Did you know that the most sincerest of hugs and goodbyes are found at airports? It is no wonder then, that love can blossom from an airport lounge and grow into a fairy-tale of happily ever after. There is even a host of movies that depict this; so much so that CNN ran an article called “Love on the run: Airport movie moments

Welcome to a new blog post of an epic wedding. Before you go  blaming my math teacher for me stating that 254 + 32 = 1234, please enjoy the wonderful images first then I will explain my calculations later :D.

Anne is from Kenya, and Philippe is from Belgium.I will not go into the details of how these two lovebirds met but I can tell you that an airport was involved and that they were pre-destined to be together forever.

This was my seventh wedding of 2014 and since I am a Posse 116, I considered it very special to me. I had a lot of fun shooting it – from Friday evening to Sunday evening. The couple was awesome and gave me acres of space and time to shoot to the depths of my creativity. By the end of this wedding, I had made friends, loads of them, and got acquainted to the Belgian culture which is really rich. I can only thank God and give Him all glory due unto His name for his unending favor.

Enjoy the lovely moments that I managed to capture 🙂

And with that applause from the bride and groom, the ceremony came to a close and it was time to party, eat, drink and let loose. Stalk the blog for those splendid scenes in the coming week.

To Anne and Philippe, I wish you the very best in your marriage; may God be the center of your lives and may He reward you with blessings overflowing each and every day. 

Please leave your comments below; it encourages me to blog often when you do so :D. Catch you soon.

Oh wait; 254 is Kenya’s country code and 32 corresponds to Belgium’s. You add them up and you get 1 thing 2 say, 3 words 4 you – (I Love You).
