This is the incredible story of 2 people from different cultures who found each other. Love knows no boundaries and can move beyond language and other barriers. We were priviledged to witness and tell the story of Gugu and Kagisho- the celebration of their traditional wedding in the town of Vryheid, the coming together of two families as well as their celebration of love in the beautiful city of Cape Town.
Family and friends travelled from all over the world to witness and be part of this celebration. May you journey in love continue to grow and inspire others
An incredible celebration of love between Lohandi and Richard Whitmore at the beautiful Allesverloren Function & Conference venue.

"Dis Vrydagoggend; einde van die jaar en ek is moeg...effens laat en nog meer "effens" befoeterd.
En dan kry ek jou e-pos en vir 4 minute staan die wereld stil en is ons weer daar...by ons troudag.
Dankie. Dankie vir hierdie ongelooflike vasvang van ons: oopgebreek. broos. spontaan. eg.
Dit is die grootste trougeskenk nog.
Julle subtiele manier van teenwoordig wees het ons opgeval- nie vir een oomblik was ons ongemaklik met die kamer rondom ons nie. Dankie vir die respek waarmee julle ons toegelaat het om asem te haal en elke oomblik in te drink.
Julle is absoluut briljant en dit was 'n voorreg om met julle te werk.
Nou moet ek gaan en nog so 10 keer die video gaan kyk! "

Desmond and his team captured our special day through the lenses of his cameras with absolute perfection. He focused on all the small details one might have missed through all the hussle and bussle weddings turn out to be. He made sure that Christiaan and I can relive our wedding day and be apart of the festivities that took place. One thing Desmond concentrated on was the music for this video. He listened to what we wanted, spend some time on getting to know us in person and matched the music perfectly to our personalities.
I will forever treasure this video and we just want to thank you Desmond, for really creating this "Masterpiece" we call our wedding!!!!!
Dear Desmond and Vera
When going through your portfolio I was in awe of your work! Never did I imagine that my Styled Shoot video would be so AMAZING! I absolutely loved working with both of you, you are down to earth and easy to get along with which made the experience of working with you so enjoyable, relaxed and fun. You have great attention to detail which is very important to me and any client. The drone footage was unexpected and added such a nice touch to the video!. I am excited and cannot wait to work with you in the future, your work is PERFECTION!

We did not know what to expect at first but Desmond and Vera had such a lovely presence and quickly made us at ease. We quickly got used to the cameras and the rest was a breeze, it was like having fun with two best friends. We would recommend them to anyone, they are professional and also lovely people to work with and we cannot wait for them to shoot our wedding!"
