A husband and wife who run a videography business were shot on Sunday in KwaZulu-Natal, while they were at a client's house to film a wedding.

Three occupants were in a car that approached, then opened fire on the couple, said Netcare 911.

Its paramedics were alerted at 12.20pm to the shooting at Berkshire Downs, New Germany.

"The husband, who is believed to be in his 50s, sustained moderate injuries when he was shot in his right arm," Netcare spokesperson Shawn Herbst said.

"The wife, also in her 50s, sustained serious injuries when she was shot in the abdomen while both of them were sitting in their car."

The wife was airlifted to hospital in a critical condition. 

Her husband was transported by ambulance to hospital for treatment.
