Well, it’s about time I blogged a wedding isn’t it? We’re well into wedding season now, with May being one of our busiest months of the year, so I’ll have lots to share with you in the coming weeks. But for now, let’s go back to our first wedding of the year! We joined Rebecca and Ben in February for their wedding at The Coniston Hotel near Skipton.
We couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend our first wedding day of the year. Such a lovely couple to photograph and spend time with. It was a day filled with emotion (of the good kind!) and lots of love. With less than twenty people present, it was also a very intimate wedding. These are my absolute favourite, possibly because our own wedding was very small, too!
Although we were only with Rebecca and Ben for a few hours, it was filled with so many highlights. I loved eight year old Ruby’s reading at the ceremony. She had written it all by herself and my heart was in my throat as she talked about how ‘Daddy Ben’ made her mum so happy. Beautiful!
As you can imagine, it wasn’t the warmest of days in February, but Rebecca was an absolute trooper and still keen to have some photos taken down by the lake at The Coniston. This day only happens once and you can’t go back, so if photos are important to you, make sure you give us the time to work with you. We can only do as much as you’re willing to do, and thankfully, Rebecca and Ben were totally up for it! 🙂
I’ll leave you with Rebecca’s email to us, shortly after she and Ben had received their wedding photos. I think this is one of the loveliest reviews we’ve ever received, and it brought a tear to my eye when I read it. Messages like this are what make our jobs so worthwhile, and it was such an honour to be a part of Rebecca and Ben’s day.
“There are no words that can justify how grateful we are to you both for our beautiful wedding photographs. You have captured our day so perfectly and so naturally…we are beyond happy with the images! Ben and I both had tears in our eyes looking through our gallery!
Before I saw your images I was on a real downer about my appearance…I was questioning all the decisions I had made even down to my dress…your images have made me realise that there was no need to feel this way. You captured myself and my dress in such a beautiful way that I can never thank you enough for that! You gave me my sparkle back!
The amount of images you managed to take for us in such a short space of time was incredible and that is tantamount to your skills and professionalism.
Ben & I would not hesitate to recommend you to other couples planning their wedding, you made the whole experience completely stress free!
Lastly, the way the USB arrived packaged so beautifully was the absolute icing on the cake!
From the bottom of our hearts…thank you so so much.”
Thank YOU, Ben and Rebecca! We wish you all the happiness in the world for your future together!
