Unions Of Love
MY PHILOSOPHY OF CELEBRATING THE CONNECTION AND RITUAL OF LOVE.

“You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”
- R. Buckminster Fuller

I’ve never really believed in weddings, in the traditional sense. Crazy right? Being a wedding photographer and all!
They have just never felt like a true expression of individuality, but rather an industry and culturally influenced necessity that doesn’t quite fit everyone.

So I created Unions Of Love; an idea and a philosophy on doing things differently and creating something very unique and special to each individual. To celebrate ANY two people, to NO exclusions, coming together to form a conscious whole union. No stress, no awkward traditions, no expectations and no unnecessary clutter. Simplicity expressing modern love.

 

CONNECTED. INTENTIONAL. MAGIC.
THE (R)EVOLUTION OF WEDDINGS

"There's a shift happening in humanity, a shift in consciousness, happening now because it has to happen now." - Eckhart Tolle

Unplugged weddings, same-sex, elopements, minimalist, ethical, and Unions Of Love.

Celebrate a Union Of Love any way you choose. But to experience something extra-ordinary, we must first break out of the ordinary, make our own path, speak our hearts and create an experience that is beyond decor, clutter and unconscious consumerism. We must be present, open, and connected – to ourselves and to those we love. At the heart of a Union Of Love are 3 guiding principles…

 

THE 3 GUIDING PRINCIPLES
To Create A Union Of Love

"We felt so blessed to stand in amongst our 'circle of love' and be surrounded by people who mean so much in our lives. That's what a wedding really should be about - love!" - Marine + Campbell

 A Union Of Love is not the joining of ‘two-halves’ that make a whole, but rather two-whole beings coming together to create a third entity – The Union. A shared metaphysical sacred space unique only to the two beings in it. Here are the 3 guiding principles.

  • CONNECTED
    01. CONNECTED

    CONNECTED

    To be present for ourselves is to be at one with our heart, ego and soul. Aware of our surroundings, our energy, our breath, and our connection to ourselves and others. To be the best version of ourselves first and then to share that fullness with another.

  • INTENTIONAL
    02. INTENTIONAL

    INTENTIONAL

    Our intentions are pure and loving, to truly desire the best for one another through openness and honesty. Intention is concentrated energy and conscious meaning, planting a seed that lives through our rough patches, the life of our relationships, and beyond life itself.

  • MAGICAL
    03. MAGICAL

    Magic is the ecstasy we feel in inspiring places, with loving people and having incredible experiences. The kind of experiences that last a lifetime, of depth, intimacy, vulnerability, and connection. Magic is the crazy love and tingle, and that which lights our souls on fire. It really is the essence of a Union Of Love.
