We met Abi a while before their wedding while we working on another photography project with her. After the project we were so comfortable with each other and she felt more like a friend than a client, that it only felt natural that we would capture her and Dyl’s beautiful wedding.
We see a lot of in love couples but the type of love between Abi and Dyl really is something special. I asked Abi to write me a short story of how they met, fell in love etc. This is what she sent me:
Take every cliché and Facebook note about what real love is and what finding the right person is and throw it out the window… Reality is awesome! And living in that reality with someone that gets that it isn’t all fun n games is what makes it work… So they say, you won’t find your soulmate or ‘marriage material’ in a bar or a club, sorry folks but we proved you wrong!
On April 17th 2010 me and Dyl met in a very unconventional way at Numbers, a meeting still laughed about to this day… He invited me over a few days later, and I haven’t left since… Life threw all it could, but with every challenge we stuck together and grew stronger.. We found the concrete that holds our bond so tightly together along the spiritual path we began walking together. Our faith has been such an incredible element of growth in our lives and is THE reason for where we are today.
And with our faith and ever growing love come the most incredible light in the form of little candles laid out on the beach by Dyl to ask me to marry him:) 6months later we said our I do’s in front our Lord and our loved ones and began our lives as Mr and Mrs:) And in our true fashion the love kept growing and now we have a blessing on the way to share and grow that love with even more<3
Once again Hogsback gave us rain and once again we were not fazed. It was a beautiful day filled with so much emotion – tears, happiness and laughter.
This beautiful couple recently found out that they are expecting their first born and we are really so excited with them. Abi and Dyl, with your kind of special love and your foundations at the right place, we just know that God has blessed your union. We wish you all the best for the future and know that you are going to be awesome parents.
We would also like to thank Ruan Niemann for second shooting for us. It was great to have you there.
