michelle and sandra - converting their civil partnership into marriage

September 12, 2017  •  1 Comment

TEN years to the day that Michelle and Sandra entered into a Civil Partnership together, they had returned to the Hall Garth Hotel, Golf & Spa in Darlington to convert their Civil Partnership into Marriage.  I was asked if I could cover just the ceremony, and a few portraits afterwards, a reduced coverage of a short and sweet hour long package, and my answer was yes!  Of Course!!!

It was a beautiful intimate ceremony, with just Michelle, Sandra, their daughter Maria and I present.  How lovely it was to be able to document their vows and ceremony, and to capture their laughter and happy tears!  I arrived just before 1pm, as requested by the brides-to-be, and as they were getting ready for the ceremony, I had time to take some detailed shots of their room decorations, which they had matched to what they had a decade earlier.  Soon after, the ceremony got underway, as well as all the important parts, Michelle and Sandra had chosen some lovely vows to say to each other, and Maria read a poem beautifully - there wasn't a dry eye in the house!  Afterwards, we headed outside into the grounds for some relaxed, fun portraits, which involved having a wander about, a bit of a chat, whilst stopping every now and again near the weeping willow tree of the old greenhouses to take a few photos.  After an hour, it was time for me to leave the newlyweds and Maria to celebrate as a family.  Ladies, you were awesome, thank you for having me at your special service!

Emily, how beautifully you have told our story! Ten years to the date in the same spot we celebrated our marriage conversion with our very own little girl. We wanted to thank you personally for your kindness, professionalism and talent on the day. Unlike our original big white wedding we chose to celebrate privately this time - you were our only guest. We had not met you previously but had chosen you via a recommendation from another photographer. You arrived as our ‘spur of the moment’ photographer and left as our friend. All within the space of a couple of hours! How lucky we were to have chosen you, thank you for agreeing to photograph our special day.

I could not recommend you and your photography talents enough! What a lovely, genuine talented person you are. On the day you were so generous with your time, kindness and patience. Our ceremony was so very small but you took the time to detail all of our special moments together. We had asked you to capture our little family on the day and we have treasured the memories in the photographs that you have taken.

We still smile at all of the belly laughs that you captured - still not sure what we were laughing at! What beautiful photographs of our little girl too! So lovely to see the happiness in our family reflected back through your lens.

Sandra and I were delighted to have you as our guest on our special day. We would not hesitate to recommend you as a person and a photographer to all of our friends and family. What a lovely lady and very talented photographer you are. We wish you all the very best in everything that you do, love and happy memories,

Michelle, Sandra and Maria x x x
