It's always to be invited back into the family for shoot another weddings and that's exactly what happened here!
I had the privilege of shooting Becky's sister Abby's wedding a few years back (and some newborn photos a couple of years later!) and I bumped into Becky at a wedding fair which I was exhibiting at. She was browsing around the various stands before she saw my display banner behind mine and shouted "that's ME!" at one of Abby's pics I'd used on it, she was Abby's bridesmaid and was in the pic, she then made eye contact with me and flung her arms around me! "I've been meaning to ask Abby who her photographer was, I was going to get in contact with you, it's my turn now, and here you are, perfect!"
We met for a consultation and caught up about Abby's wedding and about what an amazing day we had back then, we discussed the options and I was booked!
The wedding took place at the AMAZING Bruisyard Hall in Suffolk. It really is a beautiful venue and steeped in history. During the bridal prep, Becky's Dad walked in and greeted me, shook my hand with a slightly puzzled look on his face and said "hang on you're the photographer from my other Daughter Abby's wedding aren't you?!?" I confirmed his suspicions to which the response was "Oh good, I'm glad Becky picked you, you made me look great last time!" Hahaha! Love a compliment!
The day was nothing short of awesome as I knew it would be and it was really great to see some familiar faces again. Becky and James were a dream to work with, as were her family and friends. As I was leaving that night, Becky's Mum gave me a hug, thanked me and said "It's ok Ryan, we'll see you again soon enough, (pointing to across the room) we've got another Daughter over there, it'll be her next so we'll be in touch!"
Hahaha! Thank you so much once again guys and yes........I guess I'll see you all soon!
