Maddie & Ben | Canada Lodge and Lake | Friday 3rd November 2017

Let's rewind back to January 2017 when Maddie and Ben first asked me if I was available to capture their wedding day. My first feelings were excitement, nerves, anxiety but extremely happy. After years of photographing families and their joyous bundles, I was finally taking that step into photographing one of the most special days that people, couples and families experience. It was a 'first' for me, but I thought everybody start's somewhere right? I was lucky enough to experience second shooting over the summer months with the amazing Ryan Welch, which really did give me the boost I needed. I really took on board his laid back, relaxed and fun approach to the day. It definitely put me at ease that's for sure.

Anyway, to the wedding.. I can't express how AMAZING it was. It was filled with happiness from start to finish, with lots of laughs and of course some tears! Everything from the beautiful lace-detailed dress, silk flowers, customised disney shoes to the most amazing venue on a lake. Canada Lodge and Lake have definitely excelled themselves, the scenery is stunning. I Just thought to myself, I am so lucky to work in these places with such warm and welcoming people who I will walk away with as friends for life.

I really cannot thank Maddie and Ben enough for the opportunity. The day after the wedding I wrote a post to say 'Hopefully this is the first of many to come' and with 2018 landing, I am so happy to announce there are many more to come. I will be forever grateful.

Im super excited for 2018 and I cannot wait to show you all the love stories I capture.

Now onto the highlights of Mr and Mrs Fuller's special day, it really was beautiful.
