Today I am honoured to share this breathtaking Beach couples shoot in Perth, Australia celebrating a lifetime of commitment and love.
Images were captured by Sujata Setia of But Natural Photography.
Sujata is a photographer who travels the world running photography workshops who often asks long married couples to pose for her, capturing their love in engagement style shoots in a project inspired by the beautiful relationship of her grandparents.
What she creates is both breathtaking and endearing and a celebration of a life well lived as a couple.
Sujata says of Dorothy and Waynes beautiful shoot…
Dorothy and Wayne have been married for 55 years and together for 57. And the love has only grown stronger.
Wayne first saw Dorothy in a pub and the moment he set his eyes on her, he knew…. she was the one!
“I saw Dorothy dancing with her girlfriend down the end of the hall and I mentioned to my friend who was with me, ‘That’s the girl, Im going to marry.
And 57 years later… we have weathered every single storm together and are still as good as new,'” said Wayne.
So to chronicle their undying love, I travelled all the way to Perth, Australia with a stunning wedding gown and suit, custom made by the amazing Abigail’s Collection & The Groom’s Room and spent two beautiful hours by the Indian Ocean… photographing these two beautiful souls.
When Dorothy got out of the changing room in this wedding gown… Wayne’s eyes lit up like a 1000 fairy lights and he said “I’m glad I’m taking this woman home tonight.” It was just magical!
But then just the very moment they sat down by the shore, waves came upon them with such gusto they were drenched to the last grain in their bodies with saltwater and yet they wouldn’t stop laughing…
It was a truly special experience to see them together. I swear, I went nuts apologising. I swear I haven’t said “I’m sorry” so many times in a minute as I did that day for them getting so drenched
But Wayne just casually smiled while kissing the soaked cheeks of Dorothy and said “Oh no worries. I could do this all day.”
Here’s to knowing… that true love does exist
Growing old together is our ultimate marriage goal and what Sujata has created in this spectacular beach couples shoot is so incredibly precious and endearing and a celebration of beautiful lives well lived as a couple..
