An Intimate Celebration – Henri & Burnise
What a special wedding celebration! Intimate and done in their home! I was so looking forward to share in Henri & Burnise’s wedding…for this fact. I love small and intimate weddings! Also were looking forward to experience By Word of Mouth‘s catering and event co-ordination again! And then off course, to capture Burnise’s wedding for her, and get to know her soul mate closer.
I mean, who is this man who captured the heart of this beautiful lady? …so much so, that she was content to retire from a 23 year career in Ballet dancing and performances, being Johburg Ballet’s Prima Ballerina for the last 4 years. Prima Ballerina, a rare and special accolade, given only to the most exceptional of principal dancers! I trust the images will say it all. This collection is a testimony to a tender love, fully committed to a companionship for life AND a prima ballerina’s graceful presence on her wedding day!
Henry and Burnise, thank you for entrusting your love story to me. I wish you a fulfilling life together…may you love each other so well that the dance of your souls will reach a higher goal. Not one of precise and highly formalized sets of steps and gestures, but one of discovering each other’s weaknesses and strengths, and forming a union that is one is spirit and one in mind, glorifying God as Creator and Master of your souls. Lots of love, Lucinda
If then there is any encouragement in Christ, if any consolation of love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, fulfill my joy by thinking the same way, having the same love, sharing the same feelings, focusing on one goal. Do nothing out of rivalry or conceit, but in humility consider others as more important than yourselves. Everyone should look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. – Philippians 2:1-4
