If there is one thing that is awesome about this job it is getting to be as close as close can be to two people on the biggest day of their lives – if not the biggest then surely one of the most important. I totally get that some folk are a little bit more of a closed book than others and therefore keep their feelings guarded or don’t want to lose face – but I love it when my couples let their guard down and just be who they are, especially when it comes to the more intimate part of the day, when it just the two of them and me. With Meadhbh and John I could not have had two more open and honest people standing in front of me. When I have that very short period of time with my couples I talk to them, ask them about themselves and each other to get them to relax a little, but more importantly I listen, and let them listen to each other and let them open up. Never have I heard two people be more open to that idea and each other than with Meadhbh and John. There was no shyness, no awkwardness and certainly no holding back. Wedding days go by so incredibly fast, no more so than for the bride and groom. So I always tell people to relish that time you have alone and to soak up every part of it, talk to each other, say what you want to say because very soon you’ll be waking up and wondering just where on earth the day went.
Meadhbh and John you guys are as good as they come. I loved my day with you and your families at the Spanish Point in Kinsale. Where has the time gone?
