This is a favourite annual event we look forward to. The first one we covered was Corporate Traveller at Playing for Pink, which I thought would be extremely difficult to top, but each year they manage to hold another beautiful event to show their clients their appreciation. This year was at Laghams in Fourways. Delicious food, amazing lucky draw prizes, beautiful setting, lovely live music, and of course, an open bar! Photography by Leanne Russell Williams.
Two weird things happened on this shoot. The first is that my very old friend from primary school, Rela, was awake and beautified at 5 am!

Jenny and Vlad, friends of Rakesh and Harsha, chose Oakfield Farm to celebrate the start of their marriage. The day was filled with love, laughter, and of course, phenomenal light.
