I was so fortunate, last year to get all the beautiful weddings that I did, (hopefully I will get ones like that this year too) Leon & Clara’s was no exception. It was S.T.U.N.N.I.N.G!!!! Again, just like last week’s wedding that I posted, the detail was amazing, we had pets(AWESOME pets), gorgeous flowers, stunning decor and a really pretty couple (if you haven’t seen their engagement session yet, go have a look over here). Clara, is so funny and pulls so many faces that MY cheecks hurt at the end of their wedding day (normally that would be the clients’ cheeks that hurt).
This was also one of those DIY weddings, where friends & family helped with numerous stuff. Great job everyone!
It was a beautiful November afternoon with friends and family, even I got to see some family, friends and clients! But even though this wedding might look like everything ran smoothly, it was a series of unfortunate events (I have always wanted to say that) ;) The brides wedding dress, wasn’t actually the one she was supposed to wear, this one she got at the last minute – the other one was a disaster – I think she got a pretty fantastic dress especially when its on number 99! The suits were rented, but the booking got lost with the people at the shop, and they had to book other suits a week before the wedding, the DJ didn’t show up because he was in a car accident – he is fine now, and luckily they found someone to come fill in for him – Leon started making phone calls after the ceremony to get a DJ. You wouldn’t say it when you look at these photos, Clara and Leon, it was a stunning day, and if you hadn’t told me all the things that went wrong, I never would have guessed, your attitudes towards the problems were so positive, and I know thats how you will look at all the problems life throws at you, well done!
I have uploaded a but load of photos – hope you all enjoy it! My absolute favourite photo is not of the couple, sorry guys! its the one of the cat, Mufassa, where he lifts his one foot up – tooo cute!
