Perfectly Loved || The Perrys

Today I start with a throwback! I Met Purity back in november 2010 while she was still a student at Kenyatta University. I was still starting my photography journey and I happened to give her and a few of her colleagues a lift from KU to Mt Longonot where they were going to camp and hike for a few days. What marks this day in our memories is that right after turning off the Mai Mahiu – Naivasha Highway, my old vw bus ‘Joyce’ hit a dust pit while doing about 80kph and reeled out of control for about 2 minutes within which Purity and her friends were thoroughly mixed with the heavy camping cargo inside Joyce. Lives flashed and lights were seen at the “end of the tunnel” but mercifully I regained control and gave back the wheel to Jesus for the rest of the trip

you can see the dust on their faces and hair… anyway She’s such a sweet soul and we became good friends from there and was delighted to have the privilege cover her beautiful wedding.

The following is hers and Christopher’s  very own story:

I met Christopher on November 27th 2015. We were working in the same office and on this day, community service brought us together. With help of my friends in the office, I had for a month planned for the mission wide staff away day and community service. I was my usual cheery self, selling raffles for the charities we were supporting that year. The idea of the away day was to help us interact better within the mission allowing us to meet people we normally would not see at the office. I sat next to Christopher on the bus and he became one of my victims. He had to buy raffles you know! I really hoped he wasn’t one of those snobbish guys and I wouldn’t have to move seats.

We got to the high commissioners home to pick up some of our colleagues and since I was petite my colleagues suggested I could squeeze with the guys seated at the back. I remember telling them they were blocking me from my destiny man and we all laughed about it. We got to the charity and went into our different duty groups soon after the introductions. The girls were rescued from abuse by family and friends. I couldn’t listen to all of their stories as it greatly broke my heart.

After the charity work we later assembled at the high commissioners residence for team building. It is here that we reconnected with Mr Perry. We spoke about food. I love cooking and apparently he too loves cooking. I thought he was just making conversation and like some of his colleagues he would soon pass me by the office corridors like we never met; and if I made an attempt to greet him would make me look extremely ridiculous. I mentioned I could teach him how to make some local Kenyan dishes and maybe he could teach me some Lebanese dishes as he is well travelled. He agreed and we even said we could do dinner some time.

 

At the end of the team building he won virtually on every raffle I sold him. He was kind enough to share some of his winnings with me. I went back to the office on Friday and I could bet on my life I will never hear from him. The weekend passed and I was sure of my prediction. On Monday morning while I was going through my emails to plan my days’ work an email popped in. A recipe from Mr Perry. I was pleasantly surprised but also a bit confused. I used to bake cupcakes as a side hustle back then. I had a couple extra cupcakes and I offered him some. He asked me out for dinner and I couldn’t confirm because it seemed like a dream. We had a date that Saturday; I was thirty minutes late and I haven’t heard the last of it. I made him dinner in return. He saw a wife in me even before I could see a boyfriend in him. He invited me for Christmas in Glasgow but due to Visa logistics I couldn’t make it. He asked me to be his girlfriend but I said no as I was on my last month of a one year break I had given myself from romantic relationships. When he came back in January we started dating and the rest is history.

Today I marry my friend. If a man loves you he will commit from the first day. He will choose you every day and will make it known to the people that matter. From today onwards I choose you as you chose me over two years ago. I hold your hand today agreeing to walk in love, faith and hope with you as we build a family for Christ.

This was one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever covered and everything was so easy despite the diverse differences in culture, everything came together perfectly to speak one language of Love…. please enjoy some of the images captured by the waruisapix team
