When you travel half way across the world to shoot a wedding, even though you’re expectant for great things,
sometimes the grand spectacle of reality shatters any preconceptions and absolutely blows your mind!
…This wedding was one of those.
There was such a sure and exuberant vibe of electricity, suspense, excitement, laughter, music and glamour all wrapped tight in loves secure blanket of marriage, that surrounded this one special day, and we were just so honoured to have had the opportunity to capture it.
We can only hope that the pictures do it justice.

For diner, we had Nikki’s mom cook a simple meal for our parents/brothers/sisters/grandparents, nothing too fancy but couldn’t be better for us. she’s a great cook!
