Marnus & Lucy… The Cowshed

“Promise to stay wild with me. We’ll seek and return and stay and find beauty and the extraordinary in all the spaces we can claim.
We’ll know how to live. How to breathe magic into the mundane.” – Victoria Erickson

When a Scottish lass meets a wild man from Africa you know that sparks will fly and that’s exactly the case with Marnus and Lucy.

Even though Lucy is a new character in our story, Marnus joined our book more than a decade ago and are in many chapters of our lives. S & I were overjoyed {and petrified} when asked to capture their wedding day. We knew it would be exciting, challenging and we were so so thrilled  for Marnus and so curious to meet this girl who grabbed his heart that we just couldn’t refuse. Being both guests at the wedding and the photographers proved interesting and allowed us to capture moments which showed them exactly as they are… deep in conversation, always busy, crazy about their dogs and so close to their family. It showed Marnus’s faith and everlasting passion and how gently Lucy can steal the spotlight with a bright smile and her electric laugh.

The whole weekend at the very special The Cowshed was a melting pot of cultures, yummy cuisine and traditions and between the kilts and vellies a new family was joined with so much laughter and dancing that even the cattle could not rest that night. And I can tell you that I never thought we would be hopping around with a camera in one hand and hooked into a Scottish dance with the other. And on the notes of Ed Sheeran’s ” Thinking out loud”  { Sung by the groom’s brother Rebert} Marnus pulled out moves we never knew this bushveld man had.

There were unique touches, from the hints of Scotland in the reception shed and practicing the traditional dances the night before { luckily no one filmed us South –Africans trying to keep up}… the sound of a Highland bagpipe as Lucy came walking up the dirt road to the wedding ceremony … Marnus’s gift to his groomsmen…the African Dancers… the Hog roast on the Sunday. A truly special occasion! The groom’s mother put is perfectly: “… we were all glued together by our love for Marnus & Lucy…”.

Have a look at some of the very first entries on our old blog { www.dustanddreamsphotography.blogspot.com}  from when Marnus first started with his non-profit organisation Walking for Lions and we joined him for a walk in Namibia and Botswana. Some people know him as the Lion man, for us he is still just Marnus, a  favourite in our book and now we have a Lucy too…

PS: The Cowshed… it’s absolutely unique and we were bowled over by the attention to detail in absolutely everything, not to even mention the breath taking views!

PSS: We wish we could add more of their beautiful photos …
