Faizel & Nusrat had a stunning garden wedding at Riverside Boutique Hotel in Houtbay. With the threatening rain in the week leading up to the wedding and a big storm on Friday flooding parts of Cape Town, a call was made to bring in Bedouin tents. This turned out to look stunning in the space, and reminded me of an intimate garden wedding like in the romantic movies with everyone mingling and having a great time. Even the pouring rain throughout the nikkah and canapes didn’t dampen the spirits of the couple or guests and great conversation, food and coffee was enjoyed the entire afternoon!

Nusrat stunned in a stylish dress and white cape for her nikkah look, after which she changed into a romantic Maggie Sottero ballgown. Faizel was one of the talented people who worked on the spectacular project of the Zeitz MOCAA and Silo Hotel project, so what better backdrop could we ask for than ending off a perfect day with couple photos at this stunning venue.

Image 5 made it into Editor’s Choice and Best of Week, with image 6 also making it into the Best of Year gallery on Mywed.com, a website that lists and awards some of the best wedding photography in the world. Faizel & Nusrat, thank you for trusting me to tell your wedding story, for getting into the poses that seemed silly at the time, for running in the rain and getting soaked but laughing and having fun. This is the stuff that memories are made of!
