Love is like photography. First, you have to remember to shoot by the rules. Then you have to forget the rules and shoot from your heart.
Tina and Joanne are both keen photographers (more on that later) so no pressure for me to capture their wedding moments then!
They met online through their love of photography and set up their first date at an abandoned building (Tina loves to photograph cool abandoned and forgotten buildings, theme parks, towns, etc). Joanne got cold feet on the way to the date and had it not been for her cousin convincing her to attend this relationship might never have developed.
Joanne is an effervescent pocket rocket of a girl who covers her nerves by talking animatedly. Tina is willowy and reserved, happy to let Joanne steal the show. They are quite simply the perfect match for each other. Joanne said she knew from that first date that she would marry Tina. Fast forward a few years and Joanne had planned a romantic proposal under the Forth Railway Bridge. But…she was too excited to wait and proposed one morning in bed!
The Perfect Location
My brides had picked The Old Manor Hotel in Lundin Links, Leven. They have beautiful rooms for an intimate wedding like theirs or medium or large scale weddings.
An Intimate Ceremony
Tina walked down the aisle first with her mum. I love her reaction as she sees Joanne for the first time.
Joanne’s Dad walked her down the aisle. Joanne’s dress was the very first one she tried on and she accessorised it with her dearly departed gran’s pearl necklace and super cool baby pink Doc Martins.
The ceremony was intimate and tailored perfectly to the couple and soon they were Mrs and Mrs.
The weather gods were smiling
Despite rain that week and on the morning of the big day it was dry after the ceremony so we were able to go outside and get some gorgeous pictures of my beautiful brides.
The Icing on the Cake
Was literally the icing on the wedding cake. It was photography themed. I loved it.
It included an edible film roll with pictures of Tina and Joanne.
Then it was time for Tina and Joanne to enjoy their first meal with their family and wife and wife.
As I drove away from the hotel I was reminded of the song lyrics that were dotted around Tina and Joanne’s house when I visited them for their consultation.
“Freeze, frame, pause, rewind, stop.” Pink
It’s a good reminder to be in the moment and enjoy the now. Something I hope Tina and Joanne do as they start their married life together.
