It’s funny – some weddings are really hard work and time heavy to edit (but not shoot – that’s always heaps of fun).
This one, however, just happened. It was incredible. The hard part, however, came when it was time to choose images for the blog. To be fair, I always find that a bit of a struggle. I love my work and the people I work with and so – not surprisingly – I get really rather emotionally attached to them all and excluding them is like looking a puppy in the eye and saying ‘No. No- you can’t have my cheese. And what’s more I’ll be taking my favourite jumper back. Go sleep in the garden, Stinky’ (fyi – Winnie – if you’re reading this, you can ALWAYS have my cheese. Love, Mummy x) *digression level four UNLOCKED*
I know I’m going to sound like a bit of a stuck record if I tell you that this wedding was a really rather unlike any other. It’s true, though. And it’s true of 99% of the weddings I shoot because I work with amazing people with imaginations to match. But just bear with me a moment.
Perdita is a stand-up comic. Rarely – if ever – have I heard eyeballs discussed so readily or fully in a bride’s speech.
She did the flowers herself. Her Mum made her dress and Adam’s Mum made the wedding cake. The whole family mucked in and just MADE the food happen. Hair. Make-up – yup – that was kept in the family, too.
And all the way through editing I was remembering that tiny tiny moment during the pre-wed shoot where Perdita legged it down the beach and Adam stood. Watched. Turned to me and said ‘my GOD I love her’. And then ran to her.
The perfect love story in all.
