Most of the weddings I attend involve some stress on the part of either the bride or groom or both but recently at Bellevue Luxury Weddings at Birac I was greeted by two totally unstressed individuals, John and Sarah. I had met them before at a planning meeting and I noticed then they were quite laid back. The seemed to have everything organised and had thought through every detail. So it didn't come as much of a surprise to see they were still relaxed on the day of their wedding.
I arrived early as normal to find John already dressed and ready for the day. He was of course looking forward to the days events but had no concerns at all. What a great attitude I thought. I went off to find Sarah and found her chilling in the bridal suite. Hair and makeup hadn't started yet but there was plenty of time she said. I took some detail photographs, flowers, shoes, dress etc and went off to find John relaxing at the bar. After taking some photographs of him and the best man it was back to Sarah. She was having her hair done by Emma and was drinking champagne, still very relaxed.
And that is how they both stayed throughout the day.
For me the photograph here summed up their relaxed attitude. It was taken late afternoon after all the ceremony, champagne reception and main photographs. I like to take away the bride and groom for some private time together and the first thing they did was find a quiet spot and sit down. John kicked off his shoes and they drank champagne and chatted. Nothing seemed to faze them and that for me made my job easier and the day was very enjoyable indeed, thank you John and Sarah.
