I first met Martyn and Kate at a wedding I photographed back in 2014. Kate has followed my work since then and I distinctly remembered her when she got in touch.
When Kate enquired she made it clear that the wedding date was changeable- to fit my availability. I can't put into words how astounding that is to me, that their wedding would be moved to fit my schedule but it means the absolute world and only makes capturing their memories that little bit extra special.
We caught up last month, neither of them had changed a day since 2014 and I got to meet their two babies and pride and joy Ruby and Teddy the Shih Tzu!
Whilst I don't normally bring family members along for pre-wedding shoots, Ruby was excited to meet me ahead of the wedding and did an excellent job of cheering on Martyn, who is apparently camera shy. (Lies!)
We had a ball and it's made me even more excited for their wedding next month in Llanrhaeadr Springs.
