Arlo and Genevieve's wedding at Umtamvuna River Lodge.
They met while on the movie set for Mad Max. Genevieve being from Australia while Arlo from our very own tip of Africa. It didn’t take me long to figure out that I was dealing with a crazy fun bunch of creatives.
They chose the stunning Umtamvuna River Lodge down the South Coast, a place I have been looking forward to shooting for some time. I arrived excited for the boat trip and epic spots they have around the river. But as I arrived the rain pulled in and then the boat that was supposed to take us out onto the river had to go in for maintenance…but like the Australian saying goes ” You can’t dampen a koala’s billabong by throwing a boomerang at a shrimp on the barbie, mate!” …Ok , so I might have made that up but Gen’s friends and family did throw a lot of Aussie slang around that kept spirits high.
The monster pic was something that Arlo and Genevieve wanted to do. I had seen it done with a T-Rex but had never tried to do it before. Knowing they worked in the movie industry I went all out! I have to give credit to the bridal party, they really gave it their all.
All set and done, it was an epic day filled with smiles and celebrations.
congrats to them both and all the best!
