Gillian & Charles | 18 December 2012 | Buitenverwachting

Gillian & Charles' wedding was the most beautifully relaxed day - a true representation of who they are individually and as a couple :) They both spent the morning getting ready at the beautiful home they share (and just finished renovating!). When I arrived it was to the most amazingly chilled atmosphere - Gillian sitting in a chair having the talented Alicia Buckle do her hair and makeup, whilst Charles sorted out last minute things. 

Their ceremony was no less, with them exchanging vows beneath the beautiful oak trees at Buitenverwachting whilst their nearest and dearest looked on. No frills or fuss was the order for the day, with just one speech in which Charles thanked all their guests for coming & sweetly teased Gillian :) The rest of the afternoon was spent picnic-ing under a massive monkey-puzzle tree, with hilarious banter & a whole lot of laughter :)

Gillian, you are so incredibly beautiful, especially when you laugh :) And Charles, it is incredible to see your quiet love for Gillian and how well you guys complement each other. Thank you so much for choosing me to capture your gorgeous wedding - I know you guys will have an amazing marriage :)
Love Tiffs

 Any couple who's willing to jump off a wall on their wedding day gets my respect ;)
