Ugandan and Zulu Wedding

Morning Precious! I hope you’ve recovered from the madness of black Friday. I tried to get in on the action but found it quite difficult. My server kept on crashing on me.  I’ll have to wait for the January sales I think …Enough about bargains; I’ve this stunning Ugandan and Zulu wedding to share.Ugandan and Zulu Wedding

I get way too excited to feature a mixture of two cultures. It’s interesting to me to see that many African cultures have similarities. We are not that different after all. So when I accidentally bumped into the wedding of Kwanele and Richard I was intrigued and their images are so beautiful I had to feature them. Kwanele from Zulu heritage made quite a stunning bride in her traditional Ugandan attire for the first wedding. Although she’s Zulu I found it rather cool that she chose to wear Ugandan attire for their traditional wedding. It was a happy atmosphere, much dancing and laughter.

For a moment I thought the wedding was captured in a foreign country but as I looked closely, I realise it’s our gorgeous Jozi. Kwanele and Richard wed in a cold winter day and had their portraits session in the heart of Newton. When I look at their images I think style, gorgeousness and madly in love.
