Meagan and Tiaan’s Laid Back Oudtshoorn Wedding at Surval Olive Estate

Yassss! Today is the day! I finally get to share one of the most joyous weddings I have ever photographed! Hosted by Surval Boutique Olive Estate, Meagan and Tiaan said their vows surrounded by the Karoo in all it’s glory… Beautiful people, beautiful light, and the biggest smiles.


Meagan and Tiaan's joy-filled wedding celebration at Surval Boutique Olive Estate


From the minute I met Meags and Tiaan, I couldn’t shake the feeling that this was going to be a day filled with happiness to the brim! From swimming pool antics and dance breaks, to the kind of laughter that leaves you breathless and clapping, this day met all my expectations! We had so much fun and I honestly loved every single minute with them! Looking at these photos you would never say the temperature gauge hit 42 degrees C on the day!

It was my first trip back into the sleepy town of Oudtshoorn since I had to sneak through a really small space in the Cango Caves whilst having a teenage meltdown, and then being bounced off an ostrich haha. Let me tell you, this place hasn’t changed a bit, and that is what makes it so wonderful! One of the newer additions lies on the outskirts of the town and I can’t send enough hearts through the interweb directly to Surval Boutique Olive Estate. If you are looking for Karoo wedding venues with all the perks, then this one should be at the top of your list!


I could go on an on about how incredible and emotional this wedding was, and how beautiful the area is, but let’s be honest… words never do it justice! That is why I became a photographer, after all. So now you get to look at all the amazing photos! Enjoy them alllllll, and don’t forget to leave Meags and Tiaan a love note in the comments section <3
