The Tyn Dwr Hall Wedding Of Chris & Emily
Another amazing day spent in the company of this beautiful family, I last captured Chris’s brothers wedding a couple of years ago at the Albright Hussey. This was to be over the border in North Wales. An equally amazing wedding venue and one I truly relish working at, the fabulous Tyn Dwr Hall.
It is however, tinged with great sadness as I sit here and write this. The passing of a beautiful lady, who’s personality shone throughout the day. Chris’s dear grandmother left us, and with her a big gap appeared in the lives that surrounded her. I often say to my couples, photography is not for the here and now, it is for the tomorrows. If we can but grasp those memories, the joy, the tears and the laughter. Hold them close and never ever let them go, then that is what we must do. Immortalise those transient happenings in what has become a digital negative, then immortalise them we shall.
This is what being a photographer is all about.
I received this message a little while ago, it was sent to me in the form of a review, and was posted by the Lady’s daughter:
“This is a very personal account of how brilliant Phil is, my mum has been very ill over the last four years. When her first grandson married she was reasonably OK and Phil took some lovely pictures of her and dad. Over the last six months mum has declined greatly but in April she managed to attend another grandson’s wedding with Phil once again taking the pictures. Phil had no idea how poorly mum was but he took a series of pics when mum and Dad arrived, to say they were stunning is such an understatement!! They were so natural, capturing mum’s delight on the day. Three weeks ago my mum passed peacefully away. I can’t begin to tell how much those photos mean to us, everyone who has seen them agree they are so special.
Thank you Phil. Xxx”
I am so blessed to have joined many couples, throughout my career in Shropshire and beyond, in capturing weddings and other social gatherings, and it is these moments that I strive to capture at each and every wedding. For me, it is the journey, the story. Emily and Chris’s wedding, in that respect, was no different. I love what I do and do what I love.
I hope this is conveyed in my work, and look forward to each and every wedding with the drive and ambition my couples deserve.
Much love to Chris and Emily, thank you for allowing me to join you on your journey.
