Every year, on one of the oldest farms just outside Durbanville, Welbeloond, something is stirring. Vendors set up shop, selling everything from soaps, jams, crafts, art to food and mirrors. Curious and eager people flock from all over to witness and be a part of this spectacular event. There’s a lot to do and see and afterwards you can relax with a bite to eat and a glass of wine. If you don’t believe me – have a look at the marketing video we made to showcase the renowned CY Market. (cymarket.co.za)
October was the month for the Durbanville Matric Farewell event. We video documented this event so that the matrics can re-live this evening of fun, joy, and goodbyes. If a school decides to treat their matriculants with such a treat, they might just as well hire a professional team to create a video that people would actually watch a few times in the years to come. It is great to have photos of such an event, but a matric farewell trailer is the cherry on the cake for the students.
Enjoy this event video preview of this stylish and glamorous evening where the matrics had a ball of a time with their fellow peers.
Herewith another clip of their Mnr en Mej Durbie event.
Once upon a time there was a princess so beautiful, and adored by a handsome prince who asked her to marry him. They had a dream wedding on a sun filled day and shared their happiness with family, friends and some very cute and beautifully dressed up children. Believe it or not, we were there to capture every moment of this fairy tale wedding. Inspired by the natural grace of the couple in front of the camera, we whisked them off to different locations to show the radiance that only a newly-wed couple knows. Have a look and you’ll see what we mean.
Special thanks to Yolande Kotze from YSP who did the second shooting.
Nectar and Melody, the happy, but also very lucky couple! They won the Tygervalley Bridal Expo competition which entitled them to free packages from some of the best service providers in the industry. Kronenburg Estate was the stunning venue for the ceremony and we were there to capture Melody and Nectar’s vows. It was great fun working with this radiant couple and the result is a romantic, heartwarming wedding video. Here’s the trailer!

‘Sweet Mary Jane’ is the second single of Blackstoneradio’s debut album, Out of Rock. A noticeable step away from their signature groove rock style of music, the hip-swaying, southern folk song lends a fresh new perspective into the band’s musical ingenuity. Following their national search for a leading lady in the video, Blackstoneradio found a script-perfect candidate in the form of Jacqueline Roux. As a talented singer/songwriter herself, Jacqueline performed six of her own compositions at the official video launch event.
Set in the leafy northern suburbs of Cape Town, Altydgedacht Wine Estate played host to the event with great food and drink on offer by the Eat@altydgedacht restaurant.
It was an absolute pleasure to photograph this band at this venue and I had a great time with all the lekker people and beers!
Snacks and Darling beer on tap were served to a select group of fans on a lovely spring evening on the wine farm. Jacqueline Roux is the star in the music video, but she also proved to be a promising singer/songwriter when she opened for Blackstoneradio! Next was an impressive performance from Blackstoneradio. Be sure to follow them so as to not miss their next performance!

Ever heard of a pop–up restaurant?
It’s a new growing trend that started overseas and made its way to Joburg and Capetown. And now even Durbanville has its very own pop-up restaurant scene. I found myself invited to the Pot & Spoon pop-up restaurant, held at Café Ruby on the Klein Roosboom winery just outside Durbanville.
What it basically entails is that the pop-up chef moves into an established restaurant for one evening, bringing his own flair, ideas and skills to the table, while using the facilities of the venue.
The evening brought us a stunning six course meal that left the taste buds tantalized. Particularly memorable was the deconstructed cheesecake. It was accompanied by the best of Klein Roosboom’s wines, and set in a cosy and stylish atmosphere.
If you like good food, ambiance and a good time (and let’s be honest, who doesn’t?), visit The Pot and Spoon on Facebook to find out about their next event.
It was an exciting, sexy and naughty time for Cape Town again, as the SEXPO 2013 was hosted by the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) in the mother city this year.
There was something for everyone, the old, the young, couples and singles. Interesting toys and accessories, live shows, an hilarious hypnotist show, spectacular acrobatics and very sexy bodies in motion! We had a quick talk with Bibi Jones from Digital Playground and fans had the chance to meet her and take pictures.
Have a look at the SEXPO highlights video we put together to showcase the event, but take note, viewer discretion is advised since the video contains scenes of nudity and explicit material. Not suitable for persons under the age of 18.
We were asked to document the annual Wedding Expo that was held at the Tygervalley Centre. The centre was filled with some of the best service providers from all over. There were cakes, dresses, photographers, videographers, a fancy limo and even a mime. Brides-to-be had a wonderful time indulging their senses with all that was to see. Have a look at the video, and if you’re getting married at the end of next year, be sure to visit!
Die Burger Bride of the Year was held at Tygervalley Mall and presented by the vibrant and funny Nico & Christi Panagio. In a previous post we revealed some of the photographs that were taken. Now we have the video to show you more! There were 12 brides for each month of the year who paraded on the catwalk showing off their dresses, designed by the best designers alongside other models sporting designer wear. This spectacular event was organized by Cream Library. A group of sponsors gave away a wedding worth R25000 to the very lucky girl, Miss Grobler. Have a look at the video and see which bride was chosen as bride of the year! Thanks to Willem Foster who assisted with the video capturing.
