This has got to be a contender for the biggest wedding of 2014. Muhammad & Rumaisa celebrated their union with 1500 guests at the Durban Exhibition Centre, which I’m guessing is one of the only venues big enough to house a celebration of this magnitude. I was told by one of the guests that there are definately certain neighbourhoods in Durban and Pietermaritzburg that were empty. The décor, lighting, tables, flowers, sound and staging were all top class, it was an event one won’t easily forget.
My work started the night before at Rumaisa’s pre-wedding function which was held at the popular NMJ Hall in Durban, then we did the creative shoot on the Umhlanga beach the following week. I’ve put it all together in one long blog post, so grab a cup of coffee and sit back because it’s a big one. In March I’m going to be shooting Muhammad’s sister Faaria’s wedding too which I’m looking forward to. Thanks so much Muhammad & Rumaisa for choosing me to shoot your big day, hope you like the pics!
