Meet Miatta + Daniel
For the last few days I have had the line “your house is my world” buzzing around inside my head and it got me to thinking about how the human heart is the powerhouse of our existence. We cultivate, nurture and give birth to a love that can be so immense from this home within us.
We have all loved and have been loved. The love from a mother to a child, the love of a brother to a sister and for those of us that are lucky, the love of one lover to another, likened to silk bows binding one soul to another. Sometimes these bows are visible and sometimes we just feel them in our limbs from the moment we encounter that one other person, the one whose palm fits perfectly within our own.
This is Miatta and Daniel.
Their worlds bumped into one another and their homes were never the same again, until their orbits became one. Their individual presence premeditated the head and home of the other, cultivating a connection that was nurtured over years until their bond was sealed in ties that were both visible and invisible.
Here are two people, who treat the sanctity of their union with utmost respect. They cherish the other for exactly who they are, embrace their individuality and created a world where humour and laughter is their healing shield. In Miatta’s own words, “To hone perfection in any craft takes focus, concentration and flexibility, and marriage is no different.” And that is what it is, right there. We all know of places our bodies and souls can roam, but those of us that love, we love in ways through the dark and through the light where we our traveled souls can rest. Our souls shrink and swell within the tides of our existence revealing the path to the one place we call home. Miatta and Daniel have a house within one another where their worlds become just one.
As promised, here are some “Day After” portraits from their wedding, which had a Steam Punk theme.
Much love to you two x
