Sanusha and Patrick wed on South African shores

On a scorching hot March afternoon, Sanusha Naiker and Patrick Holley said "I do" in the bride's home country, South Africa.

The bride and groom met in 2007 when Sanusha was working in the UK, four years later Patrick proposed, and this year the couple married at Breakers Resort, Umhlanga in KwaZulu Natal on South Africa's East Coast.




Patrick was stunned when he saw his wife-to-be walking down the aisle. But to add to his awe, Sanusha had surprised him with her choice of dress.

Having told husband-to-be in the run-up to the wedding that she would be wearing a burgundy sari, he was astounded when she was dressed in traditional white.

The bride's dress incorporated a flash of burgundy detailing in the train – combining the two cultures that their union represented. Her groom looked dashing in a tailsuit and complemented his bride by wearing a burgundy waistcoat and tie.

Groom Patrick was further staggered when his now wife changed into her intricately detailed burgundy sari for the reception.

The newly-weds made the most of the dramatic backdrop of the Indian Ocean and neighbouring Hawaan Forest to have their photos taken.

It was the "most fun wedding" they'd ever been to, adding, "to us it was perfect!"
