Happy Sunday, Maharanis! Today I have a Sweetheart Sunday love story all the way from South Africa. Maharani Bhavani and Akaash met in high school and soon became high school sweethearts. But as with all fairy tales, the couple must survive some kind of obstacle...which they did! A four year separation in different cities led to a reunion in Johannesburg that proved they were more in love than ever. (Aww.)
I am so pleased to present to you this gorgeous Indian engagement shoot from Designer Photo. Celebrating their love for the beach and for each other, Maharani Bhavani and Akaash look absolutely great in these seaside photos. I love how our bride's dress matches the scenic location of Umhlanga Beach in Durban, South Africa -- what a breath of fresh air!
