This was personal.
Well, every wedding I shoot is personal, no doubt about it. But Jane and Alex’s wedding day resonated with me, for a simple reason.
Edie and Milly. Two beautiful girls. Edie is… so fantastically self contained. So imaginative. So filled with love, laughter. Cheeky as all get out. Milly – well, she is just a tiny baby. Her needs and wants are sometimes too much for her chubby little body to contain. Her inquisitiveness is boundless. Her eyes… always filled with wonder.
Sure, this was their wedding day. Family and friends were there. There were speeches. Ceremonies. All the stuff.
But the whole day, it felt like… like Jane and Alex were planning a big out out. With the kids. Had to keep them busy. Set aside times for feeding. Pack their bags, keep them happy. I know these things so well.
It wasn’t that the day was about the kids, not at all. It was just… well, you can’t put your own children aside for a day to do something. It doesn’t work like that. They will be there, and when you are a parent, it’s the children you are thinking about, not yourselves.
Even on your wedding day. That’s how it is.
This is Jane and Alex’s wedding day. Edie and Milly were a big part of it. This is a story about the four of them.
