Jordan has always been a country of rich and biblical heritage. It is a proud reminder of times of glorious civilisation and culture at one of the most history fuelled locations on Earth.
It is also a country with the lowest point on the Earth, the Dead Sea.
Not only this area harbours microbial life that scientists have a great interest for, but the Dead sea is a haven for healing and rejuvenating.
With a higher atmospheric pressure, low allergen count, and slightly higher oxygen content than at sea level, the Dead Sea is literally a breath of fresh air - I think I never photographed a wedding more refreshed and relaxed.
I can’t express how grateful I still feel to have had spent 5 days exploring Jordan with this beautiful couple, capturing their moments of joy while strolling streets of Amman, and sharing the happiness throughout Petra and Wadi Rum, all wrapped up in a loving wedding overlooking this intriguing lake.
But what I am mostly thankful to is the lesson this couple reminded me of.
They showed me the beauty of basic love where one does not search what it can gain or take away, but urges to build and give away unconditionally.
All the restless hearts are trying to find a way home, a place under the sun, a circle to be accepted in and, along the way, to realise the essential reason for their existence. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I meet people on a daily basis with all their diversity of thoughts. This couple reminds me that the purpose of it all lies in one place, one person and one soul that sums it up with pure simplicity.
