The year certainly is flying and the question on everyones lips is, are we going to have warm dry summer? because at the minute it really is, like a pick and mix, we don’t know what the weather will be in the next hour let alone the next day or week, anyway i digress with my weather report! I find myself driving down the road to Hothorpe Hall, Theddingworth, Leicestershire. for the wedding of Kirsty & James, As I have mentioned before, I’m always moving forward and developing as a wedding photographer, & after viewing this weddings edited files, I feel a little burst of pride to see the emotions and relationships I have captured for Kirsty & James, or as my wife would say, I’m blowing my own little trumpet! I don’t think this is the case, I’m very aware of the difference between pride and being full of myself! I do feel as time goes on I’m discovering that I’m instinctively capturing emotions and relationships, where as in the past, I looked at my peers images and thought I wish I could be that photographer. One relationship that really hit me was between Kirsty and her dad, Her Dad is a lovely man, that really went out of his way to make me feel welcome and said some really nice things to me as I was leaving. After her first dance with her handsome groom James, she shared her second dance with her father, as I glanced around the room, it was impossible not to feel the emotion comings from the wedding guests as tissues were at the ready! Hothorpe Hall gave us a fantastic venue, with lovely staff, Kirsty & James brought a loving wedding party, with annoyingly good looks! I could not really fail!
