On 22nd October 2016, I had the pleasure of photographing Mr and Mrs Taggart on their wedding day. The wedding took place at Castle Bromwich Hall Hotel on a surprisingly dry and warm October afternoon, surrounded by Stuart and Joann's family and friends. Joann's stunning red dress was the most perfect colour for this autumnal wedding, and was complimented beautifully by her lovely bridesmaids and their sparkly rose bouquets.
Their wedding planner did an amazing job of taking the colour of Joann's wedding dress and theming the decorations around it; creating a really sophisticated and elegant setting for their special day. From the first time I met with Joann to discuss her wedding plans, it was clear to me that their daughter Ruby was the driving force behind their wedding, so that the three of them could be 'the Taggart family'. And what a beautiful family they are. Ruby was involved throughout the wedding day; from a reading in the service, to the wedding breakfast, even helping to cut the cake!
I have tried desperately to think of a personal highlight of the day, but there are simply too many to choose from. Although I have to say, I'm not sure if any Wedding Reception will top the Bride and Groom along with their family and friends dance to Reggae and Garage late into the night!
To say a few tears were shed would be an understatement. Tears of love, happiness and joy, but also of sorrow for those who could not be there to share such a special day with Stuart and Joann, and their families and friends. It was clear to me that this day meant a lot more to them than they may have originally thought; this was not just a wedding for Ruby, or for their family, this was a wedding filled with their 15 years of love and happiness.
I have never felt so welcomed and appreciated as I did on this day. I felt as though I was part of the family, and cannot thank Mr and Mrs Taggart enough for the opportunity to be a part of their wedding day.
