30 Oct Anna & Andre / Vava’u / Kingdom of Tonga
When I think of Anna & Andre’s wonderful wedding, I think firstly of how welcoming and fun they and their families are, all the preparations for the traditional Tongan feast, travelling to Andre’s grandfathers land to take sunset photos amongst the coconut trees, the smell of the Umu, the taste of taro and Lu Pulu, the watermelon drink Otai, heavy tropical rain downpours and diving into the ocean.
Their heartwarming ceremony was held on a pier just outside the house and was only interrupted by the sea snake swimming past. I loved documenting this special wedding and of these two families becoming one, and I’m still daydreaming about going back and swimming with whales.
