Every now and then you hear a story that really gets to you and you feel a need to help out in any way you can. Some friends of mine were planning and saving for their wedding when a family tragedy struck and their funds were needed elsewhere. In true kiwi spirit their friends gave what they could and the wedding went ahead. I gave them their wedding photography.It was a bit ambitious of me to take this one, having already refused the job when they first asked me to do it for them. I am still recovering from foot surgery. So if you can imagine a beautiful garden wedding ceremony, short hedges down both sides of the aisle, and a photographer sitting on a chair in the middle of it – that was me!It was a beautiful wedding with their children taking part in the ceremony. They have been together for nine years and have already built a family together. If their family grows I hope I get the opportunity to photograph that life event also. I really enjoyed being able to record these precious moments for them and seeing their faces when they saw the photos made it all worth while.
