Courtney and James; a fairytale wedding.

Marriage; a word defining the union and sanctity of a relationship between two people who love each other so deeply, to form a legally recognised partnership throughout the remainder of their lives.

Muse couple Courtney and James are the epitome of what defines a relationship encompassing everlasting love. They are not only soulmates, but best friends, and completely devoted to one another, unconditionally.

After months of planning, the big day had finally arrived. It was the 18th of November, and the weather was simply perfect. Four seasons in one with looming storm clouds, finishing with sunshine and golden glows.

On what seemed like only yesterday, Courtney and James reflected on the most unforgettable moments of their wedding day, including writing their own vows and not sharing them with each other until that moment, and laughing together throughout the ceremony. A day celebrated with all of their family and friends, the couple felt so lucky to have had so many amazing people in their lives that have supported them over the years, and for those that gave such heartwarming speeches in honour of the newlyweds.

One of Courtney's most memorable moments was walking down the aisle to Jason Mraz’ ‘I Won’t Give Up’; a song seemingly written for the couple, with lyrics defining resilience and devotion to one another.

Well, I won’t give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I’m giving you all my love
I’m still looking up.

Seeing James waiting for her at the end of the aisle instantly eased her mind, followed by overwhelming excitement, knowing she was about to commit to forever with the love of her life.  “All of my nerves left, I just love his smile!”

Looking back, the couple both agreed that their advice to other couples, and the most memorable way to soak up every moment was to take time to reflect and cherish every minute of the day. “Take your bride and sneak away from the party. Have a moment with just the two of you and appreciate everybody that is there for you, dancing, singing and having a wonderful time.”
