Oh to our good, good Lord be all the glory, honour & praise for the gift of a precious new year. There is no greater gift than what God has granted us, and that is life, to love, live and make a difference of our short experience here on earth. Its a new year and am so glad we all made it to another year to share in the love & goodness of our precious Lord & Saviour Jesus Christ. Friends, may we live louder and bolder for Christ this year….may we be the salt in a tasteless world, the light in a darkening world…may we rise & show forth the goodness of the LORD in this land of the living!!!
Today, I chose to start off the year with the second part of Juliet & Sammy’s white wedding. In case you missed part I you can check it out here. It has been our craziest & most busiest December ever, at some point I thought we would lose our mind as a result of all the weddings, but we thank God that Faith, I and the team made it out alive, all to the glory of the most HIGH. Over the next few weeks we will, if our good Lord wills, share with you some of the most amazing weddings we have ever seen and we sincerely thank all our wonderful bride & grooms for letting Faith & me into your lives & letting us share your precious story.

And the curtain fell to one of the most fun, intimate & special weddings we have ever covered. If only I was able to capture how lovely of personalities Juliet & Sammy are, I would. They are the most loveliest & sweetest people on earth & it was such a privilege for Ken, Matt and me to cover this beautiful wedding…Faith was sitting her final exams then, so she was not able to cover it with us…
Thank you Juliet & Sammy for letting us tell this lovely story of yours….we pray for the goodness of the Lord to guide and lead you in all His wonderful grace…that all your endeavours may be blessed and crowned with success….
Thank you guys for dropping by, may the Lord of glory meet your needs and ear has not heard, eye has not seen, nor has it entered into your mind the things that God has planned for you, this year of our Lord 2014….
Loads of love & hugs,
Faith & Ben
