Little Pink Book would LOVE to share this beautiful Real Wedding by Tyme Wedding Photography with you. Based in Gauteng, Tyme Wedding Photography is a team of two dynamic photographers, Dylan and Tamlyn, who are well known for their love of people and making the ‘little’ things count. Their style has been expressed as: unpretentious, romantic, emotional, modern and funky.
Choosing your photographer is always a tricky part in the wedding planning process. How did you decide on Tyme Wedding Photography as your photographer? Dylan was the photographer for a friend of mine’s wedding. When I saw her wedding album, I fell in love with the look and style of the photos. So when it came to choosing our photographer, I went straight to Dylan and the rest, as they say, is history.
What was the “theme” of your wedding, and why? Our theme originated out of the specific day we chose for our wedding – 1st September being Spring Day – I would say we had more of a “colour scheme” of pink and grey.
What were the highlights of your wedding day? I loved getting ready with my bridesmaids – it was a beautiful Spring day, getting our hair and make-up done, the anticipation of seeing my husband-to-be, being surrounded by friends and family, walking into the church, all beautifully decorated with flowers and seeing Danie waiting for me at the end of the aisle! The reception looked amazing, great food, great music, the speeches… Everything!
How did you decide on your wedding venue? What was your venue short list? We knew we wanted to have the wedding in Johannesburg. It happened by chance actually, as we really struggled to find a venue that we loved. We thought of having the wedding at my parent’s house, but that didn’t work out. I was feeling quite despondent when my mom suggested we go to 44 Stanley to have a look. We loved the venue and wanted to book straight away, but were told there was already a provisional booking for the 1st of September. However, the couple that had made the provisional booking wasn’t too set on the date so they did a swap with us – so lucky! So the short list included my parent’s house, Villa Arcadia, and the Country Club in Auckland Park.
Did anything unexpected happen? Nope, the day ran so smoothly. I’m quite a relaxed person so I let things unfold naturally. I had a time schedule of sorts, so we knew what had to happen when, but all elements worked out very well.
Looking back, is there anything you would have done differently? No, we had the best day! I have watched our highlights video again and again to relive the day and I wouldn’t have changed a thing.
What every Bride should know: I’ll pass on the advice that was given to me: take in every single moment and just enjoy the day! It goes by so quickly. Take time to stand back with your husband and take in the sights, sounds, friends, family, food, venue, colours and smells. It really helps you capture the memories of your special day. While we were getting ready, my one bridesmaid suggested I take 10 minutes to sit quietly on my own and visualise myself walking down the aisle to meet Danie. This really helped with the nerves!
What every Groom should know: Enjoy the engagement – we had a year to plan and set our minds on what we liked best. On the day, complement your wife – she will look beautiful and radiant. Don’t forget to mention your wife in your wedding speech – you will be reminded for years to come!
