Cavalli Estate Wedding

Shaa’ista & Josh

Shaa’ista and Josh’s Cavalli Estate wedding was certainly one for the books.  An entire weekend of festivities.  And my oh my, Shaa’ista was one exquisite bride.  From a glamorous Bollywood princess at the mehndi function on the Friday night, to a beautiful elegant bride on Sunday.  Wow, you blew us away with your beauty!   There was Indian dancing,  there were emotional moments during the Nikkah ceremony,  a lunchtime reception and then  an intimate candlelit dinner with close family and friends  at Cavalli Estate.  This wedding certainly had it all!

On the Friday night of Shaa’ista & Josh’s Cavalli Estate wedding weekend, we shot the mehndi function.  How special to have held it at Shaa’ista’s childhood home with so many fond memories of her growing up there.  It was all about music, mehndi and moves on the dance floor.  How awesome are Shaa’ista and Josh’s outfits?  Everyone certainly had a good time, with family joining forces to prepare the yummiest of food.

On Saturday evening it was the Nikkah ceremony at the beautiful Masjid Quds.

There’s something very sacred about shooting in a mosque, and it’s always a privilege for us to be able to cover this part of the ceremony.  It’s an emotional time, especially for the brides family.  It’s often hard to hold back the tears (not to mention those of the photographer hiding behind the camera!)

On Sunday there was a lovely lunch function followed by the most amazing couple shoot at Cavalli Estate.  How lucky were we to have been allowed in the stables, and even MORE lucky to have the most beautiful model called Whisky join us for part of the couple shoot.

The evening dinner was laid back and fun followed by a few more dance moves.

Shaa’ista and Josh, what an honour it was for us to be a part of your special Cavalli Estate Wedding weekend.  We hope our images tell the story of a legend wedding weekend and that you will treasure the memories for many years to come.

    You only get a chance to experience a day like this once in your life. I’ll never forget walking my new wife through our reception, seeing her in her dress for the first time, dancing with her in our traditional outfits. Now you’ve turned these incredible experiences into tangible memories that I will be able to cherish for the rest of my life. I’m so impressed with how well you’ve managed to capture the atmosphere and emotion of the environment in every picture. You’ve both been so professional with us and our guests throughout, and I’ll forever be thankful for everything you’ve done to make the most important time of our lives something to remember.

    Love Love Love!!! To say Absolutely Stunning is even an understatement… words can just not express how in love I am with these pictures, each one better than the other. It makes me feel like dressing up and go dancing in the rain 🙂 I remember how super stoked I was that day when Shaa’ista agreed to have this amazing team capture their most cherished memories. I was even more excited when I saw you “in action” once again that weekend and then seeing the sneak peaks OH MY WORD, just could not wait to see them all!! When I eventually got through all the photos I was truly blown away.
    Thank you Andre & Selma – two amazing souls who go out of their way to not only capture the gorgeous couple but takes time to engage with the families & other guests too. We were blessed to have you as a part of the festivities. It was definitely a wedding weekend for the books – Not sure how you managed to capture each detail so perfectly, and even more so which to post on the blog, it really must take a lot of time and dedication. Your love and passion for photography certainly shines through your work. I pray that the Almighty grant you not only with happiness and success but good health and strength so that you can continue to enjoy what you do and make other people smile. 🙂

      Oh my goodness. Hamida, your message has literally given me goosebumps. Thank you so much for taking the time to write these beautiful and sincere words. You have no idea what it means to us. In this crazy busy world, most people could not even be bothered to simply say “thank you” but YOU have gone out of your way to write this lovely message for us. And yet it is us who should be thanking YOU for sending this wedding our way. ♥ Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We do hope our paths cross again. xxx
