As soon as pressed the shutter on my camera, I knew I had captured a really special moment of a very proud mother of the bride.

This photo actually appears in my previous blog post for Grace and Phil’s wedding at Kelham House in Newark but because I feel it’s so special, I wanted to do a standalone blog post and include it in my “Hey, remember this/” series.

When Grace’s mum walked into the bridal suite, her breath was literally taken away when she her beautiful daughter in her wedding dress.

I’m very close to my own mum so this photo would mean a lot to me and it’s a photo that I hope will be treasured for years to come.

This is one of the reasons I prefer to take a documentary approach to wedding photography. Whilst a lot of wedding photos will appear to look documentary but are actually set up. For me, taking photos of moments that really happen are so much more authentic.

If you like photo and my work and would like to share it on your social media pages, please use one of the links at the end of the post.

If you are getting married and would like to enquire of my availability, please get in touch.

I am now taking bookings for 2018 and still have availability in 2017.
