Loveleen & Josh {Married} Part 1

‘Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.’ – Corinthians 13

That is a very common passage reading within a ceremony. But why wouldn’t you choose it? It states all that true love stands for. The words behind an everlasting relationship… a long & healthy marriage.

These words could not be truer if they were written for Loveleen & Josh themselves. Two humble people with incredibly kind and giving hearts. Two people who’s wedding day is finally here.

Some agonize over dress choices. Not Loveleen. Her sister saw this dress in a shop window in Auckland, called Loveleen and that was that. Mind made up! And isn’t it beautifully elegant like the bride herself.

As soon as I saw this photo when selecting images for the blog. I loved it straight away. Doug shot it through the church windows and he blurred the criss cross framing across the window enough that it has a wavy affect. It reminds me of Monet. I love it.

As if any wedding doesn’t have its little mishaps. …Today’s?! … The bride is here but a bus full of guests are not. Seems they are on their way out to the reception venue by accident instead. Whoops.

Abraham whispered so gently as he handed over his daughters hand to Josh. ‘Take care of her’.

Never have I been in a ceremony before where a box of chocolates are whipped out and tossed around the church. But only as The Vicar tells the story of Chocolate being the  standard of economic value, or “money,” for the Mayans, who used it for virtually all social and ritual occasions so it became one of the most fashionable and valued commodities. Tradition saw a bride and groom in a ceremony drinking a cup of rich chocolate. …Now I LIKE the sound of that! … But The Favourites was the next best thing. :)
