“WOW! Literally lost for words. In fact words can't even begin to describe how beautiful your photos are. You managed to capture so many details that we didn't even know were going on, or that we had forgotten had happened! They tell the story of the whole day, which for us absolutely flew by, so it was wonderful to then go back through them again and relive it in such vivid detail. Had a good cry at some of them too! You have definitely given us a long and difficult task to choose ones to put into an album thats for sure.
Can't thank you enough, you really captured the feel of the day, and especially some of the dancing ones later on in the night. I didn't know people had such moves!
Thanks again Ed, I'll be sure to recommend you literally anyone who will listen to me.”
If I was asked “what’s your idea of a great wedding to shoot?” I would probably answer the following…
A fun-filled day, spent with a couple that aren’t paranoid about every tiny detail being absolutely perfect. A couple that totally love each other, and aren’t afraid to show it. A couple that are relaxed and chilled enough to just enjoy every minute of the day, because they are having the wedding day THEY want. A couple that just want to have a fun day they can remember fondly, and know that all their friends and family had the best time possible! A couple that trust their photographer so much they just leave me to it… capturing the joy, the love, the laughs, the tears, and not to mention the fun on the dancefloor.
– That’s my idea of a great wedding, and that’s exactly what Sophie & Julien’s wedding day was. Being treated like one of the guests was an added bonus!
I’d prefer to let the photos tell the story, but here’s a brief outline of their day. Their sunny south of France wedding day was made up of two ceremonies. First was the legal ceremony at the nearby town hall in the morning, followed by a much less formal one at a beautiful setting under a tree, in Julien’s parents garden. They then chilled out with their guests, soaking up the sun in the garden, before partying into the early hours at the farmhouse barn.
One of the guests said something to me that I’ve been told before at a wedding – He said, “Every time I’ve seen your face come away from that camera you’ve been smiling… you must love your job”… and yes, I do, but I think it’s more that I’m smiling because I love seeing people genuinely really happy. Its much more that than the fact I’m enjoying myself. Infectious smiles… you can’t fake those, and if I’m there to capture them in a photo, even better!
