Thean + Penny | Geelbek, West Coast National Park

Posted by Juné Joubert on January 8th, 2011

What a wedding!!! Thean and Penny is a lovely couple, and had a day true to themselves.

Penny’s family has been coming to Churchaven for holiday since forever. They have an authentic white beach cottage right on the sand. The ceremony was in the little church, after which everyone walked through ankle deep clear waters, to have refreshments on their holiday-home’s stoep. (See how Tannie Alice Meyer – one of the few true locals left – enjoys her afternoon while Penny walks by.. This Tannie lives an inspiring legacy! I can’t possibly portray all the beautiful detail-filled stories that I’ve heard, but I have told Penny’s mom that I will leave it to her to write a book about it all! And I really think she should! ;) Their reception was at Geelbek..

For the photos we went to the Skaapwachters Cottage (die Spookhuis) – and this is a chapter on it’s own! – PLEASE, everyone, beg Penny’s mom to write everything she knows!!

Everything else was just as beautiful.. friends and family.. food glorious food! .. the weather – one moment everything is so misty you can’t see too far (a lovely breezer and break from the heat) and the next it was perfectly sunny! (this happened x3) .. the car! ( I don’t know my cars, but this one is a beauty! One of the only 2 in South Africa – Ford Nash )

Thean en Penny, baie dankie vir ‘n lekker dag! Ek hoop regtig die fotos vang dit effe so mooi vas soos wat dit was!!

Dankie ook vir Anel wat my regterhand was!

It was a day of animals as well! This guy came swimming right at us, posed for the shot, and then turned around (:
Besides this beauty; we saw two different and lengthy snakes crossing the road; a tortoise; flamingo’s – and a homy cat and dog, styled for the day, off course! (see gallery at end of post (:

Oh!!! and this was my try at the wild “rooikat” (Caracal) while driving passed… an abstract (:
