"A soulmate is someone to whom we feel profoundly connected, as though the communicating and communing that take place
between us were not the product of intentional efforts, but rather a divine grace."

~Thomas Moore

Lina and Frank got married last month. Not being a wedding photographer, I was somewhat reluctant, but incredibly humbled when Lina rang me in May to ask if I would be their wedding photographer. When someone says to you, 'I always said that if I was going to get married again, you would be the only person I would want to do my photography" - that's a huge honour. And more than a little bit of pressure!

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't feeling extremely uncomfortable ALL day. I couldn't help but feel very conscious of the fact that I'm not a wedding photographer. Or even a professional photographer. The one thing I didn't want to do was mess up their most precious memories. It's not easy when you know you've only got one chance to get it right - and I'm not sure it's something I'd want to do for a living.

Thankfully, some of them actually turned out ok!

I've only ever shot two other weddings, and both were for family members. I certainly felt the pressure. It's probably not something I would ever have agreed to do if it wasn't Lina. But when someone tells you that both they and their husband cried when they saw a photo that you'd taken of the groom's father on their wedding day, then you know, you must have done something right - and that for as long as you continue to be a photographer, no greater or more meaningful a compliment will ever be paid.

Thank you, Lina and Frank, for letting me share your special day - and for entrusting me to record it for you.

And thank you for allowing me to make some of the photos public for my portfolio. I've shared a few other images here.

Love & Light

Tracy xx
