Debora & Mauro are from Brazil and they traveled to Moorea in July to renew their wedding vows: 10 years of marriage, 13 years of love, and 27 years of knowing each other.
So many people look for the love of their life and some will never find it, but I found my love the very first time I met Debora in Portugal, 27 years ago. She is part of my soul and I cannot imagine a life without her love.
Debora and Mauro traveled with their 11-year old son, Phillipe, Mauro’s mum Heidi and 3 friends.
Debora & Mauro first met 27 years ago in Portugal… Debora recalls feeling breathless as Mauro looked straight in her eyes but without saying a word to her… she was such a beautiful and lovely girl Mauro said; he felt kind of in shock and unable to speak!
Life went on and these two only met again a few years later; it was magic and they totally fell in love with each other then.
But as life sometimes has it, they parted ways and as the years and their own life trials have unfolded, Mauro recognized that inside his heart, “His Debora” was always there.
So when he moved to London 13 years ago, he took the plunge & reached out to Debora… it was a dream coming true!
It was the time.
When the gate doors opened and Debora saw Mauro smiling at her, she knew, they knew that a forever would be a forever with one another.
They celebrated 10 years of marriage but so many more of love, with a heartfelt ceremony on a beach in Moorea.
During the ceremony, in addition to exchanging vows and a beautiful ring for Debora, Mauro gifted a lovely necklace to her.
Also a couple of beloved friends who could not attend the ceremony in Moorea recorded a wedding song for them, played it on a piano and sang for them, so I uploaded it to my tablet and played it before they read their vows, so beautiful!
It was a very moving ceremony for 2 people I am so honored to have met; it always feels so wonderful to take part in such special moments!
