Summer 2015 did not disappoint with incredible celebrity engagements and weddings. Our favourite celebrities not only entertained us but also empowered, intrigued, and inspired us. Whether style, fashion, attitude, or an on-screen or off-screen relationship, they can even act as our role models. We see their love stories unfold on cameras and in front of our eyes, so when their relationships evolved into engagements and weddings, we feel as if we are a part of their story. We cherish celebrity proposals, above-the-ordinary engagement rings, designer wedding dresses, star-studded guests list, and their love soaked weddings.
Some images are crisp and sophisticated, some are flirtatious and playful (that smile, Tristan…no wonder Rachel is crazy about you!!), and some are downright…fire. It’s the perfect union of the couple, location and photographer. And it’s the perfect example of the magic that happens when two joyfully in love people allow their hearts to shine through each moment and each pose.
