Alex & Alex | Wedding, De Uijlenes – Gansbaai

Alex and Alex (yes, both of them are Alex.) This wedding will forever be engrained in my mind and my heart.

I first started communicating with Alex via Facebook after their story made the press… They were turned away by a local wedding venue due to their same-sex relationship (note, they are both American citizens.) This story hit home very hard for me.

Fast forward a year or so, and Alex and Alex were back in Cape Town and I photographed their engagement shoot. It was the first time I met these two amazing women face to face. Before their wedding, I did a shoot for Alex Lu’s parents who never had a wedding photographer for their wedding more than 40 years ago in China. They are literal couple goals!

24 August will forever be my #AlexWedAlex day… These two beautiful ladies tied the knot at the gorgeous De Uijlenes venue in Gansbaai. Their decor was provided by the talented Christien & Nel from Husband Wife Team.

A celebration of love. The coming together of family and friends. The union of two gorgeous souls. It doesn’t get better than this.

Thanks Charlie Jay for second shooting.
