It’s not until I come to write a blog post that I remember I meet my couples in some weird and wonderful circumstances. Steph and I met at a very bad wedding fayre. When I say very bad, I mean roughly about 5 couples came to it.
I was obviously there about photography and Steph was there selling her amazing cakes. It’s very silly putting me by a cake stand, especially when there are no couples to speak to, so naturally, I went to speak to Steph.
Forget how good her cake was a minute, Steph and I got on very well and had a giggle throughout the day. Fast forward a couple of years and I get an email…..
“I’m sure you won’t remember me, I fell in love with your photography at a wedding fayre, and have kept hold of your details since then for the day I may need them for myself. That day has finally come as I got engaged this weekend! So after we told the world and his dog, one of the first things I wanted to do was get in touch with you.”
Of course I remembered her
cake!! I want to tell you how much emails like the above mean to us suppliers. They mean the World! To think that Steph had kept my details until it was her turn to be a Bride made me well up and I couldn’t wait to reply and hear about their plans.
At the time of Steph and Ben getting in touch, they didn’t even have a venue booked, so it was lovely to be able to hear about their journey right from the very start. They picked Bordesley Park wedding venue in Worcestershire and I was excited to go there myself, having never been there.
Meeting up with Steph beforehand I asked “what is your colour theme?” Steph’s reply was “every colour!” Yay!!
Upon entering the marquee, the first thing to hit me was the pompoms all around the edge. Steph’s Mum had apparently spent hours on these and they really did make the room.
The day was as relaxed as I imagined it would be and I will now leave you with the pictures. I hope you enjoy looking through them as much as I loved capturing them.
Thank you for remembering me Steph and thank you for now being someone I call a friend x
