Farah & Adnan’s Colourful Muslim Wedding

Cavalli Estate Wedding Venue – Stellenbosch

The colourful floral creations by Fleur Le cordeur, the beauty of Farah the bride, the jewellery, the food, the stunning outfits the guests wore, the kindness & warmth of the people, and the beautiful moments between Farah & Adnan. This wedding was from beginning to end, spectacular! With almost 400 guests attending the lavish celebration at the beautiful Cavalli Estate, this was surely the highlight of my career as a Wedding Photographer.

From the couple

“Our wedding was a typical Indian extravaganza: large, loud and never ending! Michelle was there from beginning to end going above and beyond what was necessary. We were so glad and grateful for all the effort , love and passion that was so evident during the events. Even when all the events stretched past the agreed timeline there she was , with a constant smile , patient demeanor and passionate aura about her. To top this, the resulting wedding photos !! I have no words!! She captured EVERYTHING I was hoping she would and more.”

“When searching through countless photographers we came across Michelle’s website and knew straight away she was the person we wanted for the wedding. Professional yet completely down to earth and personal. When I met Michelle to go through all the events , cultural and religious, which were all new to her she embraced it with a warm and excited smile and made me feel like I had left it in the best hands possible.”

“Adnan and myself are in awe of the moments she captured. There is emotion, love, beauty, simplicity, colour and softness that extrudes from them. A feeling which we hope to hold on to in our relationship going forward. As Michelle would say “sooooo mooooi!”. We still don’t know which pictures to frame in our house as they are all just amazing! We are so grateful and a “thank you” seems so insufficient for all that you did for us. From the bottom of our hearts … we thank you and wish you are blessed with goodness.” Farah and Adnan

My favourite moment of the entire day was this one. After the Nikkah ceremony, everyone started to congratulate the couple. As the crowd started to clear, Farah & Adnan made their way through the crowd into each other’s arms.
