I’ve never seen so many giggles at a wedding. Ever. I actually had to remove some of the laughing photos from this post out of fear that it might be laughter overload.
I’m always curious as to what can bring two people together, and throughout the course of the day it became clear that Deb and Sid both had such a child-like side to them, and they made each other (and myself) laugh. A lot. It was during our couple photos that this was particularly evident – we were upstairs in one of the beautiful rooms at Butleigh Wootton, and when they saw the romantic four-poster bed they excitedly jumped on it and asked if I could take a picture of them “playing dead”. Once we’d taken those pictures, they lay on their stomachs with their chins propped up, giggling like children.
It’s all you could ever wish for really…
I was so happy when Laura contacted me to arrange a couple shoot for herself and Phil, but I was absolutely jumping with excitement when Phil secretly emailed me and told me that he was so in love with Laura, and asked if he could propose during the shoot!
We had such a lovely morning walking around the Abbotsford Convent, and I was so nervous and excited when Phil gave me the signal about halfway through the shoot that he was about to propose. Laura’s reaction was so beautiful, and I feel so privileged to have been able to witness such a private moment.
A website is not a new thing for me – I have had a business website for two years, and blogging is not unfamiliar to me either- I have been a blogger for about ten years. So why does the reinvention of my website feel like I’m at the beginning of such an important, exciting journey?
When I told my partner I would be reinventing my website, he didn’t understand why I needed to change it. It was simple, elegant, and easy to use. But to me, it never felt personal enough. As a photographer, people welcome me into their lives and I become witness to some amazing moments. I feel the need to share stories with others, and I know this new website and blog is a much more fitting way to do that.
I look forward to spending many hours at my desk (undoubtedly with a coffee in one hand and my dog at my feet) whilst I share some beautiful stories with you..
