K+J’s elopement: All we need is each other.
“James and I met at work a year ago and it was love at first sight! We took a while to become friends, and once we got the courage up to admit to our feelings, we have been inseparable!!! We love driving with each other, going on road trips, being spontaneous, listening to music, talking, laughing. We are both passionate people and share our love for each other constantly. He is my dream come true! ”
Inseparable. Passionate. And true.
They are indeed all of it, and so much more. They are friendship set on fire. They look at each other like everything begins and ends with each other. They are soulful and wholehearted. I fel ...

N+I Macedonian Greek wedding at the Warwick le Lagon in Port Vila
I LOVE a wedding with a cultural twist, especially when it involves cultures and traditions that are new to me. I love the feeling of belonging to a community, the sheer joy in the act of sharing a common heritage, the pride. It’s beautiful.
Ionie and Nik’s wedding at the Warwick le Lagon, in Port Vila, was a perfect example of such a wedding. Ionie has Greek origins while Nik’s family comes from Macedonia. Both live in Australia, and because all three locations were too close to their hearts to choose between them where to have their wedding, they decided to fly to Vanuatu with about fifty of their closest family and friends and tie the k ...

A+H Ratua, a private island for a magical beach wedding
Here I am at the airport again, kissing hubby good bye, hugging baby Moira as tight as I dare and telling her mummy will be back in the blink of an eye. This time, I’m off to Ratua. If the name Ratua doesn’t mean anything to you, I suggest you head to Google when you’re looking for a dream destination, or the place for an absolutely perfect beach wedding.
In the Vanuatu archipelago, 0ff the coast of Santo, Ratua island resort is a private island, with hundred years old wooden bungalows and a spa facing the ocean, ancient trees lightened up with storm lamps perfect for a diner in the wild, turquoise waters home to green sea turtles and colo ...

H + L Love off the coast of Africa
Fire. This is the word that comes to my mind first when I go back to this afternoon walk on a little island off the African coast with Hector and Laura. The wind that day was unforgiving, the sand whipping, the ocean angry. Yet, these two had not a care in the world for mother nature's moodiness. Quite the opposite, in fact. Their passion and free spirits actually matched the wildness of this awe inspiring landscape perfectly.
They raced with the wind, hand in hand, laughing like children. They kissed the taste of salt carried by the sea on each other's lips and it made them thirsty for more. They played and fooled around like mad people i ...

B+S: Beach babes in the golden Vanuatu sunset
Ben surfs barrels like he was born from the ocean. Sandrine dances on the enchanting rhythms of Tahiti with the grace of the sun. They have known each other since they were 16. That was 25 years ago. Hard to believe! They just look so young at heart and smitten, it seems like they have just met and swept each other off their feet. Honestly, if I have ever seen a man look at a woman like she is his everything, it's Ben looking at Sandrine. And if I have ever seen a woman smile at her man like he is the only star in her entire sky, it's how Sandrine looks at Ben. And call me corny, call me hopeless, but boy, that kind of love... sigh. I want to ...

M+T: Australia and Spain getting on fire in the Canary desert
Mick is a chill dude from Australia. Toscana is a true Spanish beauty. They met travelling in Amazonia. And believe me, their story could easily compete with any adventure-filled Hollywood romance flick. I mean, he actually rescued her from a crocodile before they even shared a first kiss. No kidding. He went back home, she texted him from the middle of nowhere in China. They met again. They hit a wall, they met again. They got married. They had a little girl and were now expecting a little boy. Sigh... Let me tell you, these two incredible humans have a love story made in the very fabric of wildness and romance. And they bear this fire in th ...

How to get great photos of your children?
Three little words. Let. Them. Be.
Children are wonderful because they are true to themselves. Let them be just that. If your kid is an introvert who likes to observe the world around him or her in silence, let him or her do that. If he or she likes to play outside and mess up his or her clothes, let your photos show that. If they like to laugh out loud and goof around, don't force them to sit and be still and wear that perfectly fake smile. The truth is as good as a picture perfect family portrait may sound, when your kids grow older, you won't care about these photos, you will care about the photos that truly remind you of how ...

M+E: Boho Romance in the Canary Island
Some might call it remote. Some might call it hostile. Most will call it mesmerizing. La Graciosa. The name itself feels like a tale of wind and sand, of men and sea, of sun and dunes. To get there you will have to fly to the Canary island of Lanzarote, drive up north, take a ferry and leave it all behind for days, for weeks, for months, for years. You decide. When you reach, the little harbour village is all white and blue against the vast landscape and sleeping volcano. The moment you set foot on the wharf, it is like the island casts a spell on you and you are under its charm.
This is where Oli and I met Eduardo and Miriam. And they, to ...
