Arlene got in touch with me last year and asked was I interested in coming up to Carndonagh in Donegal to shoot their wedding video. After checking out the scenery around her hometown i was super excited about the prospects!
I traveled up the night before, had a quick look at the church and then found my accommodation. The next morning i was up early capturing some beautiful shots and it was just as well i did, as the weather turned very bad for the day . But hey, that was not going to stop Arlene and Lee from having a blast.
Being the true optimist I am i kept on saying ” It might clear up later” . No one agreed. But low and behold someone was looking down on the couple as after their speeches the skies cleared and i asked them if they wanted to take advantage and head down to the beach for some shots with just themselves. On the drive home that night i knew i have captured something special and was quietly happy.
Arlene contacted me a few weeks later with some bad news. Unfortunately a personal tragedy for Lee’s family meant the video would have extra significance. Times like this make me realize how important the memories I capture are to people. Thankfully, most times it just takes us a bit longer to realize it.
