Lois & Ian take the prize for most emotional wedding day during their Oakwell Hall Wedding. When I’m behind the camera, I can usually separate myself from the moments unfolding in front of me. But it was a difficult thing to do that day, and I shed tears down the aisle that would rival the groom’s! It might have been because I know a bit of their story, which is pretty sweet.
These guys met during a ceilidh at Oakwell Hall & Country Park – so it seemed fitting to hold their reception in the same place as this significant meeting! The moment when Ian asked Lois to dance came full circle as they took their first dance together as husband and wife.
The weather played nice most of the day, though we had some rain when the bridal portraits were scheduled. Good thing we could head into the hall with its beautiful windows. And during the evening, once the rain had cleared, the hog roast had been served, and the hall was being cleared to make way for dancing, we grabbed Lois & Ian, and in the final moments of daylight took some of our favourite photos of the day!
So Lois & Ian, thank you for the tears, the laughter, and the emotional embraces. It was an honour to capture your day.
