I gasped when today’s wedding arrived in my inbox! You know you’re in for a treat when a photographer says that the following wedding is “a bit of special one for me, as it is my little Sister”. Wow. Not only am a privileged to feature a wedding so dear to Lucy Shergold’s heart, but it’s such a pleasure to publish one that’s full of such stunning artistry and craft.
Lucy passed on Bella’s details incase I wanted to contact her for some info…but I decided to instead publish what Lucy herself had written, as it was so full of love…
“This was a real home made Wedding, Bella is very creative and her now husband Steve is an artist and musician so between them they made a lot of things. All their own invites, Bella made her own bouquet, customised her shoes, made all the decorations bunting, lavender filled fabric hearts.
All the table decorations, she even made the favour boxes and everything inside, including ceramic hearts, seed packets etc, she decorated her cake with fresh flowers. Steve also played in the evening with his band. I went between being photographer, sister and Mum to Isaac who was also a page boy.
Their story is lovely and against a few odds, Bella met Steve at one of his gig, an older musician! She fell head over heels and against all odds and other peoples opinions they fell in love, and proved to the world that age doesn’t matter. Any fears that I had previously had disappeared on the day listening to them read out there own personal vows to each other, not many dry eyes amongst us.
They had their reception at the Arts Centre where they had first met which was perfect. When they first got together, the couple of old romantics used to spend their Sundays flying kites and making up song lyrics, so it felt apt that kites should feature in their photos. I found a Cath Kidston Kite, but sadly even though it was October we had no wind, but got a few pictures anyway.”
