Erin & Lorcan | 09.07.2022
I am not sure where to begin with this one! I'm still undone. It's a day that will stay with me for the rest of my life. Their beautiful love was reflected in their day from start to finish. The love they share for one another is something that isn't witnessed often. It's not about feelings. It's a love that goes beyond that. James and I feel incredibly honoured to have been there to photograph their wedding. But more importantly, getting to know them and their loved ones is what made it all even more unique and special.
The stunning and intimate venue they chose was out of this world! Packed with the most incredible history, it is also so romantically quirky. I fell in love with The Pilgrims Rest and hope with all my heart to go back there again to photograph another story.
The preparation is such an amazing part of the day to photograph. I am always delighted when couples include it to be photographed because their day goes by so quickly... you just don't remember a lot of those details. Yet, through the photographs, you get to re-live and notice everything from the beginning to the end.
Erin's professional makeup artist is the real deal. If you're looking for an MUA, Emma Lily is your girl. I couldn't stop being in awe of her work as I photographed her doing Erin's makeup. Honestly, I cannot recommend her enough!
Flowers were done by: Stephanie Willoughby who is an Award winning Sussex Master Florist. Her work has been published in VOGUE. That says it all.
Her beautiful hair were all done by the very talented Vicki Mckinstry.
THE COUPLE SESSION
This is a very important time of the day that I always beg my couples to give me plenty of time for. I do know that it's not always possible and I do try to work as fast as possible on the day BUT those photographs are those that you will most certainly print and come back to time and time again.
My heart burst when Erin and Lorcan chose their wedding package that includes film photography. My love and journey with photography began with film at the young age of 6, so film is very close to my heart. Digital is incredible. It enables us to photograph the ENTIRE day and document like never before. BUT, film is so so so unique. The depth and the grain is unlike anything else. Having it film photography included as a part of your set is something that you will never regret.
Play a game with me and try to guess which photographs are film and which digital.... what do you think?
