Meet Matthew and Nurjehan met at work 4 years ago and it was absolutely love at first sight!
Bringing some delightful South African sunshine to brighten up your day!
Enjoy these colourful photos and read more about their love story with beautiful images from beautiful bright spark and wonderful photographer Berni Palumbo who debuts on Nu Bride today who says:
On a hot afternoon in February – yes, it was Summer in South Africa! – I got to take a walk in Downtown Cape Town with this couple. I had only exchanged a few messages with them and, once again, I was so delighted by how photography brings to me to wonderful people who somewhat share something with me. As most of my couples, Nujeran and Matthew claimed they were extremely new to this and camera shy. And like pretty much all of my couples, they soon got comfortable, they look absolutely incredible in these photos.
Over to the happy couple and gorgeous images from Berni Palumbo
How did you meet?
We are from Cape Town, South Africa. Matthew is Christian and comes from a mixed heritage background. I am Muslim of Indian and Cape Malay heritage and we met at our mutual place of work and connected at a work function 4 years ago.
What were your first impressions?
We were immediately attracted to each other from the moment we met.
When I first met Matthew, I thought he was a fun and easy going person. He made me laugh a lot on our first date.
My initial impression of Nurjehan was that she is attractive, fun and intelligent.
Favourite things about each other?
I love Matthew’s kind and generous nature, he always tries to help those in need. He is my best friend, he makes me laugh and is always there for me in my good times and not so good times.
Nurjehan is also kind and generous. When we first met, I was busy with my training (articles) to be admitted as an attorney. Her support was immense and she became a pillar of strength. She is fun and I enjoy holidaying with her.
Things you both love?
We love being adventurous.
We enjoy hiking, trying new restaurants, walks on the beach, long scenic drives and watching movies together
