My first proper destination wedding.
The reason I say proper is coz I’ve done weddings in places like Busselton and the like. But they’re still in Western Australia.
This one, though, is a whole different ball game.
I’ve never been to Mauritius, I’ve heard it’s nice, but apart from the endless beaches I don’t know much else about the country.
Rightly so, as Mauritius struck me as a throwback to a time when things were simpler.
When we didn’t have the internet at our fingertips, or the iphone, or laptops, or PS3s, or big flashy cars.
In Mauritius, time flows differently. It’s what they call ‘island time’.
And so it’s in this idyllic setting where Jess + Bjorn decided to have their wedding. Jess grew up here and going back to it, she took to the culture and language right away. It’s like she never left.
Jess and Bjorn’s families are some of the most amazing people I’ve had the privilege to meet.
I had an amazing time photographing their wedding and I won’t be forgetting it anytime soon.
And check out the slideshow, it’s got heaps more pics.
