Wedding in Tanzania, Africa | Vishal + Sachi : The Perfect Match
After having shot our first Africa wedding at the mysterious country Morocco in North Africa this June, now we are back here in East Africa Tanzania for a local Indian wedding experience. It was a fun-tastic three days wedding celebration for Sachi and Vishal in the city where Sachi live in, Dar Es Salaam. It was undoubtedly the best time of the year to get married in Dar; the weather was just nice, slight chilly in the morning and evening yet not too hot during the day, and Dar is certainly the great place to get hitched; the beach is beautiful and it makes just the ideal place for weddings and receptions. Just like our beautiful couple, Sachi and Vishal who have opted to have the sangeet ceremony at Hyatt Regency Dar Es Salaam, traditional Guju wedding at a local temple, and wedding reception by the beach at White Sands Resort on the last day of their wedding celebration. The bonus was we were shooting the wedding with our good friend photographer from India, Sephi Bergerson. This made the journey extra fun!
Though it was our first time shooting in Dar, we never felt like strangers there. The local Tanzanian people are generally warm and nice. And we felt the hospitable and generosity from the family all throughout the shoots. They would always come up to us and ask us to have lunch or dinner; to ensure we are well fed. Even our couple Sachi and Vishal would ensure that everything is fine at our end, and if it wasn't, they would go the extra miles to ensure we all had a comfortable and stress-free stay. It was truly stress-free and a enjoyable wedding altogether. Though it was different from the weddings that we normally shoot, it was one of our favorites. Vishal and Sachi are both mature, nice, kind-hearted and genuine people; and they are the perfect match for one another. One can see them constantly focusing on each other, ensuring that everything is going to be alright; the look fills with comfort, love, passion, and care to affirm one's comfort level without having to say a word. Above all, it was a much enjoyable Africa wedding! Would love to be back again for more Africa weddings!
On the side note: We would like to express our heartfelt thank you to several people especially Aunt Vanita and husband who has been arranging the transportations for us and ensuring everything is fine at our end, Sachi's dad for the coffees, and Sachi and Vishal family for everything.
Without much delay, let us present the Tanzania Gujarati wedding of Vishal + Sachi : The Perfect Match
