What is the perfect wedding?
So often, the people I meet ask me about the weddings I photograph. Where they were, the kinds of people and what made them such special weddings. I often hear things about brands, nice locations and celebrity designers.
That’s usually when I start changing their mind of what a “perfect wedding” is.
I’ll normally talk about what my couple did in the morning. How they went for a surf together on the beach, or how they made breakfast for each other or helped one another get into their wedding outfits. I know, lots of my couples appreciate the finer brands and so do I, but I don’t particularly take note of those things, when there are so many other moments that mean so much more to me, personally.
I say that as someone watching from the side lines.
As someone, almost a complete stranger at a wedding.
That my stories of the most perfect weddings, are the ones where my couples get to spend the entire day together. And that’s it.
When Mills first called me, I hardly heard the word wedding. Instead, I heard party.
