Iscoyd Park Wedding – Shropshire – Rachel & Tim

amazing rainbow sihouette photo

Rachel and Tim’s wedding is particularly dear to my heart. I’d like to think that one of the things I appreciate an awful lot at weddings is the importance of family. My reasons – well, I’m not only a son but also a brother, a husband and, in the last three years, a father; and as a result of that my heart strings regularly get a good old tugging during a wedding. Naturally, there’s the more obvious moments that this happens; during the speeches, those emotional embraces at key moments, but also the tender touches & little loving glances that can easily go unnoticed. Often, they’re the most powerful displays of the bond between two people. So I often find myself thinking about what emotions people might be going through at a given point during the day and what it would mean if I were able to capture them.

A few weeks after Tim and Rachel’s wedding, Rachel told me her dad had sadly passed away. My heart literally sank and I remembered what an awful time it was when it happened in our own family. I was absolutely devastated. The thought that they were going through the same distressing time was tragic. If you’re reading this and you’ve suffered a similar loss, you’ll know full well that it’s very hard to find any kind of consolation in such times and I’m sure it must have been the same for Rachel and the family.

Looking back on these photos however, I was so glad that Rachel’s dad got to witness her wedding day, experience that proud moment as he walked her down the aisle to marry the love of her life, to see her enjoy the day with the wonderful friends that love her and Tim so much. As a father myself I think I can imagine what that must have meant to him. There’s no doubt he must have been extremely proud.

I’m in very real danger of shedding a tear or two if I carry on writing any more, and really whatever I say just doesn’t seem anywhere near significant enough in a situation like this, so I’ll just end by thanking Rachel and Tim – it was an absolute privilege to be a part of your wonderful day and I hope the photos help the family think back upon happier times both now and in the years to come. Warmest love to you all. X
