International Wedding Photography at Sunbird Livingstonia Beach, Malawi
Over New Year I had the honour of doing my first wedding in Malawi. While I was doing this New Years Wedding I met Adam & Katie. We spent some fun hours together on Lake Malawi over that period and soon I was asked if I would be able to capture their wedding in May as well.
The first weekend in May 2017 was the special occasion for the lovely couple. Because of other work commitments I could not go to Malawi for too long and I flew out on the Friday from OR Thambo International Airport to Lilongwe in Malawi. From there a 90 minute drive to Lake Malawi where the wedding would be. The Sunday I was already heading back to South Africa.
When I got to the hotel I immediately knew why they selected the venue for their wedding. The Sunbird Livingstonia Beach Hotel is situated on the lake and you get that being at the sea feeling. The air is clean and the sky so blue. Just perfect for taking photos. Friday night I decided not to enjoy in the activities on the beach where they had a bonfire. I stayed in and got some rest, as I knew Saturday will be very busy for me.
Saturday morning brought some strong winds and the waves was crashing on the beach giving any potential surfer ideas. The atmosphere was very relaxed and everyone was relaxing at the pool until it was time for the bridal party to start get ready. In a blink of an eye it was time for the ceremony and even quicker the day was gone.
Adam & Katie, THANK YOU once again for the opportunity to capture your special day. I hope that the photos I showcase here tells a nice story of the day? May you be very happy and blessed and hope to see you guys soon for another adventure.
I showcase more than normal as Katie’s family is all in the USA and will not be able to see the photos in album form soon.
