Mendhi, Hurdee, Welcome Dinner – Part 1 of a 5 day Hindu Wedding – Shani + Ashay

I’ve shot hundreds of weddings in my time and I can honestly say that up until this point none of them have involved a holi fight, an aquarium and a magic projection cake! Shani and Ashay’s 5-day Hindu wedding extravaganza was a spectacular event that will remain in my heart forever. It was so much more than a few functions designed to marry off a couple it was an experience for all the senses and so many of our emotions!

Old Mill Drift Clarens Gay Wedding – Drew + Brian

Drew is a romantic who loves fairy tales, unicorns, sunbeams and ponies! He is without a doubt one of the best hair stylists in Durban, if not South Africa, who also has a knack for making women look and feel beautiful! Drew takes his job very seriously, I remember years ago he had a perm done to himself as he wanted to know exactly what it felt like to have frizzy, out of control hair! The perm is now gone and these days he is sporting a pony tale of perfectly conditioned locks that would have wig makers in a frenzy! When he is not combing hair you might find him climbing trees or cooking up a feast. Chances are he will be with Brian!

Since these two rather gorgeous young chaps got together they have been inseparable! As long as I have known Drew he has wanted to be in a relationship with his soul mate. Brian is a chiropractor who rides horses, is fiercely intelligent and very good looking. Brian grounds Drew and loves and respects him for all that he is. Brian is a healer with a kind heart and in Brian Drew found not only a soul mate but a husband!

An ode to Lizzy – 4 years of Liz + Jax

I recently shot a wonderful 5-day Hindu wedding and when I got to the end of it I felt an immense sadness. This most definitely had to do with the fact that I push myself beyond what is normal when I shoot any wedding and had a bad case of adrenal burn out which is something I suffer from, but it also had to do with the realisation that it was the last wedding where my assistant Elizabeth would be working with me on a typical wedding shoot. This is my ode to her!

Rainy Oyster Box Beach Wedding – Carla + Neil

Neil and Carla have a beautiful daughter called Ava. One day Ava wished upon a wishing tree that her parents would get married and on the 8th of April 2018 that dream came true! Despite the threat of gale force winds, torrential rain and a massive Durban storm, Carla’s wish turned to reality and they got married on the beach in Umhlanga. The haededas stuck around for the ceremony but the rain stayed away for just long enough for them to say their I do’s and hug all of their loved ones! After this very lucky beach wedding, they went on to the Oyster Box hotel to celebrate in style and danced the night away in the grand Pearl Room.
