Wow! Given some of my recent bookings in South Wales, Leicester and Liverpool, I didn’t think I could get much more excited. Until I was contacted my a beautiful couple last October 2016 named Emily and Connor. Their message felt like it was too good to be true!
“We are getting married February 2018 year on the Riviera Maya beach in Mexico. Would you be interested in being our photographer?”
Erm……. YES! Of course I would lol I literally had to keep reading their message to make sure it was true.
We arranged a time for me to go visit the lovely couple. Some of their family were also there and made me feel very welcome. I was trying not to show my excitement too much and trying to seem too eager as they hadn’t officially told me I was their chosen photographer. But they way they were talking through plans sounded like they had made up their mind.
Then Emily asked “Have you brought your passport?” (they had previously asked I do this)
“Yes” I replied as I handed it across. “Erm, I have to ask?” I said slightly bewildered. “Are you actually booking me for your wedding?”
Emily, Connor and all the family laughed. “Yes we are. Thats why we wanted you to bring your passport silly!”
This for me is an absolute dream wedding. Sunny beaches in Mexico. Emily and Connor are lucky enough to have FOURTY family and friends flying out there to join them. We will all be spending two weeks at the Grand Sirenis Resort. Listed as one of the very finest Wedding and holiday resorts in Mexico.
A couple of days after the wedding we are planning to spend a day where Emily and Connor will get their wedding dress and suit back on and take our time touring the beach and areas for some truly stunning Bride and Groom images. Emily is gorgeous. And I’ve never seen her without her beaming smile. And Connor. I don’t want to boost his ego too much but he has the build of a very in form MMA fighter. Actually does remind me of Connor McGregor a little. They are such a fun and loving couple. And for me to have the chance to capture such lovely, beautiful people, in such an amazing location really is an absolute privilege and honour. And obviously something I am very excited about. Roll on February 2018.
