Rob & Kirsty Lulworth Castle wedding.
Where to start with this epic journey I took with Kirsty and Rob, lets start with the location. Normally one of the first questions I ask the wedding couple is the date and location and as soon as Kirsty said “we are getting married at the stunning location of Lulworth castle” my hopes of getting this booking quickly diminished.
To me Lulworth castle weddings are hard to come by because it is by far one of the best locations in the South Coast. So when Kirsty got back in touch after the consultation wanting to book me I was over the moon. Everything I had been working hard for over the past 4 years had finally paid off! Don’t get me wrong I love all bookings, every day is special, but we all need goals in life to work towards.
As you may have seen from a previous blog post, Rob was a little shy to start with but was incredible for the pre wedding shoot down at Durdle door! The excitement I had rushing home from that shoot to get them on the Mac and edit was a rush I had missed for a while generally in photography. The feedback I had from Kirsty and her New Zealand family was lovely, knowing they really appreciated my work and that it was hanging on a wall on the other side of the world.
My good friend Jake who shoots video in partner with me was also booked and we headed down a few weeks before to walk the venue with Kirsty and Rob. The buzz from walking around the gorgeous venue did not ware off until the day after the wedding and to be honest as I switch on the Mac to write this blog and get started with the editing process I’m still buzzing.
Things I’ve learnt from this wedding:
Every one should invite a Kiwi – they really do know how to party,
Pack sun tan lotion in a cool bag with a cold bottle of water,
and always be prepared for a young child to need a wee during the main group shots!
In all a brilliant day in a stunning location with such an amazing couple who really do bounce of each other. If my wedding day is half as good I’d be happy.
P.S Rob I’ll be stealing some of your one-liners for your speech.
P.P.S I wish you bot all the happiness in the world and look forward to hearing about your next life adventures wether it be here in sunny dorset or there in gorgeous New Zealand.
