First & foremost…I would love to thank God & give Him glory for all His love, protection, care & favour on Faith & me…truly we would amount to absolutely nothing without Him and even though we keep on falling and failing, He never gives up on us…glory be to the most high.
ION, finally Dot & David got married…there’s is just so much to say about these two…that only blogging every day for a week 🙂 will be sufficient to tell this beautiful story of love & care. David is a fellow photographer based in London & I had seen his awesome photography work when I was just beginning my career, never would I have dreamt that we would ever shoot his wedding :). On the other hand, his best half; Dot works in Doha…thus it was my ideal set up for a crazy wedding…we talked at long lengths prior to their wedding and came up with a detailed wedding timeline way in advance…I realised that D+D (As I fondly love referring to them) were very keen with the details and no small detail was left out.
We finally met in person, a few days to the wedding and I absolutely loved them both…they had lots of life and love and I knew we were geared up for an amazing wedding…The wedding was absolutely fun, we laughed, danced, had fun and shot & shot…Thank you D+D for being such great sports and letting Faith & me tell this beautiful story of your wedding day…brace yourself for my longest post to date 🙂

So Dot had to prove her culinary skills before all of us…under David’s keen watchful eye 🙂
Seems she passed the test 🙂
And they lived happily ever after LOL!!!
And they toasted to a great great life ahead
After the ceremony was done, we drove down to some coffee driveway and took some funky sunset portraits
They finally got their fairy tale story…so lovely
And they were lost in the coffee bushes…
Oh how lovely this is
Hahahaha and it was time to go back to their roots, started from the bottom indeed 🙂
And D+D managed to make the old Subaru look good 🙂
We headed back to the Bedelle for some lack look portraits, and Evelyne (in purple) joined us too…she had been an amazing host to us for the day
And as the sun was finally setting, we did some intimate portraits
We got back indoors for some more fun, D+D worked it hard, despite all the fatigue
Loved this staircase shot much
This was David’s bright idea
Isn’t this place just heavenly!!!
Finally we decided to take a dip in the pool…just to cool the soaring romantic temperatures 🙂
Oh yes it was cooooollllldddd 🙂
Oh how lovely this was
Faith suggested we add the turtles into the frame…just to add the whole beach, Coastal theme
One final portrait of the 4 of us, thank you Ken for taking this amazing shot….one of the most fun I have had shooting a wedding…life should be make more of Davids & Dots 🙂
We love you so much & we know that our good Lord will bless your marriage and am sure He will bless you with many, many babies as wonderful as you guys 🙂
