Christine Meintjes captures the essence of beauty, not only in a wedding sense but also captures lifestyle images that inspires us. We have worked closely with her on collaborative projects and thought it’s time for our readers to meet Christine on a more personal level:
1. Except for weddings, which things to you like to capture in your free time?
All things lifestyle – I have an avid love for beautiful interior, food and fashion. Naturally I love to take photos of my family and my beautiful little nephew, Daniel.
2. What’s your favourite wedding colour combination
I’m a minimalist at heart – I adore simplistic weddings and layers of white-on-white. I am however a huge fan of clients who have the courage to pull of a creative affair that’s out of the ordinary.
3. The perfect honeymoon spot
Iaan and I had a lovely time in Mauritius on our own honeymoon but we recently had the privilege to spend some time in Greece and I must admit, I cannot imagine a more idyllic honeymoon destination!
4. What’s trending in the 2015 wedding scene
The past year we saw loads of botanical inspiration – bold colour pops and amazing floral installations, draping from the roof or abundantly spread across tables. Minimalistic, Scandinavian inspiration was very big too – from simplistic foliage to neutral and natural themes.
5. Whats your favourite celeb wedding ever!?
Hmmm… I recently photographer Megan & JP Pieteresen’s wedding and I must admit I really enjoyed being behind the scenes. There was so much fun going around and it was a privilege to be part of such a beautiful event – the styling was incredible, very natural and minimalistic with a subtle flair of elegance. It’s always amazing to shoot weddings that has such a natural synergy with my own brand.
6.Winter of Summer wedding?
If I had to choose one I’d say summer, but I must admit I am more fond of spring and autumn – the colours, the milder temperatures, the crispness of autumn and beautiful blooms during spring.
