Francois and Luché's wedding was held at a lovely wedding venue in Swellendam called Utopia. This was essentially a weekend wedding with many of the guests arriving on the Friday to bond over braai fires and cold beers the night before the wedding. We were also invited to the festivities that took place on the Friday evening and took full advantage of getting to know Francois and Luché's lovely friends and family. 

We woke up on the Saturday morning with rain clouds looming overhead, but it cleared up as the day progressed and the weather turned out to be perfect for an outdoor ceremony. After the ceremony, guests were treated to cold beverages and canapes that was enjoyed in the shade of a big Bedouin tent. There were also golf clubs and balls available for those who wanted to practice their swing before the start of the evening reception.

The afternoon light turned out perfect for their couple session and we had a great time driving all over the venue grounds and stopping for photos every time we saw something that caught our eyes. After their couple session the reception kicked off with a bang and turned out to be a great success.
