After the hubbub known as Christmas and the New Year its often a time of catching up for a wedding photographer. You start to think about the downtime and eventually it gets to you. Can you simply drop back into the groove you had a few weeks ago? There’s no question you hope for something unique for your first of a new season. Something that will tickle your insides and make you feel right at ease. I feel rather lucky that this is exactly what I found when I arrived at The Elvetham last Friday. I knew when I met Hyun and Pete a while back that this would be a relaxed affair. Any wedding where the groom picks out the wedding dress is going to be special. I wasn’t left wanting. Hyun’s smile, Pete’s smile. The warmth of the room cancelled out all the cold outside. Simply put. I was in heaven. I’ve become a little of a seasoned veteran at ceremonies. I don’t really get emotional or nostalgic. But on Friday I did. I was sitting in the front row after shooting the signing of the register as the guests took theirs. I was watching Hyun and Pete and their guests crowded around with their cameras. I looked back to Hyun and Pete and I noticed her staring at Pete from all of 6 inches away. I was stuck by just how much she adored him. At that moment, nothing else mattered to her. The people, the cameras, the Registrars. Nothing. She was totally encapsulated in him. At that moment I was taken with emotion. It took me a minute or so to compose myself. Pete is a very lucky man. You will see the image I took just as it dawned on me later on. Also, there will be a link to more images on my Facebook Business Page. This will appear at the end of this post.
