My ultimate is when my bride and groom’s wedding day perfectly encapsulates them as a couple and Steven and Tyla’s wedding couldn’t be a better example. They decided to make a weekend of it, heading to The Cowshed wedding venue just outside of Dullstroom (one of my favourite places in the world) and the setting couldn’t have been more magnificent.
From their pastel colour palette, to the succulents that featured throughout their day (as their thank you gifts, Tyla’s bouquet, on their wedding cake), and creative input made by their friends and family, Steven and Tyla’s day was one of a kind. Tyla and Steven’s daughter, Stormie, styled Tyla and her bridesmaids hair (how amazing!), Steven’s aunt made all of the bridesmaid dresses, Tyla’s sister painted the welcome signs, and Steven’s parents created the marquee letters above the main table. Talk about a creative group of people!
Steven and Tyla, from the moment I heard your proposal story, I knew your day would be magnificent. It was hard not tear up behind the lens seeing Steven’s reaction to seeing Tyla walk down that aisle. Your day still gives me goosebumps and it will be one that Steven (Storey) and I will hold close to our hearts for always. Thank you for trusting us with your love story and may your marriage be incredibly blessed and filled with adventure. I cannot wait to see how your story unfolds in the years to come.
The Cowshed wedding venue is the perfect mix of rustic and romantic. Such a beautiful spot to celebrate love.
The sweetest succulent thank you gifts. Let love grow!
The hills of the Badfontein Valley were the perfect backdrop.
I’m absolutely obsessed with the blush undertone of Tyla’s dress. Gourgeous!

Such a proud father.
Pure radiance. Tyla, you made such a magnificent bride.
The moment he sees her, cue all the feels!
Mr and Mrs Jonker!
Can we just take a moment to appreciate Steven’s dashing suit? Looking good, Mr Jonker, looking good!
Here’s to forever!
Tyla’s bridesmaids put on a spectacular performance for her as a part of their speech. Love!
Here’s to Mr and Mrs Jonker!
A big thank you to the team that made Steven and Tyla’s wedding so special! A special shout out to their loving family for all of the special elements they added to their special day.
