Mike & Liesel

Weddings are always special occasions. I had the privilege of photographing Dr Mike and Liesel’s wedding. They held it in their garden at home. In their garden there is a wall where friends and family wrote "Before I die I want to……" and one of the messages was: "Live Life and Laugh till I die."
