Catherine and Tom in Lyme Regis, Devon.

This is a big one. Seriously. Make sure you have a drink handy, even some snacks if you’re that way inclined. This is one of these blogs where I just couldn’t help myself and where I think being a documentary wedding photographer comes to the fore.

When Catherine first got in touch and told me about her day, there wasn’t going to be a whole lot that was going to get in my way from being there. She told me that the wedding would take place at Tom’s parent’s house, near Lyme Regis, a lovely seaside town on the Jurassic Coast in Devon. Sounds amazing I thought. And then she threw in the fact that they had a little miniature Schnauzer called Bowie. That was it. That was all I needed. So we traded dog pics and added the date to my calendar. I could not wait for this.

I remember driving up to the house in the morning and as I made my way down their driveway, which resembled more of a country lane that twisted and turned and made its way over rolling hills, I thought to myself. Aren’t I lucky? This is ridiculous. As I parked up, Tom approached my car with a huge beaming smile that I’d soon become very accustomed to, reached into the car to shake my hand and thanked me for being there. How could I miss this was my reply and how right I was. This day was unreal.

I’ll honestly let the pictures do the talking on this one because this is a serious scroller but I need to just cover a few things. I was given one of the most lovely welcomes by both Catherine and Tom, their lovely parents, their extended families and way-too-cool-for-me friends. I was given the instruction early in the day to help myself to the kitchen, treat the house like it’s my own and to go wherever I want. Shooting a wedding with complete freedom is a wonderful thing and as I photographed this day I remember just feeling so grateful. Weddings like this don’t come around very often so I was going to savour every single moment of it.

Needless to say, as you’ll see from the photographs, this was a beautiful day. Catherine and Tom make one incredible couple. Beautiful people on the outside but I got a glimpse as to who they are on the inside and what they are like as a couple and I can say that they are the kind of people who I could easily be friends with. Big laughs, big smiles, fun loving, dog lovers, family people and hug you like they want to cut your blood supply. My kind of people.

Catherine and Tom. Thank you.
