I selected these images some time ago. Looking through them after getting Ashley’s notes for the post I remembered I’d missed one.
Ashley & Dad obviously have a strong bond. You could hear it the word of his speech and in his voice.
So I’m ready for Dad to see Ashley in her dress and he won’t go close for holding back the tears. I get this shot:
But I hadn’t selected that image because its only when you look much closer at the photo that you see it:
More pixels won’t make a bad photo more interesting but they can make a good one great.
Ashley’s wedding notes:
Michael was due to be 30 on bank holiday Monday so we decided to have our wedding on the Sunday so that we could celebrate with all our family and friends and what a fab weekend we had. A lot of our family and friends stayed with us at The Mere the night before the wedding so we made a weekend of it although it was touch and go as to whether the wedding would go ahead as Michael works out at sea and got delayed. It was a very stressful run up to the wedding but he made it back the night before.
Michael left the majority of the wedding planning to me although he did chip in and make the invitations! I decided to go for a vintage theme for the wedding. Mine, the bridesmaids dresses and my mum’s outfit were from Blush in Uppermill who did a fab job. I absolutely loved my dress (I didn’t want to take it off) and the bridesmaids and mum looked stunning. The flowers were by the amazing Red Floral Architecture and Matt did a fab job of my bouquet, the bridesmaids’ flowers, all corsages and the room was gorgeously decorated by him. Hair & make up for myself and the bridesmaids was done by the lovely Heidi Chatterton.
I knew The Mere was the perfect venue as soon as I saw it. The grounds for pictures were beautiful and luckily the weather was nice on the day. A massive thank you to Andrew at Photoluminaire for our pictures, they are all amazing and so many of them, it’s so hard to choose.
I wouldn’t change anything about the day. Lots of brilliant memories from what was the best day of my life. We both enjoyed every second of our day and wish we could do it all again. Lots of tears (mainly from my dad) and laughs with all our family and friends and we want to thank everyone who was part of our special day.
