There are times in your life, where you simply need to take a leap of faith. Rachel & Sam, having met overseas & having planned their wedding together from two separate locations had the normal obstacles of distance to deal with. However, a fortnight before the wedding, they were confronted by the fact that Sam’s paperwork still wasn’t approved to allow him entrance into Australia & weren’t even sure if all their hard work would finally pay off. Rachel & Sam however, full-heartedly believed that this wedding was meant to go ahead & decided to trust God even till the last moment. Within just 5 days before the wedding, Sam finally arrived & there was no doubt of the strength & happiness this already added to their life together. As it happens, sometimes your wedding photographer needs to take a leap off faith too… The day before Rachel & Sam’s wedding I had arrived in Melbourne but what was meant to be a day of preparation for their wedding, turned out to be one in which I had the early onset of a virus where I couldn’t keep any food down, & all efforts to stay hydrated were in vain. I had a night-long fever, uncontrollable shaking from severe dehydration & with no rest in sight. So many ‘what ifs’…’ passed through my mind in what seemed like one incredibly dark, anxiety-filled night. But morning came at last & it brought with it my amazing husband who bought last-minute tickets to come to Melbourne & support me through the two weddings I needed to do. This wedding & the one that followed, were two days where I cannot claim the credit of a job well done – it was entirely in God’s strength; through His eyes, in His hands, with His guidance that these memories were captured for this beautiful couple.
