As we drive towards Lesotho from Joburg, the lanscape slowly starts to change – the flat monotony gives way to green foothills and mountains and the air gets sweeter. Once through the border, we make our way through rural villages, endless sweeping fields where teenage herdboys tend their livestock and we marvel at the electric blue sky dotted with puffy white clouds. This country is beautiful!
Xolisiwe and Tshele tied the knot in her hometown of Maseru, a bustling African city that lies in a valley surrounded by mountains. The thing I love most about African weddings is the energy and joy of it – the close and extended families come together and celebrate with abandon…they sing and dance and rejoice. From the church to the reception, this is the very definition of love.
Thank you Tshele for letting us drag you out of the city for the creatives (well, how can you say no when your gorgeous new wife asks so nicely 😉 and Xolisiwe, thank you for being so sweet ! You were the most beautiful bride and we wish you vast amounts of happiness xx
A special thank you to Q’s dad who drove our 4×4 out of the TINY patch of mud that we managed to get stuck in 🙂 no comments please!
And a huge thank you to my second, Corinna, who learnt to shoot Canon rather quickly when her Nikon packed up 😉
