This Couple Lost All Their Wedding Pictures - But What Happened Next is So Special
London based coupled Ché and Warren tied the knot in South
Africa in April 2013. They had a stunning wedding and expected to receive their
amazing photos after the big day, like all couples…
However, disaster struck when their photographer revealed
all their wedding photos were lost when his dog ran past his desk and smashed
his hard drive. The newlyweds were devastated, as you would be – all they had
were a couple of low-res pictures from their ceremony and some unedited
pictures from their evening party. They had no couple pictures, no family shots
and none of the details.
To take their minds of things, Ché and Warren decided to
attend a music festival in Belgium. Ché joked to her husband that she should
wear her wedding dress and get some pictures. To her surprise, Warren replied
with: “Well, I’d better take my suit then!”
The idea snowballed and soon the couple had pictures of them
in Amsterdam, the French Alps and Sydney Harbour in their wedding outfits, and
began logging their story and their adventures on their Instagram page, WeddingDressAdventures.
This is when wedding photographer Kat Forsyth learned about
the couple’s story and decided to help out. “I loved her sense of humour about
what had happened and the fact that she and Warren were totally taking the
lemons life had given them and having a gin and tonic,” explained Kat.
Kat emailed back and forth with Ché and Warren before they
all agreed on a beautiful photo shoot with smoke bombs in the golden afternoon
light. The results will take your breath away…
How beautiful is their story?
