Zanele and Mfusi came from Johannesburg to celebrate their union at La Paris. What a perfect choice for this elegant ceremony and lavish reception! Zane got ready at one of the suites on the estate, filled with antiques and artwork. This historical interior made a great background for all the details shots, especially the pair of Louboutin hells (my favourite)! The ladies enjoyed preparation, with lots of laughter and some bubbles to take of the edge. Once all the bridesmaids were in their gowns, the ladies helped the Bride into her dress. Soon everyone was looking glamorous for this Khosa wedding photography, we started with portraits. I just LOVE how Xhosa ladies pose for photos! They own the camera and they enjoy having their photographs taken. soon we left for the ceremony, held in a nearby garden.
The ceremony location was crowned with a massive steel gazebo, draped in white fabric and topped up with flowers. The groomsmen were already present, when the bridesmaids appeared. The last was of course much anticipated Bride! Zanele looked magical with her long veil, covering the mermaid-cut dress. The guests cheered the couple, as Zanele and Mfusi exchanged rings and kissed for the first time as Mr and Mrs. The confetti was coming from all around, as Bride and Groom walked through and we snapped away their Xhosa wedding photography.
The reception was held in the main La Paris hall. This magnificent room, topped with three giant crystal chandeliers, combines to roughness of the structure with the luxury of the decor. The room was filled with flowers and candles, looking magical in the evening light. The bridal party enter dancing, followed by the Bride and Groom. There was lots of dancing throuought the night, even a full choreographed routine, where most of the guests took to the dancefloor. It seemed like they all knew the moves! We were mesmerised by the spectacle and captured it all in Xhosa wedding photography.
We wish Zanele and Mfusi only love and happiness on their journey! We are honoured to be chosen to capture their memories.
