Charnell of Charnell Timms Photography shares her thoughts in shooting this gorgeous day for Neisha and Alessandro …
“I met Neisha whilst photographing her daughters wedding a few months earlier, and moments after she took the mike into her hands to sing her rendition of the famous Etta James song ‘At Last’ I realized I was witnessing a live showpiece miracles. It is always so inspiring to hear, that despite international success of being a singer in Dubai for 20 years, these brides still return ‘home’ with their international partners to ‘Tie the knot‘.
And so it was with Neisha and Alessandro’s international wedding in the garden courtyard at Moyo on the grounds of Spier Wine Estate in Stellenbosch was an ideal choice for this intimate celebration. The tree-lined garden courtyard is filled with bedouin tents and gazebos made from wrought iron, beautiful copper and mosaic water features and an almost endless array of fairy tale pink roses. A brilliant blend of romance and African ambiance.
The bride could not have blended in with her surrounding more perfectly–from her African footprint shoes, to her sandstone dress, to her bold and beautiful Protea wedding bouquet, but most importantly, this couple’s ability to party to the rhythm of their roots. The photoshoot of the respective country flags turned out to be the highlight of the shoot, and if you look through the photo’s I am sure you might agree on this
