This time last year, if someone had told me I’d be THE photographer at a wedding, I’d have quite literally laughed in their face. Me? Pfft. I don’t think so. Just the thought of the responsibility of capturing those memories would have had me break out in to a cold sweat! That and the fact I had no faith in my own ability whatsoever. Weddings should be left to the pros. Fact. However, fast forward 9 months and I only went and did it! I only went and accepted my first wedding gig. I still can’t quite believe it. I still can’t quite believe someone even asked me, someone actually wanted me to take their very special photos. That and the fact I actually had the balls to say yes. Who is this Sally and what have you done with the old one?? But boy am I glad I accepted. Despite my fears and Pru telling me that I was *probably* going to miss every important shot, that all of my photos would *probably* be out of focus, and that I would *probably* cry, I only went and blummin’ did it. And I loved it. Every. Single. Scary minute. And guess what? I captured those important bits. With bells on. And they were in focus (mostly!). I obvs cried (standard!), but for all the right reasons. Because I realised that I could do it after all even if I know I still have a long way to go. So take that, Pru!
But enough about me. This post is about sharing Rob and Sarah’s special day with you all. A festival themed wedding planned to perfection in a matter of months. Every last detail was thoughtfully put together: Sarah’s school children’s wellies acting as vases for the flowers on the tables and around the marquee; the photo booth in the form of the couple’s campervan; the 2 sets of family stepladders displaying memories and photos of special people; and the bunting and table runners made by hand from Rob’s late Grandfather’s textile pattern books, to name just a few. Every last detail was just fab. And, as if it couldn’t get any better, an afternoon tea, a hog roast and an ice-cream van. ‘Nuff said! So congratulations, Rob and Sarah. Thank you so much for having faith in me and inviting me to be part of your day. It was such a special day and one I will never, ever forget xx
