My lovely friends Mel and Jon finally tied the knot on the 30th of June in a simple yet stirring ceremony. The bride looked stunning and the love shared between the happy couple was there for all to see. It was an absolute privilege for me to be present when the couple exchanged their vows and when the pastor delivered his beautiful sermon. Mel and Jon, I wish you all the happiness in the world and hope I will get the chance to capture many more special moments in your lives with my camera. I have never been particularly good with words so instead of writing something myself, I found this poem, which sort of captures the emotions etched on Jon's face when he saw his beautiful bride walking up the aisle. Love you guys:)
The Colour of My Love
David Foster and Arthur Janov
I'll paint a sun to warm your heart
Knowing that we'll never part.
I'll draw the years all passing by
So much to learn, so much to try.
I'll paint my mood in a shadow blue,
Paint my soul to be with you.
I'll sketch your lips in shaded tones,
Draw your mouth to my own.
I'll trace a hand to wipe your tears
And trace a look to calm your fears.
A silhouette of dark and light
To hold each other oh so tight.
I'll paint the stars in the evening sky,
Draw the light into your eyes,
A touch of love, a touch of grace,
To softly fall on your moonlit face.
And with this ring our lives will start,
Let nothing keep our love apart.
I'll take your hand to hold in mine,
And be together through all time
