A {Not} First Look

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!

It’s such a cliché but I honestly feel so grateful for every single couple that lets me into their lives to capture one of the most important days they will ever experience. It’s quite often the little moments during the wedding day that become the most memorable for me.

Katrina & Kris were wed on Katrina’s family farm. The location was stunning, a lot of effort had gone into every little detail & family & friends had all helped out to make the day as wonderful as it was. When Katrina explained to me her idea for before the ceremony I was instantly in love with it. They were going to write a letter to each other & exchange them before the ceremony. The letter was then going to be sealed in a box along with some other things during their ceremony, for them to open in 5 years’ time.

They decided to keep tradition of not seeing one another until the ceremony & yet they were separated by only a door. It was just the two of them sharing in this moment. It was one of the most beautiful, intense & emotional moments I have experienced at a wedding.

Doing a first look is often a debated topic & there are many different views on it. I think the two of them sharing this moment, while keep tradition, only made them seeing each other as they walked down the aisle that much more special.
