Marcella + Chris | White Rock Wedding Photographer

 

I had a wonderful session recently with Marcella and Chris, who met at a writing club a few years ago and promptly fell in love.  Together, they make the kind of couple you read about only in romance novels. Not that Marcella goes around wearing corsets and Chris has long flowing hair a la Fabio, necessarily, but they are so romantic and well-suited in the sense that, really, you couldn’t write a better partner for either of them.

Chris, an Australian, is a rugged, quiet, and sensitive young man, and the way he looks at Marcella? Well, I wish that every woman could experience that kind of adoration at least once in her life!

They had a small, intimate wedding ceremony in Stanley Park, and didn’t have the luxury of an professional wedding photographer. To them and their love, then, I dedicate this session.

And in the spirit of love; my favourite vows by Roy Croft:

I love you

 

Not only for what you are,
But for what I am
When I am with you.

I love you,
Not only for what
You have made of yourself,
But for what
You are making of me.

2011 - COUPLES - MARCELLA-CHRIS-1410_WEBI love you
For the part of me
That you bring out;

I love you
For putting your hand
Into my heaped-up heart
And passing over
All the foolish, weak things
That you can’t help
Dimly seeing there,

And for drawing out
Into the light
All the beautiful belongings
That no one else had looked
Quite far enough to find

 

2011 - COUPLES - MARCELLA-CHRIS-1513 copy copy_WEBI love you because you
Are helping me to make
Of the lumber of my life
Not a tavern
But a temple.

Out of the works
Of my every day
Not a reproach
But a song.

2011 - COUPLES - MARCELLA-CHRIS-1613_WEBI love you
Because you have done
More than any creed
Could have done
To make me good.
And more than any fate
Could have done
To make me happy.

2011 - COUPLES - MARCELLA-CHRIS-1637_WEBYou have done it
Without a touch,
Without a word,
Without a sign.

2011 - COUPLES - MARCELLA-CHRIS-1674_WEB

You have done it
By being yourself.

Perhaps that is what
Being a friend means,
After all.
