We first met Renee and her beautiful yet very humble family at the wedding of her sister Elaine to Rueben, you can see more of that here.
Fast forward to 2018 and Renee & Mark perfectly blended together their Indian and South African backgrounds in a wedding to remember! Lots of wonderful traditions mixed with modern styling. Their riverside marquee reception with whiskey and gin bars located inside tee pees was a very memorable huge party that put a smile on everyone’s faces.
A lovely quote from Renee sums up the day:
“The best part about our wedding day was looking around to a room full of people who are your closest friends and family. It really is such a special feeling. From the meaningful ceremony to dancing all night, it really was the best day of our lives!”
Kind words from Renee & Mark:
“We love how DeRay and Simcoe captured the emotion and excitement of our wedding day. The photos are really natural and filled with warm light and colours. They captured so many little details which we love. Great memories for us to look back on.”
Renee and Mark chose a flushmount Queensberry wedding album with matching duplicate albums for their parents. All featured navy leather covers.
We were delighted when Renee and Mark’s wedding was chosen to feature on one of our favourite wedding blogs, Polka Dot bride. You can check it out here They called it an “elegant, waterside wedding” and we couldn’t agree more!

Lastly two very special photos, sisters Renee and Elaine, married 3.5 years apart, Both each other's "maids of honour" and both sharing a tender moment with their Dad when he first saw them in their wedding dresses with Mum looking on. Not set up by me at all but I had tears in my eyes when I took the second image years after the first, realising how the moment had repeated itself without anyone even trying. How wonderful life can be when you least expect it.
