This story has to be one of the most romantic stories we have had a chance to be apart of.
Anesh contacted us in May 2015 for his wedding in Jan 2016. In his call, he mentioned that he and Arisha's parents would like to meet with us. We were a bit concerned that Arisha would not be meeting us and that we were a small part of a really big surprise. However after we met, we were left speechless by this big gesture, and possibly that best surprise we have had a chance to be apart of. Anesh was planning to whisk Arisha away to Paris to propose to her.The time frames were short, so her parents were planning her dream beach wedding and her engagement ceremony behind the scenes. Hence the whole thing had to be a surprise till the proposal.
Between fake planes tickets and secret messages they all managed to pull of a beautiful surprise, which makes for a story nothing short of amazing and incredibly heartfelt.
When I look at these shoots, I can hardly believe we did this. Mits and I have come a long way in the past 4years and it’s thanks to all my couples. Without their confidence in our ideas we wouldn't have seen some of the most beautiful places. If you've ever seen spring blossoms you'll agree with me when I say it takes your breath away. I must admit timing these flowers all the way from Johannesburg was not fun. I'm a perfectionist and once I have an idea in my head it very difficult to let go of the idea. How beautiful would a small intimate wedding would look in between these isles of trees? Looking at these photos now I almost forget that it was about 10degrees that day. The 3 of us were warm but Sheetal braved the cold in this beautiful outfit. Their Indian wedding took place in summer place Johannesburg around March this year, we managed to shoot them in the wedding outfit but not the reception outfit hence we decided to do another shoot. There colour of her reception lehenga was so bright and vibrant, she looked beautiful in any location you put her in. I was quite chuffed that the mountains turn purple in franschhoek at sunset, it matched here outfit perfectly! If you missed there beautiful garden wedding on our blog click here

_ After endless delays at the airport, we finally made our way to Durban. Arriving at Radiant Image, we now understood how Khadija found her way into Bollywood as an exceptional makeup artist Venusha looked lovely. The location selected for Venusha and Neshav was fitting considering that Neshav is a pilot for Comair. We really loved Venusha's idea of having him use his uniform as this was a perfect way to personalize their shoot. The wedding ceremony was personal and romantic, followed by some heartfelt words and tears by Venusha's sister. Click here to view more images
