Antonino & Tracy Wedding – Zimbali

By Colin Browne | 05 September 2017

Tracy and Antonino had a nautical themed wedding, largely because they met whilst both working on a ship. Antonino is Italian and was blessed to have family and friends fly out for the wedding, Tracy is South African and her parents have a home at Zimbali. We had a magnificent sunset which greeted us just…

Darrell & Jess Wedding – Bellevue Cafe

By Colin Browne | 21 July 2017

It was so fun shooting the wedding of my good friends Darrell and Jess, it’s quite different to most of the weddings I shoot which are for couples I only meet either on the wedding day or maybe once before the wedding. It was a close-knit affair with our other friends Carryn from Desire 2…

James & Sarah Wedding – Talloula

By Colin Browne | 14 July 2017

I’ve been wanting to blog this wedding for a while now but I’ve just been way too busy with so much editing. James and Sarah had a beautiful wedding in April, the ceremony was at the Maris Stella school chapel close to where Sarah grew up and the reception and photo shoot was at Talloula…

Ty & Bronwyn Wedding – Babylonstoren

By Colin Browne | 30 June 2017

On the 27th of March last year I got an enquiry from Bronwyn, she explained that she is originally from South Africa but now lives in the USA. She was travelling to KZN to visit family with her new fiancé Ty and wanted to do an engagement shoot. So we made the arrangements and did…

Rickaal & Melissa Wedding – Collisheen Estate

By Colin Browne | 22 June 2017

It was such a pleasure shooting Rickaal and Melissa’s wedding, these are two kind and genuine people who were surrounded by a lot of love on their wedding day. We had a great bit of light for their creative photo shoot, and we took a drive to a forest down the road too for something…

Greg & Melissa Wedding – Estuary Hotel

By Colin Browne | 15 June 2017

This was such a great wedding to shoot, any couple who chooses Thunderstruck by AC/DC as their entrance song to their reception is number one in my book! Greg and Melissa are such a fun couple who really enjoyed their relaxed wedding day.  The weather was perfect, the ceremony and speeches were moving and emotional.…

Ryan & Candice Wedding – Tala Game Reserve

By Colin Browne | 30 May 2017

I’ve always loved shooting weddings on game reserves, not only because I enjoy doing a bit of wildlife photography occasionally but also because of all the wide open spaces and the feel of being out in the African wilderness. It’s even better when it’s close to home, Tala is only about 30 minutes away from…

Sam & Manisha Wedding – Collisheen Estate

By Colin Browne | 15 May 2017

Today is a bumper wedding post. I shot two pre-functions plus the actual wedding for Manisha and Sam, the first was the Mendhi which was held at Manisha’s family home in Simbithi followed by the Hurdee at the Square in Umhlanga. Generally the sort of people who have the bigger and fancier weddings aren’t particularly the…

Shaun & Rachel Wedding – Umtamvuna River Lodge

By Colin Browne | 21 February 2017

When a couple comes home from the rainy UK to get married in sunny South Africa, the last thing they want is rain on their wedding day. Unfortunately this is exactly what happened, but Shaun and Rachel didn’t let it bother them at all. They had a wonderful wedding despite the odds, we did a…

Stanton & Zenilla Wedding – Coastlands Hotel Umhlanga

By Colin Browne | 14 February 2017

Stanton and Zenilla had two wedding ceremonies and two photo shoots, the first was a Catholic ceremony and the second was a traditional Hindu ceremony which was held at Coastlands Hotel in Umhlanga. I normally do outdoor photo shoots at sunset, but with the way the day was planned out it wasn’t possible so we…

Barend & Elserie Wedding – Haycroft Farm

By Colin Browne | 25 January 2017

It was wonderful spending the day up at Haycroft Farm shooting Barend and Elserie’s wedding. The ceremony was held in the forest next to the lake which was stunning in every way, it provided plenty of photo opportunities for later too. The reception was in the main hall which was kitted out in loads of…

Njabulo and Nombulelo came down from Johannesburg to Alpine Heath resort in the KZN Drakensberg to get married. They had a wonderful celebration full of joy and laughter.
