A Ballroom Wedding | Beatrice & Carsten | The Safari Park Hotel & Casino

The past few weeks have been some of the hardest Faith & I had to go through. A lot of things went very wrong and many things that we were really trusting God for, failed to happen. Choosing to ignore our hurt, pain and tears and trusting God, has been the hardest. Knowing that God is working even when we do not feel Him or hear him, and trusting that He knows what He is doing with our lives, we are slowly learning to do. Above all, we are learning to dance even before the song is played, believing even where all hope is lost and most of all learning to trust that God will fulfil all His promises to those who wait on Him.

‘But he knows the way that I take; when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold.’ {Job 23:10}

Do you remember Beatrice & Carsten from their engagement shoot? You can view it here. Well the weekend following the shoot, they finally got their Kenyan wedding at the Consolata Shrine in Westlands and a ballroom reception and evening party at the Bougainville Ballroom at the 5 star Safari Park Hotel and Casino. It was such a beautiful and glamorous wedding with a lot of Danish customs and traditions that coloured the wedding to make it one in its own. It was their second wedding after holding their 1st in Denmark a while back. Here are some of my favourites from the day.

We had some of the best hair and make-up duo in the land: Koby (Make-up) & Kim (Hair) hit me up if in need of their contacts

The lovely Kate – Sister to the bride – you may remember her from the Barclays ad..she also is a Sarakasi dancer

Beatrice after the make-over 🙂

Yep…a wedding ain’t a wedding till the range run through 🙂

The Consolata shrine, Westlands.

I love capturing the fine details…here are some snippets from the ballroom

Below are some images from the portrait session it was really raining outdoors so we moved the shoot to the lobby of the hotel, and we thank God for the outcome…

Simply Beautiful…
Finally we got to the reception and the dancing was fever-peak ‘Wawiri Kwa Wawiri!’

The high table was an array of colours and delicacies

The groom’s toast to the bride was a very teary affair

We had some real serious ‘Erroh’ entertainment in the house

LOL! wonder how that wine tasted like 🙂

The Danes have this interesting tradition of the grooms men cutting off the groom’s tip of both socks…interesting huh?

And my most favourite, the groom has to take off the ‘something-blue’ lace loop from the brides thigh with his mouth and then tosses it to the single men in the building…this I must do at mine 🙂

Thanks 4 dropping by : Lastly, today (09/09/90) is my fiancée Faith’s birthday. I would love to celebrate, my best friend, business partner, my ever patient assistant to all those client meetings and shoots 🙂 Thank you my angel for being the best thing that has ever happened to me, I thank God that He made you perfectly for me…can’t wait to share our lives together…

Be Blessed Friends…
