Lindsay & Mick {Vow Renewal}

Mick and Lindsay aren’t new to the blog. I had the pleasure of capturing their family when I went to Tauranga last August. You might remember a very adorable smile from under a very big firemans hat.

This time, I was lucky enough to be invited to capture a truly special celebration. A vow renewal marking 10 years of marriage.
A lot can happen in 10 years. Heck a lot happened in just the one year. I told the story in their family shoot of Lindsay facing the horrible C word. When we had that shoot, she wasn’t in the clear. But now she IS! HOORAY!!!
So although this celebration isn’t about that horrible ordeal and more about a lasting relationship that can only get stronger… looking cancer in the eyes is something that makes you rethink your life, the people in it and makes you thank the lords for every day you have with your kids, your family and your friends.

Down at beautiful Anzac Bay not far from Kati Kati. The lolly table caught the kids eyes. Mick and Lindsay’s original wedding vows along with some other fun and creative stuff accompanied the lollies.

Waitangi Day 2012 was a good day. The ceremony started around 10.30am. They had the same celebrant from 10 years ago. How cool!
