Ania & Rich had their fabulous wedding back last summer, I’ve been holding back bloging for the new blog and it is here so sorry for the delay….it was having the new blog and website that Ania offered to write a sort of testimonial about how we met and the journey to the big day, Ania’s kind words are below, an amazing couple and an amazing day which started at the fabulous Nottingham Cathedral and finished off with a midnight bonfire in the woods at their parents house in the grounds of Newstead Abbey
Looking back, we haven’t the foggiest how it began. There was definitely a lot of Googling involved. And lots of websites and photos that looked exactly the same as those that had come before. We recall a fair old spell of frustration. Then we found Karl Bratby – Photographer and thought ‘Hang on, this is a bit different, a bit more us’. But we figured that you can’t pick a photographer just by gazing adoringly at a website (as pretty as yours is)…so we asked to meet you.
There we were, sitting on your swanky Chesterfield sofa in your uber-cool studio, surrounded by your fantastic pictures. There were many awards dotted around the place and you were twirling on your swivel chair in a funky pair of Converse. Maybe that’s what it was – your Converse. Or maybe we’ll never know. But whatever, it was pretty clear early doors that we needed you to be the one to capture our wedding day through a lens.
The pre-wed shoot was a real giggle and meant that by the time 14 July came round, we were all like old chums, and that made everything far more relaxed. The thing is, what you did for us on our wedding day was so much more than wave a camera around and take a snazzy piccie or two. It takes something really rare and special to preserve atmosphere and emotion in a way that transports you right back to a moment again. Thanks to that ‘something-you-have-but-which-neither-of-us-can-quite-put-our-finger-on’, we get to re-live our story every single time we look at our wedding photos. And we love it.
A few from the day:
