This transatlantic fairy tale all began when a boy from Norfolk, UK met a girl from Oregon, US. His name was Harry, and rather fittingly, her name was Megan. Their self proclaimed whirlwind romance came to a climax last weekend, when the pair held a really rather incredible Norfolk garden wedding on Harry’s home turf in Harleston.
Not only are Megan & Harry two incredibly intelligent and beautiful human beings (wait until you see ’em), but their sense of humour was on point. Spilling a mix of both American and British cultural references in to their day, including (but not limited to) cardboard cut outs of the Obamas, the Queen, and of course the more widely known Megan & Harry – to the addition of a ‘first look’ and more.
I had a feeling on the morning of this wedding, that I was definitely going to have a good day. I’d turned up with my brand new Sony gear, excited to shoot my first wedding with it. My expectations were high, but their day exceeded those expectations beyond compare. From the morning – where I was able to flit between the boys, the girls and all of their guests chipping in to make their marquee wedding as perfect as possible. There was always something happening, and as a photographer, that leaves you buzzing.
Not that I would ever try to, but it’s worth saying for emphasis, that I simply couldn’t fault the day. Not one bit. I had an absolutely blast, with a fair few highlights of course! It really moved me, to the point where I could feel the hairs on my neck stand, when Megan stood up with her Husband and thanked her friends and family. She thanked them, not only for their efforts and roles in making such a spectacular day come to life, but for never passing judgement on their decision to marry relatively early on in their relationship.
Nothing makes more of a difference to two people’s freedom to love one another, than the acceptance of those around them that matter most. When she said her thanks to the 140+ faces looking back at her, I felt a true sense of just how much those faces meant to the pair. I instantly understood how this mega hot couple had so many people that wanted to celebrate their love with them. My heart was full!
Sincerely… this is one f*cking excellent wedding.
I think it’s safe to say, this was one hell of a wedding.
