Weddings.  They are jam packed up to the brim full of things going on every which way you look from morning ’till night.

It’s a sensory overload for all attending, and just an absolute treat for a wedding photographer to capture.  It’s an emotional day for sure and these genuine moments are so rewarding to photograph, it can be easy to overlook the smaller, more intimate gestures that can be found.

A gift from a partner or close friend is particularly special, such as this beautiful pocket watch that Roz gave Kelvin on their wedding day at Cooling Castle in Kent.

He wore that watch with pride that day and now it will forever more be a part of him and a memory of their marriage.

Details like this for me as a documentary wedding photographer are an important part of a couple’s day and are key in telling their great story.
