Kaisa and David chose to get ready together at their Tumbling Waters Retreat Wedding. The sun shone bright as I captured their portraits together before the ceremony started. The clear blue sky with stunning view over the escarpment was perfect for their photos! Kaisa and David were so happy during this time, ‘dancing’ around like teenagers in love!
Before the wedding Kaisa and David broke their own ‘rules.’ Firstly they met at work when David had said, “I’m never getting involved with anyone I work with.” Secondly, marriage was not really thought about. “We initially weren’t planning to get married. David received an offer for a posting in Hamburg, Germany. Because we thought Germany didn’t recognise de facto, we thought we needed to get married. This wasn’t the case, but we liked the idea of getting married so much we decided to do it anyway!”
With 30 close friends and family Kaisa and David said ‘I do’ at their Tumbling Waters Retreat Wedding in November. Throughout the day, traditional and non-traditional elements featured.
Kaisa’s background is Polish. Their parents performed a special blessing before the ceremony. Although they weren’t sure what they needed to say, it became a very emotional time. I noticed lots of glassy red eyes and happy smiles. Before Kaisa and David entered the reception room another polish tradition was performed with bread, salt and vodka.
Living in Germany is their next adventure now that the wedding is over!
