Coming from a big family myself, it felt so familiar stepping into Pat’s room as she was getting ready. Mothers and mother-in-laws, cousins and friends, it was a cosy hug of activity.

Tim and Pat’s beautiful outdoor ceremony looked so inviting, and ultrasoft duckling yellow fleece blankets was rolled up on the chairs in case the weather turned.

I wasn’t prepared for the emotion of the day. As a second shooter, I don’t know the couple before the wedding and don’t always know their history (or them), but my eyes was constantly filled with tears as the couple and their family opened their hearts.
