Tim & Sakari – UWA Perth

I have a strong believe that most things happen for a reason and that our lives are planned ahead far beyond what we could imagine. The story of how we met Tim & Sakari as well as their love story is a resemblance of just this!

Let me start at the beginning. We moved from Brisbane to Perth just over a year ago. While we were searching for a rental house we fell in love with the north side of Perth. Beautiful gorgeous beaches and spectacular sunsets! Not long after we moved into the rental we decided to start searching for a property or block of land to purchase. This would be our first own home since our move from South Africa to AUS so we were all super excited and thrilled with this idea. We found the perfect block of land and started the design process with a local building company. Unfortunately this company had other ideas and at the end they pulled out of the contract. We were disappointed as this meant we would lose the block of land as well. We had to submit plans and so forth in a couple of weeks and there was no time left to find a new builder and have everything ready before this time. God plays a big roll in our lives and I strongly believe He answered our prayers … Satterley, the property development company who owns the land, decided to give us an extension for the purchase of this block of land, so this gave us time to find a new builder. Sakari & Tim made such an impression on a friend of ours when he first met them so when he heard about our search for a building company they were the people he referred us to. We phoned them, made an appointment to meet up with them … from the moment we met them we knew this couple is professional and have a passion for their work. We felt comfortable with them and knew they would have our best interest at heart. They have a passion for life and they aim to give their clients the best service possible. We clicked straight away. It was during one of our meetings with them that Tim asked about our wedding photography. Since I knew they were already married I thought he was only making some small talk 🙂 I showed him our website while Sakari and Deon was discussing house plans and Tim was in awe of our work. It was only then that he told me they were looking for a wedding photographer for their own wedding and at this stage, Sakari pretty much gave up on finding the perfect photographer for her day. We hit it off right from the start with this couple. We love their work ethic and we love their personalities so we felt at ease with them just as they did with us. It was a done deal, so they booked us.

Sakari is a born and bread beautiful Italian girl and Tim is a true blood Aussie. They both worked as a flight attendant for Emirates airways and met each other in Dubai for the first time at a pre-flight briefing for a flight between Dubai and Jakarta. Both of them lived in Dubai at that stage. Tim invited her for dinner at his place the next day and they have never been apart since.

From Dubai they moved back to Perth, but before they moved to Perth, they had a business trip to Vegas and they decided to get married in Vegas before returning to AUS. They wanted to have their family and friends share this special day with them so they knew they were going to have a proper wedding at some stage in the near future to celebrate with all of their family and friends. Her dad unfortunately passed away after their Vegas wedding and for a couple of years after his death Sakari did not feel the time right to celebrate their 2nd wedding day. Two years ago they went back to Italy for a visit and for the first time she felt the time right to go ahead and plan her wedding day to be shared with close friends and family.

They love Kings Park with its beautiful view over the city and Swan River and so they booked “Place of Reflection” for their ceremony. Their photo session took place at the beautiful grounds of UWA (University of Western Australia). They had a small intimate reception at Perth Royal Yacht club where they spend quality time with their guests who flew over from Italy, England, Ukraine, Lebanon, Brazil, Dubai and the East Coast of AUS.

I absolutely adore their wedding images. Both Tim & Sakari looked gorgeous … they could easily have stepped out of the fashion pages of Vogue! Their bridal party was made up of their best friends and family and even though some could not speak or understand English, they did an amazing job by following what we wanted them to do 🙂 I guess if someone was listening to this group they would have been intrigued with the 3 languages spoken throughout the photo session … since Deon and I are Afrikaans we would speak Afrikaans to each other, then speak English to the group to explain what we want and then Sakari would translate into Italian so that her sister and friend could understand what was expected of them 🙂

Apart from the limo driver arriving late which resulted in the wedding starting an hour late and Sakari’s beautiful 2nd dress giving her some zip trouble, they had an awesome intimate affair shared with all their loved ones. Tim’s raw emotion when he saw Sakari in her wedding dress walking down the isle, made me realise once again that love is so powerful and so exquisite and everyone in the world should experience true love!

Thanks Tim & Sakari for being such a great couple and for allowing us to be part of your special 2nd day!

Much love
