“We love because He first loved us.”
It was the middle of winter, perched in the clouds on a mountain top for sunset on the NSW South Coast, when Tom asked Simone to be his Wife. 198 sunsets later it is Saturday the 18th January 2014, on a warm summers afternoon when Tom and Simone said yes to forever. Nestled amongst the eucalyptus trees at South Narrawallee Beach bush reserve, family and friends gathered from all over the nation. This was a celebration. A celebration of life, marriage and an unconditional love. This day could only be described as incredible, it was an intimate reflection of who Tom and Simone are as a couple, what they love and what they believe in. From the bohemian-beach-bush ceremony, the vibrant flowers to the happy-hearted family and friends who gathered, laughed and danced the night away; it truly was a remarkable celebration.
“Depth over distance every time my dear”.
