Our first wedding anniversary

This June we celebrated our first wedding anniversary and our eighth year together. We were also planning to say goodbye to our trusty travel buddy and our old friend, our Land Rover Wimpy Hightop as to fulfill our Africa roadtripping dreams we needed a guy who was a little less thirsty than old Wimps.  We decided to return to the scene of our wedding for our first anniversary so we travelled up to our beloved Mozambique. We decided that instead of giving each other anniversary presents we would instead spend the money on buying stationary supplies for the orphanage around the corner from where we got married. We also made use of the wedding box Andy had made for us and we had sealed up at our ceremony. (We put in a bottle of our fave wine, dark chocolate and our wedding vows to read on our first anniversary and would then replace it every year with new wine, chocolate and vows to each other). Be warned, there are a fair few “selfies” in here but as its documenting our wedding anniversary I aint gonna apologise ;)  Here are a few snaps from our trip.

Andy with the wine box he lovingly made for our wedding one year ago. This is the first time we opened it since our wedding day. While we drank the amazing Chocolate Block wine we read the vows we had made to each other and wrote new ones to put back into the box.

Anyone who knows anything about Land Rovers will tell you part of the fun of having  a Landy travel buddy is the spontaneous and unexpected places it can make you see (when you break down in random places…) Luckily Andy has been fixing Wimpy for years so when we broke a brake line it wasnt the end of the world.  We managed to jimmy it to travel home on a single wheel’s brake. Who said Landy’s dont make life more adventurous?!

Turns out putting a nail in the bust brake line bypasses it and enables you to carry on with your trip :)

  • First dance cuddles. I’m always such a softy for a good first dance! Whether that be something beautifully choreographed (if that’s your vibe), or a simple side to side shuffle. It’s the time in the night when any formalities are done, and the settling in to just enjoy the  rest of the evening has begun ☺️
  • Goosebumps and loving caresses.
  • We’ve never been big fans of set up photos where a couple stands for ages while some off camera flash is set up to get some backlight... we like to keep things more natural and moving. But this happened at the end of Kate and Brett’s couple shoot as I was driving our car up to take them back to their reception. Our car lights illuminated Kate and the slowly dripping rain, and Andy made some magic with it.
  • People always say rain on your wedding day is good luck... but bucketing rain and then a break, to grab some pics? Even more lucky 🙌🏽
  • Kate, ethereal forest nymph.
  • Rain yesterday? What rain?! Kate and Brett were fire 🔥

So amazing working with the talented babes from @Nixon makeup. @james_peters_film at one of our faves @crystalbarncountryestate with Kate in a stunning @chanellecindy_bridal dress (SO many more pics of the dress to come 😍)
  • These two couldn’t keep their eyes off of each other the entire day. Their love was such a joy to witness and recharged my wedding stoke in a massive way!
  • Kerry and Shane’s music video is up on our Vimeo page. Go check it out x
  • Weddings bring out all the powerful emotions. Of those we love, and of those we miss.
  • Bright light and big beach cuddles 💜
  • As much as I love a good, set up arty shot, sometimes those in between moments are everything 💜
  • It rained most of the day for Mari and Seb’s wedding, but just before sunset, we got this magic 🔥

  • People watching from the shade.
  • Exploring the narrow streets and alleyways of Stone Town, Zanzibar. This place reminds us so much of the old part of Jeddah with the African/Arab cross culture and architecture.
  • It may be “sun’s out, guns out”, but it’s “balls out” at sunset when the heat finally let’s up.
  • Excellent vibe on what’s left of the beach at high tide.
  • Ocean and people watching from a shadey spot. The guy on the right, dressed in tradition Masai garb, is David. We had along chat about tattoos before he sold me a bracelet.
  • Dear god it’s hot. But also quite nice.
  • Hello Zanzibar 🤗 Can’t wait to get in that water!
  • We’re a hazard when we’re walking the streets cus we’re always looking up and bumping into people. Obsessed with the beautiful Dutch architecture!
  • If you really want to blow your mind in Amsterdam, try walking round an art gallery after visiting a “coffeeshop”. 🤯
  • Yesterday it was sunny, but the overcast sky and light drizzle suit this place way more. #wechooseadventure_scotland #wechooseadventure
  • Exploring Edinburgh at night. In this place, if it’s not raining, it’s about to rain. #wechooseadventure #wechooseadventure_scotland
  • Made a special mission to see these guys in Glasgow last night. Absolutely epic! @coheed
