“I’m Nadia Basson, a Cape Town based wedding photographer. I studied photography through a photography institute in New York and it is my absolute passion to capture and share special moments with my clients. As a newlywed I have a great understanding of what a bride wants out of her dream wedding and as a photographer I paid close attention to the details on our wedding day, especially when it came to our photos.”

Nadia Basson Photography 2 - Nadia Basson

“I handle all my shoots through that point of view, as if it was my big day and to provide exactly what I expected from my photographer. I will always have an assistant or second shooter with me on the day of a wedding to make sure we cover all the areas of your special day. God gave me an absolute love for photography, to capture the love between people, and to be able to share and capture these special moments with clients makes me the happiest person on earth.”

Nadia Basson Photography 1 - Nadia Basson Nadia Basson Photography 4 - Nadia Basson

“Every photo tells a unique story in its own way and I capture each moment to the best of my ability so that the photo can speak for itself. Our work also featured on some top wedding blogs namely Confetti Daydream, Mooi troues, Troukoors, Top Vendor Wedding Awards, South Bound Bride & Isle Society. I’m very excited and curious to meet my new clients and to see what my journey will be as a photographer…as said: “success is a journey, not a destination” and I’m looking forward to have you apart of my successful journey.

A weekend away with friends and family to celebrate their love. This is what Ryan and Saara wanted for their special day. The scene was perfect, as they are both surfers and ocean lovers, getting married closer to the ocean would not have been possible. On the wooden deck of Tintswalo, facing the ocean, they joined hands and said “I do!”

Special moments will be cherished forever by Saara and her girls, getting ready together on her wedding day. We where all dressed in beautiful gowns made by Love Angela. All the ladies had their hair and makeup done by Minke du Plessis.

Saara’s beautiful wedding dress was from Tying The Knot Bridal Boutique. An absolute perfect fit, flowing in the breeze and sparkling in the sunlight.

Ryan and his groomsmen where getting ready in one of the ocean side rooms, to be with his closest friends just before the happiest moment in his life will forever be a special memory. All their suits where made by Lockstock & Barrel Tailors. Saara wrote her husband to be a personal letter that he read while getting dressed.

Ryan met Saara half way up the isle, kissed her hand hand walked the rest of the way with her while Follow the Sun by Xavier Rudd was playing. A very romantic and meaningful gesture.

One of the couple’s friends, Dayne Rothbletz, married them in a very original way, his words captured their relationship perfectly. We where all laughing and crying, filled with emotions and love.

The sun was setting and the light in the reception area was warming, the smell of the ocean surrounded us and the decor was beach themed. Each table had a special name that related to the ocean. Flowers, starfish, crystals and lights hung from the ceiling creating a fairytale ambience.

We spent the rest of the evening celebrating, eating incredible food and dancing the night away to music from Pravada Live Electronic Jazz Band and Adrian from Next Dimension Entertainment. Saara and Ryan’s first dance was incredible and showed how much love they have for each other.

The Engagement Story

My Wedding Day SA would like to share the story of how Sherri, owner of My Wedding Day SA blog, got engaged. She shares her story below.

I would like to share my journey with you as an official bride-to-be myself. It can be a daunting task, everyone asking, “When are you getting married?” and you have been engaged for exactly 30min. Enjoying the “engagement bubble” is very important as it is probably the shortest, but most exciting time in your relationship.

Though I have always known my fiancé is the one, I never knew how, or when he would propose. To my joy, it was all I ever dreamed and more! The day was perfect, beautiful waves, beautiful weather. I was just opening a bottle of wine at a friends house to watch the sunset when he called and said, he promised our dog that he would take him for a beach walk and he is coming to pick me up. As this is a normal daily routine I did not think anything of it and gladly went along.

Arriving at our favourite beach, Skulpies, we started walking our dog as the sun started to touch the horizon. The light went gold and the smell of the ocean was especially strong was it was one of the few days in Cape Town that didn’t have wind. I am not going to lie, I was secretly thinking in my mind, this would be the perfect moment, just as I have been thinking about all the other perfect moments in the past year.

My dog started crawling through the sand as if it was practised and my fiancé dropped to his knee and acted like my dog found something in the sand, as I got closer to look, there it was! My special, oh so beautiful engagement ring, sparkling in the sunset. He asked, “Baby, will you marry me?” and in total shock I said, “Are you joking? What? Is this real? YES! OF COURSE!” He carefully slipped the ring on my finger and the promise was made.

Still to this day I would love to know how he knew the size, as it is a perfect fit. After tears of joy, sandy feet and salty kisses, he had champagne on ice and a massive bouquet of flowers waiting in the boot of the car and we enjoyed the moment to ourselves with our dog until the sunset. We then went home to call all our friends and family. Most of them stay near by so they all popped in with a bottle of bubbly and celebrated with us.

Never did I think I would be the girl to stick out my hand and scream with excitement, but it is official, I am. The best part of the engagement is the rush of love and happiness we have surrounding us from all our friends and family. I am so grateful and in love.

I will share my journey with you, from venues, dresses, cakes, decor, photography, makeup and hair, the paperwork, wedding planners, the complete package. Follow My Wedding Day SA blog and social media channels to see updates.
