We met with Junior and Dali about a year before their wedding. It was only then that we realized we had done his sisters wedding a year earlier. So naturally we knew how much fun this wedding was going to be, as his sisters wedding was a very memorable. We only met them again on their wedding day and we were right on the money with how much fun the wedding was going to be.
The wedding began in a rustic church in East London where the couple said “I do”, to the sound of much celebration and cheer. From their we drove to a beautiful garden in central East London. The photo shoot was a very quick one and the gardens gave a beautiful backdrop to the already beautiful looking newlyweds. I do remember it being an incredibly hot day which more than likely also influenced the short duration of the photo session.
It was now time for the reception which was held at a private residence in East London. A giant tent provided ample space for the nearly 200 strong attendees. With Dali being from America and Junior being South African, a name giving ceremony was also held. It was here that Dali would be given her new Xhosa name. The traditional African dancers also added a fantastic energy to the event with their incredibly energetic presence. The speeches were of the highest level, something I always pay attention to at weddings for some reason. Junior’s father in particular delivered a show stopper. A performance which matched his delivery at his daughters wedding two years prior. This was a wonderful wedding to be part of and Junior & Dali, we wish you all the best for the future, wherever on the globe it might be.
