Carmen and Xavier are from Johannesburg, and came down to Durban to have a perfect uShaka Wedding. KZN did its best to comply and gave us a beautiful day, the most perfect weather you could hope for. We started with some portraits of the bride and groom in Glenashley, where the family was staying. The family holiday house was a bustle of energy, with celebrations, makeup artists and children everywhere in sight :)
The ceremony was truly unique, held at the pier of Moyo at uShaka. A beautiful altar was set up right at the end of the pier, with chairs set up for the guests. Not many couples are able to say that they were married on a pier, and I'm just happy that I was chosen to photograph the moving ceremony. After the ceremony we were able to use uShaka for some creative shots, which was a lot of fun. Usually a tourist, it was refreshing to see it in a different light. The reception was held at the main Moyo restaurant and was a real blast. Moyo's hosting of the reception was great, the decor and table settings so eclectically suited to the entire wedding. We were treated to an amazing performance by the dancers at Moyo, a real treat.
After the ceremony we headed to the ship around the Upper Deck next to Moyo, and were able to get some really creative shots of the newlyweds. We rounded off the night with more dancing and celebrating, a perfect end to what they were looking for, the perfect uShaka wedding :)
