Sometimes during a wedding, I have to pinch myself that “this” is my office. Obviously I’m there to work, but it couldn’t feel more unlike work. I get to watch people laugh and cry, I get to hear about the stories that brought them together, the stories that they probably don’t want a room full of people to hear, I get to see people bust some serious shapes on the dance floor, but most of all, I get to watch 2 people, who all said and done I haven’t known for that long, get married. I get to see them declare their love and commitment to each other, (I know, this is the soppy bit, but stick with me) in front of their friends and family. I get to see the absolute joy and excitement on their faces, like hungry kids in the the biggest of sweet shops! I get to witness, and most importantly, I get to document all of that. Well, my “office” on Saturday was shared with the amazing Poppy and Thom for their Grays Court wedding, and all of the above happened, but that was really just the start of it.
It’s difficult to know where to begin or what to say about Poppy and Thom’s day, there were endless great moments. I might have welled up during the speeches!! I definitely laughed at Poppy’s poem that wasn’t a poem!!! The venue was incredible, it was full of people who couldn’t have been more in love with these guys, and having spent the day with them both now, it’s easy to see why. I think I’m just going to shut up and let you get stuck into their preview, hopefully it shows what a day they had. This is Poppy and Thom;
