My best friends wedding

November 19, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

As I stood outside Faithlegg with my best friend on Friday evening I looked at her and realised, all of sudden she is so much more than my best friend.  In our day to day lives we get so comfortable with how things are that everything gets stored in this neat little box and we leave little room for change.  All of a sudden I was looking at a bride.  With our busy lives we are always crossing paths, swapping kids, running in from or out to work that we rarely get time to socialise or celebrate anything.  Add to that Ruth's crazy busy years recently with college work and 3 kids on top we are often stressed out messes just trying to get things sorted.  Now, all of a sudden I was looking at a bride who was so excited about marrying her closest friend and unifying their family at last, it kind of blew me away, she looked glowing.

On the day of the wedding I was in strict work mode from early on, I must admit that kind of whimpered away whilst I was photographing the girls walk down the aisle.  It wasn't until Ruth took her first steps, in Jason's arm, that I realised, having begged her to use A Thousand Years for her song and her refusing that in actual fact, this is the song she chose.  The tears flowed so much that I worried about those images.

During the ceremony there were times that I had to remind myself to photograph as I was so in the moment, enjoying watching their laughs and giggles, clasping each others hands full of excitement.  Baldy was so excited at times he didn't know where to look, gobsmacked at how amazing Ruth looked he kept glancing over at me as if to say, check her out.

I am finding it so hard to write a love story about Ruth and Baldy as to me they are so much more than just the experience of the day, they are part of my life, even now as I write this with Janine (their eldest) looking over my shoulder.  There are no words I can use to describe how happy this day made me so instead I will leave you with part of my letter for Ruth on their wedding day.  I love you both so very much and I am so happy to finally be able to share your images xxxx

I want to let you in on how your life is going to change after today, and change it will.  Tomorrow you will be Mrs. Guy, you will wake up a married woman with a best friend as your husband (Baldy obviously, not me).  Ok so life goes on and things still need to be done but in every moment you will remember, he is your husband.  Not just that, he is your forever.  Although we continue on with the way things were, once married we do it with the assurance that yes, we have someone that wants us forever, when we are low or grumpy or sick, they have seen it all and still love us.  So from today on you have your forever and this is the best change you can wish for, it’s not the piece of paper, it’s not the day spent with us that matters, it’s the fact that in that moment, later today, you will both say I do.   I am so happy that this will be in front of your kids and your guests.  You will confirm to each other that this is forever. FOREVER Ruth, FOREVER!

So on this day, the beginning of the rest of your life, I love you, I thank you and I can’t wait to see you through my lens, finally, on this, your beautiful and perfect wedding day.

Here is to the rest of your life

Xxxx
