
