Martha is a very gorgeous Canadian Pharmacist who found herself participating in a volunteer/educational program in South African some years back. One night during her stay, she went out on the town and her eyes just happened to cross paths with the very dapper Doctor Sbu. Little did they both know that this night would change their lives forever. Meeting ones soulmate in a nightclub might not be seen as being particularly romantic but this was the beginning of a long distance love affair. A love affair that went on for well over three years and landed up in a misty marriage in the KZN Midlands.
People came from near and far for this wedding and flew in from all over South Africa and the world. The sun may have hid behind a big blanket of damp mist for most of the day but the atmosphere was warm. I have never photographed a wedding at Netherwood which wasn’t a HUGE party and Martha and Sbu’s wedding was no different!
Martha and Sbu thanks so much for picking me. Besides getting stuck in the mud ….. we loved shooting your wedding! Wishing you all the best for you new life in Canada!
