Today I give you my hand and my heart.
I promise to encourage and inspire you, to laugh with you, and to comfort you in times of sorrow and struggle.
I promise to love you in good times and in bad, when life seems easy and when it seems hard, when our love is simple, and when it is an effort.
I promise to cherish you and to always hold you in the highest regard.
These things I give to you today and every day, a commitment made in love, kept in faith, and eternally made new.
These are wedding vows I thought is very fitting to today’s blog post of this beautiful wedding I got to capture on 11th June 2021 at Cradle Valley Lodge. Because … in good times and bad times… and man.. what a year it’s been with COVID-19 on our doorstep since last year!
we had laughter
we had blessings
This wedding was super special, as the wedding day date also had super significance to the couple.
Soo many special moments… too much to mention, but these stood out to me,
Their little ring bearer in his Spiderman suit – too cute!
The breaking of a glass during their ceremony – a piece of tradition!
The Groom washing the Bride’s feet after their ceremony – this had me in tears!
And the Bride seeing her sister on a live feed all the way over in Ireland who couldn’t attend the wedding – I don’t know who cried more!
The venue was one of the best venues I’ve worked at, and the staff, food and setting is just gorgeous!
But enough talk… let me share some favorite images from the day with you!
