Amanda & Dennis

A love like no other

“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.” – Neruda


Amanda and Dennis had two wedding celebrations and this was the first them. Both Dennis and Amanda’s families (from Sweden and South Africa respectively) gathered in the Eastern Cape for their traditional Xhosa wedding. The entire day was a feast for the eyes, with colour, pattern, music, dancing and food in abundance. There were audible gasps as Amanda walked down the aisle in her one-of-a-kind dress and there was so much beauty around that it was hard to know where to look. The chemistry between these two is tangible and if we were able to capture even a fraction of their magic in these pictures then then we would consider it a job well done.

    I just could not get enough … watched over and over. A wedding to end all weddings: this is how it should be – 2 cultures through two people so obviously deeply in love coming together to form a most exquisite entended rainbow.
    May your covenant Amanda and Denis continue to mirror the love, laughter, fun and colourful vibrancy of your wedding.
    Wishing you many, many, many years of happiness !! God bless you both and together in the richest way imaginable !! <3

    What a beautiful, beautiful wedding. Very emotional. I wish the whole of South Africa could see the love between these two. The photographs was outstanding capturing everyone’s emotions on the day. A day filled with love. The colours, life and everything were just gorgeous. The bride is so very beautiful and her dress is stunning. Congrats to all who put this amazing wedding together. I hope they have a long and happy life together.

    I married a white South African male, Johan Christo Nel,14 years my senior. I’m a Coloured woman from the Northern areas of Port Elizabeth. We’ve been married for 16 years this year and all I can say is, God blessed me and him and He obviously knew why he brought us together. We don’t have any kids to really make this ” culture mix” work but the love we have for each other is plain for all to see. Amanda and Dennis, God knows best. While looking through the album, my husband called and I told him about your wedding pics and then he remembered that our wedding day was captured on one of those old video cameras and we haven’t seen it since that day. Your beautiful, breathtaking, stunning pictures just made me want to search for my video in earnest now. May God bless your union forever!

    This has to be one of the most exceptional weddings I have ever seen and your photographs and video captured it magically! Loved everything about it : flowers, setting, the people, the couple, the dress, oh my gosh! especially that dress! and everything else in-between.
    Long may they live happily ever after.
