An oasis of life inspiration, an “Energy giving” wedding rather than an “Energy taking” wedding.
Nonki & Rabi’s wedding was an absolute privilege to be a part of. It was in a rural village outside Mthatha in the Eastern Cape, South Africa. A place where the hills seem to roll on for days, only to be interrupted by a colourful mud hut or a herd of cattle.
Take a village full of people, rolling green hills and one gigantic roll of white fabric and you’re guaranteed to have a pretty epic celebration. But fabric, food and festivities don’t make weddings great; people do. Nonki & Rabi, their families and their friends are some of the best you can find. They seem to be able to redefine the word “community” from a noun to a verb.

This is a wedding story that can’t be told in a handful of images, so please take a moment for yourself and let this video transport you to the heart and soul that is Africa.
