But ultimately there comes a moment when a decision must be made. Ultimately two people who love each other must ask themselves how much they hope for as their love grows and deepens, and how much risk they are willing to take…It is indeed a fearful gamble…Because it is the nature of love to create, a marriage itself is something which has to be created, so that, together we become a new creature.
To marry is the biggest risk in human relations that a person can take…If we commit ourselves to one person for life this is not, as many people think, a rejection of freedom; rather it demands the courage to move into all the risks of freedom, and the risk of love which is permanent; into that love which is not possession, but participation…It takes a lifetime to learn another person…When love is not possession, but participation, then it is part of that co-creation which is our human calling, and which implies such risk that it is often rejected.

Photographer's Snippet: The initial email from Duncan reads: “As my fiancee works in fashion we are looking for a photographer who can bring that extra dimension to our day. Your background and gallery shots suggest that you are very much the ones for us!” Sandra studied fashion design and is opening her own boutique. It comes as no surprise then that Sandra designed her wedding dress herself - with a 6 meter train! Sandra’s family are from Columbia and Duncan’s are English so it was a great mix of ideas and inspirations including a super cool Mariachi band at the wedding reception which was held at Goodwood House. Duncan and Sandra’s wedding ceremony took place at the very grand Arundel Cathedral in West Sussex. Arundal Cathedral was built in 1873 in a French Gothic style and makes for a fairytale wedding ceremony venue.
Bridal Preparations took place at the quirky Angmering Manor Hotel.
