Cara and Morgan’s Sheldon Wedding

Our first Sheldon wedding

Recently we photographed the wedding of Cara and Morgan.
We thought that it was going to be a great day with all going to plan. Boy did mother nature throw us a curve ball later.
After the ceremony we did some images requested by the couple to show the link between the family and the church.

The Nailcote Hall reception

After those were done we all headed off to the reception at Nailcote Hall Hotel.
Once we got to the hotel mother nature struck with a monsoon the likes of which I hadn’t seen for many years. The ushers had to leap from the limo into the rain and long jump over the puddles.
It was quite late into the proceedings when the rain stopped for long enough for us to go out onto the golf course for a couple of bride and groom portraits.

Those embarrassing questions

I asked Cara a few questions about how she and Morgan got together.
First Meeting: Morgan was in the year below me at school and was friendly with my sister before I knew him properly.
I was out on a night out in town and Morgan was there with some friends, we got chatting and exchanged numbers.

First Date: We went for a drink in a bar local to where we live, very laid back, so we couldn’t bump into anyone we knew! It was all very casual to begin with.

They’re the one: We got on really well and it progressed from there, the rest as they say is history! Pretty soon after being together we knew that we had something that could last. We got on really well and had a similar group of friends.

The proposal: Christmas Day, at my mom and dads house. Very personal and special that my mom and dad could share the proposal. I was very shocked as I thought we wouldn’t ever get engaged, we’d been together over 7 years and had a little boy. But it was a lovely surprise.

One thing about each other: Morgan is a brilliant Dad.
Morgan says He loves how caring I am.

About the wedding

Theme inspiration: I love vintage things, so having a vintage style wedding seemed the obvious choice. I went to quiet a few vintage wedding fairs and got lots of inspiration from there. My wedding notebook was my bible for the 2 years after booking the wedding.

One thing I wish I’d known earlier: How much work is involved and how time consuming it is! Especially when you try to do a lot of it yourself!
