This one is special.
I have really struggled to put into words and select the respective imagery to try and convey just how brilliant it all was. It’s been on my hard drive for 11 months.
Mairin, Colin and their entire family and friends at the wedding were like one collective group. From the youngest person there to the oldest, they all had that the sharpest wit, the best laughs, the most creative of spirits. A thread of connection linked everyone there. Not just the bride and groom.
One of my favourite books as a child was “Anne of the Island”, the 4th book in the Anne of Green Gables series. In the book Anne meets an elderly man, Captain Jim. Even though they are generations apart they become firm friends, in Captain Jims words, they are “kindred spirits”.
And thats the only way I can convey this.
At the marquee erected at Mairins own home, there was a definite assembling of kindred spirits. Young and old, everyone brought the same energy. Brilliant fun and positive vibes in droves. I looked on with my camera and felt really privileged to shoot this lovely homemade wedding, with everyone so chilled out and just loving life.
As the sun set, Mairin and Colin were kind enough to jump into the back of my old jeep (on its last spin as I sold it the next day!) We hoofed it up a grassy hill, praying I didn’t get bogged, and got the most lovely shots of them overlooking were they came from and listening to the crowd laughing in the marquee below. The balloons were just a whim I bought that morning as I just thought Mairin has a really sunny soul. She seemed so full of colour!
Wishing you many laughs in the years ahead together x thanks for letting me witness it for you x
