The love story opens with a wide-angle perspective of the couple standing on the peak of a hill, juxtaposed by a placid lake and surrounded by more rolling hills. It sets the stage for an album that can best be described as raw, indie and soulful.

In subsequent shots, a stroll – hand-in-hand – along a wooden bridge, a scenic drive along a winding cliff, enjoying the fresh ocean breeze at a harbour, casual shots on a residential lawn, and tender moments together collectively help the beholder to envision the pleasures in which they take joy.

The bride-to-be is ravishing, whether in her bridal gown or an earth-tone evening dress or a casual jumper. Though we can only imagine the planning and coordination it took, the wardrobe changes are thoroughly enjoyable and the effort certainly paid off. In every scene, the couple are a beautiful picture of tranquillity and thankfulness for each other’s commitment to a lifetime together.
