Old Romantic...


Having just completed a two day workshop on looking at the business behind wedding photography, it got me thinking about why I want to be a wedding photographer.

I suppose it all started, like most girls, when I was little.. my Sindy doll had a gorgeous wedding dress so she was perfect to play weddings with. I remember watching Prince Charles and Lady Di getting married when I was 7 – the same age as my youngest daughter. My parents tv had broken down that morning so I had to go to my mums friends house to watch it. There was no way I was going to miss a princess getting married! 

As I got older I trained in Hospitality Management and worked with the Functions Manager at a very popular wedding venue in N.Ireland. To say I loved it would be an understatement. It gave me such a fantastic insight into the work that went on behind the scenes to make every bride and grooms day run as smoothly as possible.

I love all the care and attention that brides put into making their special day unique to them, whether that be the gorgeous dresses, flowers, event styling etc. There is such a huge choice out there. I am just glad its not me who has to make all those choices! 

But I am glad that I am the photographer of choice for all my brides and grooms who have booked me so far, including a few dates in 2015. That means that I get to capture all those little unique things that are special to the bride and groom. I get to capture all those little moments in time that might otherwise fade over time.

A wedding day is probably the most important day (except for the birth of children) and I feel so privileged that I have been invited to document them. I just need to make sure I pack the tissues as I know there will be a tear or two.

The workshop I attended last week just made me even more excited to be a wedding photographer! I leave you with some images from the workshop...
