Canelands KZN Beach Wedding – Litha + Vusi

Litha and Vusi met over ten years ago during their orientation week at University. Litha must have made an enormous impression on Vusi as he told her within an hour of meeting her that he would marry her one day! This doesn’t surprise me though, Litha is the kind of girl that makes an impression on everyone . She has a way of looking at the world through those almond shaped eyes of hers that often had me guessing what she was thinking.

Over the last decade Litha and Vusi have done a lot of thinking together. What started out as a friendship and study partnership turned into a beautiful romance and they have both successfully qualified as doctors! There is a maturity and respect between the two of them that is beyond their years and I am sure this could be attributed to the trauma that comes with studying medicine!

These two both have a passionate need to live life to the fullest and make a difference, and I am sure that they will continue to inspire each other to do great things. I for one am going to be very interested to see where life takes them in this next decade!

Litha and Vusi it was really an honour to have you guys pick me to capture these special memories for you. Thank you for everything.
