“Be the change you want to see in the world” -Mahatma Gandhi
Over the summer I was honored to shoot a church blessing of a local gay couple, Adrian and Shane. I got to know their story during the engagement session and first meeting and couldn’t wait to be a part of their very special day. They are what true love is all about. Bermuda does not yet allow same-sex marriage, so they got married in NYC prior to the celebration in Bermuda. They had to apply to have their service in the church Adrian’s family had been members of for generations. I had tears in my eyes throughout the day knowing what they had to go through to become a couple. Thankfully the weather was perfect and the day could not have been better.
The wedding was picked up recently by EQL Wedding Magazine and then today featured in a Royal Gazette Article. This is very timely as same-sex marriage is being very heavily debated in Bermuda right now. My hope is that in featuring this wedding, it will be one more small step towards change.
