With the backdrop of the mountains and the expansive sea, and under the shade of the trees Onyi and Dom said ‘I Do’ in front of their friends and family in Langkawi.
“Love is a temporary madness, it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion, it is not the desire to mate every second minute of the day, it is not lying awake at night imagining that he is kissing every cranny of your body. No, don’t blush, I am telling you some truths. That is just being “in love”, which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident.” Louis de Bernieres (from Captain Corelli’s Mandolin)
Not to say these two weren’t also madly in love, but there was also such a deep-rooted and gentleness to the way they were togther. I loved every moment documenting this wedding, seeing the clouds form before the ceremony with the hint of rain before melting away and allowing the sun to bathe its orange warmth on the two newlyweds.
