Natalie & Manuel || Rarotonga, Cook Islands

About 7 hours from the shores of Australia, the little island of Rarotonga lies. This little tropical haven, in the heart of the Cook Islands, is where Natalie & Manuel decided to start their lives together as husband and wife.

They flew me over the day before the wedding where we enjoyed driving around the island, visiting all the local sites and drinking out of coconuts. It felt like a dream.

The next day was even more magical, from husking coconuts, to driving around in bridal tuk-tuks, to getting married on a sandy oasis before family and friends. You couldn't ask for a more beautiful celebration but I'll let the photos below tell the rest of the story. They're worth every second spent looking through them. Trust me.
