An Autumn Themed Wedding
What better way to to beat the autumn blues than to embrace the beauty of the season with an autumn themed wedding?
Orange was the colour of the day.
The bright orange contrasted beautifully with the earth tones and wood that decorated the venue.
Autumn wasn’t the only theme for the day though.
More than just a wedding day
Before I go any further I want to warn you that, although in no way did this cast a morbid tone on the day itself, there is a sad story behind why Becky and Matt chose this particular day to get married.
The 14th September is their daughter Mia’s birthday.
It would have been her third birthday, had she not succumbed to meningitis 18 months ago.
I cannot stress enough how much strength it took Becky and Matt to come to the decision to carry on with their lives after such a loss.
Turning Sadness Into Happiness
They wanted the 14th September to be a happy day.
They wanted it to become their wedding anniversary.
I have young children, so the fear of facing what happened to them is very real for me.
I wanted to to put my heart and soul into every photograph I took for them.
The courage of not just Becky and Matt, but of all little Mia’s loved ones elevated this beyond a wedding day for me.
The least I could do was to give them the best wedding photos I could manage, to give them something they could look back on with pride.
I am proud to have been a part of this day. I expected this to be a really difficult day but what I saw instead was an enormous show of strength.
They would not be defeated by this tragedy.
As you look through the photos, keep an eye out for little Mia.
See ya next time,
