I posted Nica and Selwyn’s fun engagement session a while ago – have a look here…
The same spirit that impressed me at their engagement shoot, absolutely shone through on their wedding day too. Just 10 minutes before the ceremony was supposed to start a huge storm hit out of nowhere and dashed the couple’s hopes of getting married under a gorgeous tree on the hill at the lodge. But they soldiered on and the ceremony was quickly and deftly moved into the reception tent, and neither of them batted an eyelash. With the same big radiant smile she sported the whole day, Nica floated down the isle looking absolutely stunning, and Selwyn looked like he just won the jackpot!
I don’t think there was a dry eye in the house as both fathers gave messages to the couple and then they read their own vows…except Nica surprised Selwyn with a beautiful song that she had recorded (I think we need to watch out for this songbird!). It was magical!
The storm cleared and blessed their day with a golden sunset unmatched in its beauty – we had so much fun taking photos…I didn’t even want to go back!! What followed was an amazing party to celebrate an amazing couple.
I am so happy to have shared your joyful day Nica and Selwyn – I know that same spirit will carry you through your lives together…may you bathe in golden light always!!
