On the 4th of November Field Photography joined Gavin Anderson and Tanja Hefer as they tied the knot at North Haven in Johannesburg. This wedding had a life of its own, culminating in a fabolous night at the burlesque styled Cantare Restuarant at Monte Casino. One thing that stood out about this wedding were the personalised vows that inspired laughter and tears of joy. Tanja’s dress was elegant with a full bodied train. A deep red complimented her colour scheme of black and white, as displayed in her bouquet, balloon inspired confetti and decor. After the ceremony the couple was whisked off to Monte Casino in Cantare’s limosine, where we took beautiful photographs against a European setting…
The couple shares their engagement story.
“It was the most romantic weekend in the world! Gavin arranged a secret weekend get-away at Kloofsicht Lodge, fooling Tanja into thinking it was a 1 night stay voucher he received from a friend. The weekend started with a romantic full body massage and jucuzzi. Romantic dinners followed and a “surprise hot air balloon trip” for the next morning. However, the surprise was ruined when Gavin received a call the next morning at 4.30AM to say that weather was not permitting! But that did not discourage Gavin… He quickly made plans for a romantic breakfast, red carpet, roses, under a thatch gazibo overlooking the water.There he got down on one knee and asked Tanja to marry him.
Her response: “Of Course!”
PS: Luckily the Balloon trip followed the next morning 🙂 ”
