Tucked away in Hawkesbury is a little gem I never knew existed and the view from the top of the hill is absolutely amazing. Had an awesome time photographing these two legends and it was one of the best bridal entrances I’ve ever witnessed! Seriously everybody was into it from the young to the elders, there was so much vibe and energy. When asked about their love story this is what they told me: Our love story began in Sydney, back in 2008. Marlowe invited Sonita over for a night of country music, Sonita declined.
After a few anonymous texts from Marlowe, some flirtatious banter was exchanged back and forth over dinner at a local Chinese restaurant. Many meals later and a few kilo’s heavier, Marlowe finally had the courage to ask Sonita to be his girlfriend on New Year’s Day. They discovered a mutual love of food, travel, adventure and late-night karaoke bars, the rest is history!
9 years’ worth of memories later, they’ve campervanned through New Zealand’s South Island, survived the full moon party in Thailand, snowboarded through Niseko, Japan’s amazing snow fields and indulged in degustations around Sydney and Melbourne. Now in the process of building their dream home and although starting their family early with their little girl Willow (their fur baby) they will one day fulfill their parents’ dream of becoming grandparents.
A year and a half ago Marlowe finally popped the question in Hawaii during their Lanikai Pillbox hike, with drone footage and all, Sonita said YES! We can’t wait for this exciting new chapter to begin! 29th September 2018 – BEST DAY EVER!
