Cavalli Estate Wedding Video / Clynn & Shihaam
How did you guys meet?
We met at nursery school. We were not friends, but Clynn use to call me his girlfriend from time to time.
Why did you want us to capture your wedding day? How do you think you’ll feel watching everything back in years to come?
Photos will capture special moments however, having a wedding video captures the emotions such as love, laughter and joy of the day. Having a video provides us with the opportunity to share our moment with our kids one day.
Tell me about the proposal – I love hearing these stories.
We got engaged on my birthday at Kagga Karma Game Reserve in the Cederberg mountains. Clynn planned a glamping experience under the stars but first asked our game driver to take a few photos of us at sunset.
The photographer showed me some of the pictures he had taken and when I turned around to my amazement, Clynn was on one knee asking, “You have spent the entire day in the car with me, would you mind spending the rest of your life with me?”
When you’re not in full wedding mode, what do you guys do for a living? What makes you tick? How do spend your free time? What’s your ideal day?
Clynn is the head engineering at Continental Tyres and I am a SAP S4 HANA FICO consultant at Accenture. Most of our free time is spent together, outdoors with our two border collies – Zac and Zoe or wining and dining.
Holidays is definitely something that makes us tick! From planning to packing, it’s definitely something we enjoy doing.
Why did you choose the wedding venue? What was special about it when you saw it for the first time?
The smell of the fynbos when entering the estate and the beautiful views are definitely the reasons, we chose Cavalli.`
Tell me about the vision you had for your wedding, and if the experience you both had met or exceeded your expectations.
We envisioned our day as one that was simple, modern and elegant. There were many challenges leading to and on our day, but we have each other, which is the most important component of any wedding.
Where do you see yourselves in 10 years time?
We definitely see ourselves exploring a different country as our new home. We want a life of peace, love, joy and success in which ever form it may come 🙂
