The wind blew and the rain threatened as Ximena and Juan exchanged vows on Altona Beach Pier.
Ximena and Juan were born in the same town in Colombia. Their mothers are friends but never imagined after all these years their children would find love and settle in Australia.
The simple ceremony was witnessed by their two friends, Diego and Luisa, and they all laughed when l attempted to pronounce them "Marido" and "Esposa" and that Juan could,
"Puede besar a la novia"
After some photos,
We headed back to the sheltered park where the sun shone upon them as they signed their certificates.
It was an honor to be a part of Ximena and Juan's special day.
A true testament to the fact that whether you exchange vows in front of 200 people in a black tie affair or on your favourite pier with two friends - it has the same feeling, the same love and the same outcome.
"Felicidades por tu boda"
