Bona Dea

The Spring air still had a crisp bite to it in the breeze that swept through the Hemel-en-Arde valley  on the day that these soul mates made their vows to each other with all of their loved ones present at the exclusive Bona Dea Estate. When we shot our engagement shoot, it was so clear to me just how excited these two were to marry each other, focusing not on the wedding, but the sparkly anticipation of sharing a life together, for ever after, learning, growing and supporting each other as well as gaining a deeper understanding of the other and their selves, and how to be the best version of that in this union. Their sheer excitement to be wed was infectious! These two are driven, idealistic, perfectionists, they love exploring and fine cuisine and wine, leading active and healthy lifestyles, but most importantly – they have a fierce loyalty to their loved ones and live with integrity and kindness, the most valuable traits in my gentle eyes. I can feel that it’s purely onwards and upwards for these two from here… Enjoy the photos of this beautiful couple and their dreamy wedding day!

"Today, let this light bless you
With these friends let it bless you
With snow-scent and lavender bless you
Let the vow of this day keep itself wildly and wholly
Spoken and silent, surprise you inside your ears
Sleeping and waking, unfold itself inside your eyes
Let its fierceness and tenderness hold you
Let its vastness be undisguised in all your days" ~ Jane Hirshfield
