Cecilia and Johny’s Wedding- Shaftesbury, Dorset
What a whirlwind 2021 was, a year of catching up for lost time, lost moments between family and loved ones, and so many couples finally being able to have the wedding day they had planned, it was my busiest year so far.
I set off early for the drive to Shaftesbury to meet Cecilia for prep, while my second photographer Emily went to meet Johny and the boys to capture them getting ready. The day was a quintessentially English summer wedding, with the most beautiful sunshine and country setting, from the village church to the marquee in the garden of the family home, it was perfect.
For a moment, forget being a photographer, as a human being just seeing Cecilia and Johny spending time with their loved ones was an amazing thing to witness, the pandemic has shown us just how quickly things can change, and we really should focus on the important things in life, like these celebrations of togetherness.
Cecilia and Johny it was a pleasure being part of the day, and so lovely getting to know you both over the last few years.
P.s On a slightly separate note, the biggest heartfelt thank you goes out to my second shooter Emily from Emily Jayne Weddings. Driving nearly 2 hours just to help me out was off the scale kind. One thing to come out of 2021 is the new relationships I have formed with other wedding suppliers and fellow creatives, it’s very reassuring to know we are all here for each other, to work hard and rebuild the industry we all so dearly love.
