"What light is to the eyes, love is to the heart."

From the moment I received an email from Nicole I couldn’t get India off my mind and after a number of emails back and forth, Dirk and I had our plans set to venture from New Zealand over to India the day after Christmas to be apart of Jordan and Nicole’s wedding. Now before I went I knew it was going to be good, but I never expected this – I don’t think anyone ever could. India took my breath away; the culture, the people, the food and architecture … the list goes on.

After spending a few days in Delhi recovering from jet-lag and doing some sight seeing we ventured up to Rajasthan region and in particular Jaisalmer where the wedding festivities were taking place. This wasn’t just an Indian Destination Wedding this was a wedding where we spent four unforgettable days with extraordinary people, the type that had dedicated the whole lives to making a difference in India and raising their beautiful children up in the land. So it only made sense for them to gather family and friends in one of the most magical parts of the world to celebrate the coming together of two families.

I could write a novel about the way India made me feel and the kindness we experienced whilst we were there but this post isn’t about me, its about Jordan and Nicole. It’s about how they have been in each others world’s from before they could walk and about how much they adore each other and their families. It’s about the connection they have to India and I hope the images that I have taken will be able to convey just that, their connections.

As I write this I well up in my eyes because I don’t think I could ever thank these families enough for giving Dirk and I such a life changing experience, it is something I will treasure in my heart forever, our lives are so much richer for meeting you all. As I say time and time again I feel incredibly honoured to be able to create art for a living but I feel even more grateful about the people I get to meet on this journey.

Enjoy their story, its a long but special one.
