This weekend I had the amazing opportunity of capturing Melanie and Andres wedding. When I first met Mel for coffee – I knew that this was a special lady, we got on really well and I couldn’t wait to shoot their wedding which I knew would be as fun, loving and wonderful as the couple are.
Melanie and Andre have been dating for many years, however 3 years ago Melanie was involved in a terrible car accident. With lots of hard work, prayers and support from her loved ones she made a miraculous recovery. In light of this, the couple started supporting the Association for the Physically Disabled. Their wedding favours were pins from this charity, to help create awareness and support. An amazing and meaningful gift.
Both the ceremony and the reception had wonderful live bands playing music – a real treat to listen to at the Grace Point Church in Glenferness and the Randpark Country Club.
Melanie was one of the calmest brides I have ever worked with – but as her bridesmaid said “there is nothing to stress about when you know you are marrying the right man”. The love, mutual respect and adoration for each other that this couple share shone through on their special day.
Thank you so much to Melanie and Andre for allowing us to be apart of the wonderful day that symbolised the start of your marriage.
