Woodbox/Coopers wedding: Andrea and Reece got married!

When Andrea first got in contact with me it was only about four weeks out from her wedding day...she didn't seem the type to leave things to the last minute so I asked a few questions and she told me that her Dad was really sick and so they had moved their wedding date forward so that he would be able to attend and be part of the celebrations. It's a hard thing to contemplate losing a parent so young but Andrea and her Mum, Sharon, were practical and brave but also incredibly thoughtful and caring. It was a real priviledge to watch this lovely family care for each other on this day.

The day started with a very practical attitude to the weather...it was going to rain so Plan B was agreed upon and everything moved forward...no fuss.

There was a flurry of hairspray and flowers and flowergirls and dresses and the amazing skills of Wedding Hair by Jaide and Lee Smith Makeup Artist and then it was time...

This picture was a pretty important one to get. The group photos like this are not usually the most creative, but maybe they're the most important after all?

Meanwhile Reece and his very good men were waiting...and the guests were ready and waiting...

Everyone waiting...

I always love this bit...when it's just the bride and her Dad...

...and then Andrea's Dad, Graham, stopped halfway up the aisle to give her a kiss on the cheek.

And some tissues were discretely taken out of bags and pockets and some eyes got wiped. And everything moved forward...no fuss.

This was always going to be an emotional ceremony...I had warned Pip to wear waterproof mascara! But through the tears it was joyful and heartfelt. And actually just really lovely.

Coopers is such a fabulous venue...even on a wet, winter's day there are lovely places for photos...

Thank you Andrea and Reece for your trust, and your kindness.

Sadly, Andrea's Dad passed away a couple of weeks after the wedding.
