We specialize in wedding videography with additional services in wedding DJ and wedding photography.
Firstly, we would like to thank you for taking the time to visit our website. We hope you like what you see!
From the very start, we had the goal of creating wedding videos that our clients want to watch over and over again and still get that same flood of emotions every time.
From being engaged for nearly 2 years to finally getting married in March 2017, Jacques and I have completely changed our perspective with regards to what couples needed from their service providers. We really thought that we were doing a great job in providing a fantastic service to our clients (and with a 95% positive review rating, we had the backing of our clients as well) but after having to deal with numerous service providers for our own wedding, we realised that we could drastically improve on the service that we provide to our clients.
We have first-hand experience in having fallen into some nasty pit-falls, that many other videographers and other wedding service providers have fallen into. As such, we have decided to change the core of who we are. We completely restructured our image as well as the service we bring to the table. We decided to create more desirable wedding videography packages in the process – All without compromising in our quality.
Why? We want to deliver a service to each of our clients that exceeds their every expectation.
We hand-craft wedding videos with the utmost love and care so that we can provide you with memories that will last you a lifetime.
As wedding videographers, we always live to be on the cutting edge with new technology and techniques. We strive to keep all of our clients happy and we never release a product that we are less than 100% satisfied with.
We continuously strive hard to become one of the best leading wedding cinematographers, not only in South Africa, but also in the world. This has enabled us to earn a strong support system through our clients.
We strongly believe that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and because every wedding is unique and special in its own way, each and every wedding deserves individual and undivided attention. Our style is romantic, soft and emotive and we set out to create wedding videos that capture the essence of our bridal couples’ special day.
Our focus is to deliver a product with great composition and beautiful imagery including both natural and striking moments. We deliver wedding films that compliment each individual couple’s unique personality. We do not encourage unnatural poses and we do not need retakes. On your special day, we try to be as inconspicuous as possible, your guests should not even know that you’ve hired a wedding videographer.
We are a small, dependable team of videographers and we pride ourselves on the one on one customer service that we provide. As wedding videographers, we feel that personalised communication is the key component to great customer service.

There are long stories and there are short stories.
Simple stories and complex stories.
This, however, is my story.
When I was asked to write a short biography describing who I am, I thought to myself: “Where should I begin?” Should I start in 2013 when I first opened the doors to the wedding videography company now known as 25 Weddings? The good old days where I used to work by myself – for myself? And I charged around R1500 for what is now known as our Professional Package?
Perhaps I could start by describing film school… Waking up every morning at 5am to walk to the train station located just around the corner or attending the most mundane classes on film noir and the French New Wave. (Although I have to admit, some of the classes were beyond interesting…)
Or better yet, maybe it would be best if I start by telling you about my high school days at Somerset College. Bunking classes to secretly attend band practice in the music hall (in retrospect, how secretive can a drummer really be?) or choosing the most anti-art subjects available for the sake of ‘playing it safe’.
However, if I am to be honest with myself, I don’t think my story truly began until I met my beautiful fiancé, Chané Lombard. Chané, being a full time teacher and part time student at the time, gave up what little free time she had and she started assisting me on weddings. In 2014 this wonderful woman decided to give up her own dreams in order to support me in mine. The 25 brand would not be where it is today had it not been for her sacrifices. I literally cannot wait to see where we will go from here.

Hi guys! Thanks so much for taking the time to get to know me.
I’ll be the face beind the e-mails when you send us an enquiry.
Since I can remember, I have always had a love for capturing moments on film, from snapping pictures to making home videos of my childhood pets. If it could be snapped, I caught it on camera.
I am very enthusiastic about my work and I am also a perfectionist (I am pretty sure I got that trait from my dad). I have an extreme eye for detail, which drives Jacques crazy at times.
I love surrounding myself with happy people and working in the wedding industry has given me the opportunity to do just that. I never thought that wedding videos were a necessity until I got married myself and realised that video captured so much more than photos do. It captures those words and emotions that at times get lost with photos.
Taking the step to become a part of the 25 weddings team full time, was the best decision I could have ever made and sharing this experience with my amazing husband makes this journey even more exciting.
Three random facts about me:
Making the decision to be a part of 25 Weddings full time, was one of the best decisions I could have ever made and sharing this experience with my amazing fiancé makes it even more incredible.
