'Love is a temporary madness, it erupts like volcanoes and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your root was so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. that is just being in love, which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Those that truly love have roots that grow towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms have fallen from their branches, they find that they are one tree and not two.'
I love the anticipation and excitement on the morning of a wedding. That scared but excited feeling you get before riding a roller coaster, except this will be the best ride of your life. A veritable emotional wave of joy and happiness, with all you know and love there by your side celebrating with you.
Those little tiny details tell so much about the design of a couples big day, from the flowers, to the decor, a touch, a hand or even a fleeting glance, its the bones of a love story and the glue of a great wedding photography collection. When it comes to the details, the more the better. I never like to miss a trick.
Moments fly by in a heartbeat and being there and having the privilege of sharing these incredible days with my couples is an absolute joy and an honour. It fills my heart being able to capture these special moments and freezing them forever in time. Its a legacy im so incredibly proud of.
Through the nerves, fluffing the vows, smiling, overcome with emotion and exchanging wedding rings. Promising to love someone for the rest of your life is no mean feat. When there is no doubt in your mind that this person stood in front of you is your soul mate. There's no better feeling in this world.
The moment all grooms, best men and father/mother of the bride dread most. Most of the weddings we photograph have their speeches first. That way the speakers can relax and really enjoy their meal the way they should. Plus everything is so much funnier when you arent in a food coma.
When the food is gone and the lights are low, out comes the DJ & the band and people revive those dancing feet and hit the floor. I love seeing the dance floor full and everyone strutting their best moves. Its when everyone is totally at ease in front of the camera and ready to get the party started.
