1st & foremost allow me to honour the Lord our God with this post, He has been more than faithful in Faith & I’s lives, and we take this time to say that without HIM we amount to absolutely no good whatsoever.
Oh this was definitely one of our favorite weddings this year, the wonderful union of Mimie & Charles. Both of them happen to live & work in London, so it was a real joy shooting their cross-cultural wedding. Mimie is Kenyan while Charles is Zambian. Mimie contacted me via email as a result of looking at the work on the blog and she shared with me her idea of how she wanted her wedding to be. Faith & I met Charles & Mimie a few days before their wedding and we hit it off and loved them from our 1st meeting. Their wedding was a beautiful, beautiful celebration of love & culture…check out the story of this glorious day…
