Persia White & Joseph Morgan . A Wedding at the Ian Fleming Villa in Oracabessa, Jamaica

Last year in July, I had the pleasure of photographing Persia & Joseph's wedding at the Fleming Villa in Oracabessa, Jamaica. This villa is one of the most beautiful on the island with it's appealing buildings of white stone and magnificent ocean views. It was built by author Ian Fleming in the 1940's and is where, throughout his life, he wrote many of his James Bond stories. The simplicity of the location combined with the superb weather created a perfect ambience for their wedding day.

The preparations started in late afternoon as the day was cooling down. Persia got herself ready surrounded by close family. Seemingly effortless, she kept everything simple, even doing her own make-up and hair.

The ceremony took place at sunset, with the light slowly descending into the sea. The couple was silhouetted by a magnificent arch of driftwood intertwined with vines and pastel roses. Persia was incredibly beautiful in her dress and her walk down the aisle was unforgettable to all present. Their love and happiness was in the air and on the face of every guest.

After the ceremony, it was time for pictures of the newlyweds by the sea, with wonderful rose coloured rays of twilight illuminating them. Then came their first dance set to the romantic lyrics of 'Never Let Me Go' by Florence + the Machine. Humorous and affectionate speeches were offered to the couple for the occasion. This was followed by an excellent dinner on the front lawn under the ancient mango trees lit by the stars above. The party continued with the lively Jamaican band of drummers called 'Children of the Drums' who got all the guests up on to the dance floor.

Persia & Joseph's wedding was perfect, intimate and fun. Their love and care for each other so obviously shone through that day. Persia was so generous and Joseph so in love with her. I am so happy I had the chance to be a part of their wedding. I wish them both many years of love and happiness.

This wedding was featured on and in People Magazine.

Natalia & Fábio . A Montreal Wedding at The Forest and Stream Club

I had the pleasure of being a part of Natalia & Fábio's wedding last summer in Montreal at The Forest and Stream Club. It was simple, romantic and intimate. Their families all came from Colombia, Brazil and North America for the ceremony which was in three languages. The bride wrote her own calligraphy, made her own flower arrangements and even did her own make-up. It was a beautiful wedding filled with laughter, tears and joy.
