Well, what can I say about this one...
This was a first - a first of many more to come, a dream come true, a day filled with truly beautiful moments. Ever since I proposed to Rob back in 2008, to our civil partnership ceremony in 2011, to our upgrade to marriage in 2015, to being a wedding photographer myself, I've wanted nothing more than to be able to capture these precious moments for another gay couple.
After much wishing and dropping a multitude of hints on my Facebook page, to writing a blog that almost instantly got the attention of George and his now husband, Jason, I finally got what I wanted. My mum always said that you make your own dreams come true, and as always, she was right. You are the builder of your own dreams, so there's no point just dreaming them, you have to chase them and make them come true.
Thursday 24th August was the day Jason and George's dreams came true, and the moment they said their 'I do's' I had to hold back a tear or two. That moment made me feel every emotion I felt the day Rob and I said 'I do' to one another.
It was similar to our day on so many levels: A town hall ceremony at the Bournemouth Town Hall, followed by the reception at The Dudsbury Country Club, attended by their closest family and friends. The boys suits were from Zara and River Island, the beautiful wedding cake from Pandora's Bakery in Ferndown, and flowers/buttonholes from Amore Flowers.
Best of all for me, was I finally got to make use of my coloured smoke flares. I've been dying to use them, and both grooms were totally up for having a few shots done with them.
For those who don't already know, George is a fabulous drag artist known as Marilyn Mountbatten, and Jason, a drag DJ, Miss SeeQueen. Go follow them on Instagram, or better still, go see them live at Cafe Jagos before they head off on their next big adventure together, to London.
You guys helped make a dream of mine come true, so I wish you both the brightest future together. I hope all of your dreams come true.
As always, here's a selection of photos from their day. Enjoy!
Until next time,
