Our very first wedding at Ex Nihilo. It was an extremely windy day in Paarl, but despite the adverse weather conditions, our team produced some fantastic shots!
The little township of Mbekweni has produced many diamonds out of the rough. Our Groom, Sandise was another one of those guys that rose to great heights from humble beginnings. For me, a white South African, it was also a great experience to start with the Grooms preps in his parental home in the heart of this township just outside Paarl. What is special about Sandise’s family, is the value they add to relationships and the way that elders are respected.
Khosi, our shining young bride, got ready at Pearl Valley. From there, both bride and groom travelled to Ex Nihilo, one of the up and coming wedding venues in Paarl. The outdoor ceremony was held in the special decked venue that was built in between the olive groves. The video team walked (or should I say flew) on the wild side, by doing a fly-over with the drone in the super strong winds – shows you what can be done if you’re an experienced pilot.
After the lovely ceremony, the couple enjoyed canape’s and drinks with their guests on the lawn just outside the venue. The couple photos were taken on the grounds in the olive orchard and in the vineyards.

Wedding at Ex Nihilo
Ex Nihilo is a contemporary new wedding venue in the Western Cape, just outside of Paarl. The stunning glass and metal structure is perfectly offset by the natural beauty of the surrounding vineyards and olive grove. We particularly enjoyed taking stunning wedding photos of the couple in the olive grove. The ceremony was held under the beautiful sunlight and a pre-drinks were served in the garden area.
For the reception, all the guests moved to the beautiful banquet area, where a delicious meal was prepared and served by the staff at Ex Nihilo. Speeches were made, drinks were had and everyone enjoyed the celebration. What an amazing start to Khosi and Sandise’s marriage.
