Churchills Civil Ceremony – Nadja + Sandile

Nadja and Sandile are the type of people who I love to photograph. Besides being fun loving, well traveled, interesting humans with ambition and drive, they have the best facial expressions! I was so pleased when they chose me to photograph their three wedding ceremonies. Yes you heard that right  – They shall be saying ‘I do’ three times and I get to capture all the magic. These pics here are of their legal civil ceremony which happened at Churchills restaurant in Morningside. Next year I will be photographing their traditional white wedding and traditional zulu wedding. After the ceremony we went to take a few fun family portraits and their kids were so well behaved and so much fun!

Thank you Nadja and Sandile for picking me. I am so glad this is only the beginning of our journey together!

Jacki, you have beautifully captured their true essence of pure love, joy, incredible life-spirit, explosive energy and happiness… These photos are a true reflection of who they are.

    Lovely pictures!!! And yes, they are a great family. I’m so happy to know them and received so much support from them. I met Nadja last year on the first day at Brunel University London. Never imagined that that day would lead me to have such a great friendship with her and family. So happy for Nadja and Sandile’s marriage. May all of you will stay in happiness, always!
