You Mean The World To Me

We have something a little different to share with you today, in the form of an anniversary shoot. Caroline from BlueCicada Photography sent us these romantic images which capture the essence of a wonderful couple – her mum and stepdad – on a recent visit to the world-class resort of Pangkor Laut in Malaysia. 

 

Caroline grew up in the stunning, scenic region of Provence in France, which is where her mum and stepdad still live. We asked the happy couple for some words of wisdom to inspire us all and to give some insight into what makes a successful relationship. Their lovely story is one of being a team and ultimately working together to make each day and each other cheerful.

 

PS – Be prepared to turn into a bit of a green-eyed monster; this holiday destination is lush and then some!

Caroline says:

“Lydie is my mum and Christian is my stepdad. They came to visit us in August, for their first time in Malaysia. They were celebrating their sixth year of married bliss so I thought I would offer them a trip to the very lush and very exclusive island of Pangkor Laut and a photo shoot so they could take home beautiful photographs of a trip of a lifetime. Pangkor Laut is definitely the resort you want to get married at or spend your honeymoon if you ever think about Northern Malaysia for your big day. You will want to spend an entire day at their Spa Village, and I hope you also book the hill villa where you will enjoy a bath under the stars!”

“We met on a games’s day that was organised by an association that was set up in our neighbourhood. During a few years, we were friends and we enjoyed this friendship, as we were meeting and organising parties and trips with our common friends. We liked to talk a lot together and found out we had a lot of common interests such as travelling, investing ourselves in an association, mountain biking and dancing; mostly rock and roll (the 60’s and 70’s version) where we got on even better. Life events happened ( we both got divorced from our respective partners) which got us much closer evidently and love feelings came very naturally.”

“We are definitely chalk and cheese but we laugh about it when these moments occur. We try not to take each other and ourselves too seriously.”

“Our wedding day was simple, a beautiful August day in Provence, in our home, surrounded by our closest family members: our parents and our children. We keep beautifully memories of this wonderful day.”

“Our best memories together are quite a lot: the little things in everyday life, our dancing sessions, our date nights, the small and bigger trips, all the discoveries that we have made together, our nearly daily trips in our boat, sometimes for several days, sometimes for a small fishing trip. All of that and to add obviously all the family moments, the weddings, the births, and the joyful moments spent with our grandchildren.”

“We don’t believe that there are any miracle recipes for a successful marriage. We didn’t ‘succeed’ in our previous marriage, but maybe we have learnt how to manage certain situations better from that past experience. However we also believe that we need to respect our differences, accept each others activities or hobbies might be different, whilst making time to do the things we both like together and intimate moments. In our case, we have to be able to always consider that there was a life before us, and live with that with no bad feelings about it. It’s been 13 years now and time has flown!”
