One small change you would have noticed is that I haven’t written since 23 March 2012. That was a mere 8 days before our wedding which took place in Stanford at Beloftebos on 1 April 2012.
A day out of time; if ever there was one, this was it. It didn’t last for half as long as it felt when it was happening. I could live in that day forever. The sun shone, a light breeze blew, the elements blessed our day. The company was creative, the theme was supported, and the smiles, the smiles were abundant. It was home. It was worth every second of anguish, every quibble, every cent of every rand, every lesson learned and every challenge faced. There is something that falls into place in life when you say ‘I do’. It’s a calming of the soul so drastic that is difficult to comprehend. A place in our minds where we can always go to remember, what it is like to be blissfully happy. Through the good times and the bad. A memory that no one can take that away from us. Especially if you were blessed with our photographers skill set.
This is just the beginning. A small selection of the many amazing photo’s Deb took . Deborah Rossouw is the creative genius behind One Small Change. ‘Like’ One Small Change here or browse her blog , Picasso page or Google +profile. From the get-go, Debs understood my creative vision. More than understanding it, she made it reality. It was the experience of a lifetime and the most fun I have ever had working with a photographer ( and I have worked with more than a few). I have been waiting in anticipation of the photo’s that would do the day justice before posting anything on my blog. Apparently they will still take sometime. Not to worry, I say, take all the time you need. I can recognise an artist at work when I see one. In the meantime to quench my thirst for photo’s, she uploaded some of the posed shots we took together, which were incredible.
This seemingly insignificant one small change is actually quite the contrary. You don’t think to yourself, as you walk down the aisle, in the next 15 minutes my life will be changed for the better forever. Perhaps my subconscious knew, but I had no idea. Getting married is like a Power Pellet to your Pac-Man, an extend to your Bobble Bobble, one hundred mushrooms to your Super Mario, a serious Mana-filled jar of power-up. A new level of consciousness and awareness in our lives. The communication flood gates fly open, there is a new strength in your life, in your bond and relationship, in your ability to succeed in life. We were blessed that day in our dappled green cathedral under the trees, before all of those we love most. I wrote a detailed pre account of the day in my diary over a year ago, what that day would be like and no big surprise, manifestation proves to work yet again, as it was exactly as I described. It was all thanks to our family, friends, suppliers and of course Beloftebos that this day came together so perfectly. One Small Significant Perfect Change. Thank you to everyone for your love, support and patience. Cultivate a culture of love. Keep Calm and stay Loca’l.
