Joburg often gets a bit of a bad rap for being Cape Town’s ugly sister and when it comes to having a wedding in Joburg most brides opt to head out to places like the Magaliesburg or Hartbeespoort. We’re quite sure for most Joburgers the idea of getting married in the CBD or anywhere but Summer Place, The Saxon or Morrells Boutique Estate is out of the question but award-winning photographer, Christiaan David proves to us all wrong with these incredible images of weddings in the Joburg CBD, at Wits University and beyond! Check out his breathtaking images below to see how he captured the magic of this urban space.
