Abbie & Ross's Wedding Story
The story starts when I received an email headed “Blast from the past!” back in August 2016. The beginning of the email read “Hi Dale, I hope you are well. I can’t believe it’s been 20+ years since leaving the Secondary School very scary”. I read on and looked at the email address of the sender; it was none other than an old school friend! Now, I like most people aged a certain age (nearly 40) still keep in contact with a few school friends via social networking, or by other means, but I hadn’t spoken to Ross for 20 years. The email continued by saying that they loved the look of my photos as they were non-intrusive and this was the style they were after for their wedding photos which was booked for August 2017.
The months flew by and before we knew it, Abbie and Ross’s wedding day was here. I have shot a lot of weddings and been to numerous venues; however Butley Priory in Suffolk is now up there with one of my favourite places. This place is simply STUNNING! Abbie and Ross had decided to have a very relaxed wedding, with their nearest and dearest being there. During the ceremony and throughout the day, it was filled with tears, laughter and more tears, then more laughter! Abbie and Ross were happy for me to capture some natural moments along with staging a few moments to fit the look of their day. What followed was my photography brain going into over drive, and going around capturing some simply stunning moments. It’s a real credit to the friends and family at wedding days as they add so much to it. Abbie’s friends were a real joy, especially when it came to “twirling!”
Editing the photos was a pure joy and I constantly had a smile on my face on how they came out. This was one of my favorite weddings I have captured.
