lakshalperera There's so many things I could say about Staci and Simon. But I decided against telling the story of what happened on their wedding day. I think the 15 years that led to this day is where the real beauty is.

Check out their story on the blog featuring more photos than any other blog posting I've ever made! Check it out right here: http://bit.ly/stacisimon

lakshalperera Five years ago today, @kristen.mary came into my life. From the first day, we both knew our lives had forever changed for the better. Without her support and love, my world would be utterly different in countless ways. I'd probably still be a miserable and unmotivated research scientist working in a dark lab somewhere. Because of her, I am the complete opposite, literally and metaphorically. Kristen has an amazing power to positively influence the lives of everyone she meets, she's an inspiration as well as a kind ear and gentle heart and I love her more than I could ever thought was possible to love a human. It makes me so happy and proud to call her my wife. #anniversary #love #wivesarethebest #behomesoon 4w

lakshalperera Liggy and Mark were married at Mark's family's farm on the south eastern corner of Scotland. Considering it had been the wettest July in a long time for this part of the world, there was unsurprisingly predictions for heavy rain all day. Thankfully, for the most part, it held off. To top it all off, their daylight hours ended with this beautiful sunset, the absolute least that these two extraordinarily wonderful people deserved.

lakshalperera Becky and Joe live in the south east of England with their beautiful daughter Evie. They are a beautiful family and Evie's smile lights up her loving parents' faces with joy. And after nearly 15 years of being together, Becky and Joe celebrated their wedding yesterday and it was simply incredible.

lakshalperera Setting goals for yourself can be hard if you compare yourself to other people. This is why it makes sense to build a business based around your values and what YOU want rather than what other people have.

lakshalperera As far as international love stories go, Loretta and Justin's is a pretty beautiful one. Meeting in Africa, thousands of km from both of their homes, they've flown, driven, walked and patiently waited for visas to make their love into a life together. Their heartwarming and love filled wedding is on the blog tonight.

lakshalperera These are my dear friends Elodie and Wan. They were married a few weekends ago at a beautiful gîte in a little village in the south of France near where Elo's parents and grandparents live. It's an amazing landscape filled with rolling hills of corn, wheat, sunflowers and grapes - a place I got to spend a week or so with along with the two of them and our other friends.

It's land of hard work and toil, but ultimately it rewards you for your patience and effort. This is what Elo and Wan have experienced too, they've faced many challenges to be together including being separated by continents. But in the end, they made it and their hashtag said it all - #lovewins.

lakshalperera There are days when you just run out of superlatives to describe two people. They are everything to each other and to the people they love - and that is the beginning and end of it all.

Chris and Ceinwen were married in a small village in France yesterday and I was one of the privileged people who was there to share in their beautiful wedding day.

lakshalperera Guess what? 2mon
  •   lakshalperera OK more clues @nicolabnm: this isn't what it usually looks like and its a long way away! 2mon
  •   lakshalperera @bengmorgan I'm enjoying myself actually. ;) 2mon
  •   nicolabnm A planet? I say Jupiter that was just in alignment with the other planets and tom thinks the sun. Now you're going to tell us it's a bottle top or something!!! 2mon
  •   lakshalperera Tom wins @nicolabnm :) It's the sun through a hydrogen alpha filter (#nerdalert) which is why it looks different! You can just kinda see the solar prominences on the edge! :) 2mon
  •   nicolabnm Dammit! We've just had our first fight Tom just said "yes those solar prominences got me". Nerd alert indeed (he is now googling a hydrogen alpha filter). 2mon
  •   nicolabnm Very cool pic though! 2mon
  •   lakshalperera Good thing its night time and he's ready for bed @nicolabnm - it's some pretty dry reading material!!! 2mon

lakshalperera Finally, I am back into the world of Internet connectivity! I've had about 9 days in rural Italy and the southern countryside of France which has been exhilarating and so rewarding. In that time, I've met some amazing and wonderful people as well as photographing two beautiful weddings.

I'm now in a little town near Cognac with another wedding tomorrow but before then, I wanted to share a photo from Lou and Jeff - two amazing and kind people who were married at a castle atop a hill in the Umbrian countryside. Don't worry, there will be many more photos of the castle soon!
