WEDDING | LANSDOWNE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH | FOUR CORNERS | MASTERTON CLUB
The day started grey. It ended golden.
It was a fine day to celebrate a wedding and a perfect day to celebrate love.
The kind of perfect that Israel and Lina deserve.
It was on the 5th of March 2012 when we first received an e-mail from them. Since then, their names were in our mailbox almost every week. What started as a mere enquiry became stories about life, its highs and lows and almost anything under the sun. It felt like attached to every e-mail they sent was a piece of themselves that we have learned to be fond of, appreciate and sincerely, love. On the way to their wedding, we didn’t feel like we were covering one. It felt more like we were actually attending one — that of our friends’ and you don’t get to feel something like that every day. So, the day started for us on such a happy note.
Their wedding was everything we imagined and more. We knew that everything would reflect them as a couple. Nothing extravagant. Everything honest. We knew it would be beautiful and in sooooooo many ways, meaningful.
The day started in the bride’s homestead which is over a 100 years old. Oh! How we loved that home, its atmosphere, its size and its soul. Our bride chose to DIY as much as she can to save costs and keep the wedding true to who they are. I loved the doilies, kraft papers and twines that adorned the place and with much pride, I have to say, that her bouquet, she made herself.
Here’s a glimpse of the very special day of our Mexican groom and our Dutch bride.
