KRISTY & JOHN

 

Kristy & John were married in Horsham on the 2nd of August, 2008. I have never photographed a wedding in Horsham before, but I’m so glad I did this one. There were so many aspects to the day that just took my breath away, and John and Kristy are such a gorgeous, fun and loving couple. Amazingly, Kristy chose to wear her Grandmother’s wedding dress. At the time my sister (and assistant) Sue commented to me that it takes a very special girl to want to wear her Grandmother’s dress. Someone with a deep sense of family and history, and with enough grace and poise to wear a genuine vintage dress. The sight of Kristy in that dress was so moving. I simply can’t imagine how Kristy’s mother must have felt, watching her daughter put on her own mother’s gown.

Kristy is so stunning in this image. I think she has a timeless beauty, like a movie star from the 40’s.

A quiet, intimate moment in the church after the ceremony with just the bride and groom. Oh… and me!

After the ceremony we went back to John and Kristy’s house to escape rain, and take some more portraits.

Luckily the rain didn’t last long.  We then headed back out into the late afternoon sunshine in very ‘sensible’ footwear for the muddy ground. I have to say this is my only wedding party ever to wear blundstone boots. Just awesome!

The gorgeous colours of the dusk sky made a breathtaking backdrop for our last 15 minutes of photographs, before heading to the reception.

Kristy and John’s cake sat next to a framed photograph of Kristy’s grandparents cutting their cake. The ornament from the top of the cake in the old photograph is still in perfect condition! And there is Kristy’s Grandmother, wearing the same wedding gown. I tingled all over when I saw the old photograph.

I should mention that Kristy’s Grandfather attended the wedding, and watched his beautiful Granddaughter walk down the aisle in his late wife’s dress. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the church…. not even their photographer. I often have a little tear in my eye and a lump in my throat during the ceremony when I’m taking photographs, but this was different. I was really crying. It was just so emotional! I do believe that Kristy’s Grandmother was present that day, in heart and spirit. I will always remember this wedding as one of the most touching, emotional events I have ever had the honour of photographing.

 

Charlotte - I had to come back to look at this set. These are so beautiful. So crisp and clean. I love them, and what a sweet bride to wear her Grandmothers dress-she is glowing in it.

Rebecca - Those are lovely. She is stunning!

gillian jukes - An added comment from the brides mum…The dress Kristy wore was 50 years old and as a child I had worn it around my parents farm as a dress-up gown. Shame on me but full credit to the drycleaning company.

Annie Warren - Oh Gillian, how lovely to see a comment from you on here! What a sight that would have been… you as a little girl playing dress-ups in Mummy’s wedding gown! I’m so thrilled to hear your Mum let you do that. It says worlds about what kind of woman she was! She put her little daughters happiness before material possessions. No shame in that what-so ever. (Kudos to the dry cleaning company though!) Now I love these images even more, because I can imagine a sweet little girl prancing around a farm in that dress. It just adds to the history! Lots of love to you…Annie
