Chris and Vanessa

This couple are from very different countries, but ‘clicked’ over their love of travel, adventure, humour and of course, love.

Vanessa, an amazing geneticist and researcher and Chris, a gifted photographer met when Chris was photographing Vanessa for a medical magazine. Both wanted a more interesting story, so went searching for Tasmanian Devils. Their partnership grew from there.

Chris proposed in the Kalahari Desert (which holds a special place in Vanessa’s heart as she was born in South Africa and has done a lot of research in this region) and the ring was nearly lost in the campfire, Vanessa was so shocked at the time…..but of course, said yes.
