Love SessionSteve & LaurenBaviaanskloof, South Africa

We followed Lauren and Steve on an adventure through nature, from fern forests into a river gorge, naturally landscaped with wild lilies, rock pools and ancient ‘Narnian’ trees. (The next day Steve and Lauren renewed their vows in the breathtaking Baviaanskloof mountains – take a look!) 

“The world is a wide place where we stumble like children learning to walk. The world is a bright mosaic where we learn like children to see, where our little blurry eyes strive greedily to take in as much light and love and colour and detail as they can.

The world is a coaxing whisper when the wind lips the trees, when the sea licks the shore, when animals burrow into earth and people look up at the sympathetic stars.

The world is an admonishing roar when gales chase rainclouds over the plains and whip up ocean waves, when people crowd into cities or intrude into dazzling jungles.

What right have we to carry our desperate mouths up mountains or into deserts? Do we want to taste rock and sand or do we expect to make impossible poems from space and silence? The vastness at least reminds us how tiny we are, and how much we don’t yet understand. We are mere babes in the universe, all brothers and sisters in the nursery together.” – Jay Woodman, SPAN
