Hello all. It’s been a little while, hasn’t it? I’m sure I don’t need to tell anyone what the last year and half has been like but let’s just say that getting the opportunity to photograph weddings has been somewhat of a scarcity.
It hasn’t been all bad though because the weddings that I have been lucky enough to shoot however have been nothing short of wonderful. These smaller weddings have offered something else that larger weddings can’t content with and that is a certain intimacy and an ability for the couple to really be able to interact and mingle with everyone on a very personal level. There’s also been somewhat of a calm over everything. A quietness that is usually not a very common thing at most weddings and it’s actually something that I try to ensure that every couple do their best have at some part of the day.
This wedding of Kate and Rory though, managed something that I found to be quite unique and that was to have a a very much party style atmosphere with a festival feel as well as the most mellow of moments scattered throughout the day. The speeches were a joy to behold and I for one will never forget Rory’s speech – there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. Mind you, I could probably dedicate an entire post to their expressions during the speeches with some of the childhood stories – Lets just say the one regarding Rory and his mum is something that will stay with me forever – and poor Rory might I add 🙂
I know I say this a lot, but only because it’s true, this day was an absolute honour to be part of. Rory and Kate are a pair of sweethearts who wear their hearts slap bang on their sleeves and I’m somewhat jealous that I’m not in the circle of friends because I cried with laugher on this day and let’s face it, we all need more tears of joy running down our face from time to time.
Kate and Rory – Thank you so much! What a day!
I promise that I’m going to start blogging far more – Who needs quick hits on Instagram when you can scroll endlessly through the good stuff.
It’s great to see you all again. Enjoy.
