Lisa and I arrived in the Midlands, the day before the wedding to meet Nico and Shelly who we had only met over skype as they had travelled from New Zealand to get married in sunny South Africa with their family and friends. Even though the sun decided to rest on the day of the wedding and sent the mist, it made for some breathtaking shots. Such an amazing wedding to capture. How I enjoyed the story of how these two had met and played together as children, and after many years, distance and air miles decided to be together as ordained by God. It is love story from which a movie could be made. It is so difficult to put into a short blog the story of this couple, I think it can only best be told through the poem Shelly wrote for their wedding day that was put on display for the guests to read. I have included that poem in this blog. Nico and Shelly thank you for honouring the Lord on your wedding day, may He remain the foundation in your union as husband and wife. Our prayer for you is that you will continue to grow in the knowledge of the gospel and that your marriage will be a reflection of the union of Christ and his church. We will be praying for you in this new and exciting chapter in your lives.
