and breathe

Journal

“The day just flew by” or “it was all a bit of a blur” are phrases you’ll hear all the time. 

Months, sometimes years of planning that culminate in a remarkable day that you’ll relive through your memories and will constantly surface through photos, videos, conversations. 

Open your eyes and stay in the moment because in the future you’ll close your eyes and try to remember it all.

Those rituals and ceremonies: Walking down the aisle; The proclamation that you’re now man and wife;  Eyes on you as you slow dance your first dance.

Then remember those small ones moments: The flutters of butterflies at the realisation; your partner’s eyes when they see you; your partner’s face when it’s official; your heartbeat

Try not to: be the wedding planner; be the chief organizer; be the standards bearer; get caught in the storm; think too far ahead.

Try to: be the eye of the storm; be demanding of prosecco / tea; be in the moment; be present; and most importantly – trust your photographer.
