This is an expletive free website. Well, ‘ish. A bit of a shame as I’d like to litter this unbelievable wedding with a number of words wholly unsuitable for a family audience.
Can I start at the beginning. Not of today, but of the day when Rozie and Tom (pre-wedding shoot-tastic) came to my house and my fingers being crossed that they’d book from the moment we met. It must have worked, because here we were, last Saturday, at the Park House Hotel and a day that had my jaw on the floor from the word go. This might be a bit of a stream of consciousness because the words are falling out faster than I can type. Forgive me, but I woke up on Saturday buzzing and if I’m honest it hasn’t stopped yet. These people are to thank.
Bridesmaids. Louise, Sarah, Ruth, Kate. Thank you all. For the endless ribbing (although I’m still not sure about the nickname), for your senses of humour, for the way you were all day. You were immense.
Janine and Keith, for just being so lovely all day long and for making me feel so welcome
My colleagues on the day, a set of world-class pros. Jay, your flowers were off the scale. Blindingly good work. Russ and Andrew of White Star Pictures, videographers showing yet again that we can all work together, and have a damn good laugh while we do it. Vanilla (and Sally in particular), for your stunning food as ever. Everyone at The Tithe Barn, I’ve never seen the place look better than today.
Have I forgotten anyone?
Ahhhh, the reason 150 of us gathered in Sussex and Hampshire last weekend.
Rozie and Tom. Mr and Mrs Hunter. The Scoops.
Tom. Dude. Film star looks. He’s a bloody surgeon ladies and off the market. Look at Rozie and you can see why though eh. A ridiculously good-looking couple. But looks are nothing without the personality and character behind it and Tom has it in spades. He loves this girl, and he loves her fiercely. There’s a shot below, just before Rozie’s arrival where his eyes are burning for her. For the moments and life to come.
A life with Rozie. A very, very special girl indeed. Didn’t stop smiling all day long. In fact I don’t think I’ve ever seen her without a smile on her face. A smile more than matched by endless warmth, breathtaking elegance and beauty and an ability to make everyone around feel like they really matter to her. Janine and Keith, you’ve done some job here. I still remember a text she sent me a month or so ahead of the wedding which ended with ‘I can’t bloody wait to marry this boy. I love him so much’. Hell. Yes.
Words don’t really do you justice, so I hope what you see below does. There was one tough bit about this wedding and that was getting the number of photographs in this post to a manageable number. I still think I failed there. There’s a lot. No apologies for that. The day needs it.
Rozie. Tom. Scoops. Legends. This is you…..totes emosh.
