A wedding that's a cut above

March 26, 2013  •  6 Comments

I wanted to share a wedding shoot that I did in 2012. It's coming up to their first anniversary and every time I catch up with the bride we always talk about it.

Emma is my hair dresser, and she's wonderful. She's married to a lovely man called Toby and their wedding day was just amazing.

Even thought I had technically hung up my camera for weddings, when I got asked to do this wedding I just couldn't refuse. Here is a collection of images taken from the day. It shows the beginning, middle and end of the day, but even now I look back on these images and smile, reliving the joy of the day and the love that was everywhere for this couple.

It was a true privilege and honour and I'm so glad to did this wedding x

 

I've broken the photos into three parts, the Bridal Prep, The Wedding and The party, this is Pt 1

Agree with Alex, you need to get back in the game Babs, your eye for the image is second to none, your detail shots are beautiful and you have a real way of putting people at their ease, it shows in the pictures and you get such stunning results when all these combinations of talent come together!
