I’ve made it no secret that I love an outdoor wedding, but an outdoor wedding at home in the family garden is about the very best. Especially if that garden is the pride and joy of one of the couples’ parents. A wedding really does provide a reason for them to go that extra mile, indulge their passion and use all the fruits of their labour to decorate a marquee, create a beautiful home-grown bouquet and of course a backdrop for a ceremony.
This is going to sound very cliché I know but I felt that I really was on a journey with Katie and Jooles. And a very wonderful one it was too. All weddings are special but there was something about Katie and Jooles. Right from the get-go when I met them on a Facetime call, I just knew that this was going to be a very special occasion. We all got along famously but what I particularly loved was how important to them the actual ceremonial part of their day was.
Over the past few years I have met and worked alongside many wedding photographers. Extraordinarily in all the weddings I have done I’m yet to bump into the same photographer twice. I take my hat off to them. It is a deeply competitive business. Not only are there many of them but they also work incredibly hard.
When I met with Abbie and Luke to discuss the detail of their script it became very apparent that they both had an incredible bond with their mothers. Rarely are there occasions when one can publicly express one’s love and thanks to a parent, but a celebrant ceremony provides just that opportunity.
