Every image tells a story. It holds a fragment of time, preserved for an eternity, and when viewed that moment is brought back to life, the sound of the music in the background, the feel of your dress against your body, all brought back to life for you. 

 

Here are some of my favourite moments and the stories behind them.

“He’s taking a picture of our bum!” one of the girls laughed, the group dissolving into roars of laughter…

…Holding tightly, Kayleigh and Karl twirled on the dance floor. Lost in their embrace they gazed lovingly into eachother’s eyes, a lifetime of love and devotion reflected back at them. Even surrounded by loving friends and relatives, this one dance was theirs alone…

…seeing his father’s smile as he danced with bride made his face light up. Respect and admiration filled him as he shared in the joy of the moment…

Grandma plays on a bouncy castle at the Chestnuts in Nuneaton

…as she was helped onto the brightly coloured bouncy castle, her face was transformed in a smile of utter delight. Feeling like a little girl once more she bounced and danced, surrounded by laughing children…

…Craig and Mandy’s first dance was still some hours away, yet here they found themselves, dancing on soft grass instead of a dancefloor, listening to the sounds of their guests enjoying themselves instead of a song. It was a perfect moment in a day filled with so much joy…
