This morning, one of my 6 year olds hunted through our cupboards looking for chocolate that he wrapped in a bow & hand delivered to the 11 year old neighbourhood girl who has captured his heart. He drew her a card with lopsided love hearts and wrote “Dear Sharlit (her name is Charlotte), be my balantin“. I think he meant valentine.
It was such an honest display of his feelings, it inspired me to share a little love today. I picked it to share with you because even though it isn’t a Valentine’s Day wedding, it has a little of all that should be shared on this day. A romantic venue, a little champagne, a warm fireplace, some good food, a warm sunset & a killer view… and lots of love & laughter. Oh, & a cow.
This is the wedding of Kim & Karl at Spicers Peak Lodge. A really fantastic venue. Photographed by Mr Adam Finch. Just gorgeous.
A wedding is one of the few times in our life where we lay our feelings bare, in front of others. As a couple you are somehow exposed, embraced and protected, all at the same time. That’s what marriage is all about – opening yourself to someone else and trusting them to protect that. What a perfect day to remember this. What a perfect set of wedding images to remind us. Thanks Mr Finch.
Kim & Karl, enjoy your first Valentine’s Day as husband & wife, and we wish you a marriage filled with romantic moments.
