Amukelani & Londiwe’s The Ranch Wedding in Polokwane, Limpopo Province
In October 2017 I was asked by Amu the groom to be their official photographer at their wedding in April 2018. I was very keen to assist as they were to get married at The Ranch Hotel just outside Polokwane.
As a preferred service provider for them, I am very familiar with the venue and a lot of the staff and management.
As I am based in Johannesburg, Gauteng currently I still do weddings in Polokwane, but drive through to go and cover them. The day before the wedding was the 27th April and our Freedom Day Public Holiday. The traffic to the North was hectic, but the weather was perfect.
Saturday morning of the 28th I started at 7h30 covering the event. Taking photos of the venue, decor, rings, flowers etc. Covering the preparations is always fun as you get to spend some time with the couple separately and get to know them a bit better. As the wedding was outside and a morning ceremony I had a lot of natural light to work with. I always enjoy weddings like this.
By 17h30 I was done for the day as the sun was setting fast and all formalities covered. I had a lot of fun and as with all African Weddings, the vibe was fantastic.
Amu & Londi, thank you for choosing and trusting me with your memories. Here are a few pix of the day telling the story. I hope you enjoy them and please share this with all your family and friends.
