Here is 5 reasons to plan your anniversary trip in the lovely Cape Town, making it unforgettable and sealing the memories with a photo-session.

One of the most meaningful moments in your life will be the day you get married, and a new chapter begins.

Some of the best memories of your engagement and wedding day are the photos you get to keep, share and look back on that instantly takes you back to that exciting time in your life. Having an anniversary celebration photoshoot should not be overlooked or even forgotten.

Having an anniversary shoot is also a chance for you to have some quality time together and reminisce on the moment that changed your life forever. Each year marks the celebration of the wonderful times you both spent together.

Whether you have been married for one year, twenty or sixty years, an anniversary shoot not only give you new memories but also serves as a reminder of your unconditional love for one another.

Because let’s face it, life gets crazy and every now and again you need to stop and remember why you love each other. Make a date out of the photoshoot, after your session go out to dinner, see a movie or just put your phones away and go for a beach walk together.

Reason 1:  Creating new memories together and fall in love all over again

It can be a time to reconnect and bring a little spark. The photos will be such an awesome keepsake. Don’t let the fun and sweet moments pass you by, record your love journey with a love anniversary photoshoot done every now and again to commemorate the milestones in your relationship while reliving those happy moments which you both shared as newly-weds.

Reason 2:  Enjoy moments of reconnecting

Your wedding anniversary is a day where you should spoil yourselves and do something special. A dinner can follow where he might surprise you with a beautiful necklace or a bunch of roses. Do that little extra and capture your special day. A wedding anniversary shoot is also a celebration of shared life and renewed love, so spend an hour or two in front of my lens and let me capture these special moments for you. Whether it’s just the two of you or with your children, love is a celebration of all those little things in between, make every second count.

Reason 3:  Document your life in photos

Photos can help you to remember how both of you grew together as a couple. To make it extra special, you could even wear your wedding gown again (if it’s still in your closet) and get your partner to suit up. It will be a fun way to compare the set of photos with the ones taken on your beautiful day.

Reason 4:  Catch romantic sunsets on the beach

Whether you stay close at Bloubergstrand, Melkbosstrand or even Camps bay, you are in for some gorgeous sunsets. Even if you take a venture up to Table Mountain or a drive to Chapmans’ peak, oh and don’t forget the lovely scenic route to Signall hill.

Cape Town is filled with gorgeous scenes to enjoy and to end your anniversary off with a lovely sunset shoot sealed with a romantic dinner afterwards.

Here is some of the top places within surrounding areas of Table View to enjoy a dinner at:

Homespun / Cattle Baron / Durbanville Hills / De Grendel / Catch 22 / Moyo / Ons Huisie / On the Rocks / Lagoon Beach Hotel and Spa, just to name a few favourites. 

Reason 5:  Be adventurous – connect over new experiences and places – together

If your anniversary day is over a weekend, don’t neglect a time away. Be adventurous and book a romantic getaway for the two of you to rekindle the flame and to remember the honeymoon time.

Here are a few places and ideas to get you into the spirit for a weekend away. You can book a night or two into a hotel, walk the beach, grab an ocean-front lunch, feed Giraffes at the Giraffe House, going for a game drive at Buffelsfontein wildlife Reserve or even go horse riding in Noordhoek if it’s something that you always wanted to do. Make it special and make it count. You are two beautiful people sharing such a beautiful love and deserves such beautiful treats.

Sweet couple


To name a few, Lagoon Beach Hotel / Dolphin Beach Hotel & Spa / Blaauwberg Beach Hotel / Sonskyn / The Blue Peter Hotel.

If you love travelling and exploring, I can certainly recommend Club Mykonos in Langebaan (a must visit there is Boesmanland Plaaskombuis), or if you are heading a different direction towards Chapman’s Peak, I’d recommend Monkey Valley Resort. Cape Town is filled with the most beautiful places, sceneries, from sea views to mountain views, whatever your heart desire, Cape Town won’t disappoint. “,

I hope you enjoyed this post and that your next anniversary will be even more special!
