This was quite a wedding for many reasons. This was also the last one for us in 2014, and perfect one to go out on.
Daniel and Heather decided not to see each other before the ceremony. Daniel got ready at his family's home, where the wedding took place. The property has actually been in the family for a few generations – a fact you all know I loved. Heather got ready at a hotel in Newport. While her girls got dressed Heather seemed to float around the suite. Looking back we all should have seen what was to happen later. After getting her dress on and taking a few portraits we made our way downstairs to take photos of her and the girls. I quickly went outside to find the spot and when I came back in Heather was crying slightly. We carried on though and went outside. That's when it all hit her so completely and overwhelmingly. It was her wedding day – a lot of attention on her, which is difficult for a lot of brides to take – she hadn't seen Daniel that day – it was all a little too much. She went from crying - to laughing - to calm (eating a carrot or two in between) - and then crying again. It was a roller coaster, and one you can be sure I photographed the whole time. I mean – that's the stuff I LOVE! That's the real stuff. Heather kindly agreed to let me show some of the photos here, and I'm so glad she did.
A fun thing to note, perhaps to give other couples an idea…Daniel collected whiskies over the year they were planning their wedding to have a special whiskey bar during the reception. It was quite impressive, and it looked beautiful with the candle light. The bar was a great place to photograph people because of the light and also because people tended to gather there when not dancing.
This being our last wedding of 2014 Peter and I celebrated with a half hour left and partook in a taste each. I had the Pinhook, and enjoyed every drop. We photographed the complete list and have hopes of making our way through most of it over time.
Heather & Daniel work so well together. I love how much she loves him, and the way Daniel obviously adores her. Their day was all around wonderful.
Thank you Heather & Daniel for having us! We loved being there to celebrate with you!
