When Daphne emailed me to ask if I’d photograph her Drakensberg elopement, I jumped at the opportunity!
I don’t think there is any place I love more in KwaZulu-Natal than the Drakensberg.
When she mailed me a few months later to say they’d booked a helicopter, I very nearly dropped out from panicked excitement! 😀
Can you tell I’ve never been in an helicopter before?
But in the weeks leading up to the day, I got more and more excited and the only time my fear kicked in again, was when I saw the tiny helicopter in front of me! 😀
Buckled in, there was no time to be scared and before we knew it, the helicopter was in the air and gently perched us atop a huge mountain in front of the Drakensberg Amphitheatre!
To say this was an incredible experience, is an understatement!
It was AWESOME!
Thank you Daphne and Justin for allowing me to experience this with you (all of us for the first time!) and thank you to Westline Aviation for keeping us safe! 😉 Our pilot was super in-control (not going to lie, I did ask him how long he’s been flying for when I first jumped in! :D) and knowledgeable about the area.
Daph and Justin decided to have a very intimate ceremony with just their sisters and parents and chose South Africa for its beauty. They all flew in from Toronto, Canada and it was so special seeing guests to our country, truly enjoy it and experience it for the first time. Montusi Mountain Lodge did a fantastic job at hosting them and the berg did its thing as only the berg knows how to.
Here’s a peek into their day… x
