A Little Sentiment

One for all the lovers is a little segment that covers everything from wedding day tips, tricks, ideas & inspiration. Grab a cup of tea, put your feet up & enjoy!

I will be the first person to admit I can be a pretty sentimental person. I have kept letters written back when I was 10, a band shirt that no longer fits from my first concert, I even dried the first bunch of roses my husband ever gave me back when we where dating only a few weeks.

Some may think it is a negative trait as you shouldn't attach feeling to objects, which I think is absolutely true, to a degree. I think though that this quality helps when capturing other peoples stories. I love hearing about how couples met, first time they shared 'I love you', the moment you just 'knew' they where the one & the unique stories of the proposal. I am the biggest sucker for hand written love notes the morning of a wedding, personalized from the heart vows, heirloom engagement rings passed from one generation to the next, the string of pearls grandma gave you that her mum gave her to wear on her wedding day.

I constantly seek out stories & those little things from a wedding day & the special moments.

This young girl is a recent example of that.

As the bridal party where getting ready I asked her to help me get some shots of the bouquet. I noticed her white dress & the lace that adorned it & it instantly reminded me of a wedding dress. I captured a couple of images of her holding the bouquet with vision that it might be a look into her future, to the day when she herself is getting ready for her own wedding. White gown & bouquet in hand.
