The first day I saw the quant caravan, I was smitten with the eclectic way it just unashamedly attracted and owned the attention it received. I simply had to meet the person with this unique sense of décor style. (And, I also just HAD to see the inside of the caravan). Of course, the interior was just as captivating as the exterior.
I felt like Alice, entering a universe that was designed to lure you into the magnificent world of candy – the old school type. Gumballs, candy floss and marshmallows and BUNNIES… Moments of reminiscing galore! Pink flamingos, bright wallpaper and the compulsory checkered floor! I was simply over the moon and child like excited.

The couple behind this amazing little caravan, aptly named: Michelle’s Candy Van, is as interesting and happy as the van. A great team creating gourmet bubble waffles for kitchen teas, weddings and birthday parties. Believe me, the waffles are exquisite to see and to nibble on! We instantly became friends and the next ‘sensible’ step was a couple photography session to celebrate them as a couple and of course – the perfect caravan.
Michelle was in her element and keenly started planning their outfits and props. The colour scheme is a happy and bright one. Ranging from turquoise, bright pink, the greenest of green, sky blue adding gold as a playful twist. This was by far one of the happiest couple sessions I have had the privilege to capture. Michelle and Adriaan have a great playful sense of humor. Humour and fun was the exact end result that we set out to achieve – and we achieved it with success.
