Yay for wedding days that begin in a childhood home (and end happily exhausted on a dance floor). I had the pleasure of spending the whole day with M & S, starting at M’s family in the home she grew up in. Like the whole day, every little touch felt relevant and special.
I was a tad obsessed with the children (and grandparents!) from the moment I saw them at the ceremony. They (and the guests at large) looked like they had been hand picked from a perfection agency to come and dance and play and spread their amazing happiness. M & S managed to bring two massive families together and make everyone feel like an equally involved part of the day.
Once we got to the reception, I was able to fully appreciate M & S’s insistence on skipping solo photos entirely to be with the guests and join the party. I especially understood once the dance floor opened and a few hundred people danced the night away with electric love.
I had a smile on my face for a few hours the next morning while looking through the photos and seeing the expressions on everyone’s faces, the sway in their hips and the love in the air. It was once again, a reminder of why I love being a photographer, and why weddings are for me.
Congratulations M & S!
