Not sure when my love affair with all things Vintage started, but its been ongoing for awhile. So of course, when I met Skye and Seamus and had a glimpse into her taste and style – I knew I was going to love capturing this wedding. Skye’s Dad (I think) called it a DIY wedding. The reason for this was because she (with a little help from friends and family) did most of it herself. From the pebbles you could throw into the fountain to the hand-crafted Naughts and Crosses, you could literally feel the love, energy, effort and pure synergy that had gone into creating this happy and so very romantic, day.
The whole wedding was and is a beautiful reflection of their personalities and the love that they share. Starting with the groom; with a name like Seamus McCool – what’s more to say!!. A laid back attitude, a best man like Barry and 3 handsome brothers all wearing “News-boy” caps made the groom-side of things easy (on the eye) to photograph.
Having said that, don’t let me get started on Skye. Love love love her wonderful sense of style and inimitability. Her warm personality, genuine love for her man and her truthfulness within herself showed in every part of the day. Lots of real vintage lace and carefully selected bits and bobs all combined to produce a beautifully whimsical package. Complimented beautifully by her Maid-of-Honour, Maxine, the little powder blue Morris Minor and all the love, support and well wishes of friends and family members – it was a day to remember by all I am sure.
Thanks Skye and Seamus – you guys were an incredible pair to witness and document in your declaration of love and foreverness. I really hope my photies do justice to the kind of day it really was.
