Drum roll please! Introducing.. my husband.. yes I’m officially now Mrs vdB! 🙂
As our family and friends are spread around the world, Mark and I escaped with a few of them to a place that holds some of my earliest memories of international travel (not my own experiences, but those of my parents travelling when I was still in junior school and I can remember them returning with tales of wonderful adventures and experiences outside of South Africa.. perhaps it’s where my lust for travel was conceived!) And so Mark and I combined our passion for exciting and gorgeous international destinations and thought it appropriate to tie the knot on the beach at La Pirogue. It really was an amazing couple of weeks.. Our wedding day was truly special and yes I’d heard it a hundred times or more and even said it to a few of my own brides over the years, but time on the day just really seemed to fly by in the blink of an eye! Before we knew it we were dancing barefoot on the beach under African skies..
If you ever get the chance, stay at this wonderful resort, nothing is too much trouble, you’ll be treated like royalty.. and everyone will remember you for years to come!
Here’s one of our favourite images from our creative shoot taken by the talented David and Christine Weeks.
Please feel free to get in contact if you have any questions about destination weddings or are planning to get married in Mauritius (particularly at La Pirogue or its sister resort, Sugar Beach). We’d be delighted to help with advice. And of course, we’d love to photograph your wedding where ever it may be held around the globe!
Our next international wedding will be at Tala Game Reserve, near Durban in South Africa in April 2010. I’m so excited, and I just can’t wait! Please get in touch if you’d like to us to photograph your wedding, engagement portraits or have some fun with a creative shoot on the beach or a location of your choice. See you in SA soon!
