Wedding – Dean and Ronelle | Hakuna Matata

Ronelle is the most amazing lady I first met her 7 years ago – she is my beautician and keeps me in tip top shape. When she asked me to photograph her wedding I was over the moon. I knew it was going to be exquisite – she is breath takingly beautiful and I knew the colour and culture of their union would be a photographers dream.

The ceremony was held at the temple in Midrand. I thought like I had walked into India – the beautiful bright vibrant colours and smell of incense burning was captivating. All the ladies in their beautiful beaded and embroided sari’s made for a colourful and joyous event.

Dean is an incredible person he surprised Ronelle with organising a venue for their reception. Not only did he organise EVERYTHING (the decor, the cake, the DJ, the gifts and the food) he organised it in one day! The reception was held at Hakuna Matata and it was the perfect ending to a beautiful day.

Thank you for asking me to capture your special day it was a real privilege.
