Destination Wedding Photographer – Joe and Melissa in Fiji
Even as a destination wedding photographer it’s not every day that you get asked to travel abroad to be a part of someones special day, let alone be given the honour of documenting the whole thing from start to finish.
Melissa and Joe fell in love with my work and so they just had to have me, even if it was in Fiji! Jane and I brought our little Louis along with us at the age of one point five and had a little much needed little family holiday too. Ah the sun.
Our first trip to Fiji, such a beautiful part of the world just on our doorstep. The food is amazing, sun all the time and the people are so lovely and genuine you just want to hug them all….if they don’t hug you first.
The big day sure was one beautiful roller coaster ride, what a great experience. There were tears, and laughter and as usual lots of kissing, and yes there were also lots a coconuts…oh and the sunset that we tracked down with a bit of a walk!
The party didn’t stop until way after I was in bed, I could hear half of the resort singing into the morning.
What a day.
I hope this does it all justice.
Thankyou Joe and Mel, you are blessed, as are we to have been a part of your special day.
Some awesome vendors Joe and Mel wish to thank, both local and abroad.
