Jessica & John | Bibury Court Wedding

These Hands, author unknown, read by Jessica’s sister Kate in church

. . .

These are the hands of your best friend, young and strong and full

of love for you, that are holding yours on your wedding day,

as you promise to love each other today, tomorrow, and forever.

.

These are the hands that will work alongside yours, as together you build your future.

.

These are the hands that will passionately love you and cherish you through

the years, and with the slightest touch, will comfort you like no other.

.

These are the hands that will hold you when fear or grief fills your mind.

.

These are the hands that will countless times wipe the tears

from your eyes; tears of sorrow, and tears of joy.

.

These are the hands that will tenderly hold your children.

.

These are the hands that will help you to hold your family as one.

.

These are the hands that will give you strength when you need it.

.

And lastly, these are the hands that even when wrinkled and aged,

will still be reaching for yours,

still giving you the same unspoken tenderness with just a touch.

. . .

Follow your dreams

I get asked all of the time how I first got into photography, and when I first developed an interest. Well, I guess this photograph sums it up. Please excuse my very uncool 80s pink snowboots and lunchbox, and well, everything really – I’ve never exactly been the coolest of kids!

 

God love my Grandad who used to send off my countless films to Bonusprint in those envelope order packs, only to return with lots of photographs of essentially the same thing, despite the despair of my Mum and Gran. I’d subject my classmates in primary school to portraits in the playground (which I still have in boxes in my office by the way, St Mary’s peeps!) back when none of the teachers batted an eyelid to the fact that I had a camera in school.

Venice on Film

In April of this year, I had 36 hours exploring the Italian wonderland that is Venice. My two goals were to consume as much tiramisu as physically possible and not fall in the canal. I’m pleased to have achieved both!

All shot on my beloved Contax with Fujifilm 400H, rated at 200, and processed by my RPL superstars in Hollywood.
