Previously KNOT JUST PICS. Same shit, different name.

For both of us, Cuba has always been high on the list of places we have wanted to go. When we got the chance to travel to the Caribbean for work, we knew that we just had to try and spend some time in Cuba while we were there. Apologies in advance if this becomes somewhat of an essay, but there is just far too much to say about this fascinating place… Most people seem to think of Che Guevara, Mojitos, old cars and the Buena Vista Social Club when Cuba is mentioned – and all this is totally spot on so we won’t need to go into that side of things here. Cuba is currently in a very interesting place – somewhere between old fashioned socialism/still heavily embargoed by the US and opening up to the world now that Fidel Castro has passed away. We knew we didn’t want to stay in a government run hotels (which they all are, and was where most Americans and other rich Europeans who relished in the power of their currencies stayed), the only time we dared to venture into them was to use their internet – wifi and even mobile phones are VERY new developments in Cuba. Since Raul Castro took over, and Cubans have gradually been allowed to explore private enterprise, Casa Particulares have sprung up all over the place – these are rooms in local Cuban’s houses that they rent out to tourists as way of making some money, and provide an incredible opportunity for tourists to see how real Cubans live. Our first Casa Particulare was in the heart of the less touristy part of old Havana with an amazing family (and kitty). Most people here are poor, very poor –  in a kind of way you only can be by decades of hardship. They have very little and live in very small homes yet have the biggest and most generous hearts. Private lives are lived out on the street, and the sense of community here is unlike anywhere we have ever been. People, live, eat, dance and sing on the street and everywhere is full of the most electric creative energy. There is art everywhere and music emanating from houses around every corner. People salsa in the street, alongside those selling bread and fixing their cars. This is a collection of some snapshots from our wanderings around the streets.

  • Probably the single most shot rooftop in Durban... but damn those views kill every damn time 😍
  • As we prep for tomorrow’s Durban city wedding, I found myself thinking of the incredibly awesome (and only slightly illegal) time we had with Sara and Barend a couple of months back 🔥
  • Getting to witness this private moment between Amanda’s mum and granny on the morning of her wedding - years of life and comfort in one cuddle is everything. It’s these photos that give such value to what we do. Way more than anything else ever could.
  • Claire’s brother walked her down the aisle. His high fiving Adam must be one of the best bride send offs we’ve seen ☺️
  • If I am a bit quiet on posting on here it’s because we are away in the Highlands for a little birthday getaway to rest and recharge. I am posting a lot of IG stories though so you don’t have to feel like you’re missing us too much ☺️

  • Today’s cold and rainy. But yesterday was just perfect for these two 🙌🏽
  • We dragged them out in 5 degree weather for these pics - but from this love bubble you would never say they were freezing their asses off...
  • Elaine and Stephen got married yesterday and it was bloody epic 🔥
  • Weekending always get us excited. Even more so when we get to hang out with amazing people 🙌🏽
  • Off to Glasgow to shoot the wedding of these two babes this weekend 🙌🏽
  • Last night we got to see @biffy_clyro unplugged at the @paradisoadam, an old church converted to a concert venue. It was the most incredible experience. These 3 Scotsman (who we were only 4 rows away from), have to be some of the loveliest and most humble musicians we have ever watched. Their band is so special to us as one of their songs was our first dance at our wedding. Getting to see them perform in such an intimate setting was absolutely breathtaking.
  • Those first dance good vibes 🤘🏼
