When Katrina first got in touch with me I quickly got a sense that nostalgia was important to her. She wanted pictures that really captured the moments of her day and more than that she wanted to feel something when she looked at those pictures. I knew exactly what she meant. She spoke about a picture from her grandparents wedding and how relevant it still was because they’d been caught off guard and they were just “in the moment”. That natural relaxed storytelling of emotion is a way to ensure that your pictures weather every fashionable storm and endure, and hopefully evoke empathy through the years to come. Katrina had literally taken nostalgia and spread it throughout her day, from the teacups, to the table cloths everything had been carefully chosen and arranged with love and this radiated through their day. People had brought cakes, custom made hairslides, written thoughtful notes, hung reems of bunting, sung songs… everywhere you looked friends and family were adding their little stamps of love on the day. These are my favourite kinds of wedding. The ones where everyone cares so much they put in, where you feel like you’ve walked into a room full of people that all know each other and you know everyone too. It was a warm day in all senses.
