Adéle and Hennie Elopement, Shark Bay

November 17, 2015

Even though weddings share the age old theme of love, they come along in very different shapes and sizes. The intricate details of a couple’s life, is what makes their love story unique and wonderful to capture.

On an awesome West Coast morning, I found myself on a beautiful secluded beach. I was in the very privileged position to photograph the elopement of Hennie and Adéle. Being only one of six people, spoke to me about the endless boundaries so fitting of love. Two people found each other. Their life stories are immensely different, but on that little beach in a glorious golden sunrise, they decided to intertwine their paths.
Hennie, dressed in casual shorts, walked bare foot with me down to the beach. Like the gentleman he is, he helped to prepare for his eternal promise: He helped to setup the back drop and hung the flower vases. Patiently we waited for his bride…
And she came… Yes, love gives hope. Hope that is not disappointed. Adéle arrived in a elegant, beautiful lace dress. Her eyes sparkled at the sight of her husband to be. She was happy to see him. And he gleamed from ear to ear…
During an emotional and short ceremony, even the pastor shed a tear. His words floated on the morning breeze and drifted over the calm lagoon waves. A new love was announced to the world. A new, eternal love…
Hennie and Adéle, thank you again for allowing me the fortune of experiencing your beautiful day. I’ll always remember it!
