I shot my last wedding of the year yesterday, so I have a few weeks off now to relax and unwind with my family.
Before I do that though, I have one ceremony that I've wanted to post here for a long time, but finding the additional time, in between editing and launching my new website, just did not happen.
Let me introduce Christine and Richard, my first green wedding! Christine's and Richard's green-themed wedding was eco-friendly, whereby the couple tries to decrease the impact of their event on the planet.
Christine's décor consisted of plants and vegetables that were then donated to less privileged schools and organisations after the wedding. The handmade African art not only supported local craftsmen, but also made for great gifts for the couple's guests. Every single detail was well thought out.
Christine and Richard, thank you so much for picking me to capture your wedding day, it was such a pleasure to be a part of this very special and unique occasion.
