I don't even know where to start. I've been sitting here for over an hour trying to summarise into words the kind of day I spent with Lauren + Tim. I have never felt more comfortable or welcomed into a client's day like I was at theirs. Lauren + Tim are two of the most kind hearted, hilarious and magnificent human beings I've ever had the privilege of meeting. Tim is a paramedic and Lauren is a high school history teacher - we all clicked instantly!
We spent the majority of our phone calls, emails and text messages talking about equal rights, discussing how annoying teenagers are, gabbing about 'Pretty Little Liars', making 'Game of Thrones' jokes and saying "YAAAAS" too many times. I've never had a wedding that I was this excited for - I legitimately had butterflies I was so excited!
Lauren + Tim wanted to have an intimate day. After all, the story was about them and the love they shared with each other and their 3 gorgeous kids. I approached their day wanting to capture them, and just them. I wanted it to be as honest and candid as possible. Nothing was staged or replicated over and over for that perfect shot - it was just them! I know many people say that their day was "perfect", but theirs truly was everything you could hope for and more!
I also want to take a moment to say that Lauren + Tim's friends and family were rowdy as hell! I LOVED IT! Never have I witnessed a can of whipped cream make it onto the dance floor, but now I can say that I have. Thank you for that one, guys! Between Lauren's 'Hot Cousins' - as she put it - and Tim's best mates, the dance floor went off... into the early morning, long after I left, I'm told.
Thank you, thank you, thank you Lauren + Tim for welcoming me into your lives and letting me capture your day! It was seriously one I will remember for the rest of my life. I've never met clients like you and I'm so happy to be able to call you friends now too!!
P.S. Lauren, thank you for taking 5 mins in your speech to talk about equal right for the LGBTQI community. I have never once cried at a wedding before and you had me blubbering! You are a magnificent human! Thank you xx
Anyway, I'll quit rambling. Enjoy their day below :D
