BRETT + REBECCA

They have a quiet love and respect for one another. It's so evident that they adore each other just by seeing the way they look at one another and the way that he cares for her in the most nurturing and honest way. Their union was one I won't forget - and it was a blast on top of it all!  A huge thank you to Laura of Laura and Co Events for introducing me to these two and to Rebecca and Brett for introducing me to the Henna ceremony! It was amazing - a host of dancing, colours and music - see the bottom images for more on this amazing cultural tradition!

OZLEM + HOOMAN

When I met these two, I knew right off the bat that family and tradition was very important to them. They understood that weddings aren't just a day in the sun for bride and groom, but a life changing, family transforming moment that goes beyond wedding rings and living together. You are joining 2 cultures, 2 families, 2 sets of ideals and belief systems and creating a new family bond that extends both of your families into a mass clan of people who all love you, adore you and have your back for the rest of your lives together. That's pretty epic and momentous! We smiled ear to ear the whole day through watching these 2 families express their cultures and beliefs, embrace another culture and make wonderful memories all together.  That's what weddings are - an intense love that spreads from 2 people and encompasses everyone in the room. People love, love and being at a wedding feeds you with it all day. It's the reason we do what we do - who wouldn't want to be a part of something so epic pretty much every weekend?!
