A wedding should be about love and commitment, the fact that friends and family want to share that makes the day even more special. When friends and family go that extra mile and rally together, a special day turns into an extraordinary day.
Second shooting for the amazing Debs Ivelja, I got to witness such a day.
After a drive from London to Buckinghamshire to photograph the bride getting ready, the snow started to fall. This wasn’t just any sprinkling of snow, its seemed the heavens opened and covered the entire Buckinghamshire countryside is a beautiful blanket of white. Kate, kept her cool as key elements in the day began to get cancelled and it became clear that although the snow was playing havoc with her wedding day, there was no way it was going to stop her getting married.
When we arrived at Hedsor House, it looked like the snow had gotten the better of the guests travelling to the church and with fear of the guests getting stranded, the decision was made to cut the day short and just have the ceremony. As we waited in the church the special day started to turn into an extraordinary day as more and more guests arrived. The ceremony went ahead, a little later than planned, in the beautiful church surrounded by friends and family. It was a truly magical moment when the bride and groom said I do. Everyone had battled through terrible conditions to see that very special moment and I felt honoured to be there to witness it.
I wanted to thank Debs for the opportunity to shoot alongside her, It was great watching that girl work her magic at the wedding.
