Franschhoek Uncorked 2016

Franschhoek Uncorked 2016

Franschhoek Uncorked 2016 at Boekenhoutskloof Wine Farm
Lot of fun lot of wine what else? The Chocolate Block
The quest to understand the name of this wine and the wine itself is now the stuff of legend – it’s even launched a graphic novel (see here). While we are not about to reveal all, we can say that the style of the wine is a reflection of our belief that the Cape, with its Mediterranean climate, is eminently suited to blended reds. The make-up of this wine is tweaked from vintage to vintage to best reflect the season and the ancient vines of great character that are an integral part of the wine’s charm and personality.

Benedene and Aldrich Wedding Sneak Peek

A wonderful “rustic wedding” at Rondekuil Farm in Durbanville positioned amongst rolling hills with breath-taking views of the Boland Mountain Ranges and Table Mountain.

This was a very special wedding for me, I met Benedene and Aldrich during a Corporate photo shoot at Clarity Diamonds in Cape Town and they fell “in love” with my style and so I am very proud of the opportunity they gave me to shoot their special day!

Thank you and all the best for the future!

What a wonderful and gorgeous couple! I had the opportunity to capture their emotions during one of the most important days of their lives………..at Cafe’ BonBon Franschhoek.

Unfortunately for me I dropped my main camera right at the beginning of the wedding while I was busy taking pictures of the decor, flowers and table settings with the result of a completely broken lens… anyway shooting at Cafe’ BonBon on this beautiful location and Melissa and Ruan being such a special couple made my job easier even if I lost one camera and the best lens I had.
