Destination weddings are becoming a trend nowadays. It’s the idea of celebrating the couple’s union and love with the closest people in their lives, away from the city, from the stress, the hustle and having nature as their view as they say “I do” that couples long for.
In my second wedding shoot in Batanes, I’d say the atmosphere still serve this very purpose. The mountains are one with your love, and the breeze will hug your heart sprightly and all you want to do is fill your lungs with that fresh air, with your arms wide open, as you run, or simple sit and stare. A simple celebration of life and love.
Batanes, for Mark and Kate, was the perfect place to seal their marriage. Being photo enthusiasts and adventurers, they spent their engagement and post engagement shoot walking, trekking, jumping, running, sitting, lying, smiling and laughing in the mountains and beaches. We were greeted with the sun and breeze. A perfect time to do just anything. It was their first time to see the sights of Batanes and their idea was to tour while we shoot. They enjoy the view and the moment–a leisure slash work–very casual and nothing formal. And with their guests close to about 40 only, their wedding was very simple but filled with smiles, care and singing. A simple celebration of life and love indeed.
