Last December for her birthday, I surprised my wife with a sunset helicopter tour. The two weeks between booking the experience and the reveal were excruciating and keeping a secret from my wife definitely added a few grey hairs to the collection.
January 2018 and after months of planning, Amanda and Noel-Shaun surprised their engagement party guests with a wedding. As night fell on their rooftop location, Amanda’s dress sparkled brightly, the perfect match to her contagious smile.
After the ceremony, Amanda and Noel-Shaun stood together, husband and wife, and gave a heartfelt thanks to their guests. Then, gripping hands tightly and with reassuring looks at one another, they proudly announced a second surprise - that they were in fact, expecting.
Embraces, tears, shouts of joy. So much to goodness to celebrate on this clear summers evening.
I know the burden of keeping this a secret from friends and family was tough, so it’s not just a congratulations that are in order, but a massive kudos in pulling this beautiful moment off.
Amanda and Noel-Shaun, I can’t thank you enough for inviting me to capture your evening. This is your story xxx
I love all weddings but for those who do things just a little bit differently - you guys have a special place in my heart. I still limited availability for 2018 and am now accepting bookings for 2019 so if you plan on getting hitched, get in touch - I'd love to hear from you!
