Melissa and Chris’s Love Story at Evergreen Estate

Evergreen Estate is nestled amidst the picturesque landscapes on the border of South Africa and Swaziland. It stands as a testament to timeless love and enchanting beauty. We had the honour of being able to capture the story of Melissa and Chris, who chose Evergreen Estate as the backdrop for their unforgettable wedding day.

The Wedding Ceremony

The surroundings at Evergreen Estate provides an exquisite setting for outdoor ceremonies and stunning wedding portraits. It felt truly magical to take images of Melissa and Chris as they exchanged their vows on a beautiful mountain-top. It embodied the very essence of wedding romance.



As a team of wedding photographers and videographers, we’ve had the privilege of capturing countless love stories. There’s something special about being away from the city, on a mountain, overlooking Swaziland, and having a couple exchange vows in front of  their closest family and friends.

It lends itself to an amazingly intimate setting, and once the vows were exchanged, and Melissa and Chris said the “I do’s”, we didn’t have to go very far to have some amazing bridal party shots, and the location encouraged the free-spirited emotions that ensued when the rest of the guests went down to canapés.

Couple’s Portraits at Evergreen

When it comes to wedding photography, there’s one aspect that truly stands out as pure magic: capturing couple’s portraits. From the moment Melissa and Chris had some time to themselves, there were special moments in glances, stolen kisses and tender embraces. As a wedding photographer, there’s the privilege of being able to freeze these heartfelt interactions in time, and the mountainous backdrop, along with sunset lighting provided the perfect combination.
It was a truly special moment, and what made it even more special was being able to provide Melissa and Chris with wedding photos that encapsulated the emotions they felt on the day, and a way for them to relive that moment.

After finishing with the couple’s photos, we made our way to the wedding party. Nestled atop a remote mountain, far from the hustle and bustle of city life, this serene setting provided an atmosphere of unparalleled intimacy. Surrounded only by the breathtaking vistas and their closest loved ones, Melissa and Chris celebrated in a way where time seemed to slow, allowing for genuine connections and candid moments to flourish.


The seclusion encouraged guests to be their authentic selves, resulting in truly candid and heartwarming moments that translated into stunning wedding photos. It was a brilliant day spent with those closest to them. The guests left Evergreen with renewed peace and tranquillity. A brilliant wedding venue as the setting for a really special occasion.
