This was my first Belair Wedding and what a beautiful celebration this was! I first met Obayd and his family about 5 years ago when I did a family friend’s wedding in Paarl. In the years following that, I have done many, many shoots in this circle. So when Obayd’s turn came around to get married, I was naturally humbled that the family still chose me after so many years – thank you!
I have done a few very hot weddings in my career. This includes a wedding in the Namib desert and lots of weddings in Seychelles on the equator. But wow, Obayd & Brigita’s Belair Wedding in Paarl was probably the hottest wedding I have ever shot! Nevertheless, Brigita looked incredibly beautiful with stunning make up. Make Up done by Donna Taylor Make Up and Hair.
Muslim Wedding Ceremony
After the Muslim ceremony, we took the couple portraits on the grounds of this beautiful estate. We were blessed with an amazing sunset after the heat of the day. The Belair Wedding venue is stunning for the reception. I must say the flowers and décor was amazing. With the views from the venue, not much is needed and Obayd & Brigita’s choice of glass and whites perfectly complimented the setting.
The reception was filled with heartfelt speeches and a wonderfully prepared meal. Thank you Obayd and Brigita for choosing me as your wedding photographer. And also thank you for your family’s hospitality over the years and always making me feel so welcome and appreciated!
The Beautiful Belair Wedding Venue
Belair wedding venue is one of the most beautiful wedding venues in the Cape Winelands that I have had the privilege to photograph a wedding at. The quint garden chapel covered with ivy is gorgeous. You have views for days and the glass reception area makes for a very pretty backdrop for your reception. I also made use of the accommodation that was perfect and even came with an outdoor shower and a pool (much needed in the heat of Paarl). Breakfast was personally crafted by the owner and was delicious! I can recommend Belair wedding venue & accommodation very highly.
This wedding was awarded ‘wedding of the week’ by the very popular MyWed.
