Desiree and Simon… What an amazing couple!! When I arrived in Mozambique to cover their wedding I was welcomed with open arms by them, their family and all their friends. I immediately felt part of the wedding party. On the morning of the wedding I met Simon and his daughter on the beach and spent some time with them taking some pictures as they played in the waves and wrote in the sand. It was the first time I was away from my wife and daughter covering a wedding, watching them spend time together got me thinking of them. This was one of the most relaxed weddings I have covered, the scenery along the coast and the beauty of Mozambique was a welcome break from the busy city life in Johannesburg.
Desiree and Simon put the whole wedding together themselves and drove all their decor in from Johannesburg. I so loved every moment of capturing their wedding and their enthusiasm not to let any of challenges that they were met with on the day get them down. They were determined to have a beautiful and fun time and they did. The ceremony and reception were held on the beach, it was a rather windy ceremony but the late sunset created some of the most amazing light.
I really enjoyed spending time with this amazing couple and their family and wish Simon & Des many wonderful and happy years together.
