Sarah had always wanted to learn to surf, so she decided to leave her cold Canadian home and travel to Australia to explore a bit and hit some waves. At the same time, Mark was also in Australia (from South Africa) and they found themselves staying at the same backpackers, well, Mark was living in his car outside the backpackers, but that’s kinda the same thing… As they were both on holiday, neither of them were exactly looking for love, but after a couple of weeks of hanging out, and then exploring the Oz coastline together, they returned to their respective homelands and realized that they had both left a piece of themselves in Australia. After trying out the long distance thing for a bit, Sarah took the plunge and moved to South Africa to give it a shot with this “siff” Mark guy. Many years have passed since then and they have explored the world and continue living adventurously together. When we met up with them for a coffee to get to know them, we chatted for about an hour before the Wedding word even came up, an indication of how awesome these guys are and how incredible it is to meet such brilliant people you just click with. Sarah and Mark’s wedding was a beautiful product of their adventurous spirits, with guests flying in from all over the world to share their incredible union at the Orchid House. We had an incredible time sharing their day with them, when Sarah walked down the aisle to Foo Fighters Everlong (Andy’s favourite song to air drum to) accompanied by both her parents, the intense emotion was tangible! Sarah and Mark, wishing you guys so many more incredible adventures! And see you guys next year in Canada! This post is a long one, but we simply couldnt tell the story of their day in any fewer pictures x
Oh my goodness, this bridal party has to be one of the craziest and awesome that we have hung out with for a long time!
Sarah and Mark have a such a beautiful love, but also such a goofy one, which was just too awesome to witness!
The last air guitar groom I’ve seen was Andy at our own wedding, so you know these guys were special!
