I met Nondumiso and Sivuyile at their friends’, Neliswa and Mpumelelo’s wedding last year. I had arrived at the Church and parked next to them, whilst waiting for the bride to arrive. I introduced myself to them and we had a brief chat while they waited in their car. I remember thinking what a handsome, glamorous couple they were. I introduced myself as the photographer and they told me that they were getting married the following year and that I was their photographer. I was caught off-guard at time because I couldn’t recall having a booking for them, but I was delighted anyway. Later that night I quickly checked my calendar and realized that their wedding date was still open and I felt a moment of panic. Shortly thereafter I received a call and email from Ndumie to officially book me as their wedding photographer, based on our friendly chat at the Church. I was delighted. They are based in Gauteng, so when they visited family in the Eastern Cape over Christmas, I captured their engagement shoot and I thoroughly enjoyed a relaxed, fun filled few hours with them. I knew that their wedding would be an elegant and sophisticated affair, which took place in the countryside of Tsomo. Wedding planner, Bongi Mafani of Putcomafani Consulting, created a beautiful, romantic ambiance in the marquee tent, with décor and flowers in shades of pink and peach pastels. Thank you Ndumie and Sivu for asking me to capture your special day and being a part of such a memorable occasion. “Wishing you never-ending love and the most happy life together as husband and wife.” A big thank you also to my friend, William Granzier, of Digital Emotion Videography for the awesome wedding film footage – just love the aerial footage captured too.
