Cape Town and surrounds in recent years have become one of the leading wedding destinations in the world. Not only does Cape Town boast with an amazing portfolio of venues, but it also has some of the most talented suppliers and coordinators – an industry at the cutting edge of trends.
But now, it seems, there is a new growth point in the South African wedding market – Durban. Durban offers a lot of the same attributes as Cape Town – the beaches & charm of the coast and the rolling hills and game reserves of the Midlands, to name a few. This area also has the added benefit of good weather almost all year round!

Sharanya & Rashab’s Hindu wedding at Collisheen Estate was one of two Indian weddings I did back to back in Durban in July. Preparation photos and couple shoot was done at the amazing Zimbali Resort in Ballito. The ceremony and reception were held at Collisheen estate, just a few kilometres up the road. The team at Collisheen have in-house wedding coordinators who can help you plan your wedding. They also offer decor options.
Indian wedding ceremonies are known for their vibrant colours and extravagant decorations. All the religious traditions of these weddings are amazing to behold. With Durban being coined the Indian culture capital in South Africa, it is no surprise that lots of Hindu weddings take place there.
After the wedding procedures, we went to the Durban beach-side to take some couple photos. The newlyweds looked so stunning in their traditional wedding attire with the sand and waves in the background.
