Carmel | 27 July 2013 | Weddings
Our first away-wedding was the wedding of our dear friends Olivia and Conrad. This beautiful couple decided to get married on Carmel in George. The weather would always be a factor and when we got there on Friday evening, the rain started coming down generously. On Saturday, however, the rain held back and we had a beautiful, family-fun wedding!
Olivia has been like a sister to me from the moment we met and when I started working on their wedding images, I relived every moment and quite an emotional moment or two. “Wow! my little sister got married!” She always has a smile and always has a feel-good word for everyone. You would never know when she has a bad day, because she still smiles inspite thereof. Conrad is a very fortunate man and he just makes Olivia smile broader when she sees him…or when his name is mentioned to her in his absence :)
The two of them had a very interesting start to their relationship and have been texting/emailing each other for a few months before they actually saw one another. They have vowed to each other and to God to keep their relationship pure before marriage, to the point of having their first kiss only after they said “I DO”. This may seem crazy to the norm but according to them the norm is crazy! Oh, the expression on Olivia’s face when the minister proclaimed them married was priceless! and it spoke evidence of their love for each other.
The reception was a good ol’ “kuier” with much laughter and fun, with Conrad surprising his new wife in song.
Thank you, Olivia and Conrad for sharing your beautiful day with us.
