Lielen and Kavitha- The Wedding Story

I first met her Dad (Dr Lochan Naidoo) and her family, when I was assigned to cover the photography for the arrangetram of her baby sister, a few years ago. Lielan and Kavitha, whom are both based out of Johannesburg, exchanged traditional vows on the 13 April 2013. The ceremony was held at The popular Coastlands Umhalnga Hotel…We met for a pre creative shoot at her house in The Mount Edgecombe Country Estate.

Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.

Heres what they had to say:

Where did you first set eyes on him.

lielan and I first met in 2001(matric) at tuition sessions held at the University of Kwa-zulu Natal. We dated then for 3 months but that ended as he ended going to study at the University of Pretoria and me going to University of Cape Town. We had stayed associates communicating occasionally. Then in 2009 he and a group of friends were coming to Cape town for a visit, so we had decided a reunion would be great.
