PET FRIENDLY WEDDING VENUE - WARTHOGS BUSH CAMP

If you can’t bear the thought of walking down the aisle without both your best friend and fiancée, you should stop by Warthogs Bush Camp in Magaliesburg. The pet friendly Warthogs Bush Camp is now open for weddings with your furry friends as ring bearers, confetti carriers and givers of wet sloppy kisses to anyone within arm reach.

Set just 2km from Askari Game Lodge & Spa in Magaliesburg, Warthogs Bush Camp is a wonderful venue for bush-weddings as they are quite happy to tailor-make any event to suit your requirements. If bush hospitality and simplicity is your thing, you would love the unpretentious but hearty brunch on offer which includes pap, wors and eggs, to dinner themes around braai menus, spit braais and potjiekos recipes.

“As I approached the venue, my creative mind kicked into high gear”, says Christa Badenhorst, Group Marketing Manager of Guvon Hotels & Spas. “The main reception area is an impressive thatch dome and this is the ideal spot to welcome your wedding guests with a special wedding themed cocktail and small canapes or snacks.”

Choosing a photographer

HOW TO CHOOSE A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

When planning a wedding, one of the most important considerations the bridal couple will have to make is the choice of a photographer.

You may be tempted to let Uncle Harry take your wedding photos on your big day with his compact camera. Friends and family may even suggest handing out single-use cameras to all the guests, but whilst both these options are inexpensive and might (perhaps) even produce some half decent pictures, hiring a professional photographer for your wedding will ensure that you have many beautiful photographs to show for it.

I have met couples who approach the selection of their wedding photographer almost as an after-thought. They tend to get so caught up with all the fun and visual wedding details the guests will see such as e.g. the cake, the wedding decor, the gown, etc. – but they often do not consider that selection of the wedding photographer is just as important. After all, who will record all those fun moments and visual details?!

To shop for a wedding photographer is not the same as selecting a gown or a bridal bouquet. When selecting your gown or bouquet you can see something tangible before you make your decision, but with the selection of your photographer, you are, in some instances, at the mercy of a super-salesperson or your own intuition.

With many couples PRICE is usually the main determining factor, even though there is NEVER going to be a second chance. Unfortunately there has never been anything written that gives the couple a true guideline as to how to select the one person who could supply them with a heart full of memories to last a lifetime.

SO, how do you find the right wedding photographer with the personality and the photographic style that is right for you? What are the latest styles, and why should you choose digital, color, or black-and-white images? What kind of album presentation will you want? How much should you expect to pay? These are only some of the important factors that you will have to consider in choosing a wedding photographer.
