Bound by the same set out values and beliefs, they found each other and the foundation of their relationship at Church.
As they both attended church service together they felt themselves grow closer until eventually they “they are no longer two but one flesh” and were ready to commit themselves to each other. “Therefore what God has joined together, let no man separate." Matthew 19:6
The couple had their heart set on a destination wedding in the heart of Nicaragua, Central America. Going back to Aric’s family home town to enter into wedlock with his parents blessings seemed the only way for this values driven couple.
Organised is an understatement for this bride. Within one week of the proposal, Nat’s had planned a full weeks itinerary for their desired guests. We were fortunate enough to be asked to capture their big day, what an absolute privilege! And there the adventure began.. Jet Set Go…
We stayed at the family guest house on their coffee farm where Aric showed us how to pick coffee beans, farm life and the local turkey manning the gardens. It has to be said they are a lot scarier up close than you would imagine.
The meticulously planned itinerary involved a true experience and exploration involving BBQs, horse riding, a trip to the lagoon, shopping in the local bazar and of course a mani pedi before the wedding.
As the day drew closer, we switched locations from the family farm to a sea front beach house, a stunning view with a calm ambience – the perfect combination for this destination wedding. Surrounded by loving friends and family, everyone was assigned a task as per the spreadsheet, they pulled together to prepare for Nats & Aric’s special day.
Finally the day was here, blue skies, a cool breeze and more beautiful than anyone ever could have imagined.
A picture perfect start to married life! Thank you to a truly thoughtful and kind couple for memories that will stay with us for a lifetime. Wishing you both every happiness together, hope you’re blessed with and surrounded by as much love and kindness as you radiate out….
