Let me be real for a second, a huge amount of the couples who choose to work with me are referral based. Meaning, I photographed their friends wedding, their sister’s wedding etc. Cool right? Right. Now, this Britannia Yacht Club wedding was a referral too, but it was a unique referral that I’m so honoured to have received. You see, two years ago, I had the pleasure of photographing Serena’s daughter’s wedding in Kingston. Have a peek here, it was a gooder as well! It’s not often that a daughter refers her Mom to her wedding photographer and I’m really happy to say that it has been such a pleasure to witness and document these two weddings. Heart on your sleeve, down to earth, really damn good genuine people. That’s how I’d define her daughter Jessica along with her husband Eric and I’d use the exact same words to describe Serena and Malcolm.
It’s a pretty cool story to how we got here, but wait, there’s more! You know how no one wants rain on their wedding day? Well, on my drive to the Britannia Yacht Club, it rained harder than I have ever seen. Dang it. But, no worries, we always pull it off no matter what! In the end, it stopped raining right before the ceremony began, clouded over nicely for easy light during the ceremony and then the clouds just got crazy afterwards, opening up pockets of extra special, awe inspiring light. Yay for rainy wedding days! Light like this never happens on clear blue sky days. Those days are great for other reasons, but a little emotional turmoil on account of weather often rewards couples with some pretty epic photos like the first one in this set.
So, with a small gathering of their family members, a few friends and lively co-workers we all enjoyed a nice meal, some touching speeches and a wild dance floor. No seriously, these people can move! Enjoy scrolling through this one, it holds a special place in my heart.
