Nicola & Glen________P I NSite Image

Our story started over ten years ago. We met when Nicola, satisfying her wanderlust, found herself on this small island. Glen, recently returned from a few years of globetrotting himself, was realising his next ambition of running his own business as a restaurateur. Fate played its part and Nicola found herself in a charming Oxfordshire village being interviewed by Glen for a job to fund further travels. Of course Nicola got the post and we instantly connected. Our shared interest in photography gave us an excuse to spend more time together outside of work. Lending Nicola his film camera to document the rest of her journey through Europe Glen ensured her return to England before heading back to South Africa. That goodbye was the hardest and resulted in a two year long distance relationship while Nicola completed a degree in the arts. Daily calls from the public phone booths of the university halls (these were still the pre-Skype years) and fleeting visits to the UK between each semester got us through it. The turning point came when Glen decided to sell his business in the UK and move to Cape Town to pursue his passion by retraining in photography. You could say photography brought us together but it was encouraging one another to follow our dreams whole heartedly that ultimately aligned the stars in our favour. Now we live in the Cotswolds, one of the most beautiful parts of the world, with our chocolate Burmese cat Hemingway. We are wedding photographers, avid travelers, obsessed with documenting the most beautiful love stories where we capture soulmates shining their brightest because of their love.
